Now we know that Netanyahu wants to remain Prime Minister and Ya’alon is not interested in the position.
What happens next?
Kerry will return to the Middle East again. Ya’alon, despite having showered five minutes before meeting with him, may smell a bit from sweat.
Kerry will bawl him out but finally will have learned a lesson that if he wants to throw Israel under the bus, the government will take the train.
Ya’alon actually did Kerry a favor. The messianic secretary – whoops – Kerry cannot continue his farce of saying that peace will come if both sides simply stop distrusting each other.
The Palestinian Authority and Israel trust each other far more than each of them trust the United States.
No Nobel for Kerry, at least not for a Palestinian Authority-Israeli piece of paper.
Maybe he can try his luck in Syria.
