No, Netanyahu "didn't seek to emabrrass" joe Biden, nor did Lieberman "seek to embarrass" the Turkish ambassador to Israel when he subjected him to a televised excoriation, nor did Israel "seek to embarrass" Richard Falk, the UN rapporteur for Gaza when it arrested him last year on his arrival on UN business, then deported him. Of course, Israel has sought to embarrass. The pattern is too calculated and obvious. We saw it, too, in Netanyahu's arrogant rejection of Obama's call for a settlement freeze. Part of the problem is that we have had in the US a succession of nine administrations, from Johnson to Obama, who have temporized, groveled, and generally humiliated themselves in dealing with Israel. So why shouldn't Netanyahu "seek to embarrass" Biden? What Obama needs is an infusion of the spirit that Dwight Eisenhower showed in 1956 when he forced Britain, France, and Israel to cease and disgorge the fruits of their Suez adventure. The American people will support him.
