Yup, it was 1999, and relations with Netanyahu and the Clinton administration were at a low point. Clinton made his distaste for Bibi clear and wanted him out of office.
A couple of differences between then and now.
- Clinton succeeded, and Ehud Barak defeated Netanyahu.
- Clinton actually interefered. Obama in 2015 did very little compared to Clinton's efforts in 1999.
What's the common thread? Bibi. So do you still think Obama "hates Israel" and is an "anti-Semite"? In that case, you have to say the same about Clinton.
Or maybe, just maybe, the problem lies with Bibi, the guy who seems to go out of his way to antagonize multiple US presidents.
