Well Done, Bibi

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu addressed Israel's position on Egypt today after a joint cabinet meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. His major points, all roughly aligned with US policy, were:

1. Ensuring the preservation of Israeli-Egyptian peace
2. Support for liberal democratic rights
3. Peaceful resolution to the crisis such that stability is restored

Bibi walks a fine line here, making nuanced statements and addressing the myriad audiences who will be picking apart his every word. The statement is pretty much an A+.
