MANHATTAN – During an exclusive campaign fundraiser on New York’s Upper East Side tonight, President Obama offered reassurances to some of his most loyal Jewish supporters about the administration’s commitment to Israel. <-- Yep like demand Israel go back to undefendable lines.
“Obviously, no ally is more important than the state of Israel,” Obama said. <-- And he showed it by insulting and belittling Israel’s elected leader at every opportunity.
“This administration – I try not to pat myself too much on the back – but this administration has done more in terms of the security of the state of Israel than any previous administration,” he added. <-- All he does is pat him self on the back.
Obama has taken heat from some members of the Jewish community for what have been, at times, frustrated relations with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and for his public calls for statehood negotiations with Palestinians to start with the pre-1967 lines.
American Jewish Congress chairman Jack Rosen, who hosted Obama fundraiser at his private home, acknowledged the concerns generally in his introduction of the president. But Rosen praised the president’s record.
“America’s never been as supportive to the state of Israel” than since Obama took office, he said. <-- That depends upon what your definition of "Supportive" is.
Thirty Obama supporters each paid at least $10,000 per person to attend, said a Democratic official. <-- Suckers. Wait a week, could have attended for $4.00 like other events.
