There you go again.

From the USA Today on November 2, 2011:

The White House criticized Israel today for its decision to speed up settlement activity in light of UNESCO's decision to grant membership to the Palestinian Authority.
"We are deeply disappointed by yesterday's announcement about accelerated housing construction in Jerusalem and the West Bank," said White House spokesman Jay Carney.

As Yogi Berra might say: "this is deja vu all over again."  How many times has the Obama administration publicly scolded America's best friend [up until now] in the Middle East?    Thank God Israel has a strong leader in Bibi Netanyahu, who cares more about Israel's existence, then in making our weak, misguided president look good. 

I will stop asking how many more times Obama has to show that he is not pro Israel before liberal Jews get it. I have come to the sad realization that liberal Jews will never get it. I include the ADL  in this as they are floating a petition asking Jews and Jewish organizations to not make this administration's policy toward Israel an issue in the next election.   I have news for you ADL.  If we don't make Israel an issue in this next election and this guy [who heads the first American administration that is not pro Israel] gets re elected, there might not be an Israel in the election after this one.

President Obama, instead of worrying about whether Israel should build homes in the capitol of their country, why don't you worry about the deplorable state of housing in your own country.

The increasingly aggressive posturing of Iran against Israel is a result of this administrations naivity and pro-palestenian stance --- the ADL is no friend of Israel if they make such moronic requests--- the only true democracy in the middle east is on the line in the 2012 election-- I fear that big Mike's assessment of American Jewry head in the sand posture may be correct!!

I wish my assessment was wrong big Brad. Thanks for your comments.
