Netanyahu was humiliated...by his own constituents.

Reader comment on item: When Israel Stood Up to Washington [in 1981]
in response to reader comment: Begin: a Mixed Bag

Was the timing of the announcement of the construction of 1500 (!) new housing units in East Jerusalem during the visit of the Vice President of the United States just a coincidence? No way! It was an out-of-control settler movement showing Netanyahu who is really the boss in Israel. That, to my view, was the REAL humiliation. Begin never would have stood for it.
