As I’m sure you’ve gathered by now, Benjamin Netanyhu’s campaign rhetoric is being used by Obama as a pretext to throw Israel to the UN wolves. Obama has never been pro-Israel, as his radical, pro-Palestinian, not-so-distant past makes clear. He only projected a pro-Israel pose when he had big elections to win. Now that he has no more elections to go – he can go “full Bulworth” on Israel, using Netanyahu’s heated campaign rhetoric as his pretext to let his pro-Israel mask not only slip, but completely fall off his face and get trampled underfoot.
You would think that Bibi’s comments regarding the impossibility of a two state solution under his watch, (given the Palestinian ruling party’s collaboration with Hamas), and his Facebook comments about Arabs being bused to the polls, would pale in comparison to Ayatollah Khamenei’s condemnation of America over imposed sanctions. But you would be wrong. It turns out, the Supreme Leader’s “death to America” rhetoric is acceptable because they’re aimed at a domestic political audience.
Benjamin Netanyahu’s campaign rhetoric that was aimed at his domestic audience is not acceptable because Obama needs an excuse to throw Israel under the bus.
