commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Netanyahu finds himself in a jam at home also……

It seems that Binyamin Netanyahu has problems at home due from his troubles at the White House…..

While the right leaning partners in his collation government are happy to push for the start the settlements in part of Jeruslem…..a lot of others in Israeli’s aren’t…they are more uneasy with the ‘family fight’ going on between the American administration and Netanyhu’s….than people think……

The United States was happy to deal with Tzipi Livni as Israel’s Foreign Minister in the past Israeli governmenet…..the US never thought things where going to be good with Bibi Netanyahu’s ‘second coming……

And they haven’t been…..

BiBi is now going to have to figure out how to get out of the hole he’s in…..

Livni must be smiling…thinking the Israeli voters  made the wrong choice in the last election……

Over the past year, Netanyahu “pushed the envelope with Obama,” said Yossi Beilin, a former Israeli peace negotiator, referring to haggling over a full settlement freeze that had precluded a resumption of peace talks. Now that Obama has pushed back, Netanyahu “is worried and afraid,” Beilin said.

Some observers speculated that Netanyahu might be forced to consider bringing Kadima, the centrist party led by former foreign minister Tzipi Livni, his arch political rival, into his coalition to alleviate the tensions with the United States. But Gideon Ezra, a Kadima member, said that might not be possible because of resistance from within Netanyahu’s Likud bloc: Incorporating Kadima would mean concessions such as halting construction in East Jerusalem and dismantling unauthorized settlement outposts in the West Bank, steps that Likud members oppose, Ezra said.

  1. From the visit on tuesday;

    “After failing to extract a written promise of concessions on settlements, Mr Obama walked out of his meeting with Mr Netanyahu but invited him to stay at the White House, consult with advisers and “let me know if there is anything new”, a US congressman, who spoke to the Prime Minister, said.

    “It was awful,” the congressman said. One Israeli newspaper called the meeting “a hazing in stages”, poisoned by such mistrust that the Israeli delegation eventually left rather than risk being eavesdropped on a White House telephone line. Another said that the Prime Minister had received “the treatment reserved for the President of Equatorial Guinea”.”


    Looks like a serious family fight.. And wonder how Tzipi plays her cards this time, she’s been a bit rigid in the past.

  3. Health bill, student loan funding, START treaty, and now walking out of meetings with Bibi. All in one week. It’s almost scary.

  4. Or as the lede of his weekly address states:

    “The President looks back on a week that saw the passage of two major sets of reforms: one putting Americans in control of their own health care, and one ensuring student loans work for students and families, not as subsidies for bankers and middlemen.”
