    At last America is standing up to Israeli extremism, even if the shift is barely perceptible. America and other western nations needs this kind of Israeli friendship like a hole in the head. Assassinations, sieges settlements , passport stealing, apartheid-like supression of the PAL's where does it end? And the "cost" of this support is extremism and radicalisation of the entire muslim world. Muslims & arabs are angry and they have EVERY RIGHT to be. Israel is trampling over them and giving the two fingers to the West. Wake up Israel and smell the coffee! Peace and respect for the PALS in the fullest sense is the only way out of the hole it has made for itself.
