Israel's foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, perhaps set the stage for the meeting by earlier informing his constituency that Obama 'will do as he's told,' an attitude reminiscent of the arrogance Netanyahu reportedly displayed during his first meeting with Bill Clinton in the 90s.

No one would have guessed that Iran is Nazi Germany and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad its Hitler, but that is precisely what Shimon Peres announced the other day. It brought reactions, like this one: a commentary by the American Rabbi Michael Lerner, editor of Tikkun Magazine, of an article written about Shimon Peres by the Israeli peace activist, Uri Avnery.
Avnery's article is cynically entitled by Tikkun, Iran is not Nazi Germany, and "Sir Winston Peres" is a Disaster (Link HERE for the original).

You could read about this great breakthrough on Haaretz, the Israeli newspaper yesterday, that Netanyahu is now calling for a Palestinian state! Who could have believed it?
Middle East envoy Tony Blair stated in an interview in the current edition of Time Magazine that in talks with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli premier suggested to Blair that a Palestinian state be established from the bottom up.
