Israeli Heckler Calls Rahm Emanuel "Anti-Semite"

After dissing the Israeli Prime Minister in Washington and seeing that votes were being lost, Obama has Emanuel trying to mend fences. Now he is inviting Netanyahu to the White House next week. What a farce! Hope the Jewish voters will see through this charade. Obama is a Muslim and the Jewish people should be scared of what he will do in the Mideast.

Many Israelis feel betrayed by Emanuel, whose father is Israeli. They blame him for what they see as President Obama's anti-Israel policy.

Ties between Israel and the U.S. have plummeted since Mr. Obama took office last year. The President demanded a freeze on Jewish construction in the West Bank and disputed East Jerusalem, charging that the settlements were an obstacle to peace with the Palestinians.

Israel initially refused, but under pressure from Washington it has since imposed a partial freeze on construction.

Two months ago, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was snubbed during a visit to the White House. The meeting was tense and there was no customary photo-op with the U.S. leader. This has created the popular perception here that Mr. Obama, and Emanuel, are selling Israel out to appease the Arab world.
