Dr. Richard L. Rubinstein, Yale fellow, "Distinguished Professor of the Year", and Harvard Phd, states that president Obama's intention is to "correct the historical mistake of the creation of the state of Israel." Dr. Rubenstein states that president Obama due to his family heritage is extremely pro Muslim - to the point of "wanting to see the destruction of Israel."

While President Obama was still Senator Obama, he appeared at the 2008 AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) Conference. Senator Barack Obama pledged his support for a strong U.S.-Israel relationship during the closing session of AIPAC's 2008 Policy Conference. "We know that we cannot relent, we cannot yield, and as President I will never compromise when it comes to Israel's security," Senator Obama said.

This is Part I of a video regarding Barack Obama's stand on Israel, examining his advisors, friends, running mate, and words. Part I covers the introduction and his advisors. Please see Parts II and III for his friends, running mate, words, and conclusion.
The following is an article that was written during the 2008 campaign for President. I find it chilling to read this today. It is clear that the Jewish people were mis-led by President Obama. I'm sure if they would have paid attention to the warning signs about Senator Obama they would have voted differently.
The campaign speeches and rhetoric all sounded good but it has become increasingly clear that the Obama on the campaign trail, as well as while serving as Senator, was nothing but a lie. His speeches are empty. His actions as President have proven this. The left wing media aided and abetted in getting Obama elected by acting as cover for him and smearing those that were trying to warn America of who this man really is. I pray the Jewish community and those in support of Israel have awakened, as million of other Americans have, to who the real Barack Obama is. Barack Obama will go down in history as one of the most destructive presidents in the history of this great country.
The following is a copy of a letter found on the blog "The Ladner Report". The date of the post is February 27, 2008. I wonder if the author of the letter and the supporters feel the same way today.
"We are American Jews. We enthusiastically support Barack Obama.
We have decided to issue this statement because, increasingly, we are seeing inaccurate and often scurrilous attacks on his positions circulating on the Internet. We are not interested in stimulating an endorsement war with any other candidate. We are interested in setting the record straight.
We represent the breadth of the American Jewish community. Some of us are observant, some are not. We are old and young, male and female, and we represent a wide range of professions. A few of us are sabras; a few are converts. A few come from families that sought refuge in the United States from the Holocaust. Some of us have known Barack Obama personally for many years. Others were drawn to his stirring call for change.
Why do we support Senator Obama?
Our reasons are as diverse as our own community. Some of us support his history of enacting ethics reform legislation. Others admire that he opposed the Iraq war, even as many politicians supported it, against their own better judgment but because they feared the political consequences. Still others believe he will be the best on environmental issues and climate change, and that he will address Darfur with a sense of urgency. And others think he is best positioned to lead us toward health care reform and to tackle the considerable problems of the economy
Whatever our personal reasons, we all believe that Senator Obama is one of those unusual visionary leaders who comes once in a generation to inspire us to overcome what has, especially for the past seven years, divided and polarized us.
Despite this, we are increasingly seeing vicious and often nameless attacks on Senator Obama. Some of these are downright silly: that the Senator is Muslim ("proven" by his middle name, which he received, along with his other two names, from his father); that he refuses to say the Pledge of Allegiance; or that he would use a Koran instead of a Bible in his swearing-in ceremony.
Religious leaders of our own community have called for a halt in the "particularly abhorrent ... hateful emails that use falsehood and innuendo to mischaracterize Senator Barack Obama's religious beliefs and who he is as a person." The "Open Letter to the Jewish Community" was signed by Rabbis who lead Reform and Orthodox parts of Judaism, and officials from the American Jewish Congress, the American Jewish Committee, the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the National Council of Jewish Women, the Jewish Council for Public Affairs and the Anti-Defamation League.
More disturbing are the charges that electing Senator Obama would be "bad" for Israel.
The best answer to the last point comes from Senator Obama, himself. "I start with the premise that Israel is a stalwart ally of ours and their security cannot be compromised" Senator Obama pledged last year to an AIPAC audience: "Our job is to never forget that the threat of violence is real."
Other leaders and opinion makers confirm Senator Obama's strong support of Israel.
Alon Pinkas, a columnist for the Jerusalem Post and previously an Israeli diplomat who served as Consul general of Israel in the United States, wrote that "Obama's voting record on issues pertaining to Israelis [is] impeccable. …He has never outlined a policy that Israelis … find incompatible with what they believe a pro-Israeli Mid-East policy should be."
Shmuel Rosner, Chief U.S. correspondent for Ha'aretz, concluded that "Obama supports Israel. Period."
Mel Levine, former Congressman and AIPAC Board Member, whose standing and respect in the Jewish-American community is unquestioned, wrote recently that
"More than most, Jewish Americans have benefited from progressive ideas and inclusive politics, and no candidate better represents that tradition than Barack Obama. In fact, there is something essentially Jewish about Obama's political philosophy. "One" is the golden thread that runs throughout Jewish thought and belief . . . Oneness is a Jewish frame of mind. In his speeches and public statements, his legislation and his voting record, he has proven himself to be a stalwart friend of Israel, committed to helping Israel in its search for peace with its neighbors, while standing strong with Israel against those who do not share this vision."
As for the charges made regarding Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite who has said intemperate, distasteful, and inaccurate things about Jews and the Holocaust, we want to set the record straight. Senator Obama quickly denounced any statement of approval of Louis Farrakhan, saying "I decry racism and anti-Semitism in every form and strongly condemn the anti-Semitic statements made by Minister Farrakhan." About his own church, which publishes Trumpet Newsmagazine, Senator Obama said, "I assume that Trumpet Magazine made its own decision to honor Farrakhan based on his efforts to rehabilitate ex-offenders, but it is not a decision with which I agree."
Upon careful examination of Barack Obama's record, we believe he has the policy instincts, judgment, wisdom, and passion that we need in our next President of the United States. We hope that American Jews everywhere will join in our support for Senator Obama."
Fast forward to 2010........Reports on Jewish support for President Obama show a major decline.
"United States President Barack Obama has lost nearly half of his support among American Jews, a poll by the McLaughlin Group has shown.
The US Jews polled were asked whether they would: (a) vote to re-elect Obama, or (b) consider voting for someone else. 42% said they would vote for Obama and 46%, a plurality, preferred the second answer. 12% said they did not know or refused to answer."
The real question is, after the Jewish community has now witnessed first hand the anti-Israel policies of this President, how can anyone in the Jewish community support this man? President Obama and any future candidates must be judged by their actions and associates, not by their flowery speeches and campaign rhetoric. We all must realize that politicians will say what they think they want us to hear.....instead of listening to them, we need to be watching them. We need to pay attention to their actions.....Actions speak louder than words.!!!
