'Obama needs to wake up and smell the roses; Americans stand with Israel'
Americans are reportedly sending nearly 10,000 yellow roses to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a sign of friendship following what the effort's organizers are calling "the worst treatment from any president in American history."
As WND reported, following a meeting last month in which President Obama walked out on Netanyahu and the Israeli delegation, WND columnist Janet Porter of Faith2Action organized an The Israel Friendship Project to send roses to the prime minister as a show of American support.
Included in each dozen roses is a card that reads, "Dear Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: Be encouraged, Americans stand with you. God bless you."
The cards concludes with the biblical verse, "The Lord builds up Jerusalem," from Psalm 147:2.
Now, Porter is reporting, the response has been overwhelming, with nearly 10,000 flowers ready to be delivered by a Jerusalem florist.
"Americans are showing their support for Israel in a fresh, tangible way," said Porter in a statement. "When this historic delivery fills the offices of the prime minister – with friendship flowers on every desk and in every cubicle, the beautiful aroma of friendship may well spill over to the Knesset, Israel's parliament, and to the people of Israel.
"Soon the Prime Minister and all of Israel will know they are not alone: Israel has a beautiful friendship with people in the United States – who will be here long after this administration is gone," she added.

What a great story...God bless her & Bibi too!
wow!!! Just wow. Great way to show Americas love for Israel, and how much we deplore our Prez.
We are ashamed of our President - Dixie Chicks
For once, I agree with the Dixie Chicks!
A better response would have been 10,000 bombs on Iran.
Yep, Bibi is a great leader.
I recently posted a comment on Haaretz about how badly US citizens hate what Obozo is doing to Israel. And how much the citizens are behind Israel now.
The Christians in the West are the best friend Israel has in the world. Our Pols in DC are not, unfortunately. The destiny of the US and Israel are forever intertwined. Forever!
Another in hundreds of examples of how Obama/Soetoro/Dunham is ‘shoring up America’s position in the world’.
This fool is just making friends all over the place.
That is cool. I’m so glad to know that he’ll know and so will Israel.
Thanks for posting this! I must have missed it on the nightly news.;) What a great story - very impressive - 10,000 flowers!
Go Americans! Go Bibi!
Great quote here from the Jerusalem Watchman:
Oh, no matter how powerful the nations, how influential, how deceitfully diplomatic or belligerently boastful; neither the power of the White House nor the power of a nuclear bomb amounts to anything Israel need fear. Mighty as they seem, these nations are doomed to disappear, to destruction, to everlasting nothingness.
I read the other evening that Netanyahu refused the delivery because he was afraid it would offend the administration/Obama. (haven’t read the entire article yet). What changed I wonder...
I read that too. Obama is the most ill-mannered punk to occupy the WH.
How sad that he worried that accepting the flowers would insult 0bama who has showed him utter disrespect. I wonder what this says about Bibi.
A lot of lobbying (and much praying) the PM’s office, from the flower shop owner, and from several at the JPost. PM Netanyahu has now agreed to receive them, should take place Thursday, will be in news (Israeli) Friday (but might not hit USSA’s state run media :).
Well, Bibi's right about Obama, the Narcissist being insulted that Americans would support a Jew he has snubbed. As far as Bibi trying not to offend those Americans and others who think like them, I was offended at first, but I'm thinking it shows the dire straits in which Israel finds itself.
I can't help thinking that we are on the eve of a very large Mideast war, perhaps a war even greater than that.
I can only see mass death with this president in the WH and I think Bibi wants to avoid that but he must play to Obama's narcissism. The problem is that there's no way to overcome Obama's prejudices.
