Israel Dismisses US Demands But Then ....

They want some new fighter jets ! Are the Israeli leaders so screwed in the head they don't see the ridiculous nature of this request.? On one hand they are drawing a line in the sand on ILLEGAL settlements, which is not wise, and then they have the temerity to ask for more US tax-dollar gifts of fighter planes?

Netanyahu says Obama's demands are not reasonable. So let me get this straight. For 42 years Israel has been illegally occupying the West Bank. Who protects Israel from censure and sanctions at the UN? The US does. And what effect does this have on our ties with the Arab World? Obviously it hurts our other ties. But when a policy seems to be shifting, the Israelis become adamant.

It is clear to me what needs to happen, given the amount of aid we give Israel every year. A good analogy would be an out of control kid who never heeds his parents' demands, shows disrespect, tries to intimidate his parents, does what he wants, and then says "can i have some money to go drink beer with my buddies?"

What would a parent do to this kid. 30 years ago the parents would have kicked his little ass. Today the punishment should be to lock the little turd in his room until he learns to behave more respectfully.

If Israel does not want to follow the rule of law, then so be it. Aid ends, UN protection ends, and Israel has to deal with the consequences of its actions.

I hope this Obama admin is not bluffing on this issue. It is high time a US admin confronts the Israeli government over the policies that drag our image down with their amoral actions.

I will bow down and worship Obama if he continues to have any sort of legitimacy in our policy toward Israel and the Palestinians. Nobody in a sane world can support Israel after December 2008-January 2009. If anything, after that, I am even against Israel having any legitimacy in the world community. Take the 5,000,000 Israelis and transport the ones who do not already have American passports New York. I doubt that even half of them don't already have U.S. passports...
