The new American President apparently never was a friend of Israel. Micromanaging municipal building in East Jerusalem seems curious to the overwhelming majority of Israeli citizens while he fiddles before the burning issue of Iranian nuclear weaponization and sponsorship of an "axis of resistance". The issue is not settlers or the President but whether the President stands for a moderate policy in the Middle East or, by default, Ahmadinejad. That the American President chooses to pettily humiliate the Israeli Prime MInister is no disgrace for Bibi, despite all his imperfections This all will be remembered, as will be remembered the countless days of decision for Iran that have come and gone, when the current Administration offers Israel its word on security guarantees in exchange for Israel's voluntary suicide. Yes it would be nice to get along with gazillions of petro-dollar rich Arabs and pretend that Iran is no threat, but let's drop the theatrical moralism and high school snubs.
