If Oren is trying to blame Obama personally for the change in US-Israel relations, he is doing no favor to Israel. The US does not feel a sense of blame about the Holocaust since it did not participate in it. On the contrary, the US feels great pride in saving the world from Nazism. The positive feeling in the US toward Israel is based on common ideals and of course some Jewish influence on the Congress. But never before did Israel act AGAINST perceived US interests. The US and the West are threatened by radical Islam, and a major battle cry of the Islamists is the Palestinian situation. Israel must help the US in removing this problem so that it is not used to recruit more terrorists. Instead, Israel ignores the Arab initiative for peace, and Netanyahu makes every effort to continue the occupation and undermine the peace talks with Abbas. The tectonic shift, or just crisis, is the fault of our ideologically-run Israeli government.
