Finally, America vs. Israel

What Joe Biden told the Israelis:

    “This is starting to get dangerous for us. What you’re doing here undermines the security of our troops who are fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. That endangers us and it endangers regional peace.”

What Hillary Clinton told CNN:

    “The announcement of the settlements the very day that the vice president was there was insulting.”

What Hillary Clinton told the Israelis (paraphrased by State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley):

    “The secretary said she could not understand how this happened, particularly in light of the United States’ strong commitment to Israel’s security.”

What a senior U.S. official told the Washington Post:

    “We think the burden is on the Israelis to do something that could restore confidence in the process and to restore confidence in the relationship with the United States.”

What Israeli ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren told his colleagues:

    “Israel’s ties with the United States are in their worst crisis since 1975…a crisis of historic proportions.”

What General David Petraeus told his superiors back in January (paraphrased by Mark Perry in Foreign Policy):

    “The message couldn’t be plainer: Israel’s intransigence could cost American lives.”

So American interests and Israeli interests are not identical? Finally, a confrontation where it counts!
