This PROVES Obama Is the WORST US President Israel's EVER Dealt With

. . . or, something like that.


Israel to Award Obama Medal of Distinction (First Sitting US President

President Obama will be awarded the Israeli Presidential Medal of Distinction during his visit to Israel next month, according to a report in the Times of Israel.

Obama will be the first sitting U.S. president to receive the honor, which was announced by Israeli President Shimon Peres’s office on Monday.

“Barack Obama is a true friend of the State of Israel, and has been since the beginning of his public life,” said Peres in a statement announcing the decision.

“As president of the United States of America, he has stood with Israel in times of crisis," he continued. "During his time as president he has made a unique contribution to the security of the State of Israel, both through further strengthening the strategic cooperation between the countries and through the joint development of technology to defend against rockets and terrorism.”


The statement went on to praise Obama as a “symbol of democratic values” who “exemplifies the spirit of equality of opportunity in American society.”

1. Don't they know that Obama's a secret Muslim, and he and his henchmen Hagel (say that

five times fast) are plotting to destroy Israel?

3. And yet another RW talking point

bites the dust, while GOP heads explode across the nation.

It will be very amusing to hear the Republican PTB explain this one to their minions.

7. Republican pro Israel rhetoric is for rightwing conservative Christians...

waiting for Jesus to come back and kill all Jews except for the male virgins, not for the super majority of Jews.

It is religion not reality.

9. I am well aware of that

but then I'm not a Republican (and I am an American Jew).

I was talking about how yet another RW talking point has been rendered toothless in the face of reality.

That seems to be happening more and more often of late. And I can't wait to hear the GOP try to explain why their 'facts' keeping getting disproven.

25. Agreed!

And they'll come up with one or two news items that they'll deem earth shattering,ground breaking and pound away on them all for as long as it takes.Anything to take attention away from the Israeli trip and dupe their regulars as they consistently do. In that regard there must be something going on that Fox wants to provide a smokescreen for and it could be Israel because they have given a lot of coverage to the suicide of a so called country music star today. While it is a tragic,sad story it does not deserve the time given to it by Fox to the exclusion of President's Day or the Israeli trip.

11. he deals with Israel as he would ANY of our major allies; in what he regards as the US interest

. . . nothing about that relationship runs afoul of our constitution or the oath he swore to.

But, that isn't the issue here. Even as this administration has worked to build and maintain our nation's relationship and promised obligations to our ally in the Middle East, they've also challenged Israel on several fronts and worked to make diplomatic progress and forge working relationships with some who may not operate in Israel's interest. It's inevitable that both sides will have an interest in portraying him as partial to one or the other.

Let's have Marco Rubio with a T Shirt which says, what else?

I went to Israel and all I got was a lousy T Shirt!


I think everyone realizes the right wings attempt to derail our Presidents foreign policy. Especially the better informed al Jazeera watchers.

18. Um, this is an award from Pres. Shimon Peres. We all know how weak on supporting Israel he is.

Did you know Peres actually supports peace talks with the Palestinians? Surely you know talking is negotiating and negotiating is compromise and compromise is surrender and surrender is a form of terrorism. Rather than support a true Israeli hero like Bibi, Obama is essentially siding with terrorists again. Everyone who disagrees with me is a terrorist, except they use facts instead of car bombs, but otherwise they're indistinguishable.

it's a fairy tale, the Israelis were blackmailed, it's satire, it's a joke by the Israelis ("the Jews have a great sense of humor"), etc.

By the way, I can only get the thread through Google cache, maybe the thread was deleted?
