During Barack Obama's recent State of the Union speech, he told America he had no more campaigns to run. But it seems that statement flies in the face of reports that an organization known as One Voice has brought in what has been called a "five-man Obama team" to defeat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Included in that five-man team is Jeremy Bird, the national field director for Obama's 2012 campaign, Dr. Aaron Lerner, Director of the Independent Media Review and Analysis, said Monday, citing a report at Haaretz.
That group, Dr. Lerner added, will run the anti-Netanyahu effort out of offices taking up the ground floor of a Tel Aviv office building. The campaign, known as V-2015, is careful not to support a specific party, but is working to ensure Netanyahu does not win Israel's March election...not subject to that country's campaign finance laws.
"And Obama, of course believes in protocol and propriety which is why he won't get involved," she wrote on Facebook. "No, he's not getting involved at all. He's just sending his 2012 field campaign manager to Israel to run a campaign to defeat Netanyahu. That's all. No interference whatsoever."
News of the team's arrival in Israel comes just days after the administration accused House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, of breaking protocol by inviting Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congress.
And it's no secret that Obama doesn't like Netanyahu. "You're tired of him -- what about me? I have to deal with him every day," Obama said after former French President Nicolas Sarkozy called the Israeli prime minister a "liar."
According to its webpage, the "One Voice" movement boasts a number of powerful partners. Among the partners listed is Google, the Harvard Negotiation and Mediation Clinical Program and the United States State Department.

Perhaps Mossad could come to our mutual rescue.....
As I recall, Clinton’s minions tried to do the same thing during his reign. I believe they had involvement in Israel and in Britain.
American leaders working hard working hard again, to install the government they prefer. This will bite us back one day.
If I were Bibi I would pound the message that Obama - a foreign official is specifically interfering with a Israel's sovereign election.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think Obama is held in high regard in Israel.
This should be against the law,if it isn’t. Shameful behavior from our cry baby prez, as usual.
Deport them for tampering in a national election.

Didn’t find the Clinton info I was looking for, but there was out there.
It would be a shame if “something” were to happen to them.
Obama is a petty, bitter, $hitty little man.
We will see if Obama, the Muslim, can replicate that effort. I have read that the Israeli electorate is not the same as then, so hopefully, not.
Obama? Working to defeat Netanyahu?
Absurd. Preposterous. Why you might as well tell me he supports and funds Hamas terrorists and Palestians.
Obamas people worked for one side to influence an election, or to support coups in Iraq, Ukraine, Syria, Libya, Egypt, France and England. He started the movement in Russia and resulted in our NGOs being expelled.
Someday, someone, somewhere,, might take offense to this.
I hope not too.
What the Israeli people truly want, is up to them. They don’t need to be gamed by the likes of the Clintons or the Obamas.
Look how well his Muslim Brotherhood worked in Egypt.
Israel can’t kick them out for this?
You both nailed it. Hoping the chunk of the liberal Israei dumb a$$e$ don’t try to kick Lucy’s football again.
