Simon Tisdall claims
that Israel's leadership is panicking over a perceived Obama 'tilt' toward Israel's 'historic Arab foes'. This 'tilt' manifests itself in meetings with the dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak (second largest recipient of US aid in the region), the Saudi monarch, and Mahmoud Abbas. I don't know if this could be any more laughable. All of these individuals are dependent on the United States, all are among the most pro-Israeli politicians in the Middle East, and all three were regularly met by Bush administration officials. Where's the 'tilt'?
