    Israelis expecting a more compliant American administration will emerge after the 2012 U.S. presidential election should google David Patreus. Patreus is the darling of the neocons. George H.W. Bush appointed him over many more senior officers to the ranks of lieutenant general and general and to command all U.S. operations in Iraq in 2007. Bush was so pleased with Patreus' support for the neocon agenda that a year later he again appointed Patreus over more senior generals to head CENTCOM. There is deepening anger spreading among Americans about Israel's arrogance and intransigence. The insult to Biden struck a nerve among Americans of all political persuaions. Don't take our support for granted.
