Sources: US behind European protest measures (Israelis blame US for European protests)

Source: Ynetnews.com

The United States was behind the summoning of Israeli ambassadors by several European nations, Israeli sources with close ties to US administration officials said Monday.



"The European move is essentially an American move," one official said. "The Brits asked the Americans how to act."

So, we rubber stamp their decisions AFTER they try to hijack our Presidential elections, and then they turn around and blame us for what European countries do.

I agree with Rahm Emmanuel: "You Israelis are ingrates. You’ve screwed yourselves.”

They are not our friends.

2. The Israelis' hatred of Obama is pathological.

They violate international law and try to for time eternal destroy the two-state solution, the rest of the world reacts angrily EXCEPT for the United States.

And their reaction is to blame Obama for how the rest of the world reacts.

With friends like Israel, do we need enemies?

Fucking ingrates.

3. That story makes no sence whatsoever

especially when you look at how the administration has voted in the UN, earlier on today. It sounds like netanyahu and his cronies are trying to take a soft dig at the President.

4. Israel expects absolute obedience from the US.

They expect that the nation of 300 million should be the unquestioning servant of the nation of 10 million.

Obama jumped, but didn't ask Bibi "how high" and for this he must be punished.

They are only the US's and Palestinians' bully.

6. Is anybody named in this article?

Or is this "sources say" nonsense that people here would ignore if it had anything other than Israel involved? Whatever....carry on with the outrage.

8. The next step is "the US has helped isolate Israel by offering criticism in public

and showing daylight between us, thus encouraging the Europeans to do this."

AIPAC, Romney et al played that exact card time after time regarding 67 borders, etc.

Netanyahu and his government expect us to keep our mouths shut, nod our heads, and continue to throw money and gifts at them as if it's our live's greatest pleasure.

And Netanyahu is going to be rewarded for his constant attacks on Obama and derailment of the two state solution with a crushing victory next month.

They are not our friends. They do not want a friend or ally, they want a servant.

9. When someone is actually named

please let me know. Until then, I'll consider this a sourceless bullshit story put out to get both sides excited - and it's working well in that regard.

10. You apparently have not seen this play before.

This is how they operate. Leak stuff to the press, get their surrogates in the press, think tanks, advocacy organizations, and Congress to repeat it.

11. The first ones they turn on are the people who go out of their way to protect them.

I've met a few people like that in my lifetime.

For that kind of...dysfunction...to rise to the level of "political stance" is pretty disturbing. It's decades of hubris, entitlement and being enabled at almost every turn.

And while the Israeli government thinks they're getting something they want by getting their way for the moment, or lashing out, it does damage to Israel that no outsider or outside nation could ever do. It's the kind of thing you see from a drug-addicted narcissistic personality during an intervention, not the government of a nation.

How can you possibly fix that? How can you possibly normalize that situation?

How does Israel help itself out of this?

Not our problem. There problems are their own.

Time for US policy to recognize that ownership of the I/P dispute should not reside within our borders.
