Bibi May Be King, but of a U.S. Client State

Bibi is not made of the same stuff as Begin, either in peace or in war. It's no coincidence he needs Defense Minister Ehud Barak by his side in the role of Aaron alongside Moses.

In the group photo of 60 bluebloods who celebrated the 60th anniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, King Bibi was prominent in his absence. With all due respect to Time magazine, which crowned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "King Bibi" in a flattering cover shot - followed by six pages about Netanyahu's enigmatic political greatness - that still doesn't make him a king.
