he (and most probably advisor Emanuel) picked a fight over a fundamental issue that most Israelis/Jews agree - sovereignty over Jerusalem. Attempting to intimidate the PM into submission with threats and an obvious unprecedented ice cold backdoor White House reception to a supposed ally, BHO has not only strengthened the PM but has cast doubt on any U.S. commitments to Israel. BHO has singlehandedly damaged U.S. foreign policy. Alienating Israel and leaving a more popular PM/Israeli government with that age old isolated outlook, makes a sole Israeli strike on Iran ever more probable. But more importantly, the possibility of peace becomes more remote as Arabs are encouraged to hold out from sitting with Israel in face to face negotiations as they undoubtedly expect more to be squeezed out of Israel.
