Even before I read the post, it occurred to me that Obama isn't suddenly wanting to make nice with Netanyahu. When you add in the announcement of Obama's new Secretary of State, John (F)reaking Kerry that his prime objective in the Middle East is the Israeli/Palestinian issue, our relations with Israel aren't the main reason for Obama's visit.
I sincerely believe that Obama has been made to understand the calamity that is about to hit the greater Middle East as a result of the on-going civil war in Syria. If Assad prevails, it will be because of collusion with Iran and consequently, open season on Israel and the beginning of WWIII. Welcome to reality Mr. President.
