Where did you see a kick at Obama? I thought he went out of his way to show appreciation...
Of course he did but after everything is said and done it's a major kick at Obama. It's not for no reason he's so against it.

Perhaps someone can enlighten me.

What exactly does Israel want to do about Iran? What action does it seek to take?

Is Obama's plan different than Israel's plan?

To stick with the sanctions until they break and agree to fully give up nuclear ambitions?

Just thinking.

I will be more than happy to enlighten you. It does not matter what they want to do. They kick and scream like a little child all they want but in the end it does not mean squat. The US is the parent and is calling the shoots.

That's the point of him speaking to congress to get the US to call shots that don't ruin the world
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

A little history, old man.

In 2007, Israel bombed the syrian nuclear reactor without the blessing of the US.  ~ George W. Bush in his book Decision Points, p. 421422

In 1981, Israel bombed the Iraqi nuclear reactor ignoring warnings from the US not to do so.

Among many others.

Don't be going crazy on me. Children do things all the time and get spanked for it. What would happen if the parent disowned the child.  :P

I'm not so sure the parent/child analogy works here very well. However, the fact that an intelligent and sensitive person like you keeps wanting to use that analogy anyway tells me a lot about the misconceptions that surround this issue.

I guess it depends on whether we are comparing modern political entities or we are comparing civilizations. The US was founded on "Judeo-Christian" values. So who's the child and who's the parent?

The bottom line I take from this is a very helpful reminder that when we act as Israelis or Israel supporters we aren't nearly as strong as when we act as Jews. We became a people at Sinai, not at the Balfour Declaration.
