Hva skjer i forholdet mellom USA og Israel? Denne analysen er til å få vett og forstand av. Den amerikanske regjeringen prøver å få brutt opp den nåværende regjeringskoalisjonen i Israel, et flertall som
have to rely on gangsters, messianists and medievalists for votes. Obama knows that a stable, centrist coalition is the key to success. He would rather, I understand, not have to deal with Netanyahu at all — people near the President say that, for one thing, Obama doesn’t think that Netanyahu is very bright, and there is no chemistry at all between the two men — but he’d rather have a Netanyahu who is being pressured from his left than a Netanyahu who is being pressured from the right.
Det kan være amerikanerne møter motbør fra palestinerne. Få har vel tjent palestinernes sak så godt som Netanyahu gjør nå.
