Since the end of the cold war, 9/11 and the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq times have changed. Yet Israeli political leaders for the last nine years have thought that it was business as usual and that nothing has changed. Most of the difficulties NATO and the United States are having in Afghanistan and Iraq are caused by foreign fighters radicalised by the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. And there is a school of thought that solving this conflict will help solve the problems in Iraq and Afghanistan. Netanyahu and the Israeli people heard the news last week, and no amount of flow charts will hide the fact that general Patreaus is accusing American politicians of getting American soldiers killed because of their policies towards Israel. That goes national and AIPAC and by definition Israel, is fucked, but unfortunately Netanyahu is strutting around as if nothing has changed and Israel has been taken over by right wing nutjobs to the right of Genghis Khan.
