I read with interest Gabe Kahn’s take on President Obama’s stabbing of Israel in the back by virtue of the U.S. decision to abstain on the recent UN Security Council resolution “Obama’s contempt for Netanyahu led to UN resolution” (Jan. 5). May I ask, how in light of his action(s) can he conclude your article with the suggestion that former Pres. Obama had the best interests of Israel at heart? You have to be kidding! Either that or he still believes in the tooth fairy as well. What Obama did was more than a petty rebuke of Netanyahu; it was a demonstration of his favoritism to Muslims and a reaffirmation of the fact that Netanyahu’s “best friend” is no friend to Israel.
