Andrew Sullivan on what the US must do if Israel continues its extremist policies in the Middle East:

My default position if Israel, as a sovereign state, continues to
occupy the West Bank, collectively punish the people of Gaza, threaten
to attack Iran, kill unarmed civilians and take out terror suspects
using the passports of alleged allies? Disengage entirely. The US should
not be held responsible for a situation over which the US president has
no real power.
