Former New York City Mayor and presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani recently called President Obama “the least supportive president” of Israel in American history and says the idea that Obama is a friend to Israel is “the biggest joke” he’s ever heard.

In a video published on YouTube this week, Giuliani is asked a number of questions regarding the president’s record on Israel, including public remarks made by Obama that negotiations between Palestinian leadership and Israel should be based on pre-1967 boundary lines .

“That would be ridiculous if they had to go back to those territorial lines,” Giuliani said.  “They’d be in such jeopardy with what’s going on in the volatile Middle East right now.”

Asked whether he believes the president when Obama says he’s a friend of Israel, Giuliani said, “I think that’s the biggest joke I’ve ever heard, that he’s a friend of the state of Israel.  I think he’s the least supportive president of the state of Israel that we’ve ever had since the state of Israel existed, republican or democrat.”

This week, the race for the White House has been intertwined with the candidate’s support for Israel as Mitt Romney is set to land in Tel Aviv over the weekend, while President Obama prepares to sign a bill that will enhance military and civilian cooperation between the United States and Israel, on Friday.

Giuliani, who ran for president himself in 2008, also said Obama “feels much more empathy and sympathy” for Israel’s enemies, than for the Jewish state.

“I think for a whole list of reasons, this is a President that has had the worst record with regard to the safety and security of the state of Israel,” he said.

  • Fredric, you stated :I appreciate Obama’s domestic attempts, but he is truly enmeshed with some, perhaps most, terrorist organizations, and does not regret the actions which they perform.”

    Do a google search for ‘Fema Camp’ do your research. Obama is in with the Muslim Brotherhood. There are already tons of concentration camps for the AMERICANS BECAUSE OF OBAMA, and the MUSLIMS will be running them. I have spent hours upon hours doing research on this. Obama wants to strip Americans of their guns so they can just come into our homes, take us into custody, and pull a hitler. Obama, is already training our military and cops to take us down and into custody if we resist. We will be living in hell if we even question anything about our government. They want to kill off a bunch of people and create a super race. They only want 500,000 ELITE people left on the earth before they start breading the elites. The first phase, if you have too much food (basically knowing they are going to do this and you stock up on food) they will come into your house and either A)take you into custody or B)kill you and confiscate your food. They want all Americans microchipped by the end of next year. They will have to kill me. This is not only a way for the Government to track us, it is also possibly the mark of the beast talked about in the Bible because the number 666 is on every microchip. Do your own research, check out the infowars channel on youtube read up on fema camps, you will be surprised at how OBAMA is HANDLING DOMESTIC AFFAIRS.

  • He’s clearly a better friend to Israel than any Republican President we’ve ever had.

    Who pushed the Palestinian elections including Hamas on both the PA and Israel that led to so much bloodshed? Who refused to sell Israeli bunker buster bombs.

    A. George W. Bush.

    Who cut off financial aid to Israel over settlements?

    B. George H. W. Bush.

    Who condemned Israel for bombing Iraq’s nuclear reactor and sophisticated military equipment to Saudi Arabia, cut off the delivery of F-16’s to Israel and suspended an US-Israeli Strategic cooperation agreement.

    C. Ronald Reagan.

    Who sided with Egypt against Israel on the Suez Canal.

    D. Dwight Eisenhower.

  • Fredric M. London

    Obama is not just anti-Israel, he is pro terrorist, as long as it is not Al Quaida. He helped bring the Muslim Brotherhood to power in Egypt, and handcuffs the US’s safety agencies, such as the FBI and Homeland Security, by censoring all materials which might be deemed offensive by the Muslim Brotherhood. He has been responsible for the deaths of many high profile terrorist leaders, and he deserves credit for this. However, it is now known for sure that, due to his administration’s heavy handed politically-coerced censorship, the investigation of the Muslim soldier who murdered several people, was stymied again and again. This attack could have been prevented had the FBI been allowed to investigate based on common sense and available information. Instead, we have several deaths, and more and more leaks to the terrorists of just what security we do have.

    I appreciate Obama’s domestic attempts, but he is truly enmeshed with some, perhaps most, terrorist organizations, and does not regret the actions which they perform.

  • Really the same can be said for Latino, or India, Chinese political support if your country or electorate has a large demographic. But it is linked to ideology and inter-generational indoctrination. See that is why Hitler thought he could get away with the Holocaust, the same thinking the Ayatollah in Tehran have. In many was it is 1939 again, in many ways it is not, things are different, Israel can protect itself, if the Jews want to protect themselves they need to have a state.

  • What it is Jewish money and the vote, many say they support Israel but it is not real it is self interest, some people really do support Israel genuinely and don’t ask for anything in return. Obama does less to hide that fact of the nature of his support. At its core is basically people believe that the protocol of the elders of Zion are fact not fiction, but it is more of a self-fulfilling prophecy in their minds. And if you believe that then you are really anti-Semitic. Iran believes that the majority of people are anti-Semitic and covertly support their apocalyptic vision, which is why the world has not stopped them.
