Why Does Obama Claim Support of Israel Then Support the Palestinians?
The Obama Administration has held a cold shoulder to Israel since the inauguration. They have basically shut Israel out of the intelligence loop since day one, and although they claim allegiance to Israel, their actions say something different.
The rising anti-Semitic sentiment is nothing new in the Arab world, but it seems that it is on the rise in America. Once again the barbaristic attitude against Jews is reaching the same crescendo that it did in 1938. The bigotry and hatred shown by Hitler has been replaced by the Muslim world as they continue to paint the Palestinian people as the victims, rather than the oppressors.

enormous positive impact on civil infrastructure and improved accessibility to
basic resources like water and electricity, as well as opening the region to the

after which the PA began administering sections of Judea and Samaria under the
Oslo Accords, resulted in a rise in per capita GDP from 904 to 3392 NIS. Under
the PA this number dropped to 2293 NIS.
Water supplied almost all Arab
communities in Judea and Samaria with water pipes between 1967 and 1993,
bringing the number of homes with indoor plumbing to 90%. The total water supply
doubled from 64 million cubic meters a year to 120 million as a result of
improved water access.
Life expectancy Arabs in Judea and Samaria have seen a
steady increase in life expectancy from 54 to 74 since 1967, close to that of
Israelis, and higher than the median life expectancy of 65 in most Arab

compared to a median of 67% for the Arab world as a whole.

infrastructure, have internet access - a figure significantly higher than almost
all Arab nations today.

It seems clear that the “oppressor” label given to the Israelis holds no credible claim. If the claim were true it seems ridiculous that the oppressor would first increase the quality of life for the oppressed first.
Maybe our president should read this report BEFORE his idiotic demand to return to the Israeli borders of 1967!
