Jeffrey Goldberg’s words, my thoughts…
An African-American President with Muslim roots stands before the Muslim world and defends the right of Jews to a nation of their own in their ancestral homeland, and then denounces in vociferous terms the evil of Holocaust denial, and right-wing Israelis go forth and complain that the President is unsympathetic to the housing needs of settlers.
Incredible, just incredible.
But is this unexpected in any way? Did people think the right wing wouldn’t bash Obama for finally telling Israel that they’re in the wrong with the settlements?
