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
David, I enjoy your posts, learn from them and agree with you always. This time though, I wonder what else could Obama have done besides accepting the price. Let's say he would have said: "Listen guys, I don't deserve it yet". That would have caused shock, rifts and could have been interpreted as a rejection of peace, and inflamed those bellicose Muslim fanatics who would have crowed "I told you so! - I told you so!". It's certainly not Israel's Chutzpah to question the prize. It's certainly not Obama's fault he received it. It is the sole responsability of a prize that has lost almost all moral value. To share such an honor with Yasser Arafat just can't be moral. Do you agree? Best, Fortuna.
