Obama rejects ‘rubber stamp’ of Israel policies

WASHINGTON — "Political forces" in Washington seek to provide the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with a rubber stamp for its policies, US President Barack Obama said this week in an interview with the Atlantic magazine.

The interview, with the outlet’s Jeffrey Goldberg, was published one day before the president is scheduled to address Congregation Adas Israel in Washington, where he is expected to outline his administration’s plans to combat a rising tide of anti-Semitism across Europe.

The discussion ranged from the US-led campaign against Islamic State to the president’s attitudes toward the new Israeli government. Obama also discussed the emerging nuclear deal with Iran, and why such a deal was in the interests of the Jewish state.
