In WSJ Op-Ed, Feith Pushes Right-Wing Media Narrative That Obama is Anti-Israel
In a November 2 Wall Street Journal column , Douglas Feith, former Under Secretary of Defense under President George W. Bush, claimed that President Obama's policies and actions related to Israel were "cold treatment" and that Obama has displayed "antagonism toward Israel and feckless courting of its enemies."
Feith's op-ed is just the latest  in the right-wing media  narrative  that Obama is "anti-Israel"  because of his policies toward Israel - even though these policies are often ones that were advocated for  or articulated by  the Bush administration or echoed  by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu himself.
Additionally, Netanyahu has thanked Obama for, among other things, Obama's support  during the last U.N. General Assembly meeting; U.S. help  in extracting six Israeli security guards from the Israeli embassy in Cairo; U.S. funding  of missile defense for Israel; and the killing  of Osama bin Laden.
Moreover, Israeli Defense Minister and former Prime Minister Ehud Barak said  in August that he "can hardly remember a better period of ... American support" than "right now."
That's a lot of thanks and praise for Obama, particularly in light of his supposed "antagonism toward Israel."
