Eldar, like much of official Israel, believes anything he reads in the mainstream American media as a given truth. Then, he imitates it, and asks questions which the actual answers do not support. Like the U.S. mainstream media, the Israeli media assumes that the public opinion in Israel has certain opinions even if the facts do not support those opinions. Obama tried to put pressure on Israel to freeze settlement construction but had to surrender to Israeli dictates. The bottom line is that Obama's administration is no less "pro-Israel" than any administration other than the most recent Bush, even if the tone of their policy pronouncements sound and are more even-handed.
