    Maybe Obama is heeding the first Presidents advice on "Favorite Nations".. From George Washington's Farewell address 1796 ...a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists....leads also to concessions to the favorite nation of privileges denied to others which is apt doubly to injure the nation making the concessions..it gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluded citizens (who devote themselves to the favorite nation), facility to betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country.. The ZOA,AIPAC,ADL and the Israel Project et al. all fit the definition "ambitious, corrupted, or deluded citizens" who "betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country". And we are sick of them.
