    Skepticism? give me a break! Obama does not give a damn about Israel and that should have been perfectly apparent by his choice of Secretary of Defense. and what about his release of Rahm Emanuel? Do you really think that Emanuel was interested in giving up the seconc most powerful position in the world to govern Chicago? So it was either the gay poke in the chest to the Senator while naked in the health club OR that Obama wanted to clear the decks of Israelis after appearing like he favors them by letting Emanuel go. Either way, Obama wants to look like he has done something in office. But is negotiating with a smiling viper really doing something? I guess it is when you only have a 130 IQ and you are a militant anti-colonialist negro.

    the white house has learnt to play “good cop, bad cop”, with official statements placating israel, while letting their “hit men” at the new york times take vicious swipes at netanyahu.

    it’s almost as if the dhimmi-in-chief was afraid of losing his chance at a nobel peace prize, this time to be shared with vlad putin. neither of them are exactly mother theresa, but then again, neither was yasser arafat, yi”sh.
