NEW YORK President Barack Obama is reassuring Jewish supporters that his administration is committed to the security of Israel. He says: We dont compromise when it comes to Israels security.
Obama was speaking to a group of campaign contributors at the Upper East Side home of Jack Rosen, a prominent businessman and chairman of the American Jewish Congress. Obama commented after Rosen mentioned concerns within the Jewish community about the U.S.-Israeli relationship.

It’s mind-boggling to think they’d believe the words coming out of his mouth....errr...teleprompter.
i suppose this might work for O if the audience was comprised of those suffering from amnesia that covered events from January of 2009 on...........
we know he won’t compromise when it comes to Israel’s security.
They do it his way, or they go it alone.
Which is why we are going to be left out of the loop watching what Israel does, on CNN like everyone else.
Is this a joke??
Obama’s the Joker!
And they believe him.
Liar in chief
LOL! Hilarious that the Democrats think Jews are that stupid. Not only is Israel "our most important ally" but that Obama "has been the most supportive ever of Israel"? OMG! I have this picture in my mind of the Jewish community bent over saying, "THANK YOU SIR MAY I HAVE ANOTHER!!"
Reporter or perhaps donor: “Mr president! Mr President! Would you care to square that statement with your past actions?” Yeah, right, like someone would actually ask him that.
I don’t think there is anything more stupid and gullible than a Jewish liberal donor to the Food Stamp President’s re-election. Well maybe there is: a Jewish liberal that would pay to attend one of the Food Stamp Preisdent’s teleprompter speeches.
Compromise with Israel’s enemies on Israel’s security which he’d pull in a heartbeat.
American Jews, willing to close their eyes and suck a certain member, forever and always. American Jews, the last ones to defend Israel. American Jews, willing to read about Israel in history books, rather than abandon Zero. They disgust me.
Matthe 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
No background info...like how he's actually BETRAYING the state of Israel (well, unless we hear the mysterious explosions in Iran are of US origin).
That said, and I'm going to take A LOT of flak for this: I support the US support of the "Arab Spring". Maybe that's Obama policy and maybe it's left over Bush policy. I dunno.
But by allowing the people of these countries to determine their own fate, good or bad, we're on the right side of history IMHO.
Now, if they emerge as terrorist states or enemy states of any kind, we must take appropriate action to protect US and our allies interests.
Overall, Obama has not been much different on the foreign policy front than Bush...in substance.
He's been radically different than Bush in appearance and rhetoric.
Maybe you could consider it a donation to FR to come up with a witticism describing just how “sincere” Obama is being?
Heh. They’re boned.
Don’t believe your lieing eyes, President Obama is Israel’s friend, despite what he says and does opposing Israel’s benefit.
Did this come with a laugh track?
As one of the many Jews on this website, and one who has been here since 1998, I am offended by your gross generalization. You are going to see how wrong you are in November.
Yeah, and the Jews of Europe believed it when they were told that they were going to rest camps, to work in the fresh air and frolic in the sunshine.
All evidence to the contrary...
No. he won’t compromise but that word cuts two ways. He won’t compromise on the beliefs and determinations that arise from his Islamic heritage and/or identity.
On this question I would love to be wrong in November, but based on voting history, I won’t be. Unfortunately my generalization is about 80 or 90 percent accurate.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
100 bucks says your wrong.
He already has.
Like I said, I would rather be wrong. But given the voting history of American Jews, what makes you so sure? When was the last time Jewish Americans voted for a Republican or Conservative for President?
And I have no desire to take your money. :-)
But we knew that. :’) Thanks Free ThinkerNY.
I don’t deny that there are conservative Jews, just not very many of them. And American Jews in particular are slow to come to the defense of Israel. The vast majority of American Jews will vote for Obama - to their shame. The same Obama who works every day to sell out Israel. Obama takes Jewish votes in 2012 for granted - he knows he owns them. And he is right. Sorry if you don’t like it, but it’s true. Look at my posts on this topic: I have said I want to be wrong, but come November I won’t be.
Now stop with the name calling, and show me factually where I am wrong. I am glad you are on the conservative side, now go sway American Jews to vote against Obama. You will have the tremendous satisfaction of calling me a pig, and proving me wrong. I will gladly take that. And BTW whose side do you think I am on?
So bitch about me, and watch your fellow Jews help sell the future of this country and of Israel down the river. I think my description of the voting behavior of American Jews is pretty apt.
You address none of the things I assert about American Jews. I have come to expect a little more intellectual heft from my Jewsih acquaintances.
You are a waste of time. Done.

Obama: The Anti-Israel President
Grading Obama on Israel policy
Fox All Star panel grades Obama on Israeli policy.
Krauthammer said, This president has done more to delegitimize and undermine Israels position in the world than any other president and he did it by arriving on the scene and imposing and demanding of Israel a freeze on settlements, including the building of the Jewish homes in the Jewish quarter of Jerusalem of all places, something that had never been precondition in 17 years of negotiations.
