Sure Dennis Ross and Bibi are BFF’s.

US envoy Dennis Ross under Clinton said this of Netanyahu’s election victory in 1996 -

“Our collective relief became a collective dread”

“Following his first election, in 1996, he “was overcome by hubris,” Dennis Ross, then and now a principal in the administration’s Mideast diplomacy, recounts in a book he published in 2004. After Netanyahu’s first meeting with President Bill Clinton, Ross wrote, “Clinton observed: ‘He thinks he is the superpower and we are here to do whatever he requires.’ “

Dershowitz... tacitly concedes that the President's background and the record of at least some of his relevant advisers and appointees -- and thus the auguries regarding the likely direction of policy under his stewardship -- have indeed given reason for worry... Zbigniew Brzezinski, who lauded the 2006 Mearsheimer-Walt demonization of the pro-Israel lobby -- a demonization Dershowitz himself felt impelled to rebut; General Merrill 'Tony' McPeak, who thinks American Jewish voters prevent the U.S. playing a constructive role in bringing about peace; Robert Malley, who has urged an imposed settlement on Israel and advocated negotiations with Hamas; Samantha Power, now on the National Security Council, who has also advocated external imposition of a settlement on Israel; George Mitchell, now Special Envoy to the Middle East, whose response to the outbreak of the Palestinian terror wave in 2000 was to call for more Israeli concessions before demanding Palestinians fulfill their already existing, unfulfilled obligations under Oslo; and Daniel Kurtzer, who largely blames Israel for the 2000 Camp David negotiations failure.
