'US-Israel ties are so bad, it's no wonder they don't listen to us on Iran'

Yesh Atid head and former finance minister Yair Lapid told a town hall meeting in Tel Aviv on Saturday that “relations between Israel and the United States have never been worse.”
Lapid, who just returned from a trip to the US, said that he was “enlisting in the war against the boycott because I’m an Israeli patriot.”
In his conversations with US officials, Lapid said he was told that due to the poor ties between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Barack Obama, “it’s no wonder that nobody listens to you when it comes to the Iranian issue.”
