”œI don’t think America should play the role of the leader of the peace process,” he said. ”œInstead we should stand by our ally. Again, my inclination is to follow the guidance of our ally Israel, as to where our facilities and embassies would exist.”
Now that’s the kind of preening fealty to a foreign power we expect from the leader of the free world. Unfortunately, Mitt is the moderate in the Republican field, as Anshel Pfeffer points out at Haartz. I’ll go kosher if Obama doesn’t compete hard for the crown of “I love Israel best” over the next, very long year. So my guess is that this is the most moderate statement on Israel we’ll hear.
Nothing after the break, because i’m too damned tired of the geopolitics wrapped up in the religious tradition of three, whiny, violent siblings in the back seat of the world’s family car. If God were a proper father, He’d not only turn the damned car around, he’d smack the shit out of all of them and teach them how to behave.
