It's interesting that there is clearly a linkage between U.S. demands with those of the PA. In both cases Israel is asked to give up more - more land, more prisoners, more defensive barriers. And in both cases it is never enough. The U.S. gives Egypt the same amount of money as Israel, yet one could not imaging Obama telling Egypt what to do, and acting insulted if they refused. The U.S. overreacted and should have said and done nothing. Israel has the right to build in its own country - that's a no-brainer. It would have been diplomatic to say nothing. But the Obama administration lacks anyone with international experience. This kind of childish reaction is amazing and proves some worst fears, that maybe the U.S. was just setting Israel up, and jumped on the first pretext to weaken its alliance. Foxman is 100% correct in his comments.
