Sorry, but anyone who almost blindly follows Bibi Netanyahu has major problems. Caroline Glick's views can be very, very problematic...
Hadassa usually brings up very good points and as a result, I became much warier about Glick.
In Friday's Jerusalem Post, Glick has one of her long opinion pieces. She does criticize Bibi Netanyahu:
"Given Feiglin's inherent weakness, Netanyahu's post-primary focus on him is shocking...In focusing the public's attention on Feiglin, Netanyahu appears to be reacting to foreign pressures rather than domestic ones."
But her criticism of Moshe Feiglin just reflects her own life style:
"Feiglin has more in common with the Left he abhors than with his party members. Like the Left, Feiglin bases his strategic and economic notions on a complete denial of reality. Whereas the Left ignores the Arabs, Feiglin ignores the West. Feiglin's religious adherence to his views has made him few friends in Likud or elsewhere in Israeli politics."
Even worse is her insistence that Israel must gear its government to getting along with America. The ruling coalition must be formed with that in mind:
"No doubt, it is in the hopes of building better relations with the incoming Obama administration that Netanyahu now seeks to distance himself from Feiglin and advocates forming a broad governing coalition with his political foes in Kadima and Labor. Apparently, in his view only such a broad coalition will insulate him from a US presidential assault. In the interests of forming such a coalition, while highlighting his disputes with Feiglin, Netanyahu has sought to obfuscate his ideological differences with Kadima and Labor."
Sorry, but that's outrageous. The United States pressures Israel, because Israel tries to get American approval. If the State of Israel would act as a proud independent, self-reliant country, the United States wouldn't bother with us. It would probably take more than one "no" to make them stop, but it's worth it.
Honestly, think about it:
What does Obama really know about our needs?
And does Obama really care?
Our Israeli Government must remember just who numero uno, number one priority really is. Our government should be promoting our needs, not our enemies' desires.
I was hoping that Caroline Glick knew that. Apparently, she doesn't.
