Like it or lump it

The Israeli have had it good for too long, it seems, and don’t realise that unquestioning American support is killing their nation:

A majority of Israelis believe that the Middle East policies of US President Barack Obama are not good for the Jewish state, according to a Dahaf Institute poll taken ahead of Obama’s speech to the Muslim world.

The poll of 501 Israelis, sponsored by Yediot Aharonot and representing a statistical sample of the population, found that 53 percent believed Obama’s policies were not good for Israel and just 26% said they were good. The rest did not respond.

As Akiva Eldar writes in Haaretz, an imposed solution is probably the only eventual answer.
