Glass feelings - So fragile

This article is from the Jerusalem Post: J'lem worried over Biden's Iran stance.

Full psychopathic drama on display...
Security officials expressed concern Monday over statements reportedly made by US Democratic vice presidential candidate Joseph Biden regarding Iran's nuclear program. Army Radio reported that the Delaware senator was heard saying in closed conversations with Jerusalem officials three years ago that he was firmly opposed to an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities.

GASP! Can you believe someone said they once heard Biden say that, like, three years ago! Outrageous.

Biden, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, reportedly claimed that Israel would likely have to come to terms with a nuclear Iran. He reportedly expressed doubt over the effectiveness of economic sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic and said he was against the opening of an additional military and diplomatic front, saying that the US had more pressing problems, such as North Korea and Iraq.
Can you believe the nerve of that man!?!?!?! Who gives a crap about the US's "pressing problems"??? Why would he even bring that up?!
The Jerusalem Post could not confirm the report.
And your point is.....?
Biden has a solid 36-year Senate record of pro-Israel leadership. He has called Israel "the single greatest strength America has in the Middle East" and declared himself a Zionist in an interview with a US Jewish television channel last year, saying that "you don't have to be a Jew to be a Zionist."
That doesn't mean anything. He's lying.
Army Radio said that Jerusalem officials expressed amazement at the comments and were wondering which position to take seriously, that of Biden or Obama, who declared last Monday that the world must press Iran through sanctions and diplomacy to stop its nuclear program, so that Israel does not feel its "back is against the wall" and that it therefore has no choice but to attack.

The State of Israel has feelings, you know, which is a truly remarkable thing, and if these feelings are not treated with the utmost care, Israel will have no choice to do something really quite crazy, out of despair and self-defense of course, considering that we are absolutely sick with worry and you clearly don't care, and so it will be all your fault. Since now we know that Biden once allegedly said something that contradicts what Obama says now, we now have no choice but to wonder which man to take seriously. Obviously, we can no longer take them both seriously. This one mistake is all it takes to wreck our trust, which is a fragile, precious gift. You have rejected our beautiful gift of trust and friendship. This is going to affect your presidential race, because Obama can no longer be trusted (as we've suspected and which has now been confirmed -- Aha!), and we will tell all our media people to step on the scales for McCain/Palin with both feet. And we have media people everywhere, as we're sure you don't need to be reminded.

The officials said that they had believed Biden's nomination would give a feeling of security to the Israeli government, which was concerned that the US would give Israel the cold shoulder regarding the Iranian threat following the end of the Bush Administration's term.

(Sniff.) This is so disappointing. Here we were, so hopeful that we could continue our beautiful, special friendship with a Democratic administration. But now (sniff) it's clear that this is not to be.

Nevertheless, reports of Biden's comments have now cast doubt over this sentiment and officials said that "this feeling of security has been undermined."

(Filling many tissues.) We're not angry, just really, really hurt.

"The position of the vice presidential candidate puts a huge question mark over the degree of empathy the Obama administration would display concerning one of the greatest threats Israel faces," they said.

It would be so hard to trust you after this terrible breach. It's like a beautiful teacup has been smashed on the ground. I suppose we could glue it back together, somehow, but it would never be as strong. The cracks would always remind us of your terrible betrayal. We are so very, very vulnerable; and all you can think of is yourself.

(Sadly honking many boogers into tissues.)

UPDATE: It works again!! (That's why they keep doing it.) Biden forced to release a statement denying ever putting US interests ahead of Israel's elusive 'security.'

Israel: The Most Insecure Place on Earth.
