i really appreciate this article, burston, it's well thought out and you make some good points. but the real reasons many israelis dislike obama are stupid - like his muslim name. mark identified these reasons quite well - if you ask the average israeli WHY they dislike obama, they will not be able to give you an intelligent answer and argue for it - even if they are intelligent, educated israelis. mark lincoln, you often make good sense here, though you usually seem dramatically disconnected to our culture, motivations, etc. - this time you are almost completely right. except for the democrat thing - israel would support the right democrat all the way, even if many american jews in israel are right wing. i'm certain about this.
