Netanyahu accepted Obama's victory. He expressed certainty of continued US support. It's forthcoming no matter who governs both countries.
Defense Minister Ehud Barak congratulated Obama first, saying:
"I have no doubt that the Obama administration will continue with its policy of supporting Israel's security, and with its effort to confront the obstacles facing all of us in our region, to help advance the political process."
"I believe that in the tradition of the deep friendship we have formed with President Obama, we will be able to overcome the difference of positions as much as possible. I wish Obama success in all the tasks before him."- Advertisement -
Other Israeli Knesset members and US ambassador Michael Oren extended their own best wishes. Relations between both countries won't change.
Exit polls showed Obama won 69% of America's Jewish vote. Gallup estimated he'd win from 65 - 70%. In 2008, he got nearly 75%.
Haaretz contributor Amos Harel said "Iran to take center state again on" Obama's agenda. He never "threw Israel under the bus." He prioritizes what's important to both countries. They're in lockstep on most issues. Very much so on Iran.
Longstanding policies pursue regime change. At times, tactics and timing differences surface.
