Michael Oren: US altered 40-year policy on ’67 lines without consulting Israel

President Barack Obama endorsed the Palestinian position on the 1967 lines in 2011 and by so doing altered more than 40 years of American policy without prior consultation with Israel, former ambassador to the US Michael Oren writes in a book to be published later this month.

Oren, in an account of the book that appeared Friday in The New York Jewish Week, wrote that the Prime Minister’s Office was outraged at the move, and instructed him to call congressional leaders.

“Israel felt abandoned, I was to say. And that is no way to treat an ally,” he wrote.
