Reproducing failure

Having utterly failed to get Israel to freeze Jewish settlement expansion in the West Bank, especially in East Jerusalem, the Obama administration is now asking Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) to resume peace talks as soon as possible.

At the same time, the PA is backed against a wall, as initiating a new round of open-ended talks with Israel would be deeply unpopular amongst Palestinians. Fatah, the backbone of the PA, risks losing its recently enhanced popularity if another exhausting round of peace talks with Israel proves fruitless, as most Palestinians and Arabs believe it will be, barring decisive US interference that would force Israel to take a strategic decision to give up the spoils of occupation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama has utterly caved in to Netanyahu on the settlements issue, allegedly to "buy time" for his strategy with Iran.

Obama is about to experience the harsh reality that Israel never keeps its promises, except to itself in terms of acquiring more and more territory - by any means necessary.
