"During the past few weeks, Netanyahu invested a great deal of effort in trying to convince the leaders of the world that he is serious about peace with the Palestinians. He asked them to ignore the resumption of settlement construction" // The most obvious way to show he was serious would have been to extend the freeze. It was clear that asking them to ignore the resumption of settlement construction meant that he wasn't. // Netanyahu has Lieberman on one shoulder and Barak on the other. Unfortunately - to paraphrase the Ladino havdala - sobre su cabeza does not reside Shehina de Dio. Unfortunately for us, that is. What it does show is the limits of Netanyahu's zigs and zags. According to past performance, he's likely to be closer to Lieberman's position of never in a million years than to Barak's based on 67 borders including East Jerusalem, but he'll choose neither. // Lieberman is only refusing to speak with forked tongue after all. He said to them what he says to us. Refreshing!
