Ayoub Kara Warns Not to Trust Obama
Deputy Negev and Galilee Development Minister Ayoub Kara (Likud) said that despite United States President Barack Obama attempting to portray himself as sympathetic to the Jewish state during his joint White House press conference with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday, Israel should still be careful not to trust the American president.
"He doesn’t sound evil now because he needs Jewish votes and money," warned Kara. "But I won’t forget the pressure he put on Netanyahu and the stress I saw in the prime minister the last time he came back from Washington. He is acting the way he is for political reasons."
