    If any Jew or friend of Israel, irrespective of their political affiliation thinks this President is either a friend or even an honest broker between Israel and the Arab world; I have a bridge in Manhattan I’d like to sell them. Obama, in his short tenure as chief executive has done more to weaken his close “ally” Israel than any other American President since the Jewish State’s inception. As the bellicose Mullahs of Iran are on the verge of going nuclear and possessing a sophisticated delivery system capable of hitting Israel in less than ten minutes; in a classic case of “Rome burned while Nero fiddled,” Obama’s priorities rest with the Palestinian question and weakening the Jewish State through the defunct land for peace non-process from which Israel has never seen an ounce of reciprocity. This audaciously arrogant man has incessantly delved into the internal affairs of Israel while giving the terrorists in both Fatah and Hamas essentially a free pass.
