Andrew Sullivan: US Must Use Leverage Over Israel

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.
