National Review editor Rich Lowry said Sunday on "Meet the Press" that President Barack Obama's feelings toward Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu go far beyond a little dislike.

Lowry told the panel that ever since Netanyahu gained a third consecutive victory in the Israeli elections, left-wing politicians and the White House are throwing a "temper tantrum."

"President Obama hates [Netanyahu] with a burning passion," Lowry said. "It's as if Ted Cruz were the leader of a major ally."

"I think it's a two-way street," host Chuck Todd chimed in.
