You mean like Obama's interference in the Israeli elections?
And, once again, you appear to be significantly twisting what facts are available in order to conform to your personal biases and agenda. When I Googled "Obama interference in Israeli elections" (since I don't recall ever hearing of this before), all that came up were the "usual suspect" right-wing websites, reporting on a congressional subcommittee report on State Department funds given to an Israeli NGO. The articles report that the State Department gave $350k in grant funding (grants the State Department was offering, as it does all the time, and for which various organizations applied) to OneVoice, an Israeli organization which works to promote a two-state solution for Israel and the Palestinians. After the grant funding was approved, the money was dispersed, and the period of time for which the grant funding was intended had passed, OneVoice was collaborated with another group, Victory 2015, which did have as its main purpose defeated Netanyahu in the elections.
That was not the reason for which US funds were given to OneVoice, and Obama had nothing specific to do with the grant funding, which was an established and ongoing program within the State Department. And even the right-wing websites falling all over themselves to publicize this admitted that "a congressional investigation into a U.S.-funded Israeli NGO found no evidence that the group had used the funds to influence the tightly-contested 2015 Israeli election."
State Dep’t Silent on Key Finding of Inquiry Into US-Funded Anti-Netanyahu NGO
“The Subcommittee found no evidence that OneVoice spent grant funds to influence the 2015 Israeli elections. Soon after the grant period ended [November 2014], however, OneVoice used the campaign infrastructure and resources built, in part, with State Department grants funds to support V15 ... OneVoice did not use State Department funds directly for political activities, or seek State Department grants in anticipation of the Israeli elections, but it did use the campaign infrastructure and resources that it had built, in part, with State Department funds to support a campaign to defeat Prime Minister Netanyahu in the 2015 elections,”

Obama State Dept: $35 K For Campaign Infrastructure Used Against Netanyahu In Israel Election
The worst the Republicans were able to come up with was that the State Department didn't have sufficient safeguards in place to prevent that particular sequence of events happening.
Most reasonable people would, I believe, consider that scenario a far cry from Obama
"interfer(ing) in the Israeli elections." But, hey, don't start letting the facts get in your way now -- keep living in your right-wing fantasy land.
Or is there some other
instance of Obama "interfer(ing) in Israeli elections" to which you're referring? If so, I'd be glad to see some documentation.
