Shas and Bibi now believe Obama is so weakened after the mid-terms that Israel can do pretty much what it likes and Obama will have to grin and put up with it. They think that if they give him a good kicking now, he won't try to 'mess with' Israel even is power base recovers a bit. Sadly, I suspect their evaluation of the situation is fairly accurate. I'd love to see Obama come back at them, but I don't think it's going to happen.
