Bibi Netanyahu left Washington, DC earlier this week in shame according to world newspapers. It was been widely reported that trouble has been about the announcement of additional settlements in Jerusalem. Jerusalem has always been and will continue to be one of the most difficult issues when it comes to lasting peace with the Palestinians.
Apparently it had become so contentious that Bibi felt he needed to go back to the Israeli embassy to use the phone, as he was not comfortable and felt that he may be eavesdropped on. Of course, that has not been said publically, but it is a pretty serious charge if true.
The Israeli's have been very consistent about one thing, the willingness they show for peace talks revolves around how secure they feel at that particular moment. The Israeli's are not feeling very secure right now. Iran is getting closer and closer to nuclear weapons and the capacity to hit Israel. Why exactly would they feel secure at the moment?
Does anyone really believe that President Obama has publically dissed Israel over a few apartment buildings? Was the real reason that Netanyahu was in town was to tell the President they are ready to bomb Iran? It seems very unlikely to me that we would put Bibi in the position of worldwide embarrassment over some apartment buildings, especially when you consider the proof that the announcement for the building permits was simply bad timing, no ill will was intended. If it is indeed true that Israel is moving closer to taking real action with Iran, the very last thing we should be doing is put them in a position that they don't trust us.
A belief in the written constitution. The belief that we are responsible for ourselves and for our families. The belief that we are allowed to fail. The belief in a strong national defense are a few of the things that make me just a conservative girl.
