The President has been doing a little international traveling lately. First touching down in Israel where he was warmly, and I mean warmly greeted by Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Peres . Then on to the West Bank where he was likewise warmly greeted by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
Peres gave the Obama Israel’s highest honor – the Presidential Medal of Distinction. When the President spoke to in Jerusalem to an audience of primarily young people, his statements about peace received rounds of thunderous applause. Why is that so important? Because they have first hand knowledge due to their compulsory military service.
All the poopy-pants Obama haters and chickenhawks are still saying Obama hates Israel. But there is no doubt that this trip was a tremendous foreign policy success.
