It's a Done Deal, Says Debka

12 Adar Alef 5774

"...A high-ranking US official told DEBKAfile: “We all know that the die is cast in Jerusalem and that Netanyahu has accepted Kerry’s guidelines. They are now working on the reservations he needs to submit for his government coalition to survive the expected storm of protest and resistance and for the talks with the Palestinians to carry on."

Is this why Netanyahu is being rewarded with a face to face meet with Obama in Washington on Rosh Chodesh Adar Bet?

According to the same report:

"...In the exchanges leading up to the Obama-Netanyahu meeting, the prime minister’s office and Israel embassy have asked the White House and State Department to delay publication of the Kerry document to mid-April during the Knesset’s Passover recess. This will help Netanyahu to stay clear of the rowdy debates and heated special sessions he expects to erupt over his acceptance of the paper."

If they think the furor will die down over Pesach, they have vastly underestimated the Jewish people. But, then, they're not the first to do so.
