if war breaks out, and it will be Binyamin Netanyahu. He's done everything in his power to offend everyone possible diplomatically, his actions toward the Palestinians are rapacious, he's undermined every effort at peace despite his predecessor coming close to negotiating a peace deal with Syria by giving back the Golan Heights in a demilitarized form. He's formed an alliance with Yisrael Beitenu and pandered to aggressively militant settlers, he's allowed anti-Obama incitement to run rampant in Israel and contemptuously thumbed his nose at requests that he not further aggravate the situation with more building in E. Jerusalem. He is responsible. Israel is responsible. Nobody else. And it isn't the U.S. President's responsibility to clean up the mess Netanyahu's made before, during, or after a war with its neighbors.
