Yesterday Prof Jacobson rightly assessed Jeffrey Goldberg’s The Crisis in U.S.-Israel Relations Is Officially Here as describing a crisis “in Obama-Israel relations.”

Although the White House has offered a disavowal of the profane insult made by one of Goldberg’s sources, the full substance of his remarks needs to be rebutted.

Remember when President Barack Obama said that the United States will “always have Israel’s back” when it comes to Israel’s security—especially in regards to Iran’s nuclear program?

Or when Secretary of State John Kerry said that with Iran “no deal was better than a bad deal?”

They were lying.

As if the situation in Ferguson, Missouri wasn’t bad enough, Code Pink has decided to join the riots and protests.

Code Pink infamously dressed as vaginas and paraded around the RNC in 2012. They also protested the maker of my favorite body wash, Ahava, (made in Israel), because it contains “occupied mud.”

The speech takes place against the backdrop of a libelous speech by Mahmoud Abbas that even a left-leaning Haaretz columnist noted “more or less buried the peace process.”

Here are highlights — full video is embedded at bottom of post:
