Obama Heads to Israel

by Stephen Lendman

Expect little from the trip.

As now scheduled, he'll arrive March 20. He'll remain until March 23. It's his first presidential visit. He made several trips before. He's only the fifth US president to go. Others included Nixon, Carter, Clinton, and GW Bush.

He waited until Israel's new government was formed. It took weeks to do so. On March 15, coalition partners agreed.

Netanyahu remains Prime Minister. Yair Lapid and Naftali Bennett become troika partners. It's Israel's most extremist government ever. It reflects fascism writ large. Israelis have themselves to blame. They're stuck with what they should have rejected.

Obama and Netanyahu don't like each other. It doesn't matter. America's committed to Israel's security. Doing so jeopardizes its own. The special relationship's often one-sided.

It does more harm than good. It's wearing thin. It still persists. It's long past time to reconsider policy. Don't expect Obama to do it. He's largely in lockstep with Israeli policy.
