I've Been Thinking:
The US now understands that the demand to stop settlements in Israel was a mistake. The State Department is saying that they now see that ending settlement activity became a cause in and of itself and not a tool to solve core issues.
For the Obama Administration, it was a major realization, a diplomatic wow moment. The Palestinians feel betrayed. Israel feels vindicated.
The United States committed one of the greatest analytical and practical errors of diplomacy.
They took the side of the Palestinians because it seemed that the Palestinians needed their help.
