    I (as an American), think that Obama does the obvious things to "support" Israel, to draw Jewish votes in the US. He, however, treats Israeli officials like dirt when they come here, he does everything to support/recognize Israels enemies. He recently met with terrorist leaders (Islamic Brotherhood, etc) in the Whitehouse, he hosts Eid (spelling?) dinners and other Islamic celebreations at the whitehouse. Based on his actions, around 40 % of Americans think he is a Muslim. During the 2008 campaign he said, ."...as president (or 'if I were president', not sure of the exact wording on this part), I would do EVERYTHING IN MY POWER (emphasis mine) to see that Iran does not get nuclear weapons'. Tell me, what exactly has he done? If this is "everything in my power", he doesn't have much! I support Israel (have spent some time there as well), but I believe our president, along with his other shortcomings, down deep, does not!
