Obama on The Jews

From Remarks by the President at Reception in Honor of Jewish American Heritage Month:-

...This month is a chance for Americans of every faith to appreciate the contributions of the Jewish people throughout our history –- often in the face of unspeakable discrimination and adversity. For hundreds of years, Jewish Americans have fought heroically in battle and inspired us to pursue peace. They’ve built our cities, cured our sick. They’ve paved the way in the sciences and the law, in our politics and in the arts. They remain our leaders, our teachers, our neighbors and our friends.

Not bad for a band of believers who have been tested from the moment that they came together and professed their faith. The Jewish people have always persevered. And that’s why today is about celebrating the people in this room, the thousands who came before, the generations who will shape the future of our country and the future of the world.

So Mr. Two-Faced read what his speech writer wrote. It doesn't mean he either believes it or cares. What we DO know of Obama is that he is against Israel and would prefer we did NOT exist.

That's the word that comes to mind.
