Obama Reacts to Netanyahu’s Speech: "Don't Politicize US-Israeli Relations"
Reporter: Now that you’ve had a chance to read the Prime Minister’s remarks at least, do you feel like the speech he gave was appropriate, considering his upcoming elections and the upcoming deadline?

Did Iran come up at all, and are you expecting any signs of support from them vis-à-vis your position versus the Prime Minister?

To Hamas or Not to Hamas? Netanyahu's Prison Vision for Gaza.

 To Hamas or Not to Hamas? Netanyahu's Prison Vision for Gaza.
The context: Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu refused for years to negotiate with the Palestinians until they had a unified government, even when their leader was willing to discuss a two state solution. Then a government did coalesce...but it happened to be the often loathsome Hamas. Netanyahu refused again. Then the Israeli teenagers were kidnapped by members of Hamas. This is the never-ending proof that Benjamin Netanyahu was never serious about the peace process between Israel and Palestine.
