WASHINGTON — Top Republican contenders for the White House in 2012 accused President Barack Obama on Thursday of betraying staunch US ally Israel in his new long-shot push for Middle East peace.
“President Obama has thrown Israel under the bus,” thundered former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, generally viewed as the frontrunner in the race for the party’s presidential nomination.
“He has disrespected Israel and undermined its ability to negotiate peace. He has also violated a first principle of American foreign policy, which is to stand firm by our friends,” Romney said in a statement.
Obama declared earlier in a sweeping speech on the Middle East that that the borders of Israel and a future Palestinian state must be based on 1967 lines, igniting an immediate clash with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
