Can you say "third rail"?
But IMO American leaders will increasingly be willing to have policy variance with Israel
It will not happen quickly
Until it does
Right now it is happening with response to the unified Palestine government. Which the whole world sees as a positive and necessary development. I mean clearly no settlement of issues is possible with divided leadership.
No Israel is continuing to expand settlement in the West Bank. IMO opinion this is increasingly creating a de facto apartheid or annexation. Israel thinks of these areas as part of Israel. But what becomes of the existing residents what is their status in the state of Israel. The direction has an implacably inevitable trend. And the end game seems unconcienable to American sensibilities never mind world opinion
It just seems to me that a train wreck is in the distance
