At long last, Netanyahu paid proper respect to POTUS and all Americans, and, reminded everyone of current and historical, world-wide and Middle East, political reality. This should have been his thrust all along. He's likely listening, at long, long last, [excuse repeated phrase] to other and wiser voices and advisers.

It should NEVER have happened in the first place. Jeanne Korsh
