Freedom Falafel

Yeah so maybe
the US and Israel
aren't besties anymore

but as is his way
even though fifty Democrats
skipped Netanyahu's speech altogether

Obama was gracious
threw only the slightest of shades

and gave the biggest understatement
so far in 2015.

"I think it's important to realize the depth of
the US-Israeli relationship."

"The military and intelligence cooperation is unprecedented.
That bond is unbreakable."

"When George W. Bush
initiated the war in Iraq

if they had invited
let's say the President of France

to appear before Congress to criticize
or to air those disagreements

I think most people would say
'Well that wouldn't be the right thing to do.'"
