Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

While the Geneva so-called deal is bringing American-Israeli relations to its lowest point in recent history, if not ever, the second track of Obama’s betrayal of Israel is ongoing: new pressures are expected to get the negotiations with the Palestinians “somewhere”. And that’s the problem. Just as he and Kerry have done with the Iranians, they are more interested in getting anywhere, even if it’s a terrible deal for Israel, rather than admit they got nowhere. Jonathan Tobin spells out below what’s likely to come, and soon. But there is a silver lining, and as always it remains the same. Thanks to the Palestinians’ entirely predictable rejection of any concession, above all the one that would lead them to merely admit that Israel is the only Jewish state in the world, i.e. the state of the Jewish people, they will stonewall and end up derailing again the American president’s plan. At that point, it may be possible that, at long last, the US president will realize that his only option left is to put pressure on - gosh - the Palestinians rather than Israel. It would be an ironic paradox that in order to salvage what he can on that front just as his second and final term comes to an end, Obama will be forced by the Palestinians to make concessions of his own in order to force them to make concessions to Israel for the peace negotiations to finally move, if only a little, in the direction of peace.

    What a data of un-ambiguity and preserveness of precious know-how concerning unpredicted emotions.

    I'm not sure why but this weblog is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I'll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
