Associates close to Netanyahu and Ya'alon called draft review of Operation Protective Edge 'an unserious report that reeks of politicking.'12:47 06.05.16 | 0 comments
Daniel is a delicious writer -- but calling for disentanglement of Israel from the neo-conservative agenda is just a bit disingenuous. It took years of concerted effort to make Israel the No. 1 foreign policy concern of the neocons, and Israeli politicos certainly egged them on. Israel has been the chief benefactor of the neocon ascendency -- at least in the short term. It will take a lot more than just listening and talking to important actors in the region -- if that is aimed only at selling Israel's present point of view.
