OBAMA INC: NETANYAHU “DISRESPECTFUL” OF OBAMA
“The frustration with the Israelis on a lot of issues has been sky-high”
Before David Remnick went on to his lackadaisical editorship of the New Yorker, he wrote Lenin’s Tomb in which he poked fun at Soviet apparatchiks. Then in the era of Obama, Remnick became a creature that a Moscow propagandist kissing Putin’s ass would have turned his nose up at.
His latest triumph is a ridiculously fawning profile of Kerry’s failed tenure as Secretary of State.

1. Engage in terrorism
2. Sabotage negotiations
3. Drag in third parties
4. Form unity governments with Hamas
5. Go to the UN and the ICC
6. They have Kerry and Obama on their side.
Yeah, they’re utterly powerless. Utterly.
Also Kerry had an awesome plan to get Israel to give up the Golan Heights to Assad.
