We need to know several things. Those who have EVER supported Israel need to know several things. 1. What is wrong with Israel that it has become totally self-destructive? 2. Why does Israel repeatedly - and according to this story - lie to the USA one day and then tell another which refutes the lie of the day before? 3. Why does Israel think it has every right to humiliate, lie about and undermine that nation which has been it's most consistent and persistent ally since the late 1960s? 4. Who in the Netanyahu government ACTUALLY approved of not only the humiliation of a few days ago, but the humiliation in this article? Either the action taken by the Interior Ministry of the Netanyahu Government was a 'mistake in timing', OR the excuse given in this article is true. IN EITHER CASE the intent was clear. The Netanyahu Government intended to humiliate the USA. Both cannot be true, and if either is true the other 'official' explanation is a lie.
