Israel’s oldest newspaper Haaretz endorses Obama
Jerusalem: President Barack Obama, who has battled accusations that he is not fully committed to the US relationship with Israel, has locked down the endorsement of that country’s left-of center newspaper.
In an editorial, Haaretz called Obama ‘good for Israel’ and wrote:
“Obama continued this two-way track vis-à-vis Iran and the issue of Palestinian statehood. Under his pressure, Israel suspended for the first time - for a while - construction in the settlements”.
“Relations between the two countries`` armed forces have never been so close. Obama`s challenge in his second term, if he wins the elections, is to lead the region to a stable arrangement of peace and security,” Politico quoted the report, as stating.
According to the report, while Obama has come under constant criticism for his testy relationship with the Israeli government, a recent IBD/CSM/TIPP poll showed him leading among Jewish American voters 59 percent to 35 percent.
That’s down significantly from his 2008 results, where exit polls showed that he won 78 percent of Jewish voters, the report added.
