I thought Obama was pretty much anti-isreali?

Apparently, Obama and Netanyahu thoroughly despise one another, but it doesn’t actually affect U.S. foreign policy in any way. I don’t think he would have ever gained the Presidency in the first place if he hadn’t sworn undying allegiance to Israel, but even if was just masquerading for political reasons he probably wouldn’t have the power to change deeply embedded, longstanding policy anyway.
