'Anybody who has been involved in fostering the U.S.-Israeli relationship over the years, so important to both countries, knows that things are not as they have been for the past 50 years.' So... They were better in 1967, when Israel wrecked the Liberty? Perhaps in the 1970's, when Carter frog-marched her into returning the Sinai? Or is the reference to the eighties, when Reagan suspended aid until Israel toed the line? Really, Israel got her first big friend when Clinton became president, and then an even better one with Bush II. Obama's just trying to return the relationship to something like what it normally is. The US supports Israel but sets limits. Israel -- as the last decade demonstrates -- needs limits.
