Israelis have good reason to hate Hussain Obama, known fondly by Hamas as Abu Hussain. His first 2 years were spent trying to harm Israel anyway he could every chance he got because that went down well with the Islamic world which he has been desperately trying to reach out to even going as far as making Muslim outreach and official aim of NASA. Its only recently since the elections started getting closer he has suddenly decided he wants to be Israel's friend... in other words there are more Jewish votes up for grabs than Muslim ones and who Obama is having to act a little more pro Israel. If the palestinians had gone to the UN after Obama first took office when he had Congress in his pocket and both the world and America loved him he would probably have voted in favor at the General Assembly and for sure he would never even consider using the veto in the Security Council. I think its safe to say if Obama wins the next election he is going to go after Israel guns blazing and show no mercy.
