    Look, I don't know who is weak or not. What Mr. Netanyahu and all parties concerned, need to start to think about is that they need to use the American President to accomplish long term peace goals for Israel and Palestinian people. More of the same, despite internal political support, is not in the interest of either of these parties. While American commitment to Israel has been unmatched in the world and unwavering by all US politicians; there have been those in private who have wondered where US support should stop. Some day that line will be found. Most of all, it peace is for the people who live in the region. Honestly, they need to find a way to resolve this or live in war. They have learned to live in war, or a kind of war, but it has not been healthy for all involved. Mr. Netanyahu has been here before. This time he needs to lead his countrymen and a find the partner he needs to accomplish peace. Not a simple task. But not one he can accomplish if he is playing games.
