Israeli politicians should be judicious in the language they use about President Obama. Calling Obama an "enemy of the Jews" may play well in Likud circles in Israel, but it undermines political support for Israel in Washington, DC. This name calling makes Likud politicians seem like unreasonable hotheads in the view of powerful Americans who are sympathetic to Israel. Obama has filled some of the most important White House staff positions with Jews: Rahm Emmanuel, David Axelrod, and Larry Summers. There is no evidence whatsoever that Obama is an "enemy of the Jews." Rather, Obama shares the views of left-wing Zionists in believing that it is in Israel's own interest to agree to a two-state solution and to withdraw from Jewish settlements that are in areas heavily populated by hostile Palestinians. Likudniks are free to disagree with Obama on this issue, but they should do so in a way that does not alienate Americans who are fundamentally on Israel's side.
