Washington - A day after he made what is being called his “Zionist speech” at the UN General Assembly in New York, US President Barack Obama was back in the White House where he held a conference call with over 900 orthodox, conservative and reform rabbis from throughout the US ahead of the Jewish new year.

During the 30 minute call, Obama assured the rabbis that the US-Israel alliance was stronger than ever before.

“Prime Minister Netanyahu knows he can count on the United States,” Obama told the rabbis. “We will not abandon the pursuit of a just and lasting peace that will end the conflict.”

He then noted that “the bonds between the US and Israel are unbreakable and the commitment of the security of Israel is ironclad. Since coming into office, I haven’t just talked the talk, we’ve walked the walk.”

I don't know why President Obama bothered!

It's been sounding more & more to me, like the Jewish Nation has all but abandoned this President & whether or not it's based on actual FACTS that they've done this, isn't the point anymore!

Obama has made it clear time & time again that he's a fervent supporter of Israel! That he understands that the Israelis need to feel as though there is another country out there that cares whether or not they live or die!

President Obama "gets" that & even at the expense of the reputation of THIS country's belief in "democracy" & even at the expense of his *own* global political reputation... he's stood by Israel!

But NONE of that gets any respect from the Jewish people! And even when Rick Perry so disrespectfully makes a fool of our President at a press conference, (in front of International state-heads no less)... where were the *rational* Jews at to say STOP?! This is disrespectful to our American President who right now is having the fight of his political life against the Palestinians at the UN in OUR defense?! They were nowhere to be found!

And can you imagine if a Democrat had done that to George Bush in the SAME fashion?!

Sad.

No we have not abandoned the president. Only in the grimey world of the blogsphere and annonymous postings on the internet from empty headed Jews who know nothing of torah or its values will you see such abhorrent comments. Torah true Jews recognize and appreciate our president for his support of the not so Jewish state. Dov Hikind and his ilk need to to be marginalized so that his bleating and mooing won't be heard.

Too late for pondering, Hussein. We are on to you.

By the way, anybody here whose rav was included? I kind of doubt it…

And you consider yourself intellectual? You consider yourself as have any connection to the Torah? You are aware the you are the prime example of a dweller in the armpits of the blogosphere.
