I am, however, more inclined to view this as being fomented by Israel. It has been Israel's behaviour that has brought this about and it started from Cast Lead and has gradually built during the failed peace process where Netanyahu's pedantics and baiting and insulting of the USA wore everyone down. The Lieberman constantly voicing ridiculously aggressive threats and statements did nothing to help. Let us also not forget the broken agreements that Israel was meant to keep with not just the Palestinians but with Egypt. Part of the process of peace with Egypt was to implement Resolution 242 withdrawing from territory occupied in the Six Day War thus granting Palestinians autonomy and freedom from Occupation. The failed peace process and threats to block the Palestinians at the UN has done Israel and America no favors. Both Israel and America are now isolated in the Middle East due to Israel.
