  •  in the middle of a hot conflict as in the last 2 (0+ / 0-)

    weeks I would tend to agree.  But in the long term I think that even-handed U.S. perceptions and treatment of the conflict could help.  Netanyahu may be in a class by himself, but we also helped him get there.  

    •  Yes, Bibi is in a class by himself. (0+ / 0-)

      In the Israeli political spectrum, he's a moderate. His only real competition is Evet.

      Imagine Evet "mowing the grass" in Gaza.

      Divine intervention "could help" too, but is just as likely as "even-handed U.S. perceptions and treatment of the conflict."

      •  point is it would be an improvement. I'd rather (0+ / 0-)

        see equal treatment from the U.S. side than unequal treatment.  Whether it actually filters down is another story.  But at least it could help ensure that a key broker is actually a broker.  

        Not that I'm optimistic.

          •  You're not serious (0+ / 0-)

            You think Israel would ever accept Germany as a 'broker' on an issue that they see as live and death?
