Washington - The White House is denying a story in the Israeli newspaper Maariv, [posted here by VIN] gaining traction, that Israeli nuclear scientists have been denied visas to visit the United States.

The story, whose sourcing is a bit hazy, says that “Israel’s Dimona nuclear reactor’s employees have told Israel’s Maariv daily that they have been having problems recently getting visas to the United States where they have for years attended seminars in Chemistry, Physics and Nuclear Engineering. They also complain of being treated in an ‘insulting manner’ by President Obama’s people. Until recently, employees of the Nuclear Research Center routinely traveled to the United States for seminars and courses.”

But White House spokesman Bill Burton flatly denied the report of a change to U.S. visa policy.

Notice he did not deny the story, he simply denied there was a "change" to visa policy. The policy may have "exceptions," you know.

What an embarrassment for Israelis and Jews and Israeli media if all they will do is increase these lousy publications of Anti-Obama conspiracy theories. The whaa, whaa, Obama Hussein is Muslim and he hates us whining will only hurt the Jewish world, not benefit it.

Please read both articles and see for yourself.
Policy was always NOT to let in these scientists but exceptions were made. Obama is not willing to make those exceptions and therefore these scientists are not issued visas now.
Read carefully what the white house spokesman said: "there was no change in policy" which is true. But the US which understood the importance of a strong Israel always made an exception for Israel.

Some people will always be blinded to reality.

Obama's Whitehouse has zero credibility.

If this is a "friend" I wonder who you consider your own personal "friends"? Let's say someone who is trying to forcibly evict you from your ancestral home while at the same time make sure you are defenseless to a homicidal maniac. According to your book that's a "friend".

You don’t know a thing about my views, how can you call me a far leftwing nut? It goes to show that all the right-wingers are just good in name calling not discussing their views because your views are hollow. Finally, don’t celebrate prematurely; remember you don’t want to look like a fool, when in 2012 President Obama is reelected.

No. 4

I understand that Obama's doctrine adds up to the Shita you guys in KJ teach and preach (how do I know you're from KJ? Guess) but at the end of the day he hates you just as much as he hates Israel. Don't thing for one second that Obama is your friend even though your mayor sent him a letter praising his Israel bashing.

Obama defenders:

You will be seen with egg on your face. Obama has said everything except the clear statement declaring Israel as an enemy of US. He has also said everything but the clear statement that befriends Islam, yes, the fanatic stuff, including tolerance and support of their adherence to terror. The rest of his policies are plainly anti-American, including defense, health care, and the economy. They are totally irresponsible, and they are the product of ideologies that are worse than radical. No, I'm not a "right wing nut". I'm just a realist, and I refuse to believe the softly worded lies. I won't accept all the platitudes Obama showered during his campaign. His rhetoric is shameful, and those who endorse it are either co-conspirators or plain fools. REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER.

You know all about making up stories. Like the story of the black congressmen being called racial names by the tea party protesters. Or the story of hundreds of thousands dying for lack of health insurance, or going bankrupt from medical bills. Or the one about Bush bringing a plastic turkey to Iraq. Or Bush stealing elections, knowing about 9/11 in advance, or Bush going AWOL, or buying his way into the National Guard, or pretty much any other story you told about him.

Pajamas Media has a far better record than any other news service. Certainly better than NBC, CNN, CBS, etc.

Even if Obama wasn't anti Israel (w he is) he's still a horrible president for us as Americans...the fact that you don't see that n that you want him elected a second term does, in fact, make you a left wing loon. Congrats.

Again you resorted to name calling instead of debating actual facts, which I am willing to debate. As usual, you are just espousing nonsense, which you hear from the rightwing FOX and radio circus masters.
