So I know this is a couple of days old, but it’s something hilarious I think everyone should see. When Obama took office, I remember thinking to myself that his type of diplomacy might be just what’s needed to maybekindasorta bring some kind of peace to the Middle East. And when he recently met with Abbas and told him that the U.S. backs a two-state solution 100%, I was both surprised and heartened that a breakthrough might be made…BUT, I was also curious how Israel would react to a leader of the U.S. not giving them everything they want when they want it.
“The American demand to prevent natural growth is unreasonable, and brings to mind pharaoh, who said, ‘Every son that is born you shall cast into the river,’” Science and Technology Minister Daniel Herschkowitz (Habayit Hayehudi) said.
At least they didn’t overreact.
