Israeli fears & 'Prime Minister' Obama's "surprise" demand....

Haaretz, here
"...A political source in Jerusalem said that Netanyahu's associates have been recently discussing a scenario in which Obama makes unequivocal demands on issues like West Bank settlement construction, illegal outposts and negotiations with the Palestinians. 
The aides also fear a public clash between the two premiers, such as during a news conference or in comments the pair make, in which their differences will be aired. ...... The source's comments came after officials in Jerusalem were themselves surprised by a report in the L.A. Times Monday that the Obama administration has asked Congress to amend U.S. law to enable the Palestinian Authority to receive federal aid even if Hamas joins a unity coalition. .."
