Unlike the far left, elitist Obama supporters, who have voiced support for the Palestinians, and condemed Israel ... Israel's first, second, and third priority is mere survival. The Israelis can not afford to place all their trust in the empty rhetoric of Obama, because if he flip flops with Israel, it could easily result in the destruction of Israel and all of her people. Obama's main supporters in America are a bunch of immature young people, with no life experience, or wisdom ... or, people who are so committed to electing the first black president, that his credentials, experience and competence are their secondary considerations ... if those traits are considerations at all.
