    Well it's another show of flip flopping and hypocrisy by the left.

    "On June 4 of that year – one day after announcing he had secured the required number of delegates to win the Democratic nomination – Obama delivered a speech at the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) policy conference.

    Any negotiated agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, he said, “must preserve Israel’s identity as a Jewish state with secure, recognized, defensible borders. And Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel and it must remain undivided.”

    The pledge brought a standing ovation from the 7,000-plus AIPAC audience, praise from pro-Israel organizations in the U.S. – and an Arab outcry.


    Candidate Obama Also Called Jerusalem Israel

    Politicians can be flip floppers but Obama takes the title of "Chameleon in Chief".

    And there was an Arab outcry.


    The whole world knows that holy Jerusalem was occupied in 1967 and we will not accept a Palestinian state without having Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state,” P.A. chairman Mahmoud Abbas told reporters in Ramallah.

    That was before Obama had to listen to Netanyahu whine for 3-1/2 years.

    Obama. like all presidential contenders, had to kowtow to AIPAC in order to get elected in 2008

    If Obama wins in 2012

    Israel and the psychopathic zionists that rule that country are going to have a rough time. :cool:
