    Reprinted from Palestinian Media Watch. Two days before US President Barack Obama’s visit to Israel and the PA, the official PA daily chose to print anti-American hate speech along with pro-Hitler comments in an op-ed: “Our history is replete with lies… [including] the lie about Al-Qaeda and the September 11 events, which asserted that Muslim terrorists committed it, and that it was not an internal American action by the Freemasons.” The op-ed further implies that Hitler was greater than both Churchill and Roosevelt, who were “alcoholics”: “Churchill and Roosevelt were alcoholics, and in their youth were questioned more than once...

    Obama Visits Israel: Welcome The Stranger?By Joel Leyden Israel News AgencyJerusalem, Israel --- March 20, 2013 … In a matter of hours, US President Barack Obama will set foot on Israeli soil. This will be Barack Obama's first visit to Israel as President. One needs to ask why? This may very well be the least anticipated visit to Israel by a US President. Many do not view Obama as a "friend" of Israel - and for good reason. Obama, a Christian, grew up as a Muslim in Indonesia. As a Muslim he learned to embrace Islam and expel all other...

    Isn’t this cute. Obama is sucking up to the Mullahs in Iran with a special ‘Nowruz Message’ translated into Persian. I wonder how much tax payer money was wasted on this latest version of Obama pandering to radical Islamists? The Nowruz message to Iran was released shortly before Obama popped onto Air Force One and headed to the Middle East.

    This is the attitude that Barack Obama is taking with him on his first official visit to Israel as president. When President Obama was asked by a group of Arab-American leaders during a meeting last week on why he did not intend to launch a new peace process, the leader said that Israel was not ready to make concessions, the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, cited an official, who was present at the high-level meeting, as saying. The official, who kept his identity anonymous, said the U.S. leader was frustrated with fruitlessness of the peace process, claiming it would be pointless to...
  • White House lowers expectations ahead of Obama's Middle East trip

    As President Obama heads to the Middle East this week, including his first visit to Israel since becoming commander in chief, the White House is downplaying expectations, saying the president hopes only to help leaders come together to bring peace and democracy to the region. The president arrives Wednesday in Jerusalem, where he will try to improve his relationship with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, on the heels of a newly installed Israeli government. Netanyahu was re-elected in January but didn’t reach a deal until Friday with rival parties to create a coalition government that adds centrist Yesh Atid and pro-settler...

    US president to ride around capital in moving fortress; 5,000 policemen to secure his every move WASHINGTON - United States President Barack Obama 's security team is taking no chances: During the presidential visit in Israel which begins next Wednesday, the president will ride around Jerusalem in The Beast, the aptly named tank-turned-car, a rolling fortress. Obama's motorcade will include two such vehicles – each costing $300,000 – driving around between a huge entourage of uniformed and undercover security men. Though the American people have a historical affinity to seeing their presidents out in the open waving from horse drawn...

    This last Tuesday I awaited the reporter's next question. We were sitting in the ultra modern business lounge of the Mamilla hotel in East Jerusalem. The reporter had been tailing me as I toured some yet-to-be-made-public excavations in the City of David, just outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. My seven days in Israel went by in such a flash it was genuinely difficult to focus on doing an interview with the nation's leading newspaper. My mind raced as the people I had been with were much on my mind, and the sights I had seen--especially those...

    A White House video which states that President Barack Obama's planned speech before Israeli university students is the centerpiece of his visit, also appears to confirm that the White House deliberately left Ariel University students out of the event. The spokesman in the video, Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes, says in it that the universities chosen to send students to the event were the ones that "partner" with the U.S. Embassy. This explanation places responsibility for leaving out Ariel – while including all of Israel's other universities – on the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv.

    The IDF has received orders to dismantle the new communities of Ramat Migron and Oz Tzion by the beginning of next week – in preparation for the visit of U.S. President Barack H. Obama. The orders were displayed in an IDF document obtained by Arutz Sheva. Soldiers were ordered to remove the new communities, termed “outposts” in the media, and to set up extensive patrols to ensure that they are not rebuilt, at least during the time Obama will be in Israel. The communities are in the area of Ramallah, which Obama will be visiting on his visit to Israel....

    During his trip to Israel this month, U.S. President Barack Obama is expected to pay a visit to the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, members of his delegation told Israeli government ministry representatives on Monday. According to a high-ranking Israeli official, that stop, scheduled for Friday, March 22, was added to his itinerary only in the past few days. UNESCO recognized the Church of the Nativity as a Palestinian World Heritage Site in June 2012, several months after Palestine became a full-fledged member of the organization.

    Designated terrorist group Hamas has warned President Obama against visiting the holy Temple Mount site in Jerusalem when he visits Israel next month, saying the action would be “a diplomatic catastrophe.” Mr. Obama hasn’t confirmed a visit to the Temple Mount. But Muslim leaders have heard rumors and have issued a blunt statement nonetheless, The Times of Israel reports.

    Political and religious leaders in the Palestinian Authority on Sunday stressed that U.S. President Barack Obama should not visit the Al-Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem in a way that might compromise what they called its "Muslim sovereignty," AFP reports. Obama will be arriving in the region in the spring, and PA media has been speculating that he will visit the site of the mosque. The White House, however, has announced neither the dates of Obama's visit nor its itinerary. Sheikh Akrameh Sabri, head of the higher Islamic council and former Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, said that Obama must enter through...

According to the plan, journalists will be taken on tours around Jerusalem and will visit the main historical sites, such as City of David and the Western Wall Tunnel. They will also be taken to an Israel Museum's exhibition about King Herod and to the Ice City, where they will see a custom built ice sculptor in Obama's image. <<<

    I'm getting a lot of email asking me how Israel could be awarding its 'highest civilian honor' to the most anti-Israel President of the United States ever, Barack Hussein Obama. Here's some fairly typical coverage from Fox News. Israel will award President Barack Obama the country's Presidential Medal of Distinction during his upcoming visit. Israeli President Shimon Peres' office said Monday that Obama will be recognized for his "unique and significant contribution to strengthening the State of Israel and the security of its citizens." Obama is scheduled to visit Israel in March -- his first as president. Obama has often...

    The English version of the code name chosen for the operations surrounding the upcoming visit to Israel by U.S. President Barack Obama, scheduled for March 20, is "Unbreakable Alliance." The Hebrew name is "Brit Amim," which means, literally, "an alliance between nations." According to Maariv/NRG, the names were chosen carefully by the National Public Information Staff, which is wary of upsetting Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

    Israel is finishing the preparations for United States President Barack Obama’s planned visit in March. Plans for Obama’s visit include a trip to Yad Vashem and to Rabin’s grave, and dinners with Netanyahu and Peres. Obama will apparently not speak in the Knesset. His staff has requested that the venue chosen for his speech be large enough for a crowd of 1,000 Israeli citizens, which the Knesset is not. Instead, Obama may speak at the Binyanei Hauma conference center in central Jerusalem. His trip will begin with an official state welcoming at the airport, complete with a red carpet and...
