What is more so, are his comments. I have held these very views myself for sometime (and yes I am irrelevant too). However, many observers (who are relevant), from both neutral, and those with an interest in the process hold very similar views. Obama is attempting to ensure that these talks stay on track and without the routine "interruptions". However, he has made numerous mis-calculations. Mubarak and King Abdullah have interests in these talks, but they are virtually irrelevant players. This was planned by Netanyahu himself. Remember the surprise visits to Egypt and Jordan? Anyway, If you invite those two, Assad should be there, and perhaps even a representative of Iran and Hamas. It may be a bitter pill to swallow, but if you are serious and genuine about true peace, these are players that also need to involved. As Ahmed Tibi says, Netanyahu does not enter these talks in good faith, and unless the world powers apply pressure to the US and Israel, Netanyahu will fool everyone, yet again, and the biggest fool will turn out to be Obama...
