POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN IN THE INDEPENDENT

This is one of the few times the unpleasant truth behind a high-level American decision has been exposed so clearly.

There isn’t even a question in this matter.

The Israel Lobby acted here quickly and overwhelmingly to eliminate the appointment of a highly qualified man they happen to regard as too independent in his thinking regarding the Middle East.

It is stunning that a country of 7 million so deeply influences the policies and decisions of the leader of 300 million, a country of 7 million, moreover, with violently paranoid behaviors and an unwillingness to make any sacrifice for peace.

It is a potentially dangerous and de-stabilizing situation when it comes to matters like Iran.

It really is time for Israel to make peace and stop abusing its neighbors, but the only force on earth that can force Israel to do so is the American government.

But the American government seems incapable of exercising the least independent or fair judgment here, even under a strong, intelligent, and popular leader like Obama.
