12 ways Obama has screwed Israel... in the last year

I don't agree with everything he writes and David Horovitz doesn't even mention Turkey (okay, that was March 2013), but this is a devastating piece that lists 12 ways in which Obama has screwed Israel over the last year (David would never put it so coarsely). Here's a summary:
You might think the above list is the least that Israel might reasonably expect from the US administration. But no. The peace process has collapsed and Israel is getting a disproportionate amount of the blame. Hamas, committed under its own charter to the obliteration of Israel, is now part of an internationally recognized Palestinian government. And the P5+1 nations, led by the US, are working toward a deal that will enshrine Iran’s uranium enrichment capabilities. Israel may not be a perfect ally, but we deserve better than this.
But what gets me about this is that David Horovitz - who once told me that he could not live in Israel without hope for peace - still holds out hope and even more importantly still cannot see that Obama and his wing of the Democratic party are Israel's enemies. 
Unfortunately, however, such lapses and failures are not the exception when it comes to the US-Israel alliance of late. This administration has worked closely with Israel in ensuring the Jewish state maintains its vital military advantage in this treacherous neighborhood, partnering Israel in offensive and defensive initiatives, notably including missile defense. It has stood by Israel at diplomatic moments of truth. It has broadly demonstrated its friendship, as would be expected given America’s interest in promoting the well-being of the region’s sole, stable, dependable democracy. But the dash to recognize the Fatah-Hamas government was one more in a series of aberrations — words and deeds that would have been far better left unsaid or undone, misconceived strategies, minor betrayals.
Actually, it's Congress that's been partnering Israel and forcing Obama to go along. Obama has abandoned Israel each time he has felt able to do so. 'Stood by Israel at diplomatic moments of truth? Really?

I totally agree with you Carl, and the Turkey part should not be neglected, they are the 'lifeline' of Iran with the aid of the Obama 'admin'

Actually, one thing that characterizes Mr. Obama is he doesn't stand by anybody. Long time church pastor became a liability? Under the bus. Things got complicated in Benghazi? Forget about 'em. Allies like Israel? What allies?

Honor, dignity, loyalty, shouldering responsibility are not in his vocabulary. Unless, of course, you're an unrepentant terrorist. He befriends American terrorists like the Weathermen - why wouldn't he befriend Arab terrorists in the Middle East?

The incredible part of this situation that is consistently left out is this:

One can't absorb $$BBillions of U.S. Commie Democrat Fraud-Gaia Green $lu$h handed out year after year by Obama, Clinton, Kerry, etc. and then be surprised when the Paymasters take presumptive stands re Israel. And one can't keep lobbying and advocating for these Democrat Gatekeepers of the Public Gaia Cookiejar to keep it flowing and then not understand how they are back in power. It's one thing for military funding... and even teaming on biomed, water, etc. R&D. But intervenous tranquilizing infusions of $lu$h cause Israeli stupefaction in dealing with huge dangers.

Of course, I think I'm the only person on the planet who thinks this way. People I know (the few) who are Jewish and Republican are thrilled with the $lu$h. They think it is good for the Israeli economy, blah blah blah. So you get what you get. "Just say no" is an option.
