Israel's Foreign Ministry ordered to 'reassess' EU involvement with Palestinians after decision to label West Bank goods; 'decision is almost completely devoid of any real significance,' official says.23:15 29.11.15 | 10 comments
During the previous US administration, Hamas (the terrorist group) was elected to lead the Palestinians; hardliner/whacknut Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was elected "president" of Iran and is now ramping up a nuclear threat; and Israel was HUMILIATED in a war with Hezbollah. It was a trifecta of failure. WHAT HAPPENED? You had in the US White House a true kindred spirit--a simple-minded but devoted Christian Zionist who -- with a narrow-minded and bellicose foreign policy -- UTTERLY FAILED to improve Israel's security. Now you have to deal with a thinker, who despite his inexperience, learns quickly, and tries to build bridges. That requires him to consider the interests of Israel's most ardent foes (i.e., the people with whom you might want to make peace). And for this, you vilify him, taking your cues from the know-nothing American Right. It's a grave error in judgment. Just ask yourself, how'd that last guy in the White House-- the one you loved so much -- work out for you?????
