  1. If he sticks to the guidelines he laid out, he will have a solid national consensus behind him in standing up to Obama should Obama try to force anything on Israel that goes against this.

  2. Yes, he has the guidelines and the nation behind him to defy Obama, Palestinians, Arabs, Europeans, justice, reason. He should be able to protect the status quo until the next war with Arabs. Bravo!

    The last THREE wars Israel has fought (all within the last 10 years), was EACH OF THEM, fought when there was a “peace” government in power in Israel, committed to the “2-state solution” and the creation of a Palestinian state.
    The quietest period in Israel since the Oslo fiasco was foisted on Israel in 1993 was during Netanyahu was in power 1996-1999 and that was a government that opposed the creation of a Palestinian state. IT IS THE ‘PEACE PROCESS” THAT LEADS TO WAR.

    No matter how you dance around it it’s still no denying the chicken ranch.
