President Obama, in pressuring Israel about "settlements" and describing Judea and Samaria as "occupied," has done more to support terrorism than any US president. Legally, the West Bank is "disputed," not occupied. But Mr. Obama decides the outcome of negotiations before they take place when so designating that area.

Moreover, he fails to recognize the absolute good that Israel does for the United States by choosing to pressure an ally instead of a corrupt regime like Iran. Israeli technical armor has saved numerous American soldiers from certain death and Israeli unmanned aerial vehicle technology has improve the performance of US products and reduced the "collateral" damage - the death of civilians in Afghanistan. In return Mr. Obama has canceled the F-22 Raptor fighter-bomber, putting more than 9000 Americans out of work only so as not to have to sell it to Israel or Japan. In effect, he canceled an export program capable of reducing the US trade deficit.

Thanks Jerry. While I'm not sure I would go so far as to say that Obama has deliberately aided the cause of terrorists, I do agree with you that Israel deserves better. The heroism of its people should not be dismissed and we should think twice before selling them out to those who despise us.
