Don’t write off Obama – Israel Opinion, Ynetnews

Israel completely depends on the United States, and a weak president is not a good thing – it’s not good for Israel, it’s not good for the Jews, and it’s not good for America. However, there is something here that is even more important: Obama is not that weak.

President Obama is not a lame duck, and the fact that America is becoming more conservative is not necessarily good for Israel.

Indeed, in order to figure out whether this is good or bad for Israel, we better first figure out what Israel wants: If PM Netanyahu is seeking an agreement, as he claims to be doing, what he needs is a popular, powerful president with plenty of self-confidence. A president who can force his will on everyone, including on us.
