Israel Criticizes U.S.“Weakness” on Ukraine, Syria
Says U.S. is world’s policeman despite widespread opposition to role by Americans
March 19, 2014
Israel’s defense minister, Moshe Ya’alon, used the State Department orchestrated unraveling of Ukraine and the failure of the United States to confront Russia militarily to criticize the “weakness” of the Obama administration. He said because the U.S. has not pursued the role of world policeman more aggressively it is inviting terrorism.
Israel's defense minister, Moshe Ya'alon: "Nobody will replace the United States as global policeman. I hope the United States comes to its senses."
Israel’s defense minister, Moshe Ya’alon:“Nobody will replace the United States as global policeman. I hope the United States comes to its senses.”
“If you sit and wait at home, the terrorism will come again,” Ya’alon said during a speech at Tel Aviv University.“This is a war of civilizations. If your image is feebleness, it doesn’t pay in the world. Nobody will replace the United States as global policeman. I hope the United States comes to its senses. If it doesn’t, it will challenge the world order, and the United States is the one that will suffer.”
“We were shocked by Moshe Ya’alon’s comments, which seriously call into question his commitment to Israel’s relationship with the United States,” an unnamed U.S. official told the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz.“This is part of a disturbing pattern in which the defense minister disparages the US administration, and insults its most senior officials. Given the unprecedented commitment that this administration has made to Israel’s security, we are mystified why the defense minister seems intent on undermining the relationship.”

Israel is just stating the obvious. America is weak because Obama wants it to be this way. He gets away with it because there's too much apathy.
