Missing the point.
On America's offer to Israel - this foreign policy piece points out that America's latest offer to Israel - including a promise to veto in international forums any attempt by the Palestinians to unilaterlly create a state is actually a major shift in policy by America, against Israel's interests. Previously America veto'ed more or less automatically anti-Israel motions at the U.N. Security Council. For the first time America's veto has become linked to the peace process. A similar point is made by Ben Dror Yemini (In Hebrew). I am somewhat shocked that this has attracted so little notice.
