“Bibi” is your typical bully who “showed their ass” to the white house. If it sounds like third grade politics that’s what it is when you are dealing with stubborn reactionaries like Bibi. The current flap over new settlements in the occupied territories was suppose to be a stick in the eye to the White House which is demanding no new settlements. It was not a coincidence that Israel’s right wing government tried to set the tone of VP Biden’s latest visit to Israel to show they don’t wan the US to dictate the peace process. Frankly with Netanyahu I don’t think Israel wants to talk peace at all.
But Israel is not facing the lap dog anymore. Obama, Clinton and Biden are much stronger characters than the last administration when it comes to dealing with Israel. Granted I know nothing that substantive is going to change in our relationship with Israel, especially our funding but finally the tone is changing.
