    A brilliant and compassionate appeal and expression of gratitude to a great friend of Israel. Thank you, Yussi. Now we both don't have to roam the the Eastern Ice desert of Greenland until the next election. It was a great and happy day for many of us. American Jews overwhelmingly supported President Obama! who is indeed a great friend of Israel. He and the Democratic Party wholeheartedly support the values if a liberal and democratic Zionism. Bibi and his American financial supporter and mentor, gambling casino billionaire, Sheldon Addison tried their best to to distort and vilify the profound support this President has given us. Rabin is tragicaaly gone, murdered by a fanatic religious nationalist, and Peres is nearly 90. In the best of worlds, hopefully an alternative to the extreme right coalition of Lieberman and Nnetanyahu will arise and revive America's trust in us and restore the kind of Zionism which brought you and me to Israel in the first place. I am very relieved, happy and proud that PresidentObama won this election.

    from the article: So sorry, President Obama, please forgive Netanyahu
