    Read the thousands of vile, hate filled posts Israelis and right wing American Jews on Israeli internet sites every day. They call Obama a Muslim (he is NOT and never was), call him an anti-semite (He is NOT and never was), call him an enemy of Israel (He is NOT and never was) and claim he is out to destroy Israel. (He is NOT). These are the facts: The Obama adminstration has INCREASED aid to Israel, military and intelligence cooperation between America and Israel is at its highest level EVER, and Obama has protected Israel in the United Nations EVERY TIME. What the right wing Jews refuse to accept is that Obama called the settlements illegal. They ARE illegal and there is not one country on this planet who disagrees with that. He said the Palestinians have suffered too and that caused the right wing to go ballistic. Having the experience of a war America should never have started with Iraq that took the lives of 5,000 Americans and badly wounded more than 35.000 and with the economy teetering, Obama is not eager to start a war with Iran - and neither is any other country on this planet except the current right wing government in Israel. Because Obama will not grovel before Netanyahu he is called a Muslim, the enemy, and an anti semite. Nothing could be further from the truth and there is a sickness in Israel and among right wing American Jews that unless you agree with everything Israel demands you are an enemy. That sickness is what will, in the end, harm Israel more than anyone else. I am a Jewish American who voted for Obama in 2008 and will do so again in 2012 and all of my Jewish friends here will be doing the same. We are Americans and are first loyalty is to our own country.
