Thomas Friedman gets it...
I have had my disputes with Friedman over the years, particularly his CEO-centric view of trade agreements. On Israel, too, I think his all too conventional elite wisdom veered toward neo-con land--but fortunately he only stayed for a visit.
Here, Friedman recognizes the truth about how previous Israeli leaders played previous US leaders with regard to the settlements in the territories.
I guess he's becoming another self-hating Jew, eh, Bibi?
