Netanyahu also spoke to a student audience when he made his now infamous Bar Ilan speech advocating a 2-state settlement. We now know - even if we chose to give him the benefit of the doubt then - that he was simply playing games, that his administration had no intention of reaching a viable solution to the conflict. So Obama? I welcome his decision to make his keynote speech of the visit to students but it is what happens over the rest of his time in office that really matters. Only the West and most specifically the US has the clout to bring about real change. Nothing happened during Obama's first term in office, can we be any more optimistic this time?
