I'll be overseas when it happens, but I'll be very interested to see what sort of reception the patriots at the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) give Netanyahu when he comes to speak at their annual conference at the end of this month. The appropriate response would be stone silence. (Actually, the appropriate reaction would be to withdraw the invitation to speak.) A standing ovation for Bibi--the reflexive response granted Israel's leader on these occasions--would send a controversial message here: it would give the impression that these Israelophiles approve of foreign leaders who insult the American Vice President (and, by extension, the President).
I'd hope that all American Jews, on both sides of the two-state issue, would agree that an insult directed at the Obama Administration is an insult directed at us all...and that AIPAC members, who I'm sure see themselves as Americans first, will behave accordingly.

I have news for that snivelling, Iran appeasing, Jew hating jackass...Israel defending its sovereignty against Marack, who appeases our enemies, supports terrorism against Jews in Israel, and is actively working to subvert democratic process and the Constitution of the United States is not an insult to Americans: IT'S A COMPLEMENT!
Israel is once again the sole defender of world freedom against Islamization, and Obamanism. Just as Americans are obligated to stand and defend the republic from tyranny, so to is Israel obligated to stand and protect the Jewish people from outsiders who would give her over to her enemies, which is exactly what Marack wants. And let us not forget the insults of the Marack administration that has already challenged the sovereignty of Israel's Supreme Court, expressing its unhappiness when it ruled that illegal Arab squatters had to leave property owned by Jews, after a decade of court challenges, not to mention the disrespectful manner in which Bibi, and other Israeli officials have been treated by Little Lord Fraudleroy.
If anyone's patriotism is to be questioned it is Joe Klein, who continues to cheerlead this administration's constant attempts to subvert the sovereignty of Israel, and dismantle the institutions of our republic. He has shown himself to be a vicious, Jew hating puke whose rantings should be given no credence, and whose journalistic integrity, if he ever had any, no longer exists.
Wake up Jews of America, the administration, and apparently the Democratic Party, is against us, and now the journalists as well. No doubt Republicans will prove themselves fair weather friends when OPEC rears its ugly head, like the Pavlovian stooges they are. As much as we love America, and all the freedom it has brought us, signals like this cannot be ignored.
Wake up Am Yisrael. Wake up.
