What on earth is Benyamin Netanyahu playing at?
First he doesn’t want peace talks with Syria, then Shimon Peres does, and now Netanyahu changes his mind – while his fascist Foreign Minister refuses to go along with him.
Israeli foreign policy is in chaos. They don’t know what they want. But today, it seems, they want “immediate” talks “without preconditions”.
The change of heart comes after a discussion with Barack Obama, who wants Netanyahu to embrace the idea of a two-state solution. The Israeli’s aide calls the idea “childish and stupid”. So are talks with Syria his way of diverting attention?
