    PR men are more concerned about how things appear to be than about their real content. Netanyahu is Israel's PR Man in Chief. His graduate degree is in marketing, and such a person will say almost anything in order to make the sale, regardless of how good the product is. And this is what happened with Netanyahu. To get elected as Likud Leader, Netanyahu was AGAINST an independent Palestinian state. But 4 months after the elections, a decent interval, he could change his mind in order to please Obama who was then a feared, unknown "pro-Muslim" president. Much water flowed in the Potomac since then, and Netanyahu lost that fear, but kept fearing his extremist coalition partners. So nothing moved towards peace and Israel is moving into the path of the UN Hurricane. With Turkey the situation was not different. Rationally, Netanyahu was on the verge of apologizing for the death of 9 Turkish citizens, but gave in to a wave of "no apology" that swept the Israeli masses. This leader is being led to our diplomatic slaughter. Israelis should wise up and get rid of this PR man or, as Cromwell said: "Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!"

Pollard’s release feels like a consolation prize

The fact that the convicted spy's release is happening at such a low moment in U.S.-Israel ties casts a pall over the news.
