Sorry for this short Diary but I would like to hear the thoughts of others.
The Obama administration has gone out of its way to insult and pick on Israel. There have never in the past been any problem with building homes in Jerusalem, and the shabby treatment of Netanyahu went beyond the contempt which Obama normally bestows on our allies.
I had to ask myself why they are doing this now, knowing that they have a reason for everything they do.
Here is my thought. They know that very soon Israel will have to strike against Iran, Iran continues to build a bomb and it is certain that Obama will do nothing about it.
Therefore Obama is laying the groundwork, by picking fights, to be able to disavow and disapprove of what Israel does in it’s on self defense.
