You state "Obama decided his moderate Middle East coalition is more important than Netanyahu's extremist one." Wrong... there is nothing moderate about Obama. Many Americans were shocked over the excessive response by the Obama administration, to an announcement of what basically amounted to the building of condos 3 years from now, in a Jewish neighborhood. Many were further shocked that he would continue to antagonize a nation we consider an ally. While the press may be reporting that he embarrassed America with the poor timing of the announcement, that is overrated. It would have passed through our news cycle with barely a blip if Clinton, Axlerod, Biden and Obama himself, had not created a media firestorm. American's have wised up to the fact that Obama will use any situation to create a crisis to influence his personal objectives and policies. As a senator he made his lack of respect and support for Israel very clear. Nothing has changed since he has become President.
