    That the American people were the intended audience for Netanayur's cartoon is probably right but the mainstream American media do not give any space to Abbas or the Palestinian viewpoint anyway. Netanyahu has exposed himself (and Israel) to ridicule for exactly what? You gotta be joking if you think it was to drown out the words of Abbas to the American people - his words would not have been heard anyway. The impression of the cartoon ( and all of the delicious satire it has generated) will last. I just think this is incredibly stupid as it also locks Israel in as a major instigator of any military action by the USA against Iran in popular American opinion. If any future American strike against Iran goes horribly wrong, it is also settling up Israel as a scapegoat in American popular opinion. And yet, if the US strikes, it will be because it thinks that it is in the real interests of the US. I wonder if Netanyahu and the geniuses in his government has ever weighted up the long term damage his push for military action aganist Iran may do on the relationship between Israel and popular American opinion? Is Netanyahu and his ilk really the best that Israel can produce?
