I have many older colleagues who are mostly liberal but who hate Obama with the white hot intensity of a thousand suns because of Obama’s insufficient fealty towards Bibi Netanyahu. Israel is such a contentious issue, and it’s important to realize that not all Israelis think Obama is evil for opposing some settlements:
Israel will award President Barack Obama the country’s Presidential Medal of Distinction during his upcoming visit.
Israeli President Shimon Peres’ office said Monday that Obama will be recognized for his “unique and significant contribution to strengthening the State of Israel and the security of its citizens.”
It will be fun watching Jennifer Rubin’s and Jackson Diehl’s heads explode over this.
