Beit El (INR) - Rabbi Chaim Richman of the Temple Institute made an impassioned response to US President Barack Obama's vision for dividing Israel's eternal capital, Jerusalem, and giving the Jewish people's ancestral heartland to PA Arabs.
"We are faced with many bin laden's every day, not just one, what gives you the right to decide we should negotiate with our bin laden's while you take yours out? " Richman asked of Obama.
"The only thing that makes it difficult to defend ourselves is American policy, " Richman said of Obama's assertion it would only be more difficult for Israel to defend herself in the future.
