The Ha’aretz report is essentially correct as to the Israeli election results. Special attention should be paid, however, to the last paragraph and the astonishing Clapper report. The Obama administration has now gone all the way in its Iranophilia. The Clapper report also whitewashes Hezbollah, saying it is an element of stability in Lebanon along with the Lebanese army! The Administration is living in world of its own construction, not the real one, which is extremely dangerous for the future of the Middle East and the world in general. With almost two years to go, there is no telling the damage that can be done. What is clear is that relations with Israel and with the Congress will continue to deteriorate, and at a faster rate with this kind of “analysis”.
