Remembrance of things past CARTOON

Just discovered this cartoon from the site of the Council of the National Interest Foundation. Just replace Bush in the cartoon with Obama, and everything falls into place. It pretty much sums up the causes of the recent impasse in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, Obama's backtracking from Cairo, and the administration's cave in on the settlements issue. Netanyahu won.
The peace process is for all practical purposes, dead. The occupation, colonialism, and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from their lands and property will continue as before under Netanyahu's leadership.
