Ynet – Ahead of his first official trip outside the United States, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney accused President Barack Obama of “shabby treatment” of Israeli leaders, and promised to be firm against Iran.
“President Obama is fond of lecturing Israel’s leaders,” Romney said Tuesday in his first speech as an official presidential candidate. “He was even caught by a microphone deriding them. He has undermined their position, which was tough enough as it was. And even at the United Nations, to the enthusiastic applause of Israel’s enemies, he spoke as if our closest ally in the Middle East was the problem.
