This is how a statesman is supposed to behave. Laser-like focus on advancing national interests, and doing so with eloquence/grace. Not sure why he doesn’t have a higher popularity rating in Israel, although I do see it’s gone up since he’s been in America.
People think that he’s needlessly antagonistic, plus they still hate him from his first time as Israel’s prime minister.
To me, if I were an Israeli, surrounded by foes and had an administration as questionable as the present one in the White House…well, let’s just say I’d want a guy who I could see nuking Tehran if it came to that as _my_ PM. Because if President Obama is this pro-Palestinian in his _first_ term, imagine what he’s going to be like if he wins reelection.
