White House Releases List of Obama Actions

After weeks of tension between the United States and Israel over Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s upcoming address to Congress, the White House released a guide to the US-Israel relationship on Sunday.


The document, titled “5 Things You Need to Know About the US-Israel Relationship Under President Obama,” was posted to the National Security Council’s website by spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan.


The White House, whose initial reaction to Netanyahu’s speech was frosty, before becoming downright hostile, may be looking to smooth things over, or more likely refute claims of an anti-Israel bias.


The first fact the list states is that “President Obama has strengthened Israel’s defense in concrete and unprecedented ways,” outlining more specifically the foreign military financing Israel has received from the US as well as joint military exercises between the two countries.


Next, the document asserts that under Obama “the US has led global efforts to defend Israel’s legitimacy on the world stage.”
