Netanyahu: I hope Obama does not help establish a Palestinian state

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday said "he hoped" the White House would stand by Israel and not help establish a Palestinian state at the United Nations during an interview with Channel 2 aired following the end of the Sabbath.
Asked by Channel 2 if US President Barack Obama had promised Netanyahu not to help establish a Palestinian state unilaterally  without Israel's cooperation during his last months in office, the Prime Minister said: "If your asking did he speak to me about this, the answer is no."
"I am hoping that he won't do this, the answer is yes," he added.
