Netanyahu is obviously getting flack from the various political factions that propped up his campaign to get him into power. In short he has painted himself into a corner with his promises and is now trying to placate by issuing ridiculous statements like this. How on earth can anybody take Israel's political initiatives seriously when he comes out with this nonsense? Is there anybody going to take control in Israel and come up with some immediate and meaningful dialogue? Don't hold your breath!
