O poreclă perfectă: "Premierul Gaga"



Porecla o dă David Rothkopf şi îl vizează pe Netanyahu, cu trimitere la maniera comic-penibilă (dacă nu chiar coreeano-ceauşistă) în care i-a fost aplaudat discursul de sfidare a Biroului Oval, de către chiar aleşii ţării în fruntea căreia se află Sfidatul Obama.


Ca o sală arhiplină la un concert marca "Lady Gaga"... "The U.S. Congress whooped and hollered and leapt to their feet so often for Netanyahu that you expected at any moment they would surge forward and turn the well of the House into a mosh pit. And despite that and the fact that the theme song for the event could easily have been "Bad Romance," these not-so-little monsters were actually not going wild for a pop star but for a politician so out-of-touch with the moment and the views of even the majority in his own country that he might well be known as Prime Minister Gaga. "


David Rothkopf e orice altceva decât un liberal extrem. Specialist de calibru în relaţii internaţionale, fost director executiv la Kissinger Associates şi funcţionar în Administraţia Clinton, iar, actualmente, un apreciat consultant în problematica transformărilor globale, Rothkopf dispune de luciditatea pe care nu o găsim în armata de critici ai politicii Israelului.


Ceea ce-i permite să scrie că "While one hopes the prime minister enjoyed himself, he would be wise not to either read too much into the reaction or look for it to have any lasting consequence. Because yesterday's display of kabuki political theater was not about him ... or even about Israel.


The speech was about Obama. It was arranged by Republicans for purely domestic political reasons and when Republicans cheered it was to say to evangelical Christian and Jewish supporters of Israel, "See, we love you the most." And when Democrats stood up, it was to say, "The president didn't mean any harm with that remark about the 1967 borders." Their applause couldn't possibly have had anything to do with America's long-term interests in a peaceful, sustainable, two-state solution or they would have been sitting on their hands the whole time.


Because Netanyahu continues to mistake intransigence for strength in a situation in which old formulations actually put Israel at much greater risk."


Dincolo de motivaţia despre care Rothkopf crede că a inspirat reacţia de simpatie supra-exagerată a celor din Congresul american, eu cred că a fost foarte prezentă teama congressmenilor şi senatorilor de a nu fi notaţi cu "minus" de reprezentanţii AIPAC aflaţi în tribună, în caz că n-ar fi aplaudat disciplinat ori de câte ori Premierul Gaga rostea extrase din dogmele unei politici ce s-a născut pe 14 mai 1948... Scrie aici de ce http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Israel_Public_Affairs_Committee#Aims_and_activities

Pentru AIPAC, distincţia operată de Rothkopf, între putere şi intransigenţă, chiar nu are importanţă...
