    Juan Cole seems to think so:

    "President Obama has few options in forcing Netanyahu back to the negotiating table. The US Congress controls the purse strings, and Obama cannot punish the obstreperous Likud government by cutting aid or military weaponry, without the cooperation of Congress.

    "Republican Eric Cantor has already pledged to run interference for Netanyahu in Congress, against Obama.

    "But there is one thing Obama has in his control.

    "He can instruct the US ambassador to the UN to abstain from United Nations Security Council resolutions on Israel.

    "Obama could simply let the UNSC be the body that forces Israel into accepting a two-state solution.

    "Israel is already in profound contravention of numerous UNSC resolutions, with regard to their refashioning of Jerusalem, treatment of Occupied Palestinians, the Gaza blockade, etc.

    "The UN Security Council should start giving Israel the Iran treatment, putting economic sanctions on it until it complies with international law and with UNSC resolutions."

    Obama Should...

    And to end the occupation SWIFTly there's the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Transactions:

    "SWIFT links 8,740 financial institutions in 209 countries.

    "Without access to SWIFT and its interbank payment network, countries are unable either to pay for imports or to receive payment for exports.

    "In short, no payment — no trade.

    "Should it come to a point where trade sanctions are imposed on Israel, it may be able to evade them.

    "Instead of chasing trade sanctions-busters and plugging loopholes, it is both faster and much more effective to suspend the payment system.

    "Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his far rightwing government have slapped President Obama in the face with mail gloves by refusing to extend the freeze on new colonies in the Palestinian West Bank.

    "Palestine Authority president Mahmoud Abbas reaffirmed his refusal to go forward with direct negotiations if Israelis were going to be seizing land that was being negotiated for while the talks were ongoing!"

    Obama Should (grow a pair in Palestine)
