Its all the Press’ fault, I love Israel…was the message Barack Obama gave to the American Jewish community yesterday. But if the Jewish community cares about the nation of Israel they should ignore that fake message.

During a conference call with Jewish community leaders, National Security Council Middle East Senior Director, Dan Shapiro stressed to American Jews that that the U.S. did not intend to insist that Israel halt construction in East Jerusalem, and that the recent bout of tension was a matter of bad timing which was overblown by the media.

Shapiro said that Friday’s meeting was intended mainly to calm the anxiety of the U.S. Jewish community, and reassure them that Obama is a friend and ally of Israel, despite the media portrayal of tension with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Shapiro said that Netanyahu’s meeting with Obama during his recent visit to Washington was open and honest, during which they reached agreements regarding the building in East Jerusalem, negotiations with the Palestinian Authority, and Iran’s nuclear program.

He added that there was no intention to insult Netanyahu by avoiding a photo-op following their meeting, and that the two leaders where in agreement regarding the nature of their meeting prior to the PM’s visit. 

Feel Better Now? You shouldn’t.

The President wants us to believe that he just missed his family when he angrily left the meeting with Netanyahu to go upstairs to have dinner with his wife and kids. Even though the meeting was in the White House he was able to have dinner with Michelle and the girls who were in New York City that night.

The President would have the Jewish community in America believe that the reports and statements coming from his administration since last July demanding that Israel stop building in her Capitol, were lies fabricated by the Mainstream Media. Sorry Mr. President, as Judge Judy would say, “Don’t pee on my leg and tell me its raining!
