WASHINGTON (JTA) -- President Obama discussed the Middle East and education policy in a pre-Rosh Hashanah call with rabbis.
Close to 900 rabbis listened in on Obama's call Thursday afternoon, which was arranged by the Reform movement's Religious Action Center. Obama has made such calls since 2009, the first year of his presidency.
He fielded two questions, one about what the changes of the Arab Spring mean for Israel, the other about funding for schools. Obama said the United States was committed to Israel. He noted close U.S.-Israel cooperation and his efforts to isolate Iran as long as it advances its suspected nuclear weapons program.
In remarks obtained by the Washington Jewish Week, Obama said: "The most important thing we can do to stabilize the strategic situation for Israel is if we can actually resolve the Palestinian-Israeli crisis because that's what feeds so much of the tumult in Egypt. That's what I think has created the deep tension between Turkey and Israel and Turkey has historically been a friend and ally of Israel's. That's why we think direct negotiations are so critical."

Blah! Blah Blah!.....Forget your Arab Spring, Dip stick!...
We need a United States November!
We have seen how credulous acceptance of the "peaceful intentions" of a tyrant worked out in the end.
Has a President ever changed his tune so quickly?
What worries me is that this Maladministration has been stacked from top to bottom with anti-Israel anti-semites. That will not change until they are FIRED.
Wow, first Newsweek about Obama giving Israel missles and now this. Sounds like the DNC is REALLY worried but it’s a bit too late. Few are going to be convinced. Obama bowed to one too many Arab dictators and it’s all caught on camera for the GOP to remind folks in paid political advertisements.
Replacing the Tannakh with Karl Marx and/or the scheming Otto Von Bismarck (he originated the idea of the welfare state) is hardly the way that people working on the most decent society should follow.
Reform Jews are disappearing. Every 100 Reform Jews will have only 21 total Jewish grandchildren.
Israel will be safe until the election..then all bets are off
