Current history is what matters.

Reader comment on item: Why I Am Voting Republican
in response to reader comment: Reps vs. Dems on Israel

Submitted by Teresa (United States), Nov 5, 2012 at 01:02

It matters not what past history was with regard to how Democrats performed toward Israel. Let's look at current history - this past year's history, to get a feel for Obama's "newly defined Democratic sentiment" toward Israel.

President Obama wanted Israel to return to pre-1967 borders. (Yeah, good luck with that.) He demonstrated outrageous disrespect toward Benjamin Netanyahu during his visit to the White House, and let's not forget the "off the mic" comments Obama made to Sarkozy about how he has to "put up with him (Netanyahu) every day".

He had the audacity to give an "I love Israel" photo-op/speech at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, all the while having just released a $147 million aid package to Palestinians. He did not protest the the removal of the pro-Israel language in the Democratic Party platform. We all saw what a botched job that turned out to be when they had to "cast" their votes to keep it in. His administration refuses to continue to acknowledge that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, and refuses to move the embassy to Jerusalem. Oh - and let's not forget how he wanted the UN to waive the ban on UNESCO. There are plenty more.

I am not Jewish. I can't for the life of me understand how anyone Jewish could vote for Barack Obama. He is not *really* a friend to Israel, or to the Jewish people. He is excellent at putting on the "I love Israel" face when he has to, and it's more like the love a snake has for a rat. You can tell a tree by its fruit. He and all of his anti-Israel friends in Congress need to be removed this Tuesday, and never welcomed back to Washington.
