Too bad they don't have this attitude about Iran: Bibi be gone - Obama team plotting overthrow of Israel's Netanyahu

WASHINGTON -- The administration of President Barack Obama has launched what officials termed a psychological warfare campaign meant to topple Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Sources in the administration and Congress asserted that the White House and State Department have sought to destabilize Netanyahu's government by forcing him to agree to an indefinite freeze on Jewish construction in the West Bank and most of Jerusalem as well as the establishment of a Palestinian state by 2012. They said the campaign sought to replace Netanyahu with opposition leader and former foreign minister Tsipi Livni.

"Bibi is extremely vulnerable to pressure," a source familiar with the White House effort said. "We know this from his first term in office and believe he will collapse this time as well."

The sources said the administration's strategy aimed to de-legitimize Netanyahu in his government and right-wing constituency. They said Obama and his aides have sought to portray Netanyahu as a weak and unstable politician who will destroy relations with Washington as Israel seeks U.S. support for a military option against Iran.

It seems a given that nomatter where they find opposition to their ideas among countrymen, allies and friends the main strategy of the Obama people is to attempt to de-legimitize the opposition which can do no physical harm, but which they construe as one which impedes their idea of progress. Rather than compete in the open marketplace of ideas, they wish to control the marketplace by REMOVING THE OPPOSITION CASE AND IT'S SUPPORTERS WITHOUT DEBATE. They believe that the result will find the market GRATEFUL in the ultimate moment. This is fundamentally anti democratic, and illiberal in nature. It is strictly a moral good is in the final success philosophy, which in turn, thus has no immovable base to it's guiding idea ..EXCEPT POLITICAL SUCCESS, even if ephemeral.
In this case the siren of an unachievable middle east peace, reduced to the ridiculous idea of getting rid of the ELECTED GOVT OF AN ALLY, in order to BEGIN talks about BEGINNING TALKS with a govt whose leader thinks the Holocaust was a farce except for those the Zionists themselves arranged to have killed, and presents himself as the leader of HALF the nation which will not exert sovereign authority over the other half (Gaza), represents the goal of moral good, i.e., political success today.

These people are not fit to run a small business. Or a county. Or a state. They are only fit to tear down and demand change for what they regard as UNJUST ORDER.

"There seems to be a general belief in the circle around the president that the democratically-elected government in Israel is drunk at the wheel," Steven Rosen, a pro-Israeli lobbyist now with the Middle East Forum, said. "They clearly will use pressure tactics to bring Israel around."

In April 2010, former U.S. ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk began a series of attacks on Netanyahu in the Israeli media. Indyk, a former assistant secretary of state under then-President Bill Clinton, has called for the toppling of Netanyahu while his right-wing partners accept a more pliant prime minister.

"Indyk was sent by Obama and encouraged by his American Jewish supporters, particularly [former Rep.] Robert Wexler, to do this," the source said.

If Rahm is his father's son, is it any wonder he wants to be Mayor of Chicago and not involved in this weather underground of a govt?
