Obama Rekindles Relationship with Netanyahu to Limit Damage to Democrats

Friday, April 24, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- President Barack Obama is making overtures to repair his long-strained relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but the efforts have more to do with currying favor with pro-Israel members of Congress and American Jews than with the Jewish State, according to The New York Times.

"The White House is engaged in an aggressive effort to assuage the concerns of American Jewish groups and pro-Israel members of Congress over the nuclear agreement with Iran, and to limit the potential political fallout for Democrats of what has become a bitter rift in the American and Israeli relationship," according to the Times.

The Obama administration "is nothing if not pragmatic, and the issue on the table now is creating conditions for a reasonable outcome should the Iran agreement be reached," former U.S. Ambassador to Israel and Egypt and Princeton professor Daniel C. Kurtzer told the newspaper.

"There was a moment in the midst of this where you wonder if anger was replacing policy, but they came to their senses and said, 'O.K., anger is not a policy, now we've made our point, it's time to move on,'" he said. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.newsmax.com/World/GlobalTalk/US-Israel-relations-Barack-Obama/2015/04/23/id/640301/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]

  1. You know those silly pictures where a person challenges: "Caption this!"?
    That's what is going through my head right now.

  2. Obama hates jews and he gets all his information from JImmy Carter who also antisemitic. His Carter Center is just an Arab Institute is a front for the most radical jew haters in the USA. Their financial support of the some of the most violent groups in the middle east prove there antisemitism. Saudi Arabia's King Fahd made several large donations. Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, had given at least $5 million. I am ashamed that Carter claims to be a part my my faith, although I heard he was going join ISIS soon :-).
