Much of the media’s focus surrounding November’s Presidential election is on the Republicans right now.  With President Obama having already secured the Democratic nomination, his campaign is in full swing.  In his drive to duplicate the 79% of Jewish voter support he received in 2008, the President released a 7 minute long video discussing his relationships with Israeli policy makers and his administration’s record on Israeli related affairs.

The video includes shots from his address to  the Union for Reform Judaism and his first speech to AIPAC before he became President.

“When I went to Sderot and saw the daily struggle to survive in the eyes of an 8 year old boy who lost his leg to a Hamas rocket.  When I walked among the hall of names at Yad Vashem I was reminded of the existential fear of Israelis when a modern dictator seeks modern weapons and threatens to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.”

Here’s the video.  Let us know what you think!
