Is America Sending Wrong Signal?

The Israeli government may take the FAA suspending of US flights to Tel Aviv (after a Hamas rocket landed nearby) as a signal of waning US support. European countries did not suspend flights.

If Netanyahu interprets the FAA’s action as politically motivated (and what isn’t in today’s America), he may increase—not decrease—the range and scope of IDF attack on Hamas. They may seek a “knock out” blow before America tightens the screws further.

Such an interpretation and such an action may have serious repercussions. Do you think Washington and Jerusalem are on the same sheet of music? I don’t either.
