Israeli President Rivlin says 'Israel is isolated'

"And in that (last) day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome (heavy) stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces (and hurt themselves), though all the people (nations) of the earth be gathered together against it (Israel)." - Zechariah 12:3

Reuven Rivlin concerned about worsening relations between Israeli PM and US president over Iran nuclear deal

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin expressed concern Thursday about the tensions between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Barack Obama over Iran’s nuclear agreement with world powers.

“I am very concerned about the open front between Obama and Netanyahu, and its impact on our relations with the United States,” Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said according to Israeli daily Maariv.

“Netanyahu understands the United States better than I do, but for the first time, I see that Israel is isolated,” Rivlin said. “This worries me greatly.”
