The Obama administration is reportedly "disgusted" with Israel (via). This feeling is from Israel's refusal to halt 'settlement construction'. This is just another attack against Israel from the Obama administration over 'settlement construction' which is just part of the reason only four percent of Israeli Jews think Obama is Pro-Israel which was in the margin or error; a stunning reversal from the numbers while Bush was president. Given Obama's call for a "Contiguous Palestinian State" potentially splitting Israel in half the number would likely be smaller now, and the feeling is almost certainly mutual (the feeling of disgust that is). This a disturbing, pointless, and potentially catastrophically dangerous geopolitical shift we are watching unfold before our eyes.
