I fail to see how they arrive at the conclusion that his policy "contradicts" those of the past. Not at all. The only real difference is that he's not quite as willing, at least not yet, to make concessions to Israel's motives with under the table winks and silent nods, as previous administrations have done in order to avoid any political backlash. Furthermore, and in consideration of the above, that this misguided assertion comes from an Israeli government that had no qualms about vehemently announcing its intention to completely scuttle the commitments made by those preceding it, renders it pompous and moot! Shall we talk about losing credibility? Israel is rapidly losing any that she may have once had.
