In Gilbert Kahn’s Nov. 12 column “Can friends handle the truth?” he bends over backwards as an apologist for the Democrats’ and Obama administration’s very lukewarm support of Israel as somehow being, in part, Israel’s fault. This, in spite of the continuous open criticism of Israel and Netanyahu at every chance they get. Just as the Obama administration cannot utter the words “radical Islamists,” so, too, can it never criticize the Palestinians for any of their obvious faults.
This is not “truth between friends.” It is a long, deliberate campaign to distance America from Israel, and is not the same as previous disagreements, when America still stood by Israel (and other allies) completely and solidly.
