    holy cow, bibi! are you really serious? what agreements are left to unravel that israel hasn't already? and honestly, what unilateral actions would israel take that wouldn't destroy what little remains of the facade it presents to the world? what do you think is going to happen when the u.n. recognizes the proposed palestinian state and it's granted u.n. membership? are you ready for the sanctions that will surely be coming your way if you do anything above and beyond what you're doing now? no boycotts...just economic "sanctions" levied by the unsc should you move against the palestinians. bibi, are you naive enough to believe that the u.s. will oblige israel with its veto over THIS issue? you must get that notion out of your head if in fact you DO believe it. the often professed commitment to israel by the u.s. is towards its security; NOT its occupations and settlement enterprise, to which u.s. is opposed. it's unlikely that a u.s. vote on this issue would be favorable to israel, and in doing so, or even by just abstaining, the u.s. would not be breaking its commitment to israel's security.
