In their own words

Netanyahu/Obama... clash/not clash? Much is being penned about their different approaches to Iran and the Palestinian question and how, according to many observers, when the two met the Earth didn't move.

But it seems to me a head on collision between the Zionist Entity and its perennial benefactor, Holy Land II, is now rapidly becoming unavoidable.

The Far-Right Israeli leadership has had time to think things over during Obama's first rather inconsequential hundred days and they've reached some conclusions. While Obama's demeanour towards Israel seems at first glance to still require some tea leaves reading, there is little doubt the President wants movement on the Palestinian question, the People in the Bunker however, clearly do not. And they're getting increasingly vocal about it. With Bibi's coalition being extremely fragile on the Palestinian issue, it'll be crunch time for him too, in the next few weeks rather than months, IMHO. Phil Weiss (soon to visit Gaza, BTW) wisely spent few words on it:

Likud MK Danny Danon in support of the "Alternatives to the Two-State Outlook"conference that will be held this upcoming Tuesday:

"We need to come out of the closet and say that we are proud to be anti-Palestinian state."

The event is being organized by Likud MK Tzipi Hotovely, who also explained, "We are in a situation where Obama is presenting a diplomatic plan when it is clear to everyone that the two-state solution failed. Israel must have a deep debate and present an alternative, so the world will know that the two-state solution is not inevitable." From the Jerusalem Post article, "Right seeking alternatives to 2-states."

In the long run, an Israel with a Jewish minority is not in the cards.

Israel's relationship with the US is dialectical. I expect Netanyahu, to go lockstop with Obama. There is no other choice realistically.

The problem is Bibi's coalition is inherently unstable. Following Obama's suit will endanger it.
