On the other hand, however, we have two countries united in standing against Iran and what seems to be a joint build up of forces in preparation for a confrontation which will involve both the US and Israel. To compound the notion of confusion, at about the same time as Oren is sounding off about relations with the US over the Palestine issue, America’s top military man, Admiral Mike Mullen, is in Israel to confer with Ehud Barak, Israel’s Defence Minister, and Gabi Ashkenazi, Israel’s Chief of Staff, and is telling them that ‘he always tries to see threats and challenges from the Israeli angle”.
Turkey just cut off diplomatic relations with Israel, canceled the water contract, and nor forbids Israeli aircraft to enter Turkish air space. Now THAT is a rift (and good on Turkey for having that kind of balls).
In contrast, President Pussy turned tail and ran to the United Nations to defend that Israel's attack on American citizens in international waters! So the US is still firmly under the thumb of Israel with the willing and eager complicity of the President and almost the entire Congress.
