      All you have to do is actually read/listen to what he said, not once, but twice, in the past 6 days.

      Give it a try - read/listen.  You'll benefit from the effort, I promise.

      •  evidently EU is tiring of Bibi (0+ / 0-)

        and his logjams; question is now if US will veto recognition of Palestinian state in Sept.  I reiterate that Obama does not understand intransigence of Likud or the ambiyions of Israeli RW

        I have read/listened and find no new ground; maybe you should point it out to me and a good bit of the nonWestern world

        •  No veto (0+ / 0-)
