Since Obama’s meeting with Netanyahu, Obama’s polls in Israel have dropped, most likely over the settlements issue. Maybe Obama will send ACORN over there with a huge shipment of kool-aid to get them back in line.
“Only 6 percent of Jewish Israelis consider the views of American President Barack Obama’s administration pro-Israel, according to a new Jerusalem Post-sponsored Smith Research poll.”
“Israelis’ views of Obama’s predecessor in the White House, George W. Bush, are nearly the opposite. According to last month’s poll, 88% of Israelis considered his administration pro-Israel, 7% said Bush was neutral and just 2% labeled him pro-Palestinian.”
This wouldn’t be an issue if Israel had just annexed the whole West Bank and Gaza strip after they had won the territory in 1967. In Israel, you can’t keep kicking the ball down the road for someone else to deal with, because it keeps coming back. And it gets bigger over time.
Obviously, Obama is not seen to be the long-awaited Messiah in Israel as he is here in the US…
