    Oh and Mr. President, if the rebels in the Middle East are so comparable to the Jews of the Exodus, why did the present day rebels in Egypt carry signs depicting Mubarak with horns and a mogan-David on his forehead? Why was the first thing they did in their "revolution" shooting the guard to the Israeli embassy in Egypt in the Eye? Why did the rebels in Yemen run straight to their ancient Synagogue and burn it down? Mr. President, we appreciate you having a seder, don't get us wrong, what we'd appreciate a little more is you showing some support for our right to exist as a nation.
