Obama Heckled During Speech to Israeli People
Weekly Standard ^ | 3/21/13 | Daniel Halper

Posted on 03/21/2013 9:24:47 AM PDT by Nachum

"This is part of the lively debate we talked about," Obama said. "This is good."

He added, "You know, I have to say, we actually arranged for that because it made me feel at home. You know, I wouldn't feel comfortable if I didn't have at least one heckler."

The heckler appeared to be screaming in Hebrew, though it's not clear what he was saying.

UPDATE: The White House pool reporter adds:

There was a heckler about 15 minutes into remarks. Man standing to Obama’s left back near center press platform began shouting in Hebrew. A reliable Hebrew speaker seated near pool says the shouting was about Pollard. We presume calling for his release. Pool couldn’t see what happened to the heckler.

The Jews have faced the Egyptians, the Babylonians, the Assyrians, the Romans and the Nazis. A pipsqueak like Obama is not going to quiet or intimidate them.

Flipping past faux news this AM which was covering obamas’ speech to someone and I thought I heard him say that the Palestinians will determine Israels’ future. I didn’t stay to hear more.

“You know, I have to say, we actually arranged for that...”

I used to know a guy that was a pathological liar, just like Obama. He would lie even when there was no reason to, like what he had for lunch an hour earlier, etc.

I becomes impossible for people like Obama to tell the truth, even on the most trivial of things like this.

WHAT? You mean some Jews don’t like/disagree with him? Oh, we’re talking about Israeli Jews. Not US Jews who are, for some reason, self loathing in lot of cases. The ones that would scramble to get on the train when they hear “Alllll abbbboard”.

CUFI member by the way.

Obama is hardly a pipsqueak as far as Israel is concerned.

He is helping to put the Middle East in the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood and other radicals who, after being armed to the teeth by Obama, will then set out to wage war on Israel while the U.S. refuses to come to her aid.

Obama has seen to it that Israel's once great ally is an ally no more (even our Sec Def is an antisemite and the Dir of CIA is a muslim).

The coming war represents another great existential threat to the Nation of Israel.

“Obama is hardly a pipsqueak as far as Israel is concerned.”

What I mean is, in the big scheme of things, the people of Israel have seen far greater foes. The Jews have been around for over four thousand years and have been removed from the very same land before. They were scattered to the winds for almost two thousand of those years and yet reappeared as one people after World War II. Obama has a very high view of himself and sees himself as some great historical figure, but the Jews have seen many such men come and go.

I knew what you meant and I agree.

It's just this time will, I am afraid, be Armageddon.

BS. Barry tightly controls his public appearances and does not deal well with dissent.

Pollard should leave his (hopefully cold and damp) cell only in a cheap pine box.
