11.19.13 Who cares what Israel thinks?
If I see one more front-page story or editorial highlighting Israel’s opposition to a potential accord with Iran, I think I’ll puke. For decades the US has been funding immoral Israeli land grabs and undermining our own strategic interests in the process. Israel, through its minions in AIPAC interferes not only in US foreign policy, but also in our domestic politics. (Bibi Netanyahu was like an honorary member of the Romney campaign last year.) Now we have to read about what Bibi thinks and whether he approves of what we think? Any accord with Iran will be good or not so good based on its merits. Bibi isn’t relevant. Paying attention to him only makes him think he is.
