It’s no secret that the Obama Administration does not much like Benjamin Netanyahu.
The US administration is hoping Netanyahu will lose the upcoming Israeli elections and be replaced by a weak leader who will turn over more land and Old Jerusalem to the Palestinian terror factions.
Former White House adviser and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel blasted Netanyahu today for supporting pro-Israel Mitt Romney.
Israel National News reported:
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has criticized Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu over what is perceived as his public support of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in the last election, Channel 2 News reported on Sunday.

According to the report, Emanuel, a former White House Chief of Staff, said during a closed session at the Saban Forum in Washington that “Netanyahu supported the wrong candidate in the U.S. elections and lost.”
Emanuel also said that the White House expects that Netanyahu’s treatment of President Barack Obama will be different, especially at this time.
He said the President was not willing to accept degrading treatment by the Israeli Prime Minister. “It is inconceivable that the Prime Minister would behave the way Netanyahu is behaving,” said Emanuel, according to Channel 2.
The New York Times reported on Sunday that President Obama had been shocked to hear about the Israeli government’s decision to approve the construction of 3,000 Jewish homes in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem in response to the Palestinian Authority’s unilateral move at the United Nations.
