While the Obama Administration refuses to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he travels to the U.S. next month to address Congress on the Iranian nuclear threat due to the proximity of the Israeli election, both John Kerry and Joe Biden met with Israeli Labor Party leader Isaac Herzog over the weekend in Munich.
It's pretty chickensh#t, but can we expect anything less of the Obama Administration?
After all, members of Obama's campaign team have travelled to Israel to unseat Netanyahu. President Obama would rather do business with the Mullahs of Iran than with Netanyahu.
So it will be up to Netanyahu to persuade Israeli voters that they have a choice between a Prime Minister who puts the security interests of Israel first or an opposition that puts the interests of Barack Obama first.
