ABC News Reports: Amid tension between the U.S. and Israel over Iran’s nuclear ambitions, an official Israeli government twitter account linked Tuesday to an article criticizing President Obama for “failing to put Israel at ease.”
“Israeli official: Obama doesn’t give us same sense Clinton did that he’ll be there if things go bad – Times of #Israel,” the official Twitter feed of the Israeli government press office posted.
The Times of Israel article in question quotes an anonymous government official saying, “President Clinton made us feel like he had our back [at Camp David]. When we made concessions that were greater than anything an Israeli government had ever offered, we felt he’d be there if things went bad. Would he have been there? I don’t know. But it felt that way, and it put us in a different frame of mind. President Obama doesn’t give us the same sense that he’d be there.”
