6%? As many as that?

United in hate

Only 6 percent of Jewish Israelis consider the views of American President Barack Obama's administration pro-Israel, according to a new Jerusalem Post-sponsored Smith Research poll.

My first reaction would be to wonder about the sanity of that 6%. It is certainly clear that Obama hates Israel. The Post notes that "polls have consistently shown that Israelis believed the Arabs were at fault for the lack of Middle East peace and they reject perceived attempts by Obama to blame Israel or take an even-handed approach."

And they would be right. To understand the reason why this conflict has still never been resolved, just read the Hamas Charter.

It also seems that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu's recent speech in response to Borat Obama's cretinous Cairo address was intended to serve a very specific purpose: uniting the Israeli people against an Obama administration whose insistence on the destruction of Israel is becoming increasingly lethal. As the Post again notes: "polls have shown that an overwhelming majority of Israelis agreed with Netanyahu's vision and believed he was speaking for a consensus of Israelis in his response to Obama's speech to the Muslim world in Cairo." It will be interesting to see how this goes forward.
