    It most certainly did not back fire. It woke America up to what Obama was doing and created a backlash that exists today in spades. It created Donald Trump. It was netanyahus last act of defiance against a corrupt administration. If Bebe could stand up against Obsma the common folk who have been at the mercy of this lunatic felt they could make a stand against Obama. Since Hillary and Obama have armed your enemy’s they now are saying let us do maneuvers with you and arm you so that you can defend yourself against Obamas chosen ones it will look good for the democrats and my election. Remember who they are they are not only your enemy they are your most dangerous enemy who come at you with a smile and a hand shake. Bewarw of the hand shake of the snake.
