When you let the inmates run the asylum guess what happens? People think you are nuts. There are plenty of sane and decent Israelis, but all the world sees is the lunatics running the nation and the results of their actions. America should disengage from Israel completely for a while. Then IF sane Israelis take control of their nation from the likes of Netanyahu and Lieberman, the US will have the credibility to take dramatic actions to welcome Israel back from it's self-imposed status as a pariah nation. When does a friend have to take action to show a friend that they are drunk upon snake-oil and in danger of harming themselves? America should cut off Israel now, in hope that Israel will overcome the mental illness that has overwhelmed it's body politic. Then, when Israel has taken the ten-steps necessary to once again become a decent nation, America should welcome and embrace it.
