The Illusion of Unconditional American Support

WASHINGTON — For many weeks now, the political arena has been focusing on Chuck Schumer. Both U.S. President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu were doing all they could to lobby New York’s senior (Jewish) senator to adopt their positions on the Iran nuclear deal. Both the White House and the Prime Minister’s Office assumed that Schumer’s vote would be a decisive one. It was presumed that whichever way Schumer went, dozens of Democratic members of Congress would follow.

And indeed, two weeks ago Schumer decided. He capitulated to the indirect and sophisticated pressures exerted on him by the Israeli prime minister and came out against the position of the president of the United States.

    Haaretz is the Israeli newspaper for people who hate Israel. As an earlier thread said, Donald Trump will be jumping into the fray on September 9, and the fight over the Iran deal can turn into a political donnybrook.

      I doubt one can find a rag more leftist than Haaretz.

    The agreement stinks. I don’t blame anyone for opposing it and question the allegiance and sanity of those who support it. Kerry capitulated. Iran gave up nothing and received everything.
