Israelis aren't fooled by Obama

Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama was here in Israel on Wednesday, and it seems that many Israelis are not fooled by him. Despite being inundated for months with op-ed pieces about how we shouldn't be afraid of an Obama presidency, the average Israeli just isn't buying into it.

Over at Gateway Pundit, Midwest Jim has a picture of how Israelis lined up in the streets to 'greet' the Obamessiah. Debbie Schlussel has a long piece on Obama in which she points out that 'Israelis for Obama' has only 57 members, and only six of them are Israelis.

Obama concluded his trip by going to the Western Wall this morning for the sunrise service, and despite the fact that there aren't that many people there at that hour of the morning (sunrise was 5:49 today), the Times of London (not Uzi Mahnaimi this time) reports that Obama was still heckled by those present.
The US presidential nominee was heckled as he visited the Western Wall in the early hours of Thursday morning, bowing his head in prayer and observing traditional custom by placing a folded piece of paper into the crevice of the wall.

Orthodox men interrupted their morning prayers to catch a glimpse of the Illinois senator, reaching out to shake his hand as he passed them by. But not all were taken by the Democrat. One yelled out: “Obama, Jerusalem is not for sale!” before Mr Obama was whisked away to his waiting plane.
Later today, I'll come back to why a lot of Israelis aren't - and should not be - taken in by the Obamaessiah.

If they're not fooled by Obama, why were they fooled by Kadima, and how soon will they find a good alternative?
