Thanks C from E.
Clearly, the Obama government wants to improve relations with the Arab world. If the President sees Israel as the main roadblock to that goal, it is believed that he will either try to manipulate Israel to his own ends, or, if Israel proves intransigent, eventually abandon her.
That's not a change over US policy for the past 35 years or so, since the 1973 war. The elder Bush screwed Israel over loan guarantees (promising to support it if Israel would sit back and just take it when Saddam was shooting rockets into Israeli territory during the Gulf War) and the dominant theme during the Reagan administration wasn't exactly pro-Israel all the time. Clinton coddled terrorists in the former Yugoslavia, passed up at least one chance to nab bin Laden, and basically just rolled over and rolled us over as well.
By contrast Nixon distinguished himself with the Operation Nickel Grass airlift -- "send everything that will fly." Nixon, Ford, and Carter presided over the rapproachement between Sadat and Begin after that war, with the Jew-hating incompetent anti-American POS Carter getting the credit and a Nobel Prize. The younger Bush administration insisted on a couple of fixed frameworks, but the fact is, compromise doesn't work with Muzzies; however, the liberation of Iraq has stuck a great big cork in the ass of Islamofascism and in the otherwise universal despotism that characterizes the non-Israeli Middle East, and has isolated the Saudis from Iran and from Iraq. Idiobama is going to screw that up, bigtime, even though, ultimately, US foreign policy goals remain on a long-term trend of keeping our enemies divided.

"Will the United States Abandon Israel?"
With Obama and Hillary controlling U.S. foreign policy, it's a sure bet a sell out is in the works, also considering those two hate the fact Bibi & the Likud won the Israeli elections.
When Israel is vindictively sold out America will pay dearly as a nation.
