"No Israeli government would risk rockets on Tel Aviv, a civil war with the settlers and a political rupture in the Israel Defense Forces just to satisfy Obama." Israeli's reality is different from what you see from your comfy armchair. Mr. Netanyahu needs to do what he thinks is right for his country. America will respond in 2012, sad to say, we'll probably be absent until then, but this does not reflect the attitude of true Americans who have been and remain Israel's greatest friend. Its just that America is being taught a very painful lesson right now and we deserve every lick of what we're getting. Never again will we elect a radical ideologue into our White House. Please also note the changing attitudes of otherwise liberal American Jews - who are slowly but surely (and thankfully) losing their confidence in Democrats in general because Dems never have given a Sh&t about them, paying lip service to them only for their votes. Hang in there and never never give up.
