Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met his fellow pompous prime minister, Silvio Berlusconi in order that their combined brains could discover solutions to the Middle East Crisis. Berlusconi warmly endorsed the Netanyahu idea that a future Palestinian state must be demilitarized, but somewhat confused his friend by also urging an end to building settlements on the West Bank. The Italian leader did not express any new idea other than ones being urged by President Obama that Israel must end building of new settlements which are regarded as an obstacle to peace.
Benjamin Netanyahu still does not get the message– George Bush no longer is in power and most American Jews support peace in the Middle East as expressed by President Obama. Benjamin, George will not come running to your rescue. Heck, you can’t even get a blockhead like Berlusconi to support your weird ideas about peace in the Middle East.
