Shapiro slams MK Oren over Obama criticism: He’s a politician trying to sell books

US Ambassador Dan Shapiro took on his former counterpart Michael Oren on Wednesday, saying that his description of US-Israel ties under US President Barack Obama “does not reflect the truth.”

Oren, who has just written a book on his years as Israel’s ambassador to the US from 2009-2013 during a period of the strained relationship between Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, wrote in a Wall Street Journal piece Tuesday that Obama intentionally abandoned two core principles of Israel’s alliance with America: no public daylight between the two states, and no surprises.
