"Other Israeli leaders also used unusually harsh language to condemn Washington’s willingness to work with the government Mr. Abbas swore in on Monday. “American naïveté has broken all records,” said Gilad Erdan, a minister from Mr. Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud Party. The leader of the nationalist Jewish Home faction, Naftali Bennett, said the American decision “sends a message that terrorism pays.” Even Nachman Shai, a lawmaker with the left-leaning Labor Party, called the step “a slap in the face from the Americans.”
And Ron Dermer, Israel’s ambassador to the United States, rebuked both the new Palestinian government and his host country’s embrace of it, posting on Facebook that “with suits in the front office and terrorists in the back office, it should not be business as usual.”" NY Times
Yup, "business as usual," that is the order of the day from the Obama Administration.
“A slap in the face from the Americans,” Yup, that's what it was.
(Irony alert for all you engineers out there) IMO the time has come for the Israelis to cut the Americans loose. They should give the goyim and self-hating Jews as well, a hearty YOYO (you're on your own) and tell them that henceforth "you gringos will be responsible for your own security as a nation, if you can call it that. And furthermore, there will be no more grants from Israel's treasury and business for the purpose of 'shoring up' the American economy."
So there! pl
