Obama and Israel

Reader comment on item: Obama vs Netanyahu, Round Three

Submitted by sara (United States), Feb 21, 2012 at 18:34

It is inconceivable to me that any pro-Israel person could think anything other than that Obama is not a friend to Israel, that he will use shadow tactics to try to influence Israeli internal politics (see Rahm Immanuel's visits) and that he has an obvious affinity for the poor persecuted 1.5 billion Muslims and oil rich arab countries. It is sad and true that today's democrat must decide to be anti-Israel in order to toe the party line.

I am much more afraid of a leftist anti-Israel democrat than I am of the fabled racist right wing zealots who have traditionally been anti- Jewish. Even if they are still a factor in some small way, it is a simple thing to just stay out of their fringe neighborhoods. The democrat leftists on the other hand, besides living all around me, will cause much greater damage on the political level. And all in the name of equality and fairness.
