Tycoon Sheldon Adelson issued a sharp attack, Thursday, against United States President Barack Obama. In an op-ed piece on the Website, the American edition of Yisrael Hayom, Adelson referred to a piece by Haim Saban in the New York Times in which Saban said, "Americans who support Israel should take the president at his word." Adelson asked, "But is that true? Should we take him at his word?" and continued, "No, not when Israel confronts the threat of nuclear annihilation by Iran."

Adelson went on to list repeated instances of "a lack of sympathy - or even outright hostility - toward Israel", the most recent being Obama's failure to meet with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu at the United Nations and his prevention of a real tightening of sanctions against the Tehran government. Adelson warned, "With a second term the president won't have fears of electoral accountability and will act upon his true feelings toward Israel....

This President has stayed concretely true to his promises and core beliefs; more, perhaps, than most of his predecessors.

Unfortunately, his core is collectivism.

Also unfortunately, he and the media kept his core beliefs from the voters.

0bama's "word" means nothing. Once a liar, always a liar. But it's OK for Hussein, because he's a muzzie!

This President broke most of the promises he spoke of when he
ran against Hillary and McCain. His word to his own base was
broken time and again. He broke his word to his friends and
supporter. What can Israel expect.

To Israel just months ago he wanted them to return to 1967
vulnerable and indefensible lines. Obama won’t give Israel
bunker busters they need when Hezbolah attacks.

Four years of failed Iran policy has given Iran 4 extra
years to get closer to having a nuke weapon and the enriched
uranium to supply it with fissile material.

No, Obama has shown Israel hostility. He has treated its leader with disdain and not supported an ally that 65% of
Americans view as a friend.

My take on Barry Hussein Soetoro is that he is a result of affirmative action supported by the Saudis.
