Israel’s ambassador to the United States is telling his nation’s diplomats that the U.S. and Israel are experiencing a “tectonic rift” – a potentially major break in relations, according to Politico.

The shift isn’t temporary, he reportedly stressed in a meeting to Israeli diplomats.

“There is no crisis in Israel-U.S. relations because in a crisis there are ups and downs,” Oren told a closed briefing to senior officials in the Israeli Foreign Ministry’s North America Branch and research division, Yedioth Ahronoth’s Itamar Eichner reports.

“According to the Israeli diplomats, Oren said …'Relations are in the state of a tectonic rift in which continents are drifting apart,’” Haaretz said.

“Oren noted that contrary to Obama's predecessors — George W. Bush and Bill Clinton — the current president is not motivated by historical-ideological sentiments toward Israel but by cold interests and considerations,” Haaretz reports. “He added that his access as Israel's ambassador to senior administration officials and close advisers of the president is good. But Obama has very tight control over his immediate environment, and it is hard to influence him. ‘This is a one-man show,’ Oren is quoted as saying.”
