It's not much of a surprise that the US administration has turned its back on Israel - both in its negotiations with Iran and in pressuring Israel on the 'Palestinian' issue. The following is just a partial list of prominent 'friends of Israel' in the Obama administration, who are very close to the policy makers.
Arif Alikhan – Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Mohammed Elibiary – Homeland Security Adviser.
Rashad Hussain – Special Envoy to the (OIC) Organization of the Islamic Conference.
Salam al-Marayati – Obama Adviser, founder of Muslim Public Affairs Council and its current executive director.
Imam Mohamed Magid – Obama's Sharia Czar, Islamic Society of North America.
Eboo Patel – Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.
We can also mention US Ambassador to the UN, Samatha Power, former Special Adviser to Pres. Obama, who openly called for the establishment of a large international force to protect the Palestinians from Israel.
In truth, who exactly is part of the Obama administration is less important than where we in Israel are holding. I have warned time and again that the erroneous policy of passing the responsibility for the Iranian nuclear program from Israel to the rest of the world will eventually lead to a nuclear Iran. What do we expect of America? For years we have been telling them that Iran is their problem. "OK," the US is now saying to us. "You convinced us. It is our problem. So please sit still and let us take care of our problem our way."
