In May Barack Obama urged Israel to hand over half of Jerusalem, the Wailing Wall, The Temple Mount, Old Jerusalem, and the tomb of Jesus Christ to the Hamas-Fatah terrorist alliance.
Obama thought this would bring peace.
Hamas and Fatah leaders met again this week to discuss the reconciliation process between the two radical groups.
But, since when did facts matter to Barack Obama? Last night Barack Obama told Jewish donors in New York that he has done more for Israel than all of his predecessors combined. The Jerusalem Post reported, via Israel Matsav:
US President Barack Obama defended his policy toward Israel on Wednesday at a political fundraiser where a prominent American Jewish leader mentioned concerns in the Jewish community about the US-Israeli relationship.
Obama, who has been criticized by some of Israels US supporters for being tough on a close ally and has had strained ties with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, offered strong assurances of his commitment to Israels security.
I try not to pat myself too much on the back, but this administration has done more for the security of the state of Israel than any previous administration, Obama said. We dont compromise when it comes to Israels security and that will continue.
The president was speaking to campaign donors at the Manhattan home of Jack Rosen, chairman of the American Jewish Congress, who said it would be remiss for me not to say there are many in the Jewish community who are concerned about the relationship between Israel and the United States.
Rosen added, however, that America has never been as supportive of the state of Israel as President Obama and his administration.
The White House wants to shore up support among Jewish voters for Obamas 2012 re-election bid. He won nearly eight of every 10 Jewish voters in 2008, but a slip would jeopardize his re-election drive in battleground states like Florida and Pennsylvania.
Dont pat yourself on the back, Barack.

For all his “complexity”, intellect, cultured ways, etc. (ad nauseum per the media), Obummer can be summed up in one 4-letter word: LIAR.
There are two things wrong with that statement...
Our humble POTUS. What a POS.
I agree, zer0 has been EXTREMELY to the MAX supportive of the state of Israel... with the premise that the support is for an Israel situated 50-100 miles to the WEST of its current location.
He just says what TOTUS tells him to say. TOTUS is screwin with him.
It’ll be TOTUS’s fault if POTUS doesn’t get re-elected...
From what I can see, BO did not use the word "combined".
IMHO, we don't do ourselves any favors when we embellish - describing a liar - by in turn, lying about what he said.
Good thing I haven’t eaten yet or I would have thrown up.
2) American Jews who willingly occupy the same space as Hussein are far far more interested in social climbing and government contracts, than they are about the survival of a tiny, remote place to which they feel no connection, ex- the occasional rhetorical flourish.
Yep - they’ll walk out of a speech by “ax-man-did-a-job”, but listen to this cr@p...
"IMHO, we don't do ourselves any favors when we embellish - describing a liar - by in turn, lying about what he said."
"We"? I didn't write it.
(At any rate, the headline itself doesn't suggest that, and the actual quote is contained within the post, so I take the additional word to be a mistake, rather than an attempted "lie", as you state).
Somebody finally said it....thanks!
Lying again I see..
When I said “we”, that includes “me” of course.
Whether or not “combined” was “mistakenly” added is irrelevant - he mis-characterized BO’s statement.
“We” (as conservatives) need to hold ourselves to a higher standard.
Please take some responsibility for “your” post.
Anyone who falls for this jug-earred marxist’s bald-faced lies cannot be too smart, even if they’ve managed to make a lot of money.
Some may ask, “if you’re so smart, why aren’t you rich?”
I prefer to ask, “if you’re so smart, why did you vote for a Commie Punk?”
