Here’s a better idea, cut ties with the White House, and urge jews to back Mitt Romney.

They’d have more luck predicting lottery numbers than getting the O administration to do that.

the Simon Wiesenthal Center said the US could not pretend to conduct “business as usual” when the group made such statements.

I agree although I'm not sure the first step should be to cut all relations (that should be the last step, but one that we should take if necessary). I think we should meaningfully sanction such behavior with more to follow if Cairo continues down the extreme Islamic path. We need a mentality in the WH similar to the Reagan administration who used intelligence and behind the scenes influence to help countries defeat their own fascist regimes.

Have Obama even condemned such talk? That would be the least that a president could do.

We are witting very serious and dangerous conditions in the ME, directly traced to the incompetence of this administration foreign policy.

When NYC or Miami is nuked will anyone be around to know who to blame?

Breaking ties with a state achieves little. All you do is put out your own eyes within the nation.

Best to keep direct strained relations, than to cut off diplomatic contact.

Guess they have not ‘read’ the ring yet? Or know who Obama considers his friends?
