    Replace "hate" with whatever word you want and it still doesn't change the fact that you made a statement of fact, I called you on it and you failed miserably.

    I know but its pretty clear what i was getting at: "Obama destroying relations with Israel". "Obama causing problems with Israel." "Alliance with Israel hurt because of Obama".

    But you stated you didnt want to play semantics but here we are...

    Obama just keeps looking better and better. A great leader, he is - for REAL American patriots, that is!

    The Israelis recognize the empty suit with the big ego and played him with a little bobble to attract his attention. It's like the telemarketer who tells you you've just won a Caribbean vacation, now just give me your credit card number so I can process your prize.

    Not quite, but he can put it on the same shelf in his house. The "Accolades I appreciate, but didn't really earn" shelf.

    There are probably more than a few Israelis who like Obama. Peres is a figure of the Israeli center-left, so it's not a huge surprise that those people would like Obama

    Obama speaks in front of a bunch of students and you're gushing about his reception?

    thanks for that:
    ‘Generally,’ the new minister added, ‘there is no occupation within one’s own land.’
    confirms my suspicions. many in israel have no intent to relinquish captured territories
    The Rabbinical Congress for Peace (RCP), comprised of over 350 prominent rabbis in Israel from religious Zionist, Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) and Chabad sectors, Torah leaders of the past and present, has sent a very sharp letter to the heads of the political parties in Israel as they are negotiating on forming a new government, criticizing them for completely ignoring the danger hovering over the millions of residents in Israel as a result of the two-state solution. ‘Is this a time to argue over jobs and portfolios or who will blink first while the ominous threat of a Palestinian state is in the making? If such a state will be established, terrorism will soar and millions of people will be in danger. Instead of finding ways to stop the madness of the so-called two-state solution party leaders are now engaged in power and ego struggles,’ the RCP letter read.” “In their letter, the rabbis called upon all parties to receive President Barack Obama with a clear declaration that a Palestinian Arab state will never be established on Israeli land ...
    only further underscores my belief that hard line israelis have no intention to negotiate a two state solution
