ari, you forgot something

In his op-ed piece today in Ha’aretz, Ari Shavit seems to have forgotten an important fact. He writes:

ariThe U.S. president’s behavior is not entirely fair. Obama knows the urgent problem in the Middle East is not natural growth in the settlements, and that there is no Palestinian partner at the moment for real peace. There is quite a bit of the absurd in the fact that the man who dons kid gloves when it comes to North Korea’s ruler and the president of Venezuela slams the Israeli prime minister with a resounding punch.

You see Ari, the thing is, and correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think North Korea or Venezuela are getting 30 billion dollars of military aid over the next decade. I mean, maybe it’s just me, but… doesn’t that give the guy a say in things (or the right to slam a resounding punch, as you would say)? I guess I’m kind of old-fashioned…

    That is *exactly* what I was thinking when I read Shavit’s piece. Great minds… 😉
