Well, that relationship between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu never really did bloom, did it? And now, even the stem is wilting. Before his resounding victory, Netanyahu took Obama’s 2-state solution to peace between Israel and Palestine, and tore it to pieces, never to happen. Of course, before that he took Obama’s nuclear program deal with Iran, with a deadline for progress just a couple days away, and in front of Congress, tore it to pieces, inciting a group of GOP senators to threaten Iran directly that they too, were prepared to tear it to pieces.
