I cannot give the current occupant of the White House the benefit of the doubt.  He is quite simply a vile and petty man.  And he is not a friend of Israel at all.

Barack Obama became a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ in 1988.   The senior pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ was Jeremiah Wright, who had taken charge of the congregation in 1972. Obama remained a member of the church from 1988 until 2008, while he was running for President of the United States. 

            Jeremiah Wright has repeatedly made some comments that could be easily construed as, well, anti-Semitic.  And obviously he is no friend of Israel.  After Barack Obama had become president, Jeremiah Wright was quoted as saying:

"Them Jews aren't gonna let [Obama] talk to me. I told my baby daughter, that he'll talk to me in five years when he's a lame duck, or in eight years when he's out of office."

"The Jewish vote, the A-I-P-A-C vote that's controlling him that would not let him send a representation to the Darfur [Durban] review conference that's talking this craziness because the Zionists, they will not let him talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is.  Ethnic cleansing is going on in Gaza. The ethnic cleansing of the Zionists is a sin and a crime against humanity. They don't want Barack talking like that because that's anti-Israel."  (from an interview with Newport News, VA-based newspaper The Daily Press June 9, 2009)

            Later, in 2012 Wright served as an “official adviser” to the Global March to Jerusalem (GMJ) whose organizers included leading members of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.  It was described as a peaceful protest aimed at highlighting the so-called “Judaization of Jerusalem.”  The organizers rejected the concept of the two-state solution and wished to see the destruction of the Jewish state.

Despite his attempts to distance himself from his former pastor, with President Obama siding with the Palestinians by abstaining from the vote in the United Nations on December 23, it seems obvious to me that the current occupant of the White House—who thankfully will depart it in less than a month—fully agrees with the thinking of his former pastor and his allies.  I therefore believe that President Obama is not only mistaken in his opinions regarding Israel, but is actively choosing to side with evil.
