This seems to be a repitition of a meeting held in 2009 when President Obama also asked the Jewish leaders to convey soul-searching messages to Israel. What followed then was a chill in US-Israeli relations. Is this what we have to look forward to now? It should also be pointed out to Israeli readers that the Main Stream Media in the US virtually ignored this meeting. It's as if it never happened. Strange.
