Many people were under the illusion that Obama would be a friend to Israel. However, given a lifetime of associations and far left ties I expected much worse.
There are those rabid commies that point to a few Jews in the administration, but ignore the rhetoric from the White House. He has honored people with very lengthy records of over the top
anti Israel activism such as Desmond Tutu.
Thus far Obama is using flowery words but has done little. Health care and then immigration reform seemed to have hit a very raw nerve. This is also precisely why he will pressure Israel to give something to his far left antisemitic core supporters, like Ayers.
