Here’s a quote from a briefing delivered last week by Assistant Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs Esther Brimmer to American Jewish Committee of Greater Miami and Broward.
One constant we continue to hear from Israeli counterparts is how much they appreciate the Administration’s efforts and U.S.-Israeli cooperation at the UN and multilaterally, and how problematic it would be if the United States was not in these bodies to defend Israel.
Brimmer goes through an exhaustive list of things the Obama administration has done for Israel over the past several years, and if you look at the whole picture, you cannot but think that if it weren’t for the support of the US administration, Israel would be in deep, deep poo.
Worth a read. Quite remarkeable really just how dependent Israel is on the US for its diplomatic cover.
