Prime Minister Netanyahu will make a big effort to convince President Obama that Abu Mazen does not seriously intend to resign. It is just a trick. He is not serious. There is no need to make any concessions in order to convince him to stay.
Because what will happen if, God forbid, this time it is for real? What will happen if Abu Mazen is really not willing any more to play the game? Not willing any more to get photographed in all kinds of nice conferences while settlements continue to be built all around him?
What will the Government of Israel do now? Whom shall we mock? Whom shall we call "a chick without feathers"? With whom can we negotiate till the end of days and never reach any conclusion?
No, don’t go, Abu Mazen! Don't do this to us!
