Tensions between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have smoothed and warmed, if body language experts watching the two leaders interact this week are to be believed.
And yet, the president still feels closer to Mr. Peres, Ms. Stein Teer says in Ynet.
"As Obama got off the plane, there were two very interesting hugs," she said. "With Netanyahu, it was a handshake and a half hug. With Peres, he held him with both hands and hugged him. The hug he gave Peres was warmer, and you saw that President Obama has great respect, warmth and appreciation for him."
