I hope Obama is not going to follow the example of German chancellor Angela Merkel. Several Knesset members actually walked out during her 2008 speech because she was speaking in German, rejected as the 'language of the Nazis'. Well, it's also the language of Kafka or Herzl, whose portrait is prominently displayed in the Knesset. That's the kind of idiocy with which Israel's friends have to put up with: We take your money, weapons and diplomatic support, but we'll continue to insult you, and we never trust, and never forgive. I want to hear what Merkel said in the Knesset, with minor changes, and preferably in German, English, Hebrew and Arabic: "The al-Nakba fills us Israelis and our supporters with shame. We bow before the victims. We bow before the survivors."
