Those who hate the idea of peace are delighted. They are delighted to say 'the palestinians never miss a chance,' while they are glad that Netanyahu refused any chance. Netanyahu is delighted, for he may claim to the small percentage of Israelis who want peace, that the Arab Union refused it. Hamas is most delighted of all, because the idea that by waging peace the Palestinians might win a nation has been destroyed. Hamas has been vindicated by Israel and given another chance to pursue war as a solution. The United States, the nation which wanted peace, but was unwilling to do anything necessary, which is to say threaten to cut Israel off from American welfare and it's automatic veto in the UN, will never comprehend that it was Obama, as with Clinton before him, that destroyed any hope for peace and served their masters in Israel instead of their own nation. The last American President to have any real influence over Israel was George Herbert Walker Bush, some 20 years ago. He was responsible for Oslo as Clinton, GW Bush and Obama have betrayed it. Israel will never give up the dream of Judea and Samaria without the United States refusing to fund and protect that enterprise. Obama has kissed his Massa Netanyahu on his posterior and all Obama has achieved is the contempt of everyone in Israel.
