Obama doesn’t get it

Dear Editor:

Netanyahu is the man! I wish he were our president! Obama either has no regard for Israel or he is, in fact, the total Idiot who just suggested Israel return to its 1967 borders which would be tantamount to their committing national suicide!

I really don’t get American Jews’ fascination with this president. What more does he have to try to do to diminish, perhaps destroy, this nation’s relationship with the one true democratic society and friend to America that exists in the Middle East?

Last week’s speech and the Israeli prime minister’s response, as if lecturing to a schoolboy, basically telling Obama no and displaying for the world to see either how ignorant this administration is to the realities of Israel’s survival as a Jewish homeland or worse, and chillingly, how Pro Arab/Palestinian his real foreign agenda really is. In Netanyahu’s words, “there are No 2nd chances for Israel!”

This country and American Jewry in particular need to wake up to this administration and Obama’s individual glaring and dangerous attitude towards Israel and its basic survival! Ignoring President Bush’s 2004 letter to Israel reaffirming America’s undying and unwavering support for the survival of Israel as a Jewish state is to my mind unforgivable!

That’s my take.
