The blog “Just World News” has more info on Rahm Emanuel’s position on Israel. It says Emanuel has warned AIPAC that failure to make progress on the Palestinian issue will hurt Israel’s chances for progress on restraining Iran’s nuclear program, although it doesn’t explain exactly why. It does say that most American Jews are Democrats who support Obama and thus would be loathe to buck him on this issue. In that case, who does AIPAC speak for? Presumably a lot of Jews with a lot of money, but maybe not George Soros or Rahm Emanuel. So, what are Bibi Netanyahu and Israel’s other right wing leaders going to do? Like Nixon’s opening to China, they could probably get away with a genuine opening to the Palestinians.
