Hillary: Confrontation with Israel "Paying Off"

I don't like where this is headed.

In an interview with the BBC, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said its recent row with Israel was "paying off" because she believes this will lead to a resumption of negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority:

I think what the prime minister (Netanyahu) has said repeatedly is that his government and he personally are committed to pursuing these negotiations and he just has to make sure that he brings in everyone else. That's his responsibility and it's not something that the United States can or is interested in doing.

What utter drivel!!!

Netanyahu has to bring in everyone else? Translation: Israel bears all of the pressure while the Palestinians have the Obama Administration in their corner.

Yet who was it that refused to return to the negotiating table even after Israel announced the 10 month settlement freeze? Why the Palestinian Authority, of course. Yet I don't recall any angry phone calls from Hillary Clinton to Mahmoud Abbas.
