Regime change. Generally it's a term and tactic reserved for America's enemies. But what if the Obama administration is developing a more nuanced version for one of the United States' closest allies -- Israel?
As the brouhaha between Israel and the United States over settlements and Jerusalem continues to simmer, you have to wonder whether President Obama is focused on changing the behavior of Israel's prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, or changing prime ministers instead. The absence of a clear strategy to move the Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations forward, highlighted by the administration's repeated calls for a settlements freeze -- which neither Netanyahu nor his Likud-led right-wing coalition can accept -- raises the question of whether Washington is interested in bringing about a new and more pliable Israeli government.

“No, Mr. Bond, we want you to die!”
My favorite movie quote.
I hope Bibi stands his ground. This country is playing with fire by messing with Israel. A new saying, kind of like with Texas. “Don’t mess with Israel”.
Obama doesn’t just want regime change, he want’s property ownership change, as in the Palestinians to rule over all the land, dancing on the bones of the Israelis.
As usual, the LA Times is clueless.
We need a regime change here in the US.
I’m in Israel on business for six days, and four days for pleasure. What a wonderful time to be here: Today, the very somber Day of Remembrance which began last night at sundown, Bebe on eight channels last night (unfortunately none in English), continuous documentaries and movies on the Holocaust; Independence Day next Monday and Memorial Day on Tuesday. I had a wonderful dinner this evening at an Arab restaurant near Akko, less than 15km from the border with Lebanon with two new friends, a Russian emigre here since 1991 and a son of Rumanian immigrants born here and a witness to the Six Day War and the Yom Kippur War. I have yet to see a Palestinian but I’ve seen and encountered lots of Israeli Muslims who are free to live and worship and enjoy all the benefits of citizenship. It’s a real pleasure to witness the good things about life in Israel that we never hear about in the States.
November 2010 cannot arrive too soon. But, will it be too late and will it be another Democrat win?
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Miller wrote the column below on the same subject almost a year ago. Obama’s desire to get rid of Netanyahu was on his agenda before his inauguration. No matter how Israelis view Netanyahu they can see through Obama’s machinations and his bizarre worldview.
The LA TIMES????
