Does the Israeli tail wag the American dog? Is Israel really an American outpost? It really doesn't matter. The whole relationship is based on a patchwork of lies and deception. As we try to sort out the truth in Gaza, it might be helpful to look back at an atrocity committed by Israel.....against the U.S.
Conventional wisdom is that Prime Minister Netanyahu has no fear that he will lose American support. Maybe that's true. Maybe there really is no limit to what we will tolerate when it comes to our "friends".
This might be a good time to try to connect a couple dots. One labeled "Liberty" and one labeled "Democracy".
