In summary, the titular article speaks about the Obama administration's relationship with Israel...and it's not a good one. The author claims that America has been a "fair weather ally" that is selling Israel out in an attempt to woo unreceptive Arab nations. Mr. Greif lists what he perceives to be Obama's mistakes, and why the president should change his ways on this topic. He concludes with a doom-and-gloom prophecy that America will isolate Israel, which will cause Israel to fall, which will move America up to be the Number 1 enemy of terrorists. It makes sense, but I think his words might be a tad melodramatic.
Naturally, the HuffPost crowd marched out the angry words, both directed at Mr. Greif and at Israel. Remember, this is a fully moderated thread. Let's start with attacks on Mr. Greif, including this one, the most hateful comment of the thread:
"1) I don't think this is the right time for an "Investment Banker" to be telling ANYONE how to run their country.
2) I am tired of the AIPAC charter members being allowed to post jingoistic editorials on this site. Don't they have their own website to do this on?
3) Most Americans would say, if you love Israel so much why don't you MOVE THERE and let us get on with trying to repair the damage to our economy you helped create? (see No. 1)" [Responses include "Bravo!" and "Well said!"]

"Article not worth a penny... too many innuendos!"
Have you ever been to NY, Miami or LA? Jewish people aren't going anywhere anytime soon. Nor is Isreal without their continually expanding borders. Sheer nonsense." [Not so much anti-Semitic as just really strange]
