Hours of said -- -- wonderful things about the relationship unbreakable unshakable alliance.
And -- -- seen the recent polls here in Israel it suggests that almost 40% of the Israeli people.
Believe that the president has hospital.
-- has a hostile attitude towards Israel why that this can.
Well and they did a really complete physical positioning and his it -- this -- and it.
That donation to President Obama about and -- -- the choruses of his.
And those good looks religious service and -- different reasons.
-- sentences in Orange and supported him.
I know that -- electoral fueled by the -- dangerous it is horrible I don't think it.
I think picture of them that president of the board of the company and all the vehicles.
And I would look at their children.
Not Brooke is -- -- mic is live event of -- problems.
His story democracy.
And -- monitoring.
His stories that process.
Democracy is in the system and technologies that -- President Obama a present in -- way by United States.
And hope and those actually got to go.
Aspect cynical -- vibrant.
Which represented stupid.
They devotion to democracy is there a station.
In -- sense that you don't want to be just the -- the government.
-- of the world -- -- -- democracy like you.
And edited for content and thankfully it.
If I really don't look -- but what I sense.
America out additionally.
-- and it went to walk and old Oakland -- -- other people to be pre.
And -- America.
Is really did him in polls in the innovations.
And changes that comes from -- I was election -- -- affect the United States and so we.
Over there and that efficient and so Albright -- -- become.
A and I don't know the plane and -- us.
2 o'clock don't be so if you're competitors but didn't look -- because.
-- and what's happening at all Bahrain.
Which is -- -- although.
We don't always those files are full well maybe.
I've been able on crucial role.
Who may exhibit C and it couldn't be possible that we should do to make a visiting.
Good group of unity truce.
To -- a -- and inhibit them.
-- -- powerful words and -- America went to war for other people's freedom and tell me how you think that applies to the situation with Iran right now.
You met with President Obama yesterday.
Did you come away feeling like if you need the US to attack Iran president Obama's willing to do it.
In my experience.
Those opponent know that an American president those -- announce something by accident.
If things -- Vehicles soldiers picked through.
And and it says something in knows that it is -- a commitment.
So what does it they're -- don't grosans.
There are -- coping with the world's because they have to give the American contributed to that is number one.
Number of story can see the reasons why you the president and upon him.
You can save it to -- -- Think it does get on the victim and dangerous.
The conflict there and -- come close to poses problems.
-- something that holds them back.
There was nothing that holds negative -- -- direction.
-- in the -- convicts that I do now ambitious.
There wasn't -- to all communities.
It's a small won't be there and -- competitors if and and incredible he's a danger that.
Who refuse so called -- and I think it -- is it -- trust well.
I -- those on those and that the president wants to provide nor admitted it means everybody will do it in America.
The United States doesn't -- social.
That I Salgado from.
-- -- -- -- -- -- So there's a lot of in my eyes it's normal -- -- -- To build equipment and his special political edition.
If -- special to negotiate.
-- -- specialty -- economic sanctions.
Only own views who -- -- right there and Donna -- Leonardo option in golden -- another option old goggles on taxes.
So when you say the practice this president like any US president watches his words carefully -- through before says -- when he suggested yesterday.
He has every option on the table yes those are not just words you believe it means the US -- -- yes US is ready to shoot if if necessary yet.
And and be brought to -- don't.
-- and I'm going to explode over other possibilities.
And I think -- an American president going -- America.
It is saluted -- couple Beers.
But if somebody threatened experience.
America is -- to -- him.
I want to talk about Syria there's a division in the world right now about whether or not Syria.
And president insiders already use chemical weapons.
Israeli intelligence minister yesterday suggested.
He believes they have.
President prayers believe that Assad has already use chemical weapons.
Could -- lose I don't know where -- was it I don't condone terrorism so there world revolted.
But -- moved there -- -- ago world is divided.
In these different leagues you have to understand it on his you can slow night and sharing and they're saying it deeply -- and everything.
