US President Barack’s Obama’s carefully crafted Israel itinerary is aimed at
combating those who deny the Holocaust and/or Jewish peoplehood, ambassador to
the US Michael Oren said on Sunday.
Oren, who arrived on Sunday to be
part of the two-day Obama visit that begins on Wednesday afternoon, told The
Jerusalem Post that the Obama team came to the Israelis with the idea of what
messages they wanted the visit to convey, and then asked for suggestions about
how best to get those messages across
