Since America let loose the Iranian lion by removing Persia's arch enemy Sadam, US credibility is approaching nil. That the Palestinians, dependent on the entire world simply to survive daily, are confident enough first to spurn a request-suggestion-order from the American bankroller-diplomatic protector is certainly a sign of the times! Yes, in the past Bush was embarrassed by ME heads of state, had a shoe thrown at him on one occasion; and yes Secretary of Defense Gates was unceremoniously bidden to make an unscheduled stopover in Riyadh to explain US position on Iran after the failure to convince Israel during the Biden visit. But for a disputed head of an entity to say "no," and then to allow that "no hard feeling, we still allow you to fund and support us," has the US lost its dignity along with its position in the region?
