You Really Can't Make This Stuff Up

The headline says it all: "Peled Proposes Israeli Sanctions on US".

Is he serious? Has he forgotten the two billion plus Israel gets annually from the US?

I don't think I need to comment here. Make up your own reactions, unless you are so paralyzed by the threat of Israeli sanctions against the US that you can't carry on at all.

And the punch line, of course, is the fact that the Jerusalem Post article notes that Peled is considered to be part of the left wing of the Likud.
