What 6 Months Of Obama Has Done To US-Israel Relations

In Israel Betrayed, James Kirchick writes in The New York Post about how Obama has turned his back on Israel--and about the consequences:
The percentage of American voters who call themselves supporters of Israel has plummeted from 69% last September to 49% this month, according to the Israel Project. Meanwhile, only 6% of Jewish Israelis consider Obama to be "pro-Israel," a Jerusalem Post poll found, pointing to a disturbing gulf between the two nations. There are even signs of rising anti-Semitism, as a survey by Columbia and Stanford professors found that 32% of Democrats blamed Jews for the financial crisis.
That the Golden Age of US-Israel relations is over is clear.
The question now remains as to what can be done deal with the current tensions that Obama has created.
