Israel’s new Gaza honeymoon with Obama (and why it may not last very long)
The U.S. President’s unflinching support for the Gaza operation and his role in the success of Iron Dome have restored much of his long lost credit with both Israelis and American Jews.
Even though there are no new public opinion polls to rely on, it’s probably safe to assume that 1. President Obama’s popularity in Israel is skyrocketing; 2. Most American Jews are more than satisfied with his response to the conflict in Gaza; 3. Die-hard Republicans are having a hard time explaining the giant gap between their dire campaign warnings and Obama’s attitude towards Israel thus far.
