President Obama needs to work with him and he did the right thing. I don’t like the fact that Prime Minister Netanyahu claims to speak for all Jews. Many of us in the diaspora want to see peace and he is doing everything a politician does to stay in power and is not looking for peace. I hope his pants on a two-state solution changes. if not we will not be seeing peace any time soon.

US President Barack Obama, seen here in the Oval Office on October 8, 2014, called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to congratulate him on his recent election win, after a campaign that soured relations between the two alliesUS President Barack Obama on Thursday called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to congratulate him on his recent election win, after a campaign that soured relations between the two allies. Obama spoke to the Israeli leader “to congratulate him on his party’s success in winning a plurality of Knesset seats,” the White House said. Ties have been tested by Netanyahu’s pledge on the campaign trail to oppose the creation of a Palestinian state, which had been the starting point of countless rounds of Middle East peace negotiations. Since the election, Netanyahu has sought to row back on his campaign rhetoric, but the White House has pointedly stated it will review policies that provided diplomatic cover for Israel at the United Nations.
