You cannot do it

You cannot make this shit up, unless, of course, you are a columnist for the NYT unless, in fact, you are Thomas Friedman.
The failed attempt by the U.S. to bribe Israel with a $3 billion security assistance package, diplomatic cover and advanced F-35 fighter aircraft — if Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu. would simply agree to a 90-day settlements freeze to resume talks with the Palestinians — has been enormously clarifying. It demonstrates just how disconnected from reality both the Israeli and the Palestinian leaderships have become.
The column is titled "Reality Check".


In that simple bewildering paragraph, you Tom, talk about the attempted US bribe of $3bn for a freeze of Israeli settlements for 90 days, spit on by the Israelis, and it shows how disconnected from reality the Palestinian leadership has become? How should they connect to reality? How should you, Tom?

That paragraph sums up the Tom Friedman, and the NYT, forever. Reality check, indeed.
