Now Obama is this the way to trat an ally and friend? The truth is Obama does not like Israel ,and sees the relationship as a burden .-Joshua I have news for you Joshua, Israel is not a friend and if you judge an ally by it being there with you in your fights, Desert Storm, Afghanistan and Gulf war II show that Israel is not an ally. It never has been. We have had Muslim friends and allies in those conflicts. It is not a matter of whether Obama likes Israel or not. Obama is doing what is in Americas interests, not Israels. That is what he should do as an American President. And, yes Israel is a burden to America. It has cost 200 billion so far and still rising. Israel is a financial and political liability to America. Its 40 year occupation of the Palestinians, land expropriations, and removal of Palestinians from those lands make Israel a moral embarrassment and liability as well.
