Israeli Prime Ministers Love Sport of Controlling US Presidents

-


A bit of a historical reminder above, and thanks to Andrew Sullivan for surfacing this.
Israeli political leaders too often want to brag that they control the US President — and that what they demand, they get.
In this case, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Ohlmert bragged on video that he shamed then Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and forced her via an uninformed President George W. Bush to abstain on her own UN Security Council resolution.
The trend continues with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu telling various close friends that he has the US Congress in his pocket and can largely ignore the White House. Netanyahu, according to sources, believe he can just bide his time.
Netanyahu wants to bring down President Obama, when it is Obama who should be destabilizing the far right coalition of the Netanyahu government.

    If my “promised land” sat on property that I stole, I would be worried, like Nadine and her ilk, that the previous owners would come back to claim what was theirs. But instead she invokes anti-Semitism, as if her ilk is entitled to go around stealing land and emptying it of the people who live there.

    My commiserations, POA, it’s going to be hard to get a conviction in your favorite let’s-all-hate-the-Israelis case when the ricochet is on CCTV video. Emily Henochowicz was not shot intentionally, and that’s that.
    She just suffered the kind of accident that can happen when naive young Western kids take part in violent pro-Hamas demonstrations. Let’s hope more of them wise up in future and stay home.

    Nadine again: “The [Settlers] are explicitly telling pollsters that their goal is [NO PALESTINE, NO ARABS]… In other words, there is no peace because the Israelis want the land [Palestine would be] on! They are saying so quite openly.
    But [Nadine is] going, ‘Oh no, no, no. Jews…are oppressed…people. They must be pure virtuous victims… Obviously [the world] should give the Israelis whatever they demand until they’re happy — up to and including national suicide. Maybe with a side order of a [Palestinian] Holocaust. That’s certainly what the Israelis have in mind. And [Nadine is] cheering them on.”
    As usual, Nadine is projecting the views of her ilk onto the Palestinian side

    Dan, there is NO treaty declaring what is Israel and what is “Palestine,” despite your delusions to the contrary. There was no treaty behind the 1967 border. The 1967 border was the 1949 truce line. When Israel was totally inside it, Jordan attacked and tried to destroy Israel. After Israel repulsed the attack and took the West Bank, then miraculously the worthless 1967 border became “recognized”.
    But it’s not. Israel has TWICE offered the Palestinians the West Bank: 95% + with land swaps to make 100%. You really think this conflict is about the odd half-acre here and there? Both times the offer of the whole West Bank was refused, because the Palestinians refuse to sign off on a settlement AND THEY ARE TELLING YOU WHY.
    But you have willed yourself into such stupidity that you can’t hear them even when they shout in your ear.
    So don’t tell me I’m changing the subject. I’m right on the subject.

    Nadine, you always change the subject when this issue comes up. If the ragamuffin Palestinians are a threat to Israel, then why don’t the Israelis just stay in Israel, build a fence or wall, and worry about defending themselves against Palestinians? I’m sure they can do that quite capably. Why are they in the West Bank gobbling up Palestinian land?
    Just get out and go home. Do that, and maybe then I’ll start listening to your sobbing about how those mean old Palestinians hate Jews.

    Kervick, you are the walking triumph of ideology over reality. The Palestinians are explicitly telling pollsters that their goal is NO ISRAEL, NO JEWS. Read the damn poll! In other words, there is no peace because the Palestinians want the land Israel is on! They are saying so quite openly.
    But you’re going, ‘Oh no, no, no. The Palestinians are oppressed brown Third World people. They must be pure virtuous victims. Look, the Israelis are white! they’re Western! they’re rich! What more proof could you need!’ Obviously they Israelis should give the Palestinians whatever they demand until they’re happy — up to and including national suicide. Maybe with a side order of a second Holocaust. That’s certainly what the Palestinians have in mind. And you are cheering them on.

    The GOP have the Christian extremists that believe only unquestionly obeying Israel will bring God’s blessings and the Democrats have the more liberal Jewish voting block and politicians. Palestinians and Arabs have almost no voice in the media.
    I have to wonder what the long term affect of the GOP undermining Obama’s Foreign policy positions will have, with Cantor declaring open mutiny and the Senate refusing to budge on the START treaty, the Democrats battling Afghanistan and a tougher stance on Iran.

    Suggestions as to how to do this? Might not the other post in this blog about the incoming chairperson of the House Foreign Affairs Committee imply that this will be mighty hard.
    What would be nice, here, with your foreign policy savvy and connection to all the goings on in DC, is to suggest a strategy in which those Americans who seem to put the views or efforts or actions of some of Israel’s leadership ahead of the efforts of our own Administration pay a dear price for this. Doesn’t the president supposedly represent all our interests? If so, how can those who criticize him publicly for pressuring foreign leaders get away with it and insist that they are the great patriots?

