Barack Obama may think of himself as president of the world.   However Israeli Prime Misister Benajim Benjamin Netanyahu is insisting on acting in Irrael’s best interest, and not Obama’s, McClatchy Newspapers:

ERUSALEM – In a direct challenge to President Barack Obama’s commitment to rejuvenate moribund Mideast peace talks, Israel on Thursday dismissed American-led efforts to establish a Palestinian state and laid out new conditions for renewed negotiationsPalestinians to accept Israel as a Jewish state in any future negotiations

What BO overlooks, or is just too stupid tp realize, is that there can be no two state soluition with two nations living in peace, unless both states accept the right of the other to exist:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that he’d require – a demand that Palestinians have up to now rejected – Israeli government officials said

The Palistinians have never accepted the right of the State of Israel to exist.   Until they do, they can be no peace and no two state solution.
