The U.S. has begun to distance itself from the Israeli situation on the inside. While continuing to provide Israel the same lip service they have been giving the U.S.. From a global perspective the United Nations Human Rights council condemned Israel today.

Americans are familiar with the saying "if you’re going to talk the talk, you’ve got to walk the walk". U.S. and Israeli relations are starting to resemble that phrase. It makes sense, if Israel is going to continue to brazenly disregard U.S. recommendations. Now the AJC issued this statement today on General Patreus. Other Israeli papers were quick to put their spin on the General’s thoughts. However you decide to interpret this, there is no disputing the Secretary of Defense, Gates recent statements. "The absence of Middle East peace does affect US national security interests in the region," US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said Thursday.

If Jewish slanted media outlets like the Washington Post and Fox news ever allow Americans to see through the health care smoke screen. Which they don’t intend to. They don’t want Republicans and the American people to see their path to power. That path lies in making a connection between American soldiers lives being lost and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The task at hand is formidable for the United States. The objective is clear. We are determined to slowly apply pressure to Israel to come to the table. Each time we do, Israel throws us a curve ball. As Palestinian Notes, Ray Hanania points out, the Middle East is well aware of the games Israel and its American media partners are playing against Obama.

So how does the U.S. move forward? They’ve taken it slow. Not wanting to revisit the Yitzhak Rabin type atmosphere during the Clinton era. For one, the Obama administration needs to continue doing what they have been doing in recent days. Distance themselves from Israel. Show the Arab world that the U.S. is an impartial observer in the peace process. And if right wing Israel continues attempts at destabilizing the Obama administration’s domestic policy through their connections in the United States media. Then fight fire with fire.

There are many Israeli citizens that still have not forgotten what happened in the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin. The relaxed security that day from Shin Bet. By the way, Shin Bet means "Defender that shall not be seen". Great name, the only problem is they were a little clumsy this time around. In March 1997, President Kennedy’s son, John, Jr., ran a controversial article in his magazine, George. The article was written by Guela Amir, mother of Yigal Amir, the man who assassinated Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995. Now I think John Jr. knew a thing or two about assassinations.
