    Incredible arrogance.,and absolute stupidity . Israel will certainly get used by the right wingers in the USA whom never accept any Democrat administration. In the end, Obama did not need the Jewish vote to win in 2013, as there are millions in other minority whom came out of the woodwork to support him. That exercise showed that American Presidents do not need Jewish money or votes to get elected. Obama is determined to normalise the situation in the ME, no easy task, given the myriad of agendas of many of the belligerents in that area. clearly he sees the continuing repression of the Palestinians as plain unfair, as do the vast majorities of the populations in Europe, UK, Australia, and Canada. Israel has squandered massive international goodwill. No doubt it will become increasingly paranoid about this, and the old chestnut about anti Semtism. It is Israel's political attitudes that are the problem ,and it is not religion, except in so far as Israel intrinsically does not separate religion from state. Ironically, it will possibly be the Iranians whom break that nexus before the Israeli's
