"US President [Barack] Obama took a stance in favor of the Palestinians whenever possible and did not visit Israel during his tenure as president, even though he visited Egypt and Saudi Arabia," Danon said.
The Likud MK, who frequently meets with Republican politicians and pundits, added that Romney is a true friend of Israel, and that his visit "emphasizes his commitment to the future of Israel and its people."
Danon said that recent attempts by Obama to improve relations with Israel are "too little too late," and will not lead voters to forget years of giving a cold shoulder to Israel.
