The Israeli campaign to humiliate Barack Obama in public will not pay off. When Mitchell arrives, he will arrive with an ultimatum. Bibi has made it personal and he will soon understand that he picked a fight with the wrong guy. A total and utter freeze of all settlement activites are requested. The upgrading of the Saudi military and nuclear technology to Egypt will just be the start of things. Closer military ties with the Gulf States will follow and an easing of the pressure on Iran next. The disengagement of US-Israeli special relationship will follow. Then if Netanyahu doesn't get it, 'dual projects' will be put on hold. The Russian will do their part as will the EU, China and the UN. The isolation of Israel will take a couple of years, but it's in the making. Build your 3000 housing projects, I couldn't be happier.
