  1. I think the ultimate losers from the Bibi wolf-crying will be the Israeli people themselves…if they don’t wake up soon and change course they will have few, other than their bought, allies left.
    Sympathy has its limits, and over-milking is draining that cow to a dry bone.

He doesn’t have the empathy to do it.”

    “PM Netanyahu visits wounded soldiers at Soroka Hospital, 19.8.11” http://www.flickr.com/photos/israelipm/6091894387/ and

    That took me all of 3 minutes to find. And I don’t even like Netanyahu. All savvy politicians understand the merits of visiting injured soldiers and veterans regardless of their level of empathy.

      1. From the Ynet link:

        “Netanyahu shook hands with my dad and me; he set next to Ziv and presented him with a gift – a book of his brother Yoni Netanyahu‘s letters, with a personal dedication. He asked Ziv if he read the book and Ziv replied he did, and that he admires Yoni Netanyahu as a commander, a fighter and as a man.”

        Netanyahu’s dedication read: “An admired soldier and commander, the whole of Israel salutes you for your courage and your sacrifice protecting the land of Israel.”

        I always wondered about the psychology of Bibi living in the shadow of the heroism of his older brother Yoni. The PM had a very strong tie to his father and the goals of Zionism, never to surrender Jerusalem nor Judea and Samaria. This “toughness” may be superficial as in the political sytem Netanyahu often needs to compromise. It must have been a démasqué for Bibi to hide in the US under an alias Ben Nitay.
