This type of news coverage is not 'Israel' specific. This dialogue concerning fealty to Israel is being played out in the US press and is THE major impediment to Hagel's nomination. A growing number of Americans are becoming disenchanted with the 'Israel first and last' mentality, especially when your political leaders are crass, rude, boorish, unapologetic, insincere and unappreciative. Israelis need to wake up to how exactly AIPAC and the ADL represents Jews and Israel and determine if they are truly acting in Israel's best interest.
