White House Upset at Israel’s Neutrality Regarding Ukraine


The Haaretz news agency reported this morning (Sunday) that the US State Department and White House have amassed great fury at Israel’s ‘neutral attitude’ towards all related to Russia’s annexation of Crimea.

Senior officials in the American government expressed much disappointment regarding Israel’s lack of support America’s position on the Ukrainian crisis. A senior American official indicated that one reason for the White House’s anger was the fact that Israel was absent from the general vote at the UN 2 weeks ago regarding the decision to condemn Russia for its invasion of Crimea.
