Obama and Nethanyahu avoid divisions in the first meeting in seven months

A meeting of only an hour in Washington, without lunch and no other ambition than to underline the good relations between the United States and Israel.

Prime Minister Benjamin Nethanyahu met this Wednesday with Barack Obama for the first time in seven months.

An opportunity for Obama to remind Washington's concern with the recent intervention in Gaza, stressing at the same time the North American collaboration on Israeli anti-missile shield installation that caught the ratchets of Hamas.

Nethanyahu intended to talk about Iran, but Obama chose to address the Palestinian question underscoring the need to resume the peace in the territory disucussões, without addressing the controversial issue of the expansion of Israeli settlements.

If the Israeli Prime Minister reaffirmed to be committed to the project of creation of a Palestinian State, hours after his economy Minister, Naftali Bennett, revealed the divisions silenced in Washington when he said that, "you can't fight the Islamic State and Hamas and at the same time give them a territory".
