    As a US Senator in 2006 and as a Presidential Candidate in 2008 President Obama has previously visited the highly geo-strategic land bridge between three continents, the Holy Land, the area chosen by G-d as His eyes roved over the whole earth seeking a land for His covenant people as is revealed in the Hebrew scriptures. It is a very tiny physical area with an exceedingly large spiritual purpose and any ramifications in a few square meters over there can be felt worldwide. President Obama has read for himself the biblical story of the Land of Israel, the City of Jerusalem, and the Jewish People and when he flies over the land in a guarded Israeli tour and sees and relives in his imagination the dramatic 3000 year panorama of Israel's history he will realize the poignancy of his visit to Israel as the highest ruler of the current world power and yet sense his place well below a much higher power guiding and guarding this land (and guiding and guarding his family as believers back home) and he won't do anything detrimental against the swell of unfolding biblical prophecy of the lone Jewish State's tenacious modern revival in its ancient land as he tries to mediate peace between the Israelis and Palestinians.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
