During the recent presidential campaign, Republicans attempted to portray Barack Obama as hostile to Israel and that if elected it would mean the end of the Jewish state. Yesterday, Obama reached out to Prime Minister Olmert and discussed with him ways of dealing with the current impasse in resolving the Israel-Palestine conflict. Both “agreed on the need to continue to advance the peace process, and this, while safeguarding the security of Israel.” Obama, from day one, has made clear his desire to see reconciliation between Palestinians and Israel and that most probably requires compromise on the part of both groups.
The very Jewish organizations who spread their filthy lies about Obama as an “enemy of Israel,” and now shouting praise over his selection of Rep. Rahm Emanuel as his chief of staff. William Daroff of the United Jewish Communities, which was not that fond of Obama, said “Rep. Emanuel is among the sharpest political tacticians and policy makers that is on the scene in Washington D.C.”
Hopefully, supporters of Israel understand Obama seeks a peace agreement that meets the needs of all parties, not just those of Israel.
