On Netanyahu: Advice for President Obama


Dear mr. President, are you hacked off when it comes to Netanyahus stubbornness?

So, after your re-election, you might act according to what former Israeli Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Shlomo Ben-Ami, described:

Israelis applaud their leaders when they confront the Arabs or snub the Europeans, never when they so irresponsibly defy Israel’s major, and at times only, ally the United States.

Bush (sen.) and Baker made it clear to the Israeli public that if they wanted the loan guarantees, they needed to change their Prime Minister.

And that was it with Arab-hater and Westbank-lover Yitzhak Shamir, who dared to play tricks on George H.W. Bush and his Secretary of State James Baker. Former Secretary of State James Baker, III, UN...

High time for a moderate to lead Israel. Don’t you think so, mr. President?

Israel - Zitat des Tages

 At times it seems as if what Jews do to other jews in this country [Israel] would be defined in any other country as nothing less than antisemtisim.

David Grossman
(Israelischer Autor. Man vergleiche das mit einer nicht untypischen Äußerung eines ultra-orthodoxen jüdischen Siedlers: "The Israeli secular entity has to be destroyed. God can't reveal himself until it's all wiped out. As long as the state of Israel stays as it is, there will be no redemption." Shmuel Ben Yishai, Settler, Hebron (Interview CBS Frontline April 2005). Was der Siedler hier verlangt ist nichts weniger als die Beseitigung des Staates Israel.)
