Today, the Washington Post reported that “the Obama administration has abandoned its effort to persuade Israel to renew a construction freeze.” Actually, the administration had persuaded Israel to renew the freeze for three months. It did so by offering certain incentives to Israel.
The sticking point was not the freeze, it was Israel’s insistence that team Obama state the promised incentives to extend it in writing. As the Post acknowledges, “the United States ultimately decided not to comply with an Israeli request to put its offer in writing.”
Why? There can only be one answer, and we all know what that highly embarrassing answer is.
