Obama and the Settlements
It is my belief that the Obama team has thrown in the towel on stopping Iran from getting nuclear weapons.
The Obama team can then hope for the Israelis to be disgusted enough with the poor state of Israel's relations with the US and Iran's new nuclear reality that they throw Netanyahu out of office.
Then a more compliant Israeli prime minister can take over, and give away the West Bank to the PA for nothing.
Obama will never use military force for this, and the Administration's new engagement approach seems to have been developed as if we had all the time in the world to reach an agreement with Iran.
What is particularly disgusting is that two court Jews in the administration -- Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod -- appear to be the primary forces encouraging Obama to stick it to Israel . They have calculated that American Jews are so blindly liberal, and in rapture to the almighty Obama that Obama can push Israel around without doing damage to his standing in the Jewish community.
"Where is that great champion of Israel Nancy Pelosi ?"
Where are the major Jewish organizations to push back?
Where are the Jewish Democrats in the Senate and House challenging a President of their own party when he sells out Israel? I guess that would require a spine.snip
Regrettably for Israel, none of this is a laughing matter.
