The article discusses the proposed unilateral peace plan by the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama. In the proposal, the U.S. suggests that Israel's refusal may affect their interests because establishing peace with Palestinians is the only way to diminish Iranian influence. It was recalled that two past Israeli governments agreed to the plan but some of the supporters lost their popularity, suggesting that Obama's plan needs a change in the governing coalition and the support of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
