"I wear my sunglasses ..."

During his visit, Biden failed to meet with Netanyahu's coalition partner, the fashion forward orthodox rabbi, Ovadiah Yosef.

Few have more than personal problems with orthodoxy, jewish or otherwise; but it is not a good mix with politics, let alone international politics.

a little background, including why Netanyahu will not "cave" this time.

Quietly or otherwise, the issue has to be forced on him and others, not diffused. Otherwise, the ability (his ability?) to manipulate the status-quo will be confirmed, the appropriate adjustments not made, and the prospect for meaningful peace talks scuttled or undermined in sly ways.
