    as a people, our heritage and civilization of Judaism, and our connection to our ancestral homeland of Eretz Israel (Land of Israel). At the time, Mr. Obama erased 4,000 years of Jewish history, perceived us only as individual Jews, and denied our historic, ethical and legal right to our ancestral homeland of Eretz Israel. Indeed, after the speech, Mr. Obama insulted our leaders time and again and trashed some of the most important symbols of Jewish renewed sovereignty in our homeland. And, time and again, he and Ms. Clinton demanded of us, Jews, to limit our living space on earth only because we were Jewish; clearly,a racist demand. It appear that Mr. Obama has changed his views by 180 degrees. He now: 1. Recognizes the Jewish people as a people 2. Acknowledges our people's historic continuous presence and connection to our homeland for the past 4,000 years 3. Accepts Israel's right to be, to exist as the sovereign nation-state of the Jewish people based on the Jewish people's historic, ethical and legal right to do so, and within secure boundaries 4. Refuses to must not dwell throughout Eretz Israel 5. Shows respect and appreciation, even liking, to some of Israel's freely elected leaders, and demonstrated respect to some of Israel's symbols of Jewish sovereignty in the Jewish people's homeland. Can he now translate the above newly found knowledge into Arabic...??
