Hillary dissed by the mayor of Jerusalem (update)

As reported in Friday's WaPo. This, ladies and gents, is a test for the Obama State Department. How to respond when the mayor of Jerusalem refers to the comments of the US Secretary of State as "a lot of air." The mayor, by the way, is a former paratrooper in the IDF. The Sec of State, of course, is also the wife of a US president who was quite popular among both Israelis and Palestinians.

And Haaretz reports that Avigdor Lieberman is demanding "full autonomy" as the foreign minister in a new Netanyahu regime.

And John Kerry today gave a speech at the Brookings Institute in which he stated that the US needs to recognize that its foreign-policy interests are not the same as Israel's.

Stay tuned . . .
