The Wall Street Journal reports: Mr. Netanyahu and his government have been effusive in praising Mr. Obama for his support of the Gaza operation. “We couldn’t have asked for more,” said Michael Oren, Israel’s ambassador to the U.S., in an interview.
The White House and State Department, meanwhile, have been pressing Egypt’s government to constrain Hamas. Mr. Obama called Mr. Morsi on Wednesday night. And Secretary of State Hillary Clinton talked with her counterpart, Foreign Minister Mohammed Amr, Thursday.
