Whenever Any Form of Government Becomes Destructive To These Ends,
It Is The Right of the People to Alter Or To Abolish It,
And To Institute New Government

Globe and Mail says Netanyahu's got a strong position for Israel

Michael Bell wrote in The Globe and Mail that Israel's prime minister is in a strong position on middle eastern topics. But he slips when brings up the following:
Despite persistent criticism by U.S. administrations, particularly that of President Barack Obama, the Israeli-U.S. relationship has not been weakened. The situation would be more favourable for Mr. Netanyahu with Hillary Clinton. Earlier this month, an agreement was signed between the Obama administration and Israel committing the United States to delivering $38-billion (U.S.) in military aid. This is reinforced by far-reaching intelligence and security co-operation. It is buttressed by tax-deductible donations from wealthy Americans and well-endowed foundations aimed at expanding the Israeli presence in the West Bank.
Oh for heaven's sake. He's falling back on the laughable notion that only a leftist can prove a favorable relation with Israel. That's not so at all, and let's not forget that Hillary Clinton's approach to the Benghazi issue was disastrous. She also led a favorable relationship with Arafat and his wife. So why should we expect her to be any better to Israel?

I think Bell's got to wake up and smell the coffee.
