Every president of the USA since Johnson has supported the position stated clearly by Obama a year ago. Livni and Olmert were near completion of negotiations with Palestine with almost a mirror image of the position taken by the USA presidents. It is Netanyahu that discarde all prior Israeli efforts for peace and chose intransigence as the new strategy. Congress has pandered to Netanyahu. It has obstructed President Obama in effecting peace in the Middle East. Congress has betrayed the American people by destroying the USA's strategic alliances with the oil producing Arab nations.
