Bibi over Obama

Quin Hillyer is a senior editorial writer at the Washington Times and senior editor of The American Spectator. Here's a great comment on the Netanyahu v. Obama knockdown dragout.
After yesterday's meetings between Binyamin Netanyahu and Barack Obama, for the first time in my life I quite literally feel more allegiance to the head of a foreign state than I do to the president of the United States.... Let me change the word "allegiance" to "trusting respect," and let me say also that this means I believe Netanyahu's words, trust his judgment, and feel more secure in his motives, more than I believe, trust, and feel more secure with Obama....

I write this not as a Jew, but as a cradle Episcopalian, or a sort of hybrid Anglo-Catholic. In short, not based on faith, but on reason. If the Jewish state can't allow free people to build housing in Jerusalem, then the Irish state may as well not let Irish build in Dublin. And if the American administration tries to tell the Jewish state that it is wrong to merely advance by one mid-range step along a multi-step process towards permitting those buildings, then the Jewish PM has every right to tell the American administration the same thing Dick Cheney told the execrable Patrick Leahy.

That's the good news.

The bad news is American Jews are not going to desert The One... any time soon.
