U.S. Israeli-relations hit a new low after a series of actions taken by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the lead up to his successful re-election campaign. The Israeli leader’s breach of protocol in not informing the White House about the Republican party’s invitation to address a joint session of Congress in early March was followed by the speech itself where he called on members of Congress to reject any agreement that President Obama may secure in international talks with Iran over its nuclear program.
Netanyahu’s meddling in U.S. domestic politics caused a major backlash that was later eclipsed by his controversial statements in Israel just before his nation’s March 17 parliamentary elections. Concerned about slipping poll numbers Netanyahu appealed to his right-wing base by stating he would reject the establishment of an independent Palestinian state as long as he was prime minister, upending a cornerstone of U.S-Israel policy for decades. He further inflamed tensions with the Obama administration and much of the world when on election eve he expressed alarm that Arab-Israeli citizens were "being bused to the polling stations in droves" by left-wing organizations. The latest friction point came a week after the election when the Wall Street Journal published a story that claimed Netanyahu’s government had spied on international negotiations with Iran, then leaked that information to U.S. legislators in order to undermine a future nuclear deal.
Between The Lines’ Scott Harris spoke with Josh Ruebner, policy director with the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, who talks about the need for a new U.S. relationship with Israel in view of Netanyahu's repudiation of the two-state solution.
Josh Ruebner is author of the book titled, "Shattered Hopes: The Failure of Obama's Middle East Peace Process." For more information the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, visit endtheoccupation.org.
