Two bits of very good news emerge today.
First, following on the publication of Dennis Ross’ new book on how to use negotiations to launch a war against Iran, Haaretz is reporting that Ross is being relieved of his duties as Obama’s point man on Iran. It is as if this current Obama administration will not offer all the support possible to warmongers to kill as much Muslims as possible! Poor Ross must be pining for the good days of American foreign policy, where lust for war against Muslims seemed like a precondition for joining any foreign policy team.
Second, the American people, it seems, have had enough with the incestuous relationship of their government with the regime of Tel Aviv. In a few months, the percentage of Americans who say the US should support Israel has dropped from 71% to 44%. The Israel Project (a propaganda outfit that makes AIPAC look reasoned) conducted the poll, though it refuses to publish its results officially. Could it be the mass murder in Gaza? The apartheid in the West Bank? Or could it be the rhetoric of Bibi and his fascist buddies? Or was it, perhaps, the Israeli ministerial calls for regime change in America?
Not all is well in America’s Zionistan. Are these two bits of news a turning point in the American-Israeli relationship? We’ll have to wait and see.
