    because the handwriting seems to be on the wall. Between this promise by Obama, the Quartet's recently stated resolve toward the same, and the word of his intent to call a summit if the talks fail; things are definitely looking up for the creation of a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders. And anyone who doesn't think that Netanyahu and his bunch aren't worried about the prospects is fooling himself. And what Obama, and more recently Clinton, have said is that the "United States" does not intend to impose a settlement; they've said nothing about not supporting an internationally imposed settlement or perhaps even a unilaterally declared Palestinian state. And either of these two is likely to fly, especially with the U.S. supporting it. Most, if not all, of the western countries will follow the U.S. lead on the issue. Look for Netanyahu to get a bit more serious about it in the near future, and also look for attempts by Israel to stir up the hornets nest; because a flare up of the conflict is the ONLY viable alternative that Israel has to fend off what appears to be in the making. But then the Palestinians are a little better at restraint than they once were. And the goods news is that Israel's not likely to be able to swing anything without the world knowing that it has. Those days are over.
