Why throw US politics into the Arab-Israeli mix?
Reader comment on: Goldstone Report Marks Another Obama Failure

Doesn't Israel have enough problems with the Palestinians, Iran, the United Nations, and world opinion in general? Now you want to drive a wedge between the US and Israel?
The Goldstone Report has nothing to do with Obama or US policy. The anti-Israel situation at the U.N. Human Rights Council has been going on for many years, including throughout the Bush administation. The US, under both Presidents, has attempted, to gain support for a more balanced view without much success. There is no American politics here, except in your perverted attempt to place partisanship ahead of the best interests of the US or Israel.
US-Israel relations will continue to be strong as they have under either parties. But American politics will continue to wither until the best interests of the country are seen as more important than the best interests of the political parties. Perhaps Winston Churchill said it best, "Some men change their party for the sake of their prinicples;others their prinicples for the sake of their party."
With the animosity of the supporters in both parties, it may take the establishment of a new political party to restore the democracy we once had.
