I spent about 20 minutes with Neal Conan on NPR’s “Talk of the Nation” today discussing Israel’s elections and why I’m ready for Netanyahu to lead Israel’s government — either because he’ll find his mature, Nixonian, do-a-deal, makeover side — or because he’ll be so flamboyantly destructive of Israel’s and America’s interests that he’ll finally get the kind of attention from the US public that will change the course of things in Israel Palestine negotiations.
Am I naive? Perhaps? But with my typical flood of email telling me that I’m nuts – I’ve had suprising support from leading Americans who think that there is something to what I’ve proposed.
Here is the clip which you can listen to at your leisure.
