Did The White House Lose The Faith of Israel?

Did the White House lose the faith of Israel? The United States and Israel are at odds over the Palestinian Authority, which is demanding Israel make concessions, while refuseing to budge on it own framework position.

America under Obama has lost the faith of Israelis, with reports claiming that they no longer trust in the U.S ability to negotiate with Iran.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday explained why he cancelled funding that was to be issued to the Housing Ministry for new construction in Judea and Samaria, stressing that this would increase their favor with the nations in order to stop Iran.

“At this time, the attention of the international community must not be diverted from the main effort – preventing Iran from receiving an agreement that will allow it to continue its military nuclear program. As a member of the government, action must be coordinated and have the benefit of forethought,” said Netanyahu

Rafi Smith Institute released a poll that found the large majority of Israelis do not believe the United States is looking out for Israel’s interest and that the White House is not being honest with Israel regarding the true nature of the negotiations with Iran.

The poll asked if can Israel rely on the United States to ensure Israel’s security regarding the negotiations with Iran. The survey found 55 percent of Israelis said that it could not, while only 31 percent said it could, and 70 percent of the right-wing said that Israel could not trust us. On the left, 40 percent said that they could.

Rafi Smith Institute asked, if they believed that the Obama administration is telling Israel everything it needs to know about the Iranian program: 24 percent agrees that the Obama administration is giving Israel an “accurate picture” of the negotiations and 42 percent believe that Israel is not being supplied with all of the details, while over one-third of those that were polled said they did not know the answer to that question.

The easing of sanctions against Tehran in exchange for an Iranian promise to reduce its level of uranium enrichment did not sit well with Netanyahu. The Prime Minister had criticized the deal that the U.S had been trying to put together with Iran and in return he clearly gained a larger majority approval from his people.

People’s Pundit Daily previously reported on the inner workings of the deal, and the administrations effort to delay sanction implementation to move the negotiations along.

Furthermore, it is safe to say that the majority of Israelis do not believe that our President Barack Obama is willing to seek out our ally’s best interests let alone trust White House administration to be honest regarding said negotiations with Iran.

How could anyone blame the majority of our ally’s disbelief in the White House’s ability to procure a honest deal, amid new revelations our own president lies or “deceives” his very own nation.
