Obama is using this theater to convince Jews that he is on Israel's side of the conflict, that he will never coerce Israel into an agreement that it does not want, and that they will get to keep and expand what they have already usurped in the West Bank. In fact Obama has twice given Israel the shaft in the past month. He has forced Netanyahu to kill two laws which would have amounted to the defacto annexation of the West Bank. There is more to come folks. Prepare for the worst.
