    Why don't Israelis trust President Obama? 1) Israel is the only country in the world he has put heavy pressure on to do anything. 2) In his famous Cairo speech he gave Rashed Khalidi's version of the history of the state of Israel. He showed no understanding whatsoever of the Biblical connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel. 3) He in his last meeting with the Israeli Prime Minister engaged in a little humiliation and put - down game. Not fitting and proper relation to a true ally. 4) With all the promises of sanctions and all the diplomatic activity everyone who has any knowledge of the subject knows that Iran will only be stopped from attaining a nuclear capability by 1) Regime Change or 2) Military operations. Obama has not really encouraged the dissidents, and he is very unlikely to engage in a military operation. He seems to think the Taliban are more important. 4) He is a cold character but absolutely icy when it comes to Israel.
