Let the Israelis keep stalling and lying and playing victim. The shift in policy will soon make them make the most important decision in their nation's history. Do the Israelis split from the US in a clean break and lose their protection at the UN, whose resolutions have targeted Israeli contraventions of international law more than any other country in the history of the UN, and lose their annual US taxpayer subsidies? Or do the Israelis pay the political capital and retreat from the ILLEGAL settlements and sign the NPT and gain international recognition. And 47% of Israelis think the settlements should be abandoned while 39% say keep the settlements at all costs. Clearly it is a nation divided with charlatans like Bibi and Lieberman calling the shots. Their time will soon come to an end and maybe Ehud Barak is in line as the next PM and I think he will lead that country in a better direction.
