Expansion of the settlements isn't just something that Israel does to fill the time until peace comes along. Expansion is a choice Israel has made over and over again, in preference to peace. Lately, Bibi has said it is possible to have both expansion and peace. Apparently the only people in the world who believed him were the American government. Well, that counts as another win for Bibi. Obama is halfway through his term of office and he is farther frmo peace today than he was when he took office. In other words, he is not even going in the right direction. He can make a start in the right direction by disregarding anything an Israeli politician tells him. He should watch their actions instead. Israeli politicians are not that clever. Sadly though, they are more clever than Obama.
