FILE - In this July 29, 2012 file photo, Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney meets with Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem. It is a taboo for Israeli leaders to give even the slightest hint of favoritism in politics in the United States, Israel's closest ally. So some Israelis are squirming over a perception that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is siding with Republican Mitt Romney in the U.S. presidential race, in the belief he would take a harder line on archenemy Iran. That, some fear, is putting Israel’s alliance with Washington at risk if Barack Obama wins. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak, File)
