    They may have discovered the secret elixir for turning American Jews into Republicans. The Netanyahu blunder was indeed clumsy, and the US is right to feel insulted. But it knew Israel was not changing its policy of building in Jerusalem. It has no problem with the PA going ahead with honoring a mass murderer of children right after Biden left. And with the US's escalating outrage, I can't help but thinking of the famous line from Macbeth: "Methinks the lady doth protesteth too loudly." Could it be the fix was in for sometime, and Obama was just waiting for the right moment to be "shocked, ... shocked" to do another quote from the movie "Casablanca?" Meanwhile, I'm betting the memorial in Israel promised to Russia to honor the Red Army's fight against Nazism will coincidentally be erected ahead of schedule.
