During the 2008 presidential election candidate Barack Obama publicly positioned himself as a “stalwart friend of Israel” and assured the American Jewish community that the bonds between Israel and the United States were “unbreakable” and that Israel’s “security is sacrosanct.” Partly due to these public assurances, Jewish Americans responded with an overwhelming 78% of their vote.
Many glossed over the fact that President Obama sat in Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s pews for over 20 years listening to anti-Semitic hate speech, maintained personal relationships with well known Israel
Rahm Emanuel, White House Chief of Staff, suggested a linkage between negotiations with Iran over their nuclear weapons development and progress in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The Center for American Progress, the most influential Democratic think tank in Washington and a major player in President Obama’s race for the White House, recently called for Israel to relinquish their sovereignty over the Old City of Jerusalem to a “third-party administration.
For the first time the U.S. became a member of the United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC), an organization boycotted by the Bush administration for good reason.

In President Obama’s well publicized Cairo speech he inferred a moral equivalence between the Holocaust and Israel’s treatment of Palestinians. To compare the horrors of the concentration camps, poison gas showers, and ovens used to turn 6 million Jews and 6 million other people including Russians, Poles, gay men, political prisoners, people with disabilities, and other victims of Hitler’s Germany to ash with the Palestinian situation was an immensely dangerous thing to do. It will almost certainly encourage acts of violence against Jews the world over.

I'm afraid you won't get much purchase here with that story, ATS is fast becoming one of the net's most anti-semitic websites.
Post anything bad about Israel, and the stars just start appearing.
But I do agree, Obama is no lover of Israel, and the Israelis know that.
