J-Street never asked the US to pressure Israel, they ask Obama to put pressure on Netanyahu. Don't forget that Netanyahu and his fellows are looking for political support in the Congress. Thus, they are trying to marginalize Obama. Does it mean that the Republicans who support him are anti-American? Isi Leibler is not capable yet of distinguishing between supporting the Likud and supporting Israel. It's very sad. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and some people have reflexes inherited from the rest of the region I guess. Israel doesn't need a Rais but a strong parliament and a strong opposition as well.
