The Obama administration may present a unilateral plan to “force a peace agreement on the Israelis and Palestinians,” former foreign minister Shlomo Ben-Ami told Army Radio on Sunday morning.

Ben-Ami’s words came as Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was preparing to travel later in the day to the AIPAC conference in Washington. Netanyahu will be joined by Defense Minister Ehud Barak, and will probably meet with US President Barack Obama.

Citing an American official, Ben-Ami said the US was planning to present its own plan for peace in the Middle East, and that such pressure could cause the Netanyahu coalition to crumble.

Last week, leading figures in the Obama administration, among them US Vice President Joe Biden and US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, leveled severe criticism at Israel for approving new Jewish construction in Jerusalem even as the peace process hovers on the brink of renewal and the Arab population of the capital continues to protest the municipality’s home demolitions.
