    From the Jerusalem Post:


    Barak endorses Barack, touts US security support


    Defense minister says Obama most supportive president of Israeli security; Panetta to arrive to press Israel to give sanctions time.



    In what appears like a clear endorsement of a presidential candidate, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Monday night that Barack Obama has been the most supportive president on matters of Israeli security throughout the two countries' diplomatic relations.

    In an interview aired late Monday night on CNN, Barak told Wolf Blitzer that the Obama administration’s support of Israeli defense and intelligence establishments was far greater than under any other administration he remembered working with since and including President Jimmy Carter.


    "I think that from my point of view as defense minister they are extremely good, extremely deep and profound. I can see long years [and] administrations of both sides of [the] political aisle deeply supporting the state of Israeli [sic] and I believe that reflects a profound feeling among the American people," Barak said.

    "But I should tell you honestly that this administration under President Obama is doing, in regard to our security, more than anything that I can remember in the past,” he added.

    Republicans thought he was talking about Romney.

    Romney almost started a war and he was merely a "tourist".

    I'm sure that's what won him praise from Ehud Barak and Shimon Peres.

    I suppose he learned to hate them from that medressa he atended as a kid in Indonesia.

    Praying 'death to Israel' 5 times a day would leave an impression on a lad!
