To the Editor:
    Inevitably, writing from inside the political culture of Israel, one's view of the world is focused by that lens. But it's not all about Bibi. President Obama has a job to do of which relations with Likud is a tiny part. He must e.g. enforce our treaty obligations. Those include the UN charter which in turn calls for self-determination of peoples. So regardless of Netanyahu's flip-flops, apologies and obfuscations, president Obama is on the job and looking to his historic legacy. That should include the establishment of states for the Palestinians and for the Kurds at least, just as president Truman's legacy includes the establishment of the state of Israel.
