    I have just been amazed at Bibi's bumbling in dealing with the Administration. First, no matter what Bibi says, US sentiment is very negative and tends to blame Israel for the Biden situation. Whenever one reads about it here, it usually includes the word "snub." The price of this incident is that it moved East Jerusalem to the focus of public attention here and in the Administration as well. This was hugely costly. The option of trading most of the West Bank for East Jerusalem is quickly fading away. The PA is clearly feeling in a strong position, and has been showing it. The last move by Bibi--these conciliatory moves toward the PA smells of panic and only increases the view here that Bibi is weak and a captive of the religious right. Very bad situation, indeed.
