Is Obama losing face over Israel?

This is from Politico's Ben Smith:
The Americans have stopped repeating their outrage. Congressional voices are calling on both sides to chill out, with the most senior yet, House Foreign Affairs Chairman Howard Berman blaming the flap on the Israelis but also, notably, pushing the White House "to disentangle bilateral relations from the peace process."

And if Netanyahu doesn't wind up losing face, doesn't Obama? What was intended as a show of strength risks, without results, turning into a show of impotence.

I happen to agree with the Prime Minister's brother in law, Hagai Ben Artzi, that Obama is an anti-Semite. Its just stating the truth. Netanyahu distanced himself from the observation but I don't think Begin would have done it. Its obvious Obama has no love of Israel.
