«President Obama is fed up with both Israel and the Arab Palestinians».
This is a statement made by White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. He recently told the Israeli consul in Los Angeles that the Obama administration is fed up with both Israel and the Palestinians, Army Radio reported on Wednesday.
Emanuel added that if there is no progress in the peace process, the Obama administration will reduce its involvement in the conflict, because, as he reportedly said, the U.S. has other matters to deal with.
Emanuel met with Jacob Dayan, consul general of Israel in Los Angeles, about two weeks ago, after which Dayan briefed the Foreign Ministry.
Emanuel told Dayan the U.S. is sick of the Israelis, who adopt suitable ideas months too late, when they are no longer effective, according to Army Radio.
The U.S. is also sick of the Palestinians who never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity, Emanuel reportedly said.

Finally some good news from Washington. The Israeli Government will most likely express sadness if Obama throws in the towel in the «peace making process». But behind the curtain the leadership will salute in Champagne.
Because it is not only Obama who have «better things to do». The state of Israel must continue to develop Judea and Samaria as an fully integrated Jewish homeland. There are still millions of Jews that not yet have returned home to Eretz Zion.
Israel must also stand on the demand for a pan-Arabic acceptance and recognition of the Jewish state of Israel. Without such an public readable document to be signed, there can never be true peace in the region.
