Netanyahu To Israeli Jews: Get To Know Obama 'Like I've Gotten To Know Him' NBC's Chuck Todd asked Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu why he thinks Israeli Jews have not accepted President Obama. Netanyahu responded, "I think that people should get to know President Obama like I've gotten to know him... I want to express my thanks to everything you have done and I also want to say thank you for that statement you just made. I think it's very, very important. So I think Israelis will judge this by the unfolding events and by what is happening, by what is actually taking place."
