Only Israël is allowed to snub a US Vice-President, a Turkish ambassador, etc. Only Israël has the courtesy of choosing for Foreign Minister somebody no respectable country wants to talk with which is a display of deep respect for partners. Only Israël PM announces prior to a visit to the US president before a lobbying audience of double loyalty US citizens that he is refusing what is the subject of the sollicited meeting. Only Israël PM brags publicly that he knows best America and that it has a single term President. David Axelrod is kind enough to try to minimize the event. It perspires underneath many comments a delicate flower of racism : it needs to have the first non white president to tell the truth to a PM who has the grace not to refuse a few billion dollars a year.
