MOST observers, right or left, pro-Israel or anti-Israel, would agree that Israeli-American relations are the worst in memory.
Among the many indications is that only 9% of Jewish Israelis think President Barack Obama’s administration is more pro-Israel than pro-Palestinian, according to a Smith Research poll taken during the last week of March on behalf of the Jerusalem Post.
Given how much Israelis love and admire (and emigrate to) America, this level of mistrust is all the more remarkable.
Commentators on the left, of course, blame Israel. For them, this is a no-brainer; blaming Israel is as natural as breathing. Further, Israel is headed by a conservative prime minister and America is presided over by the most pro-left president in its history.
