The final nail in the direct-negotiations coffin was driven by prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu when he coldly rejected president Obama's offer of an extra $3.5 billion in US aid in exchange for a 90-day settlement freeze.

will lie, cheat, and steal to continue their
dysfunctional and deadly relationship with the
KSA — a relationship that is rotting this nation
and its leaders from the inside out.
