Posted on 07/29/2009 7:23:56 PM PDT by sheikdetailfeather
Hints have begun trickling out of Washington D.C. that the Obama administration has realized that it went too far in attacking Israel, and may now be looking to take a step back. With general opposition from Israelis, street protests, and a forceful rejection from the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, the failure of Obamas approach is fairly obvious. But that doesnt mean that Israels Obama problem is over. Not by a long shot.

Obama doesn’t know who is dealing with.
He is a snake, but BiBi has handled many a snake before.
Israel should count Obama amongst its enemies.
“The Obama administrations hard line on Israel was a show of arrogance by people who assumed that they owned the American Jewish community”
Vote wise, they do.
George W. Bush, arguably the most “pro-Israel” president in American history, was able to garner only 24% of the Jewish vote in 2004. Fully 76% voted for John Kerry according to exit polls. Jews have traditionally voted overwhelmingly for Democrats since the 1930s. That didn’t change after the Second Intifada, 9/11 or the invasion of Iraq. Indeed, Bush was able to increase his Jewish support by only 5 percentage points from the 2000 election.
Absolutely nothing will change those numbers, I don’t have the numbers from the last election but I suspect they were about the same and the next election they will be about the same again. The only group more in the democrat’s pocket is black voters.
I have caught myself thinking at times that I would rather be in israel at this time in history despite the dangers that this nation faces. The reason I say this is because I see Israel as a jewel of freedom in a see of tyranny. Their people are strong, they have to be. If I am to go down, I want to be among those that fight, not amongst the apathetic and the ignorant. God Bless Israel, its leader, and its people.
Israel has no “Obama” problem, they’ll do what they need to do and tell him too bad...Israel must be able to defend itself period regardless of what Obama thinks.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
You are looking at the wrong year. In 2000 Bush/Gore 30% Jewish vote went to Pres Bush.
Don’t write off the Jewish vote. Even a”stiff-necked” people can change.
Israel isn’t the only country with an 0bama problem.
...the Obama administration has realized that it went too far in attacking Israel, and may now be looking to take a step back. With general opposition from Israelis, street protests, and a forceful rejection from the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, the failure of Obama's approach is fairly obvious. But that doesn't mean that Israel's Obama problem is over. Not by a long shot.A straight line like that, and I can't use it, it's just cruel.
