Israel Hardline

The US-Israel back and forth is going to get sharper.
Advisers to Netanyahu and Israeli political analysts say the speech will be a response to President Obama's address to Muslims this month at Cairo University. Netanyahu, they say, wants to inject a Zionist "narrative" into a discussion that he believes was tilted in Obama's speech toward the Arab version of events.

Later: Netanyahu put a "poison pill" in his speech. Israel would recognize Palestine only if the Palestinians had no military and many other pre-rejected conditions.