    Anyone ever seen this wretched anti-american bigot criticise one single Israeli action? She revels in the Israeli humiliation of a United States President. What kind of American citizen does that? Is our country better off with the likes of Nadine in our ranks? Thank God she’s a minority amongst American Jews. She oughta move to Israel, where her kind of bigoted prejudices and bloodsucking hatreds are nurtured by the majority.
    Truth is, if anyone on this blog ever exhibited the same kind of prejudicial hatred of Jews that Nadine routinely exhibits towards the Muslims, they would have been banned from posting here a long time ago.
    Can you imagine any of us insinuating that the Israelis DESERVE to be incinerated in white phosphorous??? Yet how many times have we seen Nadine defending Israel’s crimes and atrocities by blaming the Palestinians?

    I really really like to brag about this stuff. Really!

    Doesn’t mean I cause things.
    Doesn’t mean I make people do things that are contrary to their perceived good.
    Boastful rhetoric is standard operating procedure for the political realm, for family gatherings, and for the development and flourishing of “self-esteem. It also helps with signaling, positioning, warding off threats in a talisman-like fashion, and it must, must, be separated from actual analysis of events.
    Because this separation must be made, but isn’t particularly sexy or headline-inducing, or Drudge-siren-y, we should all read Jonathan Bernstein and The Monkey Cage and rortybomb and other quietly analytic sites.
    They don’t do bombast; they do fact-checking, chart-making, history-invoking, dry of the scholarly kind.

    “However, it is time to move negotiations out of the weeds and re-engage various stakeholders on all sides of the equation”
    This is what think-tankers say when they want to sound weighty but actually just need to fill empty space. Does this say anything? Not really. Does this offer any actionable suggestions? No.
    The reason the Israelis and the Palestinians can’t agree on a two state solution is dirt simple: the Palestinians don’t want a two-state solution, except as a stepping stone to a one-state, no-Israel solution.
    This was confirmed by a recent poll: “Almost two-thirds of Palestinians (59 percent in the West Bank and 63 percent in Gaza?) support the two-state solution ?(Israel and Palestine?) but eventually hope that one state ? Palestine ? will prevail, according to a survey by pollster Stanley Greenberg for The Israel Project. ”
    http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/poll-most-palestinians-see-two-state-solution-as-precursor-to-single-state-1.325793
    Not surprisingly, this no-Israel end goal gets in the way of the necessary compromises that would be acceptable to the Pals if they really wanted a two-state solution. Such as: agreeing that the settlement ends the conflict, or giving up the “right of return” of millions of Palestinians to Israel. While Palestine must be Jew-free, naturally.
    The Palestinian position is that they’ll take a two-state solution, but only if it’s a pure gift. They won’t agree to any treaties or conditions themselves. That way the temporary two-state solution won’t impede their intention of getting the final one-state, no-Israel solution.
    Realistically, the only thing that could push the Pals off this position is some kind of pressure, which they obviously don’t feel now as the secure recipients of billions of dollars of international aid, with universal enabling of their irresponsible victim status. Poor helpless babies, have another $150 million, says Obama.
    It’s ironic. If Obama is really so desperate to get the Palestinians back to negotiating table, the solution is simple: tell the Israelis that they may build in all the settlements they please, until the Palestinians actually sit down to negotiate. Only then should there be a freeze. Incentive 101.
    Obama is too driven by ideology to take in the simplest facts. From his reaction, he hasn’t learned a damn thing from the fiasco of his Middle East policy so far.

    . . .However, it is time to move negotiations out of the weeds and re-engage various stakeholders on all sides of the equation – including the U.S., Europe, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Iran, Syria, and the United Nations.
    Israel and Palestine together don’t work. They can’t come to a responsible deal on their own.
    Likewise, Mahmoud Abbas is essentially irrelevant at this point
    In fact, the more irresponsible both sides are about their situation, the more achievable a “new equilibrium arrangement” may be — because the US and other regional stakeholders simply can’t afford for the recklessness, immaturity, and sheer stupidity of leadership on all sides of the conflict to continue.
    Given that. Give us Netanyahu. Please.
    His re-ascension will help Americans realize that the false choice approach the Bush administration has been taking in Israel-Palestine affairs was flawed — and that Obama’s team must change the game or face a serious rebuke from Middle East watchers in the US and around the world.

    Obama tried following your “realist” advice on the Mideast, Steve – lots of “engagement”, lots of “changing the tone” to the Muslim world, lots of pressing Israel on those issues where the entire Israeli population is united in opposition (NOT just the right wing as you fondly imagine), lots of bowing to Arab leaders – literally.
    Golly, how did this work? What’s happening to American influence in the Mideast? Israel? Iran? Turkey? The Arab world? Happy with the results of your advice? Maybe you like America weaker. Most of your readers seem to.
    Just because Obama is an arrogant ignoramus following bad advice, does not make Bibi Netanyahu a political superman, lol. Obama waltzes into office promising to SOLVE Mideast peace in a single year, then by his own actions creates insurmountable obstacles to negotiations! Smart diplomacy, hoo-ha!

    As much as I despise Rice for her perjurious testimonies and criminal marketing of the Bush/Cheney agenda, I find it hard to find any duplicity in her interaction with the Israelis that would lead me to believe she acted in any manner disloyal to her President.
    One cannot make the same assumption about our current Secretary of State; the snake, Hillary Clinton.
