Interesting comments in a centrist Israeli newspaper.

  • In another centrist Hebrew daily, Maariv, Ben Kaspit said it was decision time for Mr Netanyahu:

    “What is clear is this, that the Americans are determined. They mean what they say. They will not allow Netanyahu to continue to wink in all directions. It is not only [East] Jerusalem, Bibi, it is all the territories. Not only Netanyahu has reached his moment of truth, the ‘T’ junction we have been avoiding for more than 40 years – the whole of Israel stands there. America is leaving us and is in fact becoming Europe. From now, we are all alone. The whole world talks about a Palestinian state in an area similar to 1967. Obama wants to know whether Netanyahu is there – in explicit words, in writing… A simple question demanding a simple answer.”
