One element of Barack Obama’s extension of Carterism in his foreign policy is his hostility to Israel. In his hostility to Israel Obama has proved steadfast.
The generally unflappable and moderate David Horovitz, editor of the Times of Israel, expresses deep dismay over Obama’s unloading on Israel in Jeffrey Goldberg’s interview with Obama. Horovitz calls it an “earth-shattering interview.” He concludes with the observation “that Obama chose to have his real say about Netanyahu before the prime minister had arrived, and it constituted something akin to political assassination.” John Podhoretz has more, all of it worth reading, here.
UPDATE: Elliott Abrams also deserves a hearing on Goldberg’s interview with Obama.
