A) You do know I did not write this article, right?

B) Netanyahu is represenatives of Jews now? That’s like saying Americans are all crooks because of Nixon.

A) Yes.

B) No, Netanyahu is a jew though, IIRC. As a leader he should consider the effect of his actions on the politics in America, but his primary concern has to be the welfare of his citizens. Getting Mint elected would have a relatively minor effect on US policy with regards to Israel. But doing so by going to war would have a large negative effect on the well being of Israel’s populace. So I don’t think that Netanyahu, having at least some degree of pragmatism, is foolish enough to make such a tradeoff. And if he did make such a choice he would have to explain it to other Jews, a people whom in my experience are relatively pragmatic and intelligent.
