    Obama would have used the veto in the security council to stop the Palestinians getting a state, he has kept Israel supplied militarily and paid for iron dome, during his term in office Netanyahu has not felt under any pressure to stop expanding the occupation. If this is what happens when POTUS is apparently an enemy, what do you expect from a friend? Maybe in fact the fault lies not so much with Obama but with those who expect that when Israels says 'jump' it should always be met with the response 'how high'. If the West changes its approach towards Israel one of the benefits might be that those who believe that Israel should always get unconditional support from its allies, will have to face a different reality.
