Israelis are concerned about how much support they will receive from President Barack Obama during the next two years. And the revolution in Egypt has only intensified those worries, The Hill
The Israeli government already felt betrayed by the president for his
2009 call for an Israeli settlement freeze as a pre-condition for peace talks with the Palestinians and for his 2009 Cairo speech, in which he urged a “new beginning” between the West and Muslims.
