There was a pretty superficial opinion piece in the Jerusalem Post about Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and the American Elections, What the prime minister thinks but cannot say out loud, by Gil Hoffman.
I think it's pretty clear that Netanyahu knows enough about American politics to know that:
- None of the wannabes can be trusted to keep any pro-Israel campaign promises.
- Whatever he says will end up backfiring.
A U.S. State Department-funded group is financing an Israeli campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and has hired former Obama aides to help with its grassroots organizing efforts.
U.S.-based activist group OneVoice International has partnered with V15, an “independent grassroots movement” in Israel that is actively opposing Netanyahu’s party in the upcoming elections, Ha’aretz reported on Monday. Former national field director for President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign Jeremy Bird is also reportedly involved in the effort.
The Americans play dirty, and it really doesn't pay for Netanyahu to get involved. With the Republican top wannabes still trading attacks on each other, it's looking more and more like Hillary will get to be the first female POTUS. And she can be even worse than Obama. Remember that she was his Secretary of State during his first term. And her Suha kiss will never be forgotten nor forgiven.
The doubts about her swelled in November 1999, when she palled around with Yasir Arafat’s wife, Suha Arafat, in the West Bank. During one speech, Suha Arafat accused “Israeli forces” of spraying “poison gas,” causing “an increase in cancer cases among Palestinian women and children.” Throughout the tirade, with Arafat’s words translated simultaneously, Clinton kept smiling. After the speech, Clinton kissed Arafat warmly on the cheek. Critics charged that the first lady had shown her true colors, implicitly endorsing this modern blood libel.
