Beinart is precisely on point as always. When I watched Bibi's speech on C-SPAN, I experienced the usual mix of emotions: pride at his (mostly) justifiable boasting and patriotism, but also unease at his unself-critical triumphalism. [e.g., when he declared Israel the only country in the region which has conquered the problem of water. It is instead accurate, I think, that the aquifers have been plundered, that pollution is rife, and that desalinization is no miracle cure]. There is much for AIPAC, and all of us, to celebrate, but also much to correct.
