During Obama’s tenure, U.S.-Israel relations have fallen to their lowest point in decades.
President Barack Obama apparently thinks he’s the closest thing to a Jewish president America has ever had.
Speaking to JPUpdates.com, top Obama confidant David Axelrod described a moment where the president expressed exasperation to him over being derided as anti-Israel by some.
“You know, I think I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office,” the president claimed, according to Axelrod. “For people to say that I am anti-Israel, or, even worse, anti-Semitic, it hurts.”
