Israel and United States have shared an economic and military alliance for a long time. The very alliance has been a sour point with many countries, especially Muslim ones. US has also quite openly defended Israel’s right to attack Gaza in the ongoing conflict. However, USA has always defended itself for being unbiased and not giving Israel any undue favors.
This video though, has put the US-Israel relations in another light altogether! Apparently, not knowing that his words were being recorded, Netanyahu, while speaking to terror victims said, "I know what America is." "America is a thing you can move very easily, move it in the right direction. They won't get in their way."
Netanyahu also bragged about how he undercut the peace process when he was the prime minister during the Clinton administration. "They asked me before the election if I'd honor the Oslo Accords," he said.
"I said I would, but ... I'm going to interpret the accords in such a way that would allow me to put an end to this galloping forward to the '67 borders. How did we do it? Nobody said what defined military zones were.
Defined military zones are security zones; as far as I'm concerned, the entire Jordan Valley is a defined military zone. Go argue."
Although the video is old, Netanyahu’s recent actions in Gaza and intrusion in the US elections prove that he still believes these ideas. And US, despite knowing all this is ready to embrace Israel and turn a blind eye towards its atrocious acts.
