Why Ever Would Isreal Think They Don’t Have an Ally in Obama?

President Obama who can give interviews to People magazine and chat on “morning zoo” radio shows is too busy with his re-election campaign to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu:

President Obama will not meet with Benjamin Netanyahu when the Israeli prime minister is in the United States later this month for the U.N. General Assembly, because the two leaders’ schedules make a meeting impossible, the White House said today. “The President arrives in New York for the UN on Monday, September 24th and departs on Tuesday, September 25th. The Prime Minister doesn’t arrive in New York until later in the week. They’re simply not in the city at the same time. But the President and PM are in frequent contact and the PM will meet with other senior officials, including Secretary Clinton, during his visit,” National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said in a written statement. The announcement comes amid tension between the United States and Israel over Iran’s nuclear program and follows Netanyahu’s declaration earlier this week that those who refuse to put “red lines” before Iran, have no moral right to give Israel a “red light.”

This snub closely follows the embarrassment when the official Democrat Convention Platform specifically removed stating Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, leading to the public shaming of Democrat Delegates booing its re-inclusion in the platform:

Among the many incidents, few were as torturous as the embarrassment where the official White House spokesman won’t name Jerusalem as the capital of Israel as the Israelis designate:

Putting all this together, why ever would Israel think President Obama’s White House holds anything but Isreal’s interest close to its heart?
