What is at stake, I believe, is not a falling out with the U.S. but a long term crisis in Israeli politics being exacerbate by recent developments such as the recent UNGA vote giving the Palestinians legal means in the international arena to confront Israel in ways that are likely to be traumatizing to Israel's political process. If Netanyahu is angry at Obama it is because Obama did not stop the PA from going to the UN this time around. Israeli politicians have been shaken by the implications of the PA's heightened international standing----Israel may be forced by the weight of international law to negotiate a peace agreement which would result in the realization of a viable Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital. Such a development would be an extremely difficult pill to swallow.
