In Hebron, MK's call on Netanyahu to stand up to 'Hussein Obama'

20,000 people heard MK's from several parties (not just the Likud - contrary to the JPost headline) urge Prime Minister Netanyahu to stand firm against "President Hussein Obama" at a rally in Hebron on Thursday.
“The prime minister must say ‘no!’ to Barack Hussein Obama and ‘yes!’ to the nation of Israel,” Deputy Negev and Galilee Development Minister Ayoub Kara (Likud) told thousands of visitors who gathered in Hebron on Thursday.

A number of speakers addressed the holiday crowd, as part of a ceremony held by the Jewish community of Hebron to thank the government for adding the Cave of the Patriarchs to the national heritage list. At the ceremony, MKs who had pressured the ministers to vote for February’s cabinet decision were given certificates of thanks.

Palestinians and the international community protested the cabinet decision because they want the cave, which they call the Ibrahimi Mosque, and the entire West Bank city, as part of a Palestinian state.

Hebron’s Jewish community, settler leaders and MKs used the platform provided by the annual Pessah pilgrimage to the site to send a message to US President Obama and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that the Jewish people did not intend to abandon Jerusalem or Judea and Samaria.

“The masses that came here today is the guarantee and the proof that no one will move us from this cave, not even Hussein Obama,” Kara said.

He and the other lawmakers who spoke urged Netanyahu not to cave in to American pressure to stop Jewish construction in the West Bank and east Jerusalem.

“We have to authorize renewed building everywhere in the land,” said Kara, who is Druse.

“We, the descendents of Jethro, preserved the land for the nation of Israel when it was in the Diaspora. We will continue to watch over it together with them, today as well,” he said.
How's undermining Netanyahu working out, eh Barry?

Read it all.

Speaking of "only in Israel" it turns out Arabs like Passover Matzoh even more than the Jews do - and they do eat it for Passover.
