    Here's the latest score: Netanyahu 3. Obama 0. Bibi scored, in May, with the "reaffirmation documents" concerning US approval of Israel's illegal nuclear arsenal. Bibi bragged to the media about it. Then Bibi scored a second time, when he got Obama to back down on the demand for a settlement freeze; with world-class chutzpah, Bibi announced hundreds of new housing starts on Arab land. More recently, Bibi wanted to quash the Goldstone Report, a docile Obama complied; US pressure succeeded in getting the UN vote postponed - tabled for six months. Bibi scored again. Obama has scored nothing but scorn, contempt and now mockery - from the beneficiaries of his submissiveness. Obama should be angry, Bibi has played him for a fool. Question: If Obama should retaliate, by threatening to re-evaluate the "special relationship", would the Mossad or fifth-column, de facto Israeli agents in the US consider engaging in another targeted killing - justified as Israeli "self-defense"?

    from the article: Israeli mockery of Obama's Nobel is pure chutzpah
