Pat Lang on Israel; My Sentiments Exactly

I agree with Pat Lang of Sic Semper Tyrannis on the latest US/Israel flap, or the slap heard round the world.

Why is George Mitchell humiliating himself, and, by extension, the Obama administration, by continually trying to appeal to hard right Netanyahu and his cohorts to halt settlement advances? It's a kind of behavior much like Obama's continual bipartisan magical thinking. Ain't gonna happen.

As my father used to say, when people offended him, "Haul off and leave 'em alone". It's time to put Netanyahu in short pants. That's also magical thinking, at least until J Street becomes as powerful as AIPAC.
