“Friends” of Israel

An article by Fred Dardick for Canada Free Press (reproduced 
here by the Campus Watch website, but presumably not for its academic merit) announces: “Obama is no friend of Israel”.

Among numerous other offences, the Obama administration is accused of suggesting – horror of horrors – that Israel should sign the nuclear non-proliferation treaty (which every other country has already done, apart from India, Pakistan and North Korea). 

The trouble with articles of this kind is that they always equate “Israel’s interests” with policies advocated by the most extreme Zionist elements. In the long run (as we have already begun to see during the last few years) those policies will prove far more damaging to Israel than anything Hamas or Hizbullah can do.
