Obama’s Middle East Fallacy – Jackson Diehl
(Dailyalert.org, Mar. 17, 2014)

Netanyahu has resigned himself to the likelihood that the U.S. framework will include provisions he’s not ready to endorse. Abbas has not. “There is no way. We will not accept,” the Palestinian news agency quoted him as saying of the Jewish-state principle on March 7. Two days later, Abbas persuaded the moribund Arab League to adopt a resolution backing him up. He’s said much the same about Israeli troops on the Palestinian-Jordanian border.

    Why does Abbas dare to publicly campaign against the U.S. and Israeli position even before arriving in Washington? Abbas expects to sit back if the talks fail, submit petitions to the UN, and watch the anti-Israel boycotts mushroom, while paying no price of his own. (Washington Post)
