Heckler Interrupts Major Obama Speech In Israel
Yahoo News ^ | 03/21/2013 | Olivier Knox

Posted on 03/21/2013 1:58:19 PM PDT by Smittie

President Barack Obama was about 15 minutes into a major speech—a plea for Middle East peace—at the Jerusalem International Convention Center when a heckler shouting in Hebrew interrupted him.

“It made me feel at home,” the president quipped.

Obama had just said that “given the ties between our countries, I believe your future is bound to ours” when the yelling began, prompting people in the audience to try to shush the culprit and then to boo him.

The president playfully put his hand to his left ear as though to hear better and later shaded his eyes as though to see the heckler.

“This is part of the lively debate that we talked about. This is good,” Obama declared, prompting many in the crowd to applaud and ultimately to give him a standing ovation.

I didn't know Mr. Obama knew how to speak Israelian.

Zippy was surprised an infiltrator made it into his astroturf. I’m surprised no gunshot was heard within 2 minutes.

Article says the pool reporters think the heckler was yelling about releasing the convicted spy Jonathan Pollard. Good he got in a shot at Sata...er, Obama, but bad message.

I thought every Obama speech was a major Obama speech. Surely, Dear Leader doesn't give minor speeches!

Bethlehem Arabs 'Shoe' Obama Posters, American Officials (First Publish: 3/18/2013, 7:29 PM)

Arabs in Bethlehem had a “warm welcome” for American officials who on Monday came to prepare for President Barack H. Obama's visit to the city Friday, by throwing shoes and garbage at the vehicles in an entourage from the U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem. Hundreds of Arabs mobbed the vehicles outside the Church of the Nativity, where Obama is scheduled to visit when he comes to Bethlehem.

Obama’s trip has had one notable success. Before he went, Israelis distrusted him and he inspired hope in the Arab street. Now the Arab street distrusts him and so do most Israelis. So that’s progress (for us).

I didn’t know that Obama was a Major. When did that happen? Was it just an honorary appointment?

My take is that we all can learn how to address in a respectful manner such situations from the well mannered educated POTUSA.I call this ‘the Chicago attitude’.

Obama had just said that “given the ties between our countries, I believe your future is bound to ours” when the yelling began

Hence his fervent desire to destroy both Israel and America. As far as his own future, well it's bound together with the whole House of Israel alright, just not in the way he has in mind.

Obama is no stranger to heckling—far from it. He famously faced an outburst from Republican Congressman Joe Wilson of South Carolina (who hollered “You lie!” at the president) as well as an interruption from a reporter for the conservative Daily Caller website.

Interesting that the media is associating the "You Lie!" event with this one. There's really a whole lot more to that!

Tick tock...

reminds me of his 2008 hired flunkies who fainted on demand during campaign appearances.

Thanks Smittie.
"It made me feel at home," the president quipped.
Yeah, right, because he's so often heckled. His handpicked and heavily managed 'crowds' at home do everything but lick his ass clean.

“President Barack Obama was about 15 minutes into a major speech—a plea for Middle East peace”

Did the heckler mention Daniel 8:23-25, 9:26-27, 2nd Thessalonians 2:3-4, Luke 21:24, and Revelation chapter 13 as he should regarding such “peace”?
