12. how do the GOP get away with being so unpatriotic?
our U.S. president didn't even insult Netanyahu, and he's supposed to apologize to him? the American president is obliged to protect the feelings of Israeli politicians?

An Israeli politician who himself insulted our country, by the way. He didn't insult one of our politicians, he insulted America. He insulted the country which is Israel's only friend in the world. Did anyone demand that Netanyahu apologize to us?

The United States and Israel have made a huge effort this month to patch up the sometimes difficult relationship between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. But a newly released video of Netanyahu, speaking in an unvarnished manner in 2001 about relations with the United States and the peace process, may cause some heartburn at the White House.

"I know what America is," Netanyahu told a group of terror victims, apparently not knowing his words were being recorded. "America is a thing you can move very easily, move it in the right direction. They won't get in their way."
