Barack Obama will have seven weeks and three days left in office between November 8 and January 20, 2017. What will he do with that time?

Barak Ravid suggests in Ha'aretz, that Netanyahu fears that President Obama has one final speech he will give to the United Nations.

"It is the speech in which Obama will try to leave a lasting legacy on the Israeli-Palestinian issue by laying down principles for resolving all the core issues: borders, refugees, security and, above all, Jerusalem.

"Netanyahu's fear is that once such a speech is given, the road to turning it into a UN Security Council resolution will be short.

"That is why the pro-Israel lobby AIPAC has worked hard over the past few weeks, apparently at the urging of Israeli ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer, to recruit senators from both parties to sign a letter to Obama on this issue.

"Of the 100 senators, 88 ultimately signed the letter, which was sent to Obama on Monday. To achieve this impressive number of signatories, it was necessary to make the letter's wording sufficiently vague."

No letter will deter this outgoing President who has demanded that Bibi Netanyahu accept U.S. conditions to continue to receive essentially the same annual gift the tax-payers have been sending him.

In a final UN speech Obama will find a receptive audience of nations eager to end a senseless occupation that has stirred so much anger, suffering and hatred in the Middle East.

Knowing this, Barack Obama is acting like a President who "will not go gentle into this dark night."
