Leaked memo on Israel-U.S. relations

Via Open Source Geopolitics (citing an AP report):
A memo by the Israeli consul in Boston, criticizing the Netanyahu government's settlements policy and approach to relations with Washington, was leaked to an Israeli TV station, which read part of it on the air. The memo apparently contains, among other things, a line saying that American Jews are being put in a "problematical position" by the tense relations between the two governments. Without having data to hand on this, I suspect that a great many American Jews disapprove of the Netanyahu govt's settlements stance and would feel "distanced" from that government whether it was openly spatting with the White House or not.
