OBSCENE

What is Mr. Obama afraid of?
Is he a total prisoner of the US-Israel lobby?
It is difficult to understand that America has to bend to Israel’s will.

Obama letter confirms Palestinian fears

The White House would also allow Israel to keep a military presence in the West Bank’s Jordan Valley, even after the creation of a Palestinian state; continue controlling the borders of the Palestinian territories to prevent smuggling; provide Israel with enhanced weapons systems, security guarantees and increase its billions of dollars in annual aid; and create a regional security pact against Iran.

The first is that the US president, much like his predecessors, is in no position to act as an honest broker. His interests in the negotiations largely coincide with Israel’s.

The second conclusion — already strongly suspected by Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian Authority president, and his advisers — is that Netanyahu, despite his professed desire to establish a Palestinian state, is being insincere.

The letter’s contents have also been partly confirmed by Jewish US senators who attended a briefing last week from Ross.
