I purposely address this letter the way that I do because it speaks so well to the cynical irony of your criticism. The very fact that someone who will remain nameless calls anyone a chickensh*t speaks for itself. The fact that you irresponsibly resort to name calling when expressing displeasure towards the political leader of one of America’s most loyal and important allies is another problem entirely.
Since you, someone without the intestinal fortitude to go publicly on record called out Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, let me tell you a little bit about this “chickensh*t”. This “chickensh*t” is of course a former member of Israeli Defense Forces. He was a team leader in Israel’s special forces unit. He fought in the War of Attrition against Egypt. He was part of a numerous missions including the mission to rescue hostages of a Sabena Airlines hijacking in 1972 during which he was shot in the shoulder. This “chickensh*t” studied at MIT and Harvard, neither of which necessarily makes you brave, but the point is that we know this about him while all we know about you is that you remain anonymous.
Whoever you are, and for all we know you might be a high-ranking official in the current administration, as long as you remain unnamed you are the actual chickensh*t. I know this administration is at odds with some of the policies of the current Israeli government and I, like so many other supporters of Israel are not happy with the disagreements taking place. Be that as it may, there is a professional and unprofessional way of doing things. I would not be considered a politician by any means, but I know enough to realize that calling an important friend a chickensh*t and being too much of a chickensh*t to reveal yourself is so far beyond unprofessional, especially coming from an administration official, it is downright scary.
So Anonymous, whoever you are, show some guts, tell us who you are and apologize to the Prime Minister of the only democracy in the Middle East. If you don’t, it is fairly clear and obvious who actually is the real chickensh*t.
