Real News Video with Pepe Escobar: Bibi plays Barack

Pepe Escobar: Israeli PM tries everything to subvert Obama's priorities

"Defying enormous expectations, the White House meeting between President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was a big let down. Obama wants a Palestinian state, a precondition to solve the decades-long Arab-Israeli conflict. Netanyahu just mentioned an "arrangement". Obama wants to talk to the leadership of Iran. Netanyahu tried all the time to change the subject from Palestine to - non-existent - Iranian nuclear weapons. Pepe Escobar warns about the danger of the powerful Israel lobby in Washington hijacking the terms of the debate and helping Netanyahu to derail Obama's strategy."
