Who’s Creating ‘Daylight’ Now? Jewish Dems Ask Netanyahu [View all]

WASHINGTON (JTA) -- In the U.S.-Israel relationship, "daylight" is back, but this time it’s Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who is being called on to draw down the shades.

Netanyahu’s recent sharp rebuke of the Obama administration’s Iran policies has drawn equally pointed pushback from Jewish Democrats.

The back and forth recalls tensions in the first year of both governments -- but then it was President Obama who was largely bearing the brunt of accusations of allowing for daylight between the two allies, at that time because of differences over how to deal with the Palestinians.

One element is a constant: Then, as now, the pro-Israel community is in the middle pleading for a little quiet.
