I don't understand why Shiloh isn't a more popular pilgrimage spot for prayers. Personally, I don't go for praying at graves and tombs. And I also don't understand why more Israelis, Jews and thinking people all over the world don't understand or accept the fact that there is no way we can have peace with today's Arabs. Nothing we do or give will change that fact. Maybe things will be better in fifty or a hundred years and maybe not. But the real message is that we ought to stop the talking and begging and apologizing for breathing!
- Neither recognize our rights to be in the Jewish neighborhoods like Ramot, Ramat Eshkol, Gilo etc.
- Neither supports Israel's annexing Judea, Samaria etc.
So why didn't bush get the condemnation that Obama keeps getting?
It's simple. Obama's speech writers, the people he pays to right his speeches about Israel and to Jewish audiences aren't as good as the ones that Bush used. Remember that being a good actor, reading a pre-written speech with sincerity and pathos is a requirement for the American Presidency.
It's pretty well known that Eli Wiesel was involved in the writing of Bush's best "Israel speeches," and nobody is more eloquent on the subject. Obama's speech writers just don't know how to make him seem like he truly cares about Israel's survival.
