weiss captures perfectly the Obama attitudinal ambient. Obama is uncharastically 'feeble' for a president of the USA. if Israel wanted to embarrass blac people they could not have done better than to make Obama president! { mapoui}

Israel’s damage to ‘American interests is incalculable’ — Shlaim in ‘The Hill’ of all places
By Philip Weiss on December 27, 2010


Oh my, The Hill is getting religion. Avi Shlaim on the Israel lobby. He doesn’t even live here, but he understands what’s going on. Notice the arguments that realists Chas Freeman and Mearsheimer & Walt and Desch and McConnell have all made before Shlaim. The English left has no difficulty seeing the problem; it is the American left that is incapable of the most vital task before it, making neoconservative a dirty word. And it can’t do this work because there are neocons in the family:

The American-Israeli special relationship is a classic example of the tail that wags the dog. As a result of its palpable partiality towards Israel, America has lost all credibility in the eyes not only of the Palestinians but of the wider Arab and Muslim worlds….

Obama’s position is pusillanimous and, for a superpower, indescribably feeble. Instead of leaning on the stronger party, he presses the weaker party to make more and more concessions….

The damage that Israel causes to American interests is incalculable. During the Cold War Israel was a strategic asset for America. Today it is a political, diplomatic, and strategic liability. The neoconservatives never tire of telling us that the American and the Israeli national interests are identical. Anyone who believes that would believe anything. An argument can be made that the occupation of the West Bank serves the Israeli national interest, though I would dispute that. However, the argument that the Israeli occupation of the West Bank serves the American national interest is simply preposterous….

Congress is sometimes described as Israeli-occupied territory. With such an ineffectual president in the White House, it is likely to take longer to liberate Congress than to liberate the Palestinian territories.
