It seems Obama is not very popular in Israel! (Apologies for the bigoted and foul language)
(My apologies for the foul language)
While so many Muslims, Christians, and Jews around the world celebrated President Obama's message of peace, tolerance, and mutual respect, many young Israelis (and some Americans too) in Jerusalem expressed real anger and racism against him.
Considering that many of the interviewees seem to be from the U.S. (based on the accent), are we to expect a condemnation from the Wiesenthal Center or ADL for the racial slurs made against our President and Black people?
It is puzzling to me why would so many young Israelis hate President Obama so much. All that he is advocating is an independent Palestine and peace between Palestinians and Israelis.
Is peace so scary?
