Why would Netanyahu draw attention to the difference between Obama’s points and Israeli expectations? Obama’s semantics were scrupulously correct, and he threw in all the Israeli narrative about terrorism and what not. In fact, Gideon Levy and Aluf Benn (perceptive analysts that they are) were fooled. See their columns in the immediate aftermath of Obama’s speech. Only when Netanyahu kicked up a ruckus did people realize that Obama’s lexicon is not the same as Israel’s.
