Obama’s Exit Good for Israel


The recent sermon or speech at Adas Israel synagogue in Washington, D.C., by President Obama continues to show that while he may not be anti-Israel, he has no empathy for that nation (“Off the Mark, Obama’s latest wooing of Jews not working, poll suggests,” June 19). As usual, he blamed the lack of progress in obtaining a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority mainly on Israel and not on the intransigence of Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority.

Unfortunately his present attitude toward Israel may have been formed by his previous mentors that included individuals noted for their anti-Israel and sometimes anti-Semitic statements. Certainly, he has soured the relations between Israel and the U. S., whether knowingly or purposely. The end of his second term will be welcomed by those concerned about the security and even existence of the Jewish state.
