Very good piece. Netanyahu believes, and always has believed, that time is on his side. That if he (Israel) just continues to wait it out and be tough and uncompromsing, eventually the Palestinians will cry uncle and agree to a rump "state." The wait goes on. Of course the irony is that by pursuing this course, he increasingly endangers Israel's security rather than strenghening it.
