  1. Does Romney hate Arabs?

    I can come up with a similar list.

  2. You could come up with a similar list to suggest that Netenyahu hates America.

  3. Hard to believe the AEI can’t find anyone better than this to comment on foreign policy.

    As a lifeling Zionist, who has more family in Israel than I do in the US, whose relatives arrived around WW1, and have fought in every war from 1948 to guarding Israel today, I can tell you that Mr. Netanyahu has taken the joy out of being a Zionist. And there are millions of Israelis who feel the same way, but here in America, some of my chaverim think loyalty to Likud is a requisite to faithfullness to the Jewish State.

    No deal.

  4. Obama hates Israel so much that he has given the country bunker busting bombs, an upgraded missile defense system, intelligence information, diplomatic cover at just about every turn, and more than $3 billion in aid per year that the wealthy country does not need. And what has Obama asked for in return? To cease building on disputed land (which they have not done), to talk about peace using 1967 borders as a starting point (which they will not do), and to calm down about Iran (which they have not done either).

    It has nothing to do with Obama “hating” Israel. Because if that is how you treat a country you “hate,” then there are lots of countries that would simply adore being so hated. Nope, it is about what do WE get in return for standing by that foreign country as it pursues short sighted policy after short sighted policy. Obama loves America more than he values Israel; a shame that more people in Washington and at the AEI could not be similarly characterized . . . .

    I think it’s long past time that the name of this institute be changed to the Likud Enterprise Inst. and be forced, along with a number of its sister organizations in the beltway, to register as an agency of a foreign government.
