Thank God we won't waste his talents nation-building in Iraq for a decade.

What ever happen to the repubs who were against nation-building?

They went the way of the do-do bird.

Even though many American Jews feel that to even ask the question about Obama’s attitude is divisive, few here have stopped to ask what the Israelis themselves think about the president. If they did, they’ll hear an answer that Democrats won’t like.

A new Smith Research/Jerusalem Post poll published yesterday reveals that Israelis have an overwhelmingly negative opinion of Obama. Rather than view the president as the friend of the Jewish state that the Democrats claim he is, 40 percent of Israelis view him as pro-Palestinian with only 12 percent seeing him as pro-Israel and 34 percent thinking of him as neutral.

This is a far cry from the poll that was taken in 2009 before his first fights with Israel’s government and his Cairo speech to the Arab world. In May of that year, 31 percent of Israelis saw him as pro-Israel and only 14 percent pro-Palestinians with 40 percent claiming that he was neutral.

It’s clear from these numbers as well as the remarkable boost in Prime Minister Netanyahu’s popularity at home that Israelis have come to the firm conclusion that Obama is no friend to their country. Most Israelis were shocked by the president’s invocation of the 1967 borders as well as his refusal to demand that the Palestinians give up the right of return. Indeed, he is clearly the most unpopular American president in decades.

American Jews are entitled to their own opinion about Obama and Israel but it seems only reasonable that they should, at the very least, show some deference to the people to whom the question matters most.

Israelis don’t trust Obama. After the events of the last week, perhaps American Jews should be listening to them.

I wonder how long it will take before the radical right GOP/TEA Birther McCarthyists start with their unpatriotic military bashing over this pick.
