    You've got to be kidding me. I have been so impressed with how Netanyahu has held his tongue and has NOT interfered with the US elections when, knowing how much of an enemy to the jewish people Obama has made himself to be, he could be saying SO much more. For comments Netanyahu has made, and which this author clearly ascertains are somehow purposed to be undermining towards Obama, I applaud for their non-partisan tact. Netanyahu has every right to be autonomous as the Prime MInister of Israel and not be puppet to anyone; he can defend Israel as he sees fit. If Obama wants Netanyahu to be more on his side, then maybe Obama should be more on his and stop interfering with ISRAEL politics. Let Israel be Israel. If Obama was truly a friend of Israel, he would step up to the plate and stop undermining the Israeli Prime MInister; he would show decisive support, not middle-ground ambiguity.
