Who wants Obama?
Israel's Left (all three of them) has started a Facebook page that urges President Hussein Obama to come speak at Rabin Square in Tel Aviv.
The Right has countered with a Facebook page that asks Obama to come speak in the Shomron.
On Sunday, the Samaria Citizens’ Committee opened its own Facebook page, “Obama Come to the Shomron.” Its top photograph has the words “Speech for life” and shows the Israeli flag draped over a girl’s back as if it were a set of wings.
Committee chairman Benny Katzover said that before Obama spoke of withdrawals and another construction freeze, he should visit Judea and Samaria to see for himself that it was the heart of a very small country.
“From here, he can see its width and breath,” he said.
Samaria is the place to which biblical forefather Abraham first came, and the place to which his grandson Jacob returned, he added, noting that it was also on Mount Gerizim in Samaria, where Joshua built an altar for peace offerings when the ancient Israelites returned to the land.
Now the United States wants to take this biblical Jewish heartland and turn it into a terrorist state, contended Katzover, who opposes the creation of a Palestinian state.
“Why does [the US] want another terrorist base in this region?” he asked.I'd be happier if Obama didn't come to Israel at all, and hell will freeze over before Obama visits a Jewish town in Samaria, but I 'liked' the Facebook page because it looks like a counter of Right v. Left, and I urge all of you to do the same.
