If Netanyahu was a statesman, rather than acting like a Court Jew in Washington, Obama wouldn't have to save Israel from itself by putting his foot down, would he? It's time for Israel to grow up and integrate as a nation in the ME, not some foreign outpost of 'World Jewry' on ancestral lands reclaimed thousands of years later. Instead, Netanyahu continues to rely on the transatlantic lifeline to guarantee Israel's 'unfair advantage' in the neighborhood, and continue on the path of territorial expansion and ethnic cleansing. So Obama should stop this, at the cost of losing reelection (among other problems)? Blaming the US or anyone else for Israel heading for the abyss is like smokers suing tobacco companies after they develop lung cancer. The warning labels have been on the packages for a long time, right?
