As usual the Arab establishment manages to engage in all kinds of self-deception, mis-analysis, and just plane juvenile journalism. This grossly simplified and sadly misleading analysis from Albawaba headquartered in Jordan.
Report: US officials blast Sharon government policies in occupied territories
Ties between Washington and Israel were approaching a crisis due to the policy of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's government, Israeli army radio Monday quoted senior US officials.
According to the sources, Sharon is not evacuating "unauthorized settler outposts" in the West Bank, is expanding settlements and is continuing with construction of the so-called "separation fence" along a route that is not logical.
Furthermore, the Israeli Premier isn't acting as a "friend," isn't keeping promises and is ignoring the Bush administration's difficult situation in Iraq and the criticism of the president, they added.
Moreover, Sharon is ignoring a series of messages and
expression of administration officials, including the publicly stated support of the Geneva Accord, the radio report added.
On its part, commenting on this report, the U.S. embassy in Israel said that there is no crisis in U.S.-Israel relations. (Albawaba.com)
