Surprise: Obama may intervene in Israeli elections

If Danny Ayalon actually believes the nonsense in the previous post, he hasn't been talking to his own government.

Senior Israeli political officials are bracing for the results of the US presidential elections as many estimate that the elected president will affect the 2013 Knesset elections.
In light of Benjamin Netanyahu's support for Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, the prime minister's associates fear that US President Barack Obama may take revenge against him if re-elected and support his political rivals.

Obama's aides accuse Netanyahu of blatantly intervening in the US election campaign. In the third and final debate between Obama and Romney, the president teased the Republican candidate for visiting Israel in order to raise funds.

Romney, on his part, has promised to make Israel his first destination as president if elected. 

State officials in Jerusalem estimate that Obama's anger at Netanyahu is so intense that the president, if re-elected, will try to indirectly – and perhaps even directly – sabotage the prime minister's election campaign.
The prime minister's aides fear that Obama will publicly criticize Netanyahu's policy and embarrass him during the election campaign. In addition, the US president may stop automatically backing Israel in international forums over its policy in the territories.
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said in a closed forum that she believes that the Israeli elections will create an opportunity to revive peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.
Clinton also said that the Obama administration would become more involved in the Middle East conflict if re-elected for a second term.
What could go wrong?

American leftists and Obama supporters are torn between giving atomic weapons TO Iran and rounding up all the Jews in America for 'relocation to the east'. Obama for his part believes he is Man-God of the world and had dominion over the Jews in Israel to do his bidding.
