ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the scheduled visit of U.S. President Barack Obama to Israel and Palestine on the third week of March 2013. He says that this will not be for any kind of peace deal since Obama is in no position to induce confidence-building measures, especially with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas with little power to trade anything for progress from the Jewish state and Israel trying to paint Obama as a fickle friend. He says that Obama's visit will simply be for show.
