There is something very liberating about this moment in time, like the feeling you have been in a dishonest relationship for years and can finally stop lying. Israel has shown us its true colors. We asked you to do something that is in the world´s interest and in our interest, and we think in your interest. After 50 years of immense generosity and unconditional support, Israel saw its chance -- to try to extort more money from us. At a time when your economy is booming and our people are losing their homes, you tried to shake us down for a few billion more. All so that you could play the string out for another three months, before resuming the creeping takeover of the land. It´s good to know who your friends are. It´s also good to know who can´t be trusted. Say goodbye to your last remaining friend on this planet Israel. And oh yeah, we´re taking the Marshall Islands and Micronesia with us.
