Behind the bonhomie evident between President Obama and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem on Wednesday, the Israeli leader delicately reminded his guest about Israels three millennia-old claim to the city he is visiting.
During a joint press conference at the prime ministers residence, Netanyahu opened his remarks by telling Obama, its a great pleasure to host you here in Jerusalem. He concluded them several minutes later with the words, Its a profound honor to host you, the leader of the free world, at this historic time in our ancient capital. Mr. President. Welcome to Israel, welcome to Jerusalem.
When he met with Peres earlier in the day, Obama described Jerusalem as the Eternal City, but not as Israels capital.
While campaigning for the presidency, then-Senator Obama told a pro-Israel audience in 2008 that Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel and it must remain undividedbefore rowing back the comment after P.A. chairman Mahmoud Abbas protested.

Yeah. What have the Romans ever done for us?
Obama has a mental disorder.
For the same reason he says “ta” for “to” and constantly drops the “g” from words ending in “ing”.
My thought exactly when I read that.
ROME is the “eternal city”.
I don’t think there was any “irony” intended by Obama,
I think his level of cultural literacy and even “general

About on the level of most of his voters.
He’s just that stupid.
Of course the standards that apply to you and I don’t apply
His main selling point from the get-go was that he had Megabrain understanding of everything.
Just be happy he didn't refer to as Funky J-Town...
It’s not a matter of whether or not Jews were in Israel before the Muz-slimes, but just a matter of how many thousands of years would be the most correct number.
And anyone who says otherwise is as banal, vapid, stupid, and uneducated as is our Dork-in-Chief.
But he knows the History of Islam and the Koran by heart.
Ol’ sh!t-for-brains strikes again.
Dear Benjamin, you must not give the world one inch which YHVH has not allowed. Listen _first_ to YHVH and if other voices contradict Him, then you must ignore them; you must; you will. In His obedience, in His might, not by our reasoning.
I suspect it would be like me visiting New York City and calling it the Windy City. Stupid is, as stupid does.
