"Obama siad : There are going to be a whole bunch of folks in the region who want to undermine these negotiations . We saw it when Hamas carried out these horrific attacks against civilians". If Abbas is saying he is 'ready for peace, he must be lying to the back of his teeth. It is not a 'bunch of folk', as Obama described them. It is far more greater than that. It is a bunch that makes the " American National Strategy " crippled and can't be saved by Israel. PS: A humble advice: If the US wants to save its "National Strategy; Obama must publicly declare and in a definitive loud voice that the US is a friend of Israel and the enemies of Israel are the enemies of the U.S.A. That what will give an end to this conflict. Anything less than that will never work ! This what will make the leading Arab Countries think seriously about their futures !!
