Disgrace: Panetta Swears at Israel

In Iran, Ahmadinejad has been threatening to wipe Israel 'off the map' for years; we have done next to nothing to prevent it. In Egypt, the Obama administration's policy was to remove Hosni Mubarak. The Muslim Brotherhood has filled the vacuum and the populace is threatening to march on Israel; we have done next to nothing to prevent it. In Libya, the Obama administration facilitated the fall of Gadhafi. The Muslim Brotherhood is filling the vacuum while flying al-Qaeda flags from the courthouses; we have done next to nothing to prevent it. Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas is now claiming to have forged a new partnership with Hamas, which wants to destroy Israel.

In response to all of this, Obama's new Defense Secretary has allegedly told Israel to 'get to the damn table.'

Via VOA:
The top U.S. defense official is warning Israel it cannot afford to further isolate itself from Arab neighbors in the Middle East. 
During a forum in Washington late Friday, U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Israel needs to start by getting back “to the damn table” and negotiating peace with the Palestinians. He also called on Israel to mend its fraying relationships with traditional partners like Turkey, Egypt and Jordan. 
Some Israeli leaders have viewed the Arab Spring, and uprisings like the one that toppled long-time Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, as a threat to regional stability as well as to Israel's security. But Panetta urged Israeli officials to reject that way of thinking. 
Panetta said Israel has no choice but to take some risks to ensure a safer future, starting with resuming peace talks with the Palestinians, a process that Panetta said has “effectively been put on hold.” 
The U.S. defense secretary said the U.S. continues to be committed to safeguarding Israel's security but that “Israel too, has a responsibility” to build regional support through “strong diplomacy.”
Not sure about you but this kinda reminds me of Genesis 12:3
3 I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
For those who haven't noticed, the country Panetta represents is going through a bit of a rough patch these days.
