12 ways the US administration has failed its ally Israel
Times of Israel ^ | 6/3/14 | David Horovitz

Mere hours after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas swore in a government backed by the Islamic extremist Hamas group, the US State Department legitimized the arrangement, declaring that it would work with the new government because it “does not include members affiliated with Hamas.”

What was saddest about Washington’s insistence on accepting Abbas’s paper-thin veneer over his government’s new nature — his “technocrat” ministers were all approved by Hamas — is that it represents only the Obama administration’s latest abrogation of leadership, logic and leverage at Israel’s expense. Rather than rushing to embrace a Palestinian government in which an unreformed Hamas is a central component, what was to stop the US conditioning its acceptance on a reform of Hamas? What was to stop Washington saying that it would be happy to work with Abbas’s new government, the moment its Hamas backers recognized Israel, accepted previous agreements and renounced terrorism? Not a particularly high bar. What was to stop the US making such a demand, one of tremendous importance to its ally Israel? Only its incomprehensible reluctance to do.

I really really hope that Israel destroys the Iranian nuclear program and for good measure wipe out their political leaders.

I agree with you but it will result in 200,000 missiles being fired at Israeli civilian population centers, requiring a massive and quick Israeli hammering of the entire Gaza and Lebanese infrastructures, which in turn will kill many Hizbollah and HAMAS fighters AND MANY civilians. This will bring in the UN, the European Union, the White House, the ACLU, the Communist Worker's Party, the MENSA Society, the Fair Play For Cuba Committee, the Animal Rights Foundation and of course, Greenpeace. What will Israel do then? :)
