Netanyahu stands strong in the end

While appearing to bend to pressure from the West, Israel PM Binyamin Netanyahu publicly accepted in concept the idea of a Palestinian state existing alongside Israel; however, the leader attached some preconditions that nearly assured Israel’s security under such a plan, such as that Palestine could have no standing military with which to attack Israel, and that the Palestinian state would have to recognize Israel’s right to exist.

Of course, this prompted a rejection of any peace talks by Palestinians, who are unwilling to accept anything short of total surrender and vacating of the land by all Jews as acceptable terms for a negotiated peace. So let President Obama assume victory if he wishes; at least President Netanyahu knows the real score, even if he’s more in need of a diet pill than our chief executive.
