...only Israel's strong, able and beloved Foreign Minister can fix this problem.... Lieberman can congratulate Turkey on that cool new Turkey-Armenia deal that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton helped save in the last minutes with cell-phone diplomacy from a black BMW... President Obama appears as s surgeon, drawing together rended tissue, a bit at a time, and stitching it whole again. Meanwhile, Israel is intent on alienating every friend it ever had, including completely trashing the so-called "special relationship" with the United States. Hasbara backfired. From Haaretz to the WSJ many many Americans are speaking out. They are being answered by screechingly ignorant and increasingly vile wingnuts who claim to be Israel's "supporters" but as I have written here for years, they are Israel's worst enemy, far worse than Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas. Real Israel "supporters" had better start shouting down the wingnuts before all is lost.
