Gideon Levy lays it on the usual

Gideon Levy, writing in Haaretz, says Obama has officially joined the Likud Party in having America's UN Ambassador veto the resolution condemning settlement building in Israel.

It is not enough to say, "Oh, Gideon, that's just American politics." It is really sad because the one bright spot in Obama's administration was a true understanding among ironically his Jewish advisers that Israeli leadership is driving drunk.

Obama is just running for re-election, and he does not want problems with those well-heeled Jewish liberals who support the odious AIPAC--I met some of such folks during the 2008 campaign here in San Diego. That is what drives Obama, and it is driving me more and more to wondering if I will pull the lever in 2012's presidential election for the Green Party?

While my basic political sensibilities are Green, as long as the Green Party USA has a platform with nonsense like the following, I could never "pull the lever" for them in a presidential election:

"We reaffirm the right and feasibility of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes in Israel."
