Netanyahu falling into honey trap?

Prime Minister Netanyahu announced on Tuesday that he has decided to accept President Obama's invitation to attend a nuclear summit in Washington next week. I don't know about the rest of you, but I have a real fear that Netanyahu is falling into a honey trap set by Obama, and that the summit's topic is not what Netanyahu thinks it is going to be.
Amid concerns that the trip would increase pressure on Israel to open its nuclear facilities to international inspectors, the Prime Minister’s Office stressed that the summit would focus on preventing the spread of nuclear know-how to terrorist elements, and not on the nuclear capabilities of specific countries.
It's been two weeks since Obama left Netanyahu alone in the White House to go have dinner with his wife and children. Two weeks since Obama held a meeting with Bibi at which no photographers were present and Bibi had to arrive and leave like a bandit in the night. Three weeks since Obama had Hillary Clinton call Bibi and dress him down for 45 minutes because a clerk announced that 1,600 housing units received their third of seven required approvals while Joe Biden was in Israel.

Is Bibi a glutton for punishment? What does he think is going to be discussed there if not trying to gain commitments from all attendees to give up their nuclear arsenals? Does he really believe that if he says we don't have one, Obama will sit silently by? Or did Obama promise him that if he shows up, Obama won't give away all the details of what we do have?

What could go wrong? (Any day when I'm ending this many posts with that question is not a good one).

I think Bibi's putting on a poker face. Going to go along with this strictly for the show of being the subject of verbal abuse from many allies, but soon the bombs will start falling on Iran.

I would not have gone... quite frankly, I do fear the worst. The last thing Netanyahu should do is give cover for this Administration's anti-Israel policies. And the one thing I think we will see happen is no real action will be taken at that summit against Iran.

I'd like to be proven wrong.

don't know...

maybe it's a kind of strategy of bibi...
you know: "i'm weak, i'm doing what you said..." and when they think that they had israel in the palm of the hand...

bombs start raining over iran, gaza and lebanon.
that will a real shock for hussein.

i really want to believe that there is a good purpose for tolerating all those bullies.
