Israeli leaders react to alleged Obama criticism of Netanyahu

Israeli political leaders reacted yesterday to a report on the Bloomberg news website by well-known American journalist Jeffrey Goldberg which claimed, “in [US President] Obama’s view, [Israel’s Prime Minister] Netanyahu is moving his country down a path toward near-total isolation.”

Goldberg, who writes principally on foreign affairs and in particular the Middle East, said that White House contacts had told him that “on matters related to the Palestinians the President [Obama] seems to view the Prime Minister [Netanyahu] as a political coward” and that privately Obama shared the view that “Israel doesn’t know what its own best interests are.”
