Rightist MK: Israel Should Be Wary of Obama

Not everyone was excited about the Obama win last night.
National Union MK Aryeh Eldad warned Israel of Obama’s policies today.
Haaretz reported:

National Union MK Aryeh Eldad said Wednesday that Israel should be wary of Obama, because “he is prone to buying the Arabs’ favors with Israeli currency.”

Eldad said that the American president-elect intends to pull his country’s forces out of Iraq, a move that will endanger Israel gravely.

His fellow right-winger Zvi Hendel (National Union) said, however, that “Israel’s strategic dangers will not come from the American president, no matter what his name is, but from the leader elected in Israel.”


Earlier Wednesday, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said Israel hoped the president-elect would maintain the U.S. friendship with Israel and commitment to peace talks.
