    Israelis have a keen interest in the American president. The make determinations before each election as to who would be the "Best president" for Israel. They keep lists of who has been the best presidents for Israel in the past. We see articles on the American president every single day in the Israeli press. Israelis obviously feel a little ownership over the American president and the American elections. The reasons for this are also obvious. America provides much critical support for Israel of all kinds. Israelis feel the same about this support as retired Americans feel about their social security check. (1) It is not enough. (2) It should never be a political football. (3) It should never even be discussed except to raise it Obama never broke any of these rules (yet), but he did something worse. He asked for something from Israel. This is not something that American presidents should do. Some Israelis will never, ever, forgive him, no matter how much he raises their allowance or tries to make amends. Personally, I am waiting for the time when he breaks the rules I mentioned earlier. If he does that he will lose popularity with the rest of the Israelis, but he will gain popularity in America. That's what I call a good trade.
