Sorry, but I also meant to comment on Dr. Pipes' comment that Bibi's speech... "...fails on the critical point of prematurely accepting a Palestinian state."

That is no small failure, either, because now said, it will be all the harder to retract later. There is no reason to have an Arab terror state carved out of the heart of Israel's Biblical Heartland, and giving it an air of legitimacy is a major mistake.
