Jeffrey Goldberg is the gatekeeper of the American discourse on Israel. But somebody's getting under his skin-- Andrew Sullivan.
Iran or the settlements? These are the two competing narratives, and Sully is in the way.
As far as Israel and the lobby are concerned, this is simply the wrong time to be thinking about the settlements. They had been successfully pushed off the mainstage of American mainstream discourse along with the Palestinians-- unless you say, They're invented. There's no room for them in this election cycle. None, finito, no room whatsoever.
