    The right wing Jews who are against Obama equate being against Israel's current right wing government as being anti Israel and anti semitic. Jewish Americans who work for or who voted for Obama are routinely slandered with accusations of being self haters, anti Israel and even anti semites. To the right wing if you are for a two State solution you hate Israel. What these right wing fanatics cannot seem to understand is that just because someone does not agree with the Likud party that does NOT make them anti Israel or an enemy of Israel. Although U.S. economic and military aid to Israel under Obama has increased apparently Obama committed the "sin" of asking for a settlement freeze, thus he is branded an enemy of Israel. The TRUE enemies of Israel are those who believe that the status quo and taking more and more Palestinian land is sustainable and that Israel can remain a democracy by continuing its present policies. The right wing and their extreme religious allies are the ones destroying Israel, NOT Obama and NOT the majority of the Diaspora who want a two State solution and an end to the Orthodox determining who they think is a Jew.
