Israel tells Obama to Pound Sand

I believe that Israel is our best ally (hell, our only real ally) in the Middle East. Say what you want about Bahrain, Qatar, etc. They are all nice enough. But Israel is a democracy, and we owe them our support. Of all the foreign aid that we send abroad each year, we get more for our bucks with our Israeli friends.

So, naturally, Obama tries to piss them off by demanding that they stop building settlements. Not asking -- oh no. The Anointed One never asks. All to appease the freaking Palestinian terrorists, don't ya know.

This story about Barak (that's Ehud, not our Prez) ok'ing new construction warms my heart.
Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak approved the building of 455 housing units in the West Bank, defying U.S. demands for a freeze on settlement construction.
By the way, a great lesson we could learn from Israel is the wall. Israel has built a security wall on the West Bank, and it works. We should put one on our border with Mexico.
