Israel / USA heading for a clash

Ephraim Sneh sends his article suggesting that Israel and the USA may be heading for a clash. Which is something we have been predicting - virtually unavoidable given a right wing government in Israel and a left wing government in the States and a tough-as-nails US Secretary of State:

Glimmers of concern have recently crept into conversations with various American officials about a possible clash between the Obama administration and the Netanyahu government. On the one hand, the U.S. president has reiterated his intention to implement an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement based on the existence of two independent states. On the other hand, official voices in the Israeli government are heralding an attempt to evade, thwart or at least delay such a move.
