Arabs losing hope in Obama's ability to broker Mideast peace

A CSM report that touches upon the issues I raised yesterday. It's distressing enough to read about the racism-tinged comments that some Israelis are making about Mr. Obama. But to also read that a feeling's abroad that Mr. Netanyahu is eating Obama's lunch on the settlement-freeze issue . . . . There was (and still is) so much hope attached to Obama's presidency, but if an impression grows to the effect that Netanyahu can out-tough the President of the US, it could undercut Obama's agenda in re issues well beyond the Israeli-Palestinian problems.

I'm not sure if Obama can afford to play the patient-and-steadfast card much longer. He need a big-gain play, seems to me.
