Netanyahu told Obama he looked forward to continuing to work with him to “address the great challenges facing the US and Israel and to advance peace and security in our region,” according to a press release sent by Netanyahu’s office.

    With the election behind him, I think we are all going to be surprised to find out that Obama is really a true friend of the State of Israel. I now believe that Hashem has sent him to prevent Hillary Clinton from the White House and her finishing the job her husband began vis a vis the Jewish State. Hillary has demonstrated over and over again that she does not bear any fondness toward Israel and likes to employ the ‘peace’ phrase to make people think that she is only acting in a statesman- like way and in Israel’s interest. The fact is, Hillary knows that a two State Solution is not in Israel’s interest and that is why she is always pushing it in one form or another. Hillary is now done in politics and it is because of President Obama. In four years either the country will be ready for a Republican or they will choose a younger and fresher Democrat. Either way, her goose is cooked and this is her final swan song. She is, however, no swan.
