Recent commentary about E. Jerusalem speculates that the U.S. scolding of Isreal is a way for Joe Biden to save face at Netanyahu's expense. Let me paint a picture for your "Understanding." Joe Biden is viewed by his enemies AND friends as a lovable drunk uncle, who shows up at family reunions for everyone's dismay AND amusement. As he opens his mouth, everyone gasps with the expectation that he will drop the "F bomb" or say something so stupid that it sounds profound! On the other hand, we have a resolute statesman working to develop and protect the sovereign nation of Israel. If you are from the U.S., Israel...ANYWHERE, ask yourself this question, "Who's reputation is worth saving, and which one is even salvagable?!!"
