Skip to comments.Obama: Let's Renew the Bond with Israel

U.S. President Barack Obama on Thursday released a video greeting to the Jewish people in honor of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.
Obama suggested that the New Year was a time to repair his country's relationship with Israel, at the end of a week in which he and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had been at odds over Iran's nuclear program.
As we look forward to the beginning of the Jewish High Holidays Sunday night, I want to extend my warmest wishes to all those celebrating the New Year, Obama said.
This is a joyful time for millions of people around the world. But Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are also opportunities for reflection. They represent a chance to take stock of our lives and look forward to the coming year with clear eyes and renewed purpose.
In that spirit, the Jewish Tradition teaches us that one of the most important duties we have during this period is the act of reconciliation. Were called to seek each other out and make amends for those moments when we may not have lived up to our values as well as we should.
At a time when our public discourse can too often seem harsh; when society too often focuses on what divides us instead of what unites us; I hope that Americans of all faiths can take this opportunity to reach out to those who are less fortunate; to be tolerant of our neighbors; and to recognize ourselves in one another. And as a nation, let us be mindful of those who are suffering, and renew the unbreakable bond we share with our friends and allies including the State of Israel.

Israel's bond with the US is both breakable and broken. Our bond with G-d is neither. Here's a little song about it:
That's the bond we renew on Rosh Hashana, not diplomatic alliances, which come and go.
Please stop posting stories from ‘The Onion’...oh, wait...
And the cookie man hopped on to the foxes back!
Seriously? How much more can we take????
Israel should spit in his face.
Said the spider to the fly.
Until after the election.....wink wink
“Please take me back, baby. I swear I’ll never hit you again!”
My head is going to explode.
Is that title correct?
I can’t imagine him saying that!
This, OTOH, I can:
Obama: Let’s Renew the Bondage of Israel
Who does he think he’s kidding?
Obama: The check is in the mail!
Two powerful statements...equally true!
LOL is this guy serious..he spits in Netanyahu’s face by refusing to even see him yet he has the nerve to say that he has a bond with Israel..Let’s “Renew” the bond..hey Obama, we ALWAYS had a bond with Israel until you took power you schmuck!!
“Hey baby, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean it. I don’t know why I did it. You know I still love you. Gimme just one more chance.”
Bibi knows the truth...and, by extension (Bibi and Mitt are old friends), so does Romney.
Most likely what’s intended.
Obama treats Israel the way McCain treats conservatives - sweet talk and kisses when support is needed, punches and kicks after the need passes.
LOL. Thread winner.
