Double dog dare ya

Gideon Levy points out that Netanyahu's success in forming a right-wing coalition has put him in the possibly uncomfortable position of being able to carry out his stated goals. Or at least to try to.

Levy also thinks that Obama might not want to join Bibi and McCain in a refrain of bomb, bomb, Iran. But so far, Obama has not made any significant modifications to Bush's foreign policy, he continues to repeat the consensus that Iran has a nuclear weapons program, no matter what the NIE says, and he might think it to be political suicide to stand up to the Israelis. He's probably right about that.
