Bradley Burston reporting on Tom Friedman’s appearance on the Israeli equivalent of Meet the Press a couple weeks back:

“Israel doesn’t have to worry about me,” Friedman had stressed early in the interview. “At the end of the day, Israel will have my support – it had me at hello.”

But many Americans, Friedman continued “just are fed up with this conflict, and over time, that will become a national security problem for Israel, given the fact that the United States is your only friend.”
