    Can you imagine an American President warning that Black voters were voting in numbers? Or a European PM warneing "Quick, the Jews are all voting!" It's despicable.
    I am betting that you were quite okay with the Democrats playing the race card in the lead up to the 2014 midterms with their phony claim that Voter ID bills disenfranchise minority and elderly voters.

    What exactly was racist? Aren't both Israeli Jews and Arabs semites?

    No, sorry, never said that Israel was launching missiles but the other way around. Do you get any news where you live?

    What he did was wrong clearly and a leader of a democratic nation should never go to these places and alienate a minority of his citizens from the rest of the nation, it's outrageous, but it wasn't racism that motivated him it was the fear that the Arab list - that the overwhelming majority of Israeli-Arab voters are voting for - will gain many more seats in the Knesset and since the head of that list promised to throw his support for Herzog, the rival of Netanyahu in the recent campaign, it would have led to an Herzog-led leftist government. So Netanyahu was simply engaging in logical elections rhetoric, not racism.

    How it all works out is meaningless to Hussein. Same with Obamacare....even those who got subsidies are now suffering buyers remorse at tax time.
