Israel and the United States are in a "crisis of historic proportions" over a settlement dispute that has brought relations to a 35-year low, Israel's ambassador to Washington was quoted on Monday as saying.
The comments attributed to envoy Michael Oren clashed with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's attempts to play down tensions with U.S. President Barack Obama's administration over a West Bank settlement project threatening to derail the renewal of Israeli-Palestinian talks.
"Israel's ties with the United States are in their worst crisis since 1975 ... a crisis of historic proportions," the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper quoted Oren as telling other Israeli diplomats in a telephone briefing over the weekend.

“Historic Crisis with the US”? How about “Historic Crisis with the President”?
Israel should respond by commencing construction of the Third Temple.
Let’s see, the historic crisis would be...Obama’s fault.
Obama Administration behavior is consistent with the way individual humans, when eager to end a romantic relationship, often lie in wait for the perfect opportunity for a blow-up. We've all seen it a thousand times.
Beware, Israel...don't trust Obama or his lackeys.
This is all unfolding in a manner completely consistent with Daniel and Revelation.
Israel’s ties with the US were doomed the day Obamalamadingdong took office.
Bamaboy is kust looking for an excuse.
If the TOTUS-reader was honest he would admit to wanting Israelis (and for that matter all Jews) all pushed into the ocean, just like his handlers ayers and soros.
I can’t decide if Obama is going to cause God to bring His judgement down upon the U.S. or if Obama IS the result of God bringing His judgement down upon the U.S.
“Israel and the United States are in a “crisis of historic proportions” over a settlement dispute that has brought relations to a 35-year low, Israel’s ambassador to Washington was quoted on Monday as saying”
Republican Presidents have always been the best friends of Israel. Jimmah Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama have always been ready to toss the Israelis to the wolves......yet ....American Jews, election after election, vote democRAT. Just don’t get it.
American Jews are elitists who have no real connection with their ancestral homeland or history.
American Blacks have more respect for their ancestral homeland and history.
Unfortunately true, and I fear this nation is just about ready to reap the whirlwind.
Zero hates Bibi. Perhaps he is trying to create a split in the Israeli government in oder to cause a collapse of the government. Stand strong Bibi! 0bama can never be trusted bu a US ally.
Is anyone really surprised that our relationship with Israel is perhaps the worst it’s ever been, considering what occupies the White House?”
I am suggesting that there is an even larger crisis looming:
A committee in Congress a couple of weeks ago declared that the 1915 clash between Turkey and Armenia was a genocide by Turkey.
I don’t know if it was or not——but:
It happened 95 years ago.
The Committee surely has better things to work on.
There is no binding or following legislation on this committee’s vote.
The result? :::
Turkey immediately withdrew it’s Ambassador to the United State.
Another very high ranking person in the Turkish government has declared that Turkey will be more sympathetic towards IRAN in the future.
USA has built a great number of military bases in Turkey, and they are all very important if we are to continue to assist Israel, the Baltic states, etc.
We have no other bases close enough to help fast enough.
All of this could be a bigger problem for Israel and other friends of the USA in the MIddle East.
Why was this committee meddling in the first place? It all happened 95 years ago!!!! Are they going to vote on Hannibal also? Marco Polo? Alexander the Great? What next???
Congressman Cantor and Senator Demint (or anyone in the GOP leadership) need to organize a junket to Israel of Republican congresscritters, and pose for photo-ops with Bibi (ala Pelosi/Assad). They could also use the trip as a sounding board to call out Jewish congressional Democrats to take a stand: either with Israel or her enemies (which Obama is clearly one).
