Then-Israeli ambassador to the US Michael Oren arrives to address the American Israel Public Affairs Committee annual policy conference in Washington, DC, on March 3, 2013A top US official on Wednesday denounced “false” assertions by a former Israeli ambassador that the Obama administration has abandoned Israel, a traditional ally of the United States. “From the moment he entered office, Mr. Obama promoted an agenda of championing the Palestinian cause and achieving a nuclear accord with Iran. Such policies would have put him at odds with any Israeli leader,” Oren wrote in Monday’s Wall Street Journal.
