    A Short-tempered Man Shouldn't Try to Clear Minefields Sending Vice President Biden on a diplomatic mission proves once more the lack of any foreign affairs experience in the Obama's White House. If Biden speaks more than 5 minutes he'll say something that worth remembering. He is everything but never a diplomat. However, this time it might be not Biden's fault. Robert Gibbs used the same word "condemn" so it comes from either Obama himself or Mitchell, who is a "friend of Israel" like Obama, Jimmy, Zbig, Rashid Halidi and others. The idea of the "J" Street that Obama visits Israel is extremely stupid, because Obama's popularity in Israel is 0%, that is still higher than Ahmadenijad's 0.0%. After anti-Israel manifesto that Obama declared in Cairo on June 4th 2009, only the enemies of Israel would insist on his visit. Besides, Obama took a Fatwa that he first will visit all Islamic countries. Anti-Israel hysteria in the US and Europe is going on for already 4 years non-stop. If it's not Sharon, than it is Gaza, when it isn't Gaza than it is settlements. The Israeli leaders have to finally grasp that Israel needs a Ministry of Information with the budget more than military. We need a TV station in English that mimics Aljazeera. Israel has innumerable enemies: the Arabs, the Muslims, the J Street, the Obamistas, the leftists, the Nazis, etc. Israel will survive, there will be other American Presidents after Obama.
