It is not surprising that President Barack Obama boasted of his firm support for Israel, given that he wants the support of American Jewish voters. He once again stood up for the inane ideas of Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and turned his back on peace. Back in the Middle East, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, finally gave up in his attempts to reach a peace agreement based on 1967 borders. “If we determine the borders it is possible to return to negotiations, but the Israelis don’t want to determine the borders.”
Bibi Netanyahu places votes from settlers and religious fanatics as more important than ending a conflict which has raged for over half a century.
