Take a look at the reactions of these two countries in response to the monstrous massacre in Newtown. And then consider how contemptuosly Obama treats Israel, while respectfully defering to Iran:
On a side note, I love Prime Minister Netanyahu's use of the word savage.

Letter from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to US President Barack Obama
I was shocked and horrified by today's savage massacre of innocent children and adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.
We in Israel have experienced such cruel acts of slaughter and we know the shock and agony they bring.
I want to express my profound grief, and that of all the people in Israel, to the families that lost their loved ones.
May you and the American people find the strength to overcome this unspeakable tragedy.
With my deepest condolences,
Prime Minister of Israel
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's message to the American people following the massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut
And this letter from President Shimon Peres to US President Barack Obama
Dear President Obama,
On behalf of the people of Israel, as friends and as parents, we stand with you today in contemplation and grief over the atrocious, incomprehensible massacre of 20 children and six adults - educators - at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
No experience with death can be likened to that of a parents loss of their child. No crime is more heinous than the killing of a child.
Our hearts are with the bereaved families of the victims, the mourning community in Newtown, Connecticut and the people of the United States of America. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Shimon Peres President of the State of Israel
And Iran's take on the mass slaughter in Newton:
Michael Harris must pleasure himself watching old Auschwitz and holocaust news reels. That's what it meant by "sick with hate."
Iran: Newtown massacre was Israeli conspiracy YNET
Tehran news website quotes 'expert' alleging horrific Connecticut shooting that claimed lives of 20 children, six adults was Israeli scheme meant to exert revenge on US following 'humiliation at UN'
"The Newtown massacre was the result of an Israeli conspiracy" an Iranian news website proclaimed Tuesday.The United States is still reeling from the murderous rampage that left 20 children and six adults dead in Newtown, Connecticut, on Friday. Tehran – which on Sunday offered its condolences to the victims and their families – is now promoting an alternative explanation to the horrific event.
Iran's Press TV website quoted Michael Harris, former Republican candidate for governor of Arizona and GOP campaign finance chairman, as saying that "An Israeli death squad was involved in the Sandy Hook shooting."
According to the report, Harris called the Newtown tragedy a "terrorist attack," adding that it was "Israel's revenge" and that it was meant to "teach the US lesson," following the Palestinian's status upgrade in the UN.
According to the report, the shooter, Adam Lazna, was meant to be the scapegoat. The report further quoted him as linking the Connecticut incident to Anders Behring Breivik's murderous spree in Norway, in 2011.
"This is exactly what Israel did in Norway; the political party that voted for sanctions against Israel was retaliated against by a 'lone gunman' who killed 77 children.
"This is what Israel always does, they go after the children… The same thing happened at Sandy Hook. Nobody buys the lone gunman story anymore, not with the Gabby Giffords’ shooting, not with the Aurora 'Batman' shooting, certainly not with Breveik, and certainly not in Connecticut," he said.
Harris, reportedly citing the "numerous inconsistencies" in the shooting's "cover story," said that "This is another case where Israel has chosen violence and terrorism where their bullying in Washington has failed."
