That the prime minister of Israel is dissing and lying about the U.S. president is offensive. Whatever hay he makes with Congress today is at the price of American support over the long run. Time is definitely not on the right-wing Israeli government's side.
Congressional Democrats should be ashamed of themselves for joining in the fake "pro-Israel" chest-thumping. Of course negotiations must happen, but it is up to Israel and the Palestinians to do them -- just as the president said. Reid should not undercut the U.S. president.
