The Washington source added that the president “might visit in the summer to reassure the Israelis that the US commitment to defend Israel is unshakable and thus thwart a possible autumn attack.”

    How ridiculous for a White House official to tell anyone the time that Israel is considering
    to strike Iran. Why not just give the expected Day and Time of Arrival of Israel’s Airstrike.

    The Obama Administration is not to be Trusted. They will betray Israel. To telegraph to the enemy of a friend is deplorable. Obama is just interested in getting elected. He leans
    strongly to his Muslim brotherhood friends, he uses who or what to get to the next step in his interest. It’s all about him.

    The leaks will increases, the less Netanyahu tells Obama the better. Unless it’s misinformation. Shalom Bruce R. Wilburn
