The "Economist": US must reduce aid to Israel

(with a hat-tip to the "Mondoweiss" site, which I highly recommend for regular visitation). The Economist is no one's idea of a partisan lefty-liberal rag. Their view: that if the Netanyahu-Lieberman government won't sign on to work honestly toward a two-state solution, then the US needs to cut aid to Israel. And they also encourage the US (via George Mitchell's special ambassorship) to sit down with Hamas in hopes of some reconciliation with Mahmoud Abbas and Fatah.

I might also humbly add another recommendation: that if Netanyahu comes to Obama with a deal that he'll sign on for a Palestinian state in return for US support for an Israeli air-strike on Iran, President Obama say "absolutely, positively, unequivocally, no" - and make it plain that if Netanyahu proceeds along those lines, that US aid and diplomatic cover for Israel will cease immediately, and completely.
