David Storobin, Republican New York State Senator, administered a tongue-lashing Wednesday to President Barack Obama, telling him: "Mr. President' if you're listening to this, remember  -- you gotta fight for your friends if you want to have your friends there!" He was referring to the prospect of an attack on Iran.

"If you lose this friend, a very loyal friend, nobody else will want to be a friend of the U.S.", he warned.

"Obama has not been at the forefront of helping Israel. Barack Obama went to Egypt, went to Jordan, went to a lot of other places that are close to Israel. He never came to Israel. More than that, during official talks between the Prime Minister of Israel and President Obama, he got up and walked out of the meeting. "

"It is completely improper… and considering that he goes down and bows to the royal family of Saudi Arabia and at the same time walks out of Israel… he has shown where his real loyalties lie."
