Lopez: How bad would a President Obama be for Israel? Why should that question matter to Americans?
Glick: Senator Barack Obama would be bad for Israel most of all because he refuses to acknowledge that there is a jihad being waged against the free world. Indeed, he refuses to acknowledge that there is such a thing as an enemy in international affairs. And as a consequence, he is unable to understand what an ally is. As the U.S.s most stalwart ally in the Middle East, and as the frontline state in the global jihad, Israel will likely suffer greatly if Senator Obama is elected to the White House.
There are several reasons that Americans should care about the fact that an Obama White House will be hostile towards Israel. First, when Islamists perceive Israel as weak they become emboldened. And when they become emboldened, they tend to attack not only Israel but the U.S. as well. Indeed, some of the largest attacks against the U.S. like the Marine barracks bombing in Lebanon in 1983 came when the U.S. was most hostile towards Israel.

Barack Obama: First fully neutered President of the United States of America.
You're forgetting Carter, though your point still stands.
"...he is unable to understand what an ally is"
Wow - a very good point!
Close but wrong. Of course, the author can’t say the truth, namely that Obama does know what an enemy and an ally are, he’s just ON THE OTHER SIDE. So good piece.
Warning! This is a high-volume ping list.
“First Caliph of The Former United States”. This must not be allowed to pass...
Ooops. My bad, I forgot about her.
