According to Haaretz, President Obama's 2012 campaign field director has been selected to be a part of a "five-man Obama team" that will run a campaign against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
As Caroline Glick--Israeli journalist and Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center--notes, the far-left Israeli news outlet "for whatever reason… chose not to translate this article in its English edition." Fortunately, Independent Media Review and Analysis did:
The revelation, PJMedia observes, stands in direct contrast with President Obama's declaration in his State of the Union that he has no more campaigns to run:Foreign Funding Bankrolls Anti-Netanyahu Campaign – Flies in 5-Man Obama Team

Haaretz reporter Roi Arad revealed in an article in the Hebrew edition today that the foreign funded organization, "One Voice”, is bankrolling the V-2015 campaign to defeat Binyamin Netanyahu’s national camp in the March 2015 Knesset Elections.
One indication of the generous financing is that it has now flown in a team of five American campaign experts (including Jeremy Bird, the Obama campaign's national field director) who will run the campaign out of offices taking up the ground floor of a Tel Aviv office building.
V-2015 is careful not to support a specific party - rather “just not Bibi”. As such, the foreign funds pouring into the campaign are not subject to Israel’s campaign finance laws.
Here is Glick's post:'No more campaigns to run' in America, at least.

Obama won't meet Benjamin Netanyahu - בנימין נתניהו in Washington when he addresses the Joint Houses of Congress in March because of Netanyahu's visit's proximity to the Israeli elections. And Obama, of course believes in protocol and propriety which is why he won't get involved.
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.
By the way, the link below is to a report of the article in Haaretz that I linked to in the previous post in Hebrew. For whatever reason, Haaretz chose not to translate this article in its English edition.
