    Assistant Rabbi Rabbi Dan Dorsch's blog is a shallow interpretation of the situation. As a U.S. citizen, he would do better to focus on and prioritize the tragic fact that the US has - the greatest population of incarcerated citizens in the world! He should ask himself why this is so. With the US economy the way it is and a gambling den that is known as "Wall Street", there is serious danger to the stability of the US and its long-term survival as a democratic country. Obama's junket to Jerusalem had nothing to do with peace. It is an effort to re-assure the US that its "aircraft carrier" in the Middle East will continue to be on standby to help protect mankind from the serious threats to world peace - emanating from the rogue states in this region. That's what we are here in Israel...an airfield for the USAF. Keep on enjoying your visits to Israel. As an Israeli Holocaust survivor, I feel quite safe here.