Dodd though is everything and young and all.
This is another boat -- on the good.
And that there of his -- -- to have -- the cardinals.
This type -- soon isn't always technical accomplishment it is -- -- and -- It's a confrontation between young and old it's in consultation about her in the -- no.
No that was a coalition that has stood didn't I think they count.
Have to take that putra.
And and their -- and they know of these divisions.
It's an out pulled him.
It's an Arab organization and he could they have to do what the Africans -- in Africa and organized -- also -- those.
-- -- -- business of the United Nations.
And -- the -- it.
If everybody goes -- particularly those say that this deployment government no.
-- the Arabs that exists.
That was as -- strengths.
-- the most vulnerable people about what's happening is suited up in my judgment this is the bears weren't.
Alone -- the Arab world.
-- -- -- in Connecticut folds in -- Instruments.
Limited undercover the United Nations.
President you said something similar to my colleague Bret -- last June when you're in Washington and you were saying bad.
The Arab League really needs to -- here you know and I went back and -- the tape and you said -- was a -- with no future.
You said that that the carnage had to stop and that was almost ten months ago in the killing has continued.
So what does the international community need to do.
And at the time he told -- there what was breaking your heart was all of these small caskets all these children are being killed in Syria.
And here we are ten months later and it continues what.
Needs to be done.
I think that even -- world of acceptable -- problems that can work.
Until know we don't have one opinion -- And I'd better do it live members United Nations including harsh.
Currency coming as it transitional government.
Or you time.
Stormed -- and -- and about bill's going to.
Your -- didn't have been in ten months and nothing happened and and then.
Because there wasn't a decision -- but I policy.
And -- -- seek him.
-- they're effective they're miracles don't they.
Let me ask you about one other issue which is Jonathan Pollard I seen signs all around Israel.
Yes you can to President Obama playing off his campaign theme -- 2008.
Did you raised this yesterday evening meetings with President Obama and how did -- react.
Don't want to open Jonathan Pollard -- -- Wendy's and actually it was more owners doing your -- that -- -- the division and it was those those those children who do.
This is no rules.
And then trying to SeaWorld ended -- So did you feel there was at least a commitment that he's not just saying I'll look into it but but the US is really considering.
I'm -- though that -- losses though the problem obscure.
More than as soon go to and is.
So can you just leave on a final question.
The American audience and -- -- -- -- -- -- well.
And as a president.
-- -- hearing goes so.
Don't -- I have to check please totally reckless.
-- -- -- -- The nation gave me the authority to call on that argument with the human.
So my judgment is no.
Amendments that are important to -- for me -- with the hopefully totally ludicrous is quite or not.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Because many of those people look of them didn't leave behind them for the little born in new -- -- -- -- it must -- justice.
And the fine line between that told them his that it.
-- -- -- -- -- Those are the same time.
Because -- -- -- Italian.
And that's what President Obama needs to do in this case that's how it applies for you I think he's -- -- -- it.
And so final question for an American audience and an international audience -- we'll see this.
You had a rare opportunity to spend a lot of private time with President Obama what was the most important thing you took away.
From that time that.
Basically there's a bulldozer -- I think community millions -- I think community fruit that -- it -- put him over the world.
I think memento.
What was this kind of -- -- that -- American -- -- What is important.
-- -- and I -- is important and ordered him.
I currencies -- -- securing his books include in prison amended location.
Accuracy is this Ohio.
Rockets and hope to recover president of the United -- people don't appreciate that.
Really admired -- hit a really good medical field and birdies -- being -- at your candidate.
It doesn't happen user -- It's a group through -- broke proposed.
And -- -- solutions and disappointment.
And to be good for the second time I don't think.
That is changing America I think it changed America looked at him and and those are able to create a president that they propose to -- him and -- so that is something.
-- say they're aware of Littleton in the photo President Obama.
But in general that I took says and this can happen on -- One -- -- -- a young man.
-- to integrate charms.
And let him on.
-- -- -- -- -- -- --
