To her credit, Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC this afternoon, reporting from Tel Aviv, spoke about what is motivating the world, the inhumane blockade of Gaza and the terrible conditions it has produced for Palestinians. She seemed upset by this three-year policy of collective punishment.
Mitchell then said that the U.S. has to help Israel get out of this "box" of bad opinion that flows from the blockade. She had on former ambassador Martin Indyk, who works for the Saban Center, funded by Haim Saban who cares about one issue, Israel, who said the blockade was just fine but world opinion was a problem. Oh to break free of the lobby for a moment.
