President Obama needs.

What has not changed?
Israel relations with USA representatives and people are good and stable
The declining popularity of president Obama in USA,
the resent losses of Democrats in elections ,
the next critical elections to senate and House of Representatives
are the key factors needs for a different media coverage of the meeting with Netanyahu

Obama has not changed his Islamic Chamberlain style policy resulting:
N/. Korea is aggressive as never before
Turkey jointed the Islamist club
Iran opposition was not supported by Obama and the Islamist grip has increased
Islamist aggression in Yemen. Somalia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Hamas, Hisbula, and terror by individuals in USA and worldwide are on the rise
1; The Senate and House of representatives
In a letter to president Obama date Jun 17 2010

Fully support of Israel rights to self defense
Urged Obama to remain steadfast in defense of Israel
Called Obama to veto any resolution in UN security council criticizing Israel
