Netanyahu, in an address seen as his response to Obama, he refused to heed the U.S. call for an immediate freeze of construction on lands Palestinians claim for their future state.
In any case, the catalyst for Netanyahu's announcement is obviously U.S. President, Obama. The picture, above, indicates how Obama will be constructed by majority groups who must now begrudgingly deal with an African American leader making serious efforts to address minority rights.
How further resistance to Obama by those wanting to maintain the status quo shakes out in public circles could be very disturbing.
