America's entanglement with Israel

Kristol/Palin memo to Obama: Dither not to liberate Israel’s neighbours!

On her recent pilgrimage to the un-Holy Land of apartheid Israel, Sarah Palin’s pronouncement on the “Arab Spring” had a familiar ring to it:

She took a swipe at President Barack Obama and what she described as his ‘dithering’ response to the political upheaval in the Middle East, saying he ‘should have done more for Arab protesters.’

Celebrating the bombing of Libya as “America’s fifth war of Muslim liberation” one week later, an ebullient William Kristol wrote:

And so, despite his doubts and dithering, President Obama is taking us to war in another Muslim country. Good for him.

On the pretty safe assumption that Bill Kristol isn’t taking his cue from Sarah Palin, it would seem that Palin’s “foreign policy” is still very much a product of the tutelage of her seemingly erstwhile booster.
