Netanyahu eats Obama for breakfast

The more innocuous title of this next phase of the Obama Middle East peace plan is not, I give up but, "Obama doubtful on Middle East peace." Al Jezeera breaks the news:
Barack Obama, the US president, has admitted that Washington's power to influence stalled negotations between Israel and the Palestinians in limited.
Speaking to reporters after hosting a nuclear security summit on Tuesday, Obama said he had little hope for swift progress towards Middle East peace, more than a year after taking office and declaring it a high priority for his administration.
US-led peace efforts have been stymied by a dispute over Jewish settlement construction on occupied Palestinian land that has strained ties between Washington and its close ally Israel. Internal rifts among the Palestinians have also posed challenges to the process. "The truth is in some of these conflicts the United States can't impose solutions unless the participants in these conflicts are willing to break out of old patterns of antagonism," Obama told a news conference on Tuesday.
Really? The president of the USA, the greatest Superpower in the world, is so impotent before this tiny country called Israel, that he is unable to influence a peace process, stop an illegal occupation and the colonization of another people's lands, in spite of the billions American taxpayers have contributed over the years.
Netanyahu eats Obama for breakfast is the only conclusion.
