    The real problem was that his muslim outreach was partly predicated on abusing israel to win over muslims for his foreign policy initiatives... and israelis are supposed to like that? obama picked a fight with bibi to effect his own selfish and naive foreign policy strategy which was bound to fail in many ways, and it has. whose plan was that anyhow? obama's? samantha power? brzezhinski? malley? all of them are overtly anti israel ...and obama chose them for his team and for advice...so whose fault is that? bibi's? the media has done a horrible job covering this....why? because they are so far up obama tucchus that they cannot report on this objectively...they'd be out of jobs, and fast. and by the way, neither reagan nor bush were right next door in egypt, turkey or saudi which would have made a stopover so simple and strategically wise. no, obama didnt stop in for a reason, and it was purely ideologically driven...he just doesnt like israel very much...the only reason he went as a senator was to play the game....
