Leading into his major trip to London, Israel and Poland to highlight his foreign policy competence and positions, Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Tuesday lashed out at US President Barack Obama for "lecturing Israel's leaders."

“President Obama is fond of lecturing Israel’s leaders,” Romney said. “The people of Israel deserve better than what they have received from the leader of the free world. And the chorus of accusations, threats, and insults at the United Nations should never again include the voice of the president of the United States.”

One of Romney's core messages was attacking Obama’s relationship with Israel, a common theme for Republican candidates during the primary.

The Republican Presidential candidate also slammed Obama, alleging without mentioning specifics, that officials in his administration had leaked details of American cyber-attacks on Iran, and for, as he perceived, not succeeding sufficiently at undermining Iranian efforts to  develop nuclear weapons.

“There is no greater danger in the world today than the prospect of the ayatollahs in Tehran possessing nuclear weapons capability,” Romney said. “Yet for all the talks and conferences, all of the extensions and assurances, can anyone say we are farther from this danger now than four years ago?”
