Netanyahu Thinks We're Stupid
As this post at TPM so trenchantly observes, Netanyahu completely ignored Obama's demand that the Israelis halt all illegal settlement activity. Additionally, his vision of a demilitarized Palestinian state is laughable and insulting. This speech does not represent any kind of substantive shift, and should not be treated as such. It is a carefully calibrated, political act that represents no commitment to change.
