1) It doesn't matter wether or not Netanyahu is ready to make peace, which he is.The REAL issue is wether or not the PA is viable enough to confront hamas, thus making peace possible.Up to this moment, the PA has proven to be inept and corrupt, since it is unwilling/incapable of uniting all palestinians. Moreover, the PA STILL refuses to make significant concessions to Israel, not does it recognize Israel's Jewish character, nor Israel's right to exist.2) Obama's sanctions on Iran prove to be a Cath-22 situation: too harsh sanctions will be met with vetoes in the Security Council, which will only accept watered-down sanctions, which won't stop Iran's nuclear program.Even a US nuclear umbrella for Israel cannot stop Iran (or its proxies) from dropping the bomb on Israel: so what if the US retaliates? For Israel it will be too late, since Israel will have stopped existing.No Obama visit can change the two above mentioned facts.
