    The UK has an election in a couple of months and that won't generate a tenth of the posts Israels have even though nominally we are supposed to be your closest ally

    Whats really going on here ?
    The Obama administration tried to gets this man defeated which is why it is news today.

    Short sighted is an understatement.

    I am hearing far too much "so what? What have they ever done for us?" in mentioning any disagreement. It is very stupid, even here where we love Americans there is a growing attitude of "OK, if they don't want CANADIAN oil on their land, we don't want THEIR oil on our land" a natural consequence of Obama's "**** 'em" strategy on Keystone. And that is playing very heavily in the oil patch in Alberta, BC and Saskatchewan where the reigning Conservatives will have to hold off a resurgent Liberal Party in a federal election as early as this spring, definitely this fall.

    And you will need to know, all elections in Canada revolve around a certain level of anti-American politics.

    And when I hear that kind of "they never did anything for us" backlash I recall 911 and the thousands of stranded American travelers who were given free room and board until American airspace was safe once again. I fear the day when terrorists again strike the US, and because of Obama's divisive politics the world reacts with "good luck with that....we never did anything you appreciated anyway"

    Frankly I thought maybe Netanyahu wasn't going to win. But then the average Israeli probably looks at him differently.
    It'll be interesting, I suppose. There will be no peace between Palestine and Israel with him in charge. He’s done the Hamas “We won’t recognize an independent State” route. So long as those two sides will not acknowledge the right to exist of the other, there will be no solution. So it just seems like more war for the foreseeable future. Glad nothing is changing in several decades. Oh wait…not really.

    Having close and successful allies is hugely important, Obama has pissed them away for his personal political benefit-he simply does not care about the repercussions, he will be gone by that time after all.

    We spend a lot of money on Israel, and they tie us into war and intervention a lot. Normally we shouldn't have any real interest, but since we're so entangled with them and their policies, we do.

    Honestly, we should just let them be. End all foreign aid to them, be on friendly terms but not let them dictate our actions in the ME.

    You will have to ask Obama why he had to intervene.

    The US has bankrolled this country for decades before Obama.

    Good afternoon old chap. I do hope you are faring well.

    Yes, they were commitments made prior, however, the fact of the matter is that while there is antagonism between Obama and Netanyahu on a personal level, the relationship between Israel and the US has not changed in the slightest. The US will still continue to give diplomatic, military, intelligence, and economic support to Israel. So, I don't get as to why so many people are saying that Obama has drastically changed the US relationship with Israel.

    I see, that additional info excuses his lies, paranoia, fear mongering, racism and releases him from his commitment to a two state solution. Apparently enough, gullible or worse Israelis bought it.
