Israel’s simple dichotomous choice can be framed in a number of related ways: Pariah state or not? Apartheid or democracy? And as this opinion piece argues in Yediot Ahronot today: Obama or Wallerstein?
Dozens of countries, including some that used to be sympathetic to Israel, have spoken out against us recently and will continue to do so. A thousand phone calls by Netanyahu will not put out this fire.
Bibi, Barak, and their colleagues will apparently soon have to make a decision: Are they going with Barack Obama, Gordon Brown, Ban Ki-moon and others, or with settler leaders Pinchas Wallerstein and Danielle Weiss. We can’t have it both ways.
Indeed, Israel cannot have it both ways.
