Michael Ezrachi ,   St. Louis, USA   (09.03.08)
Do not believe biden, how can obama be pro israel when he surrounds himself with anti Israel advisors? Biden must think we are stupid. obama was pro Israel for a day, when he spoke to AIPAC, the next day he changed. Obama surrounds himself with carter's cronies, biden is a has been. If you care about Israel, you will vote for McCain.

6. Poster Number One Is A Liar
David ,   Los Angeles   (09.03.08)
Should we trust the one who has the Pat Buchanan (anti-Semite) supporter as his VP candidate, or the one who has a VP with just about the strongest record on Israel anywhere? Who has Obama surrounded himself with? Biden. If Obama is so anti-Israel, then why has he chosen the most pro-Israel guy in the Senate as his running mate? Is there some more senior advisor than Biden? Who? #1 You are just another liar trying to spread propaganda.
7. Ask the Democrats what concessions ....
Psalms83 ,   Selah   (09.03.08)
Israel will have to make to the Islamist for this increased security.... buyer beware
8. There is only one question .....
Terry ,   Eilat, Israel   (09.03.08)
Who is more likely to bomb Teheran? It isn't Obama, it isn't Biden. I don't doubt Biden's pro-Israel sentiments - I just think his approach is wrong, too pro-appeasement. Obama will be president, not Biden. And I don't trust Obama for a second. Does this mean McCain is the perfect candidate? No. Just better.
9. Israel to become more protected, Biden tells Jews
Tonatan ,   Jerusalem   (09.03.08)
anyone who believes this, is just dum, should the truth be known, the democrats are the ones who have made Israel weak and a laughing stock of the middle east, only the republicans and the Israeli right are willing to stand up and fight terrorism, democrats and the Israeli center and left are the appeasers of terrotism, and therefore the indirect cause of terrorism.
10. I love people who
citizen   (09.03.08)
love Israel from a far away.
11. Re:6. Poster Number One Is A Liar
Psalms83 ,   Selah   (09.03.08)
Just because Buchanan said the israel lobby influance needed to be reduced does not neccesarly make him anti-semetic...he was just opposed to its heavy handed efforts to influance congress.... During that period I also supported Buchanan because he was the only one that wasn't a globalist.. (both the democrats and the republicans drew thier cabinets from globalist think tanks.... which now are promoting the two state solution) after reading buchanans book I was disappoined on his view of the mid east.... but I don't concider him anti-semetic - if he ran again I would not vote for him.
12. If you think Rice is bad, Obama as President, Hashem Yishmor
Miriam ,   Israel   (09.03.08)
13. article on biden in florida
elliot ,   usa   (09.03.08)
your writer refers to 'house of reresentatives' and senate as if they are the same---they are not..biden is still a senator and will be when dems lose in november...israel needs constitutional reform-maybe a republic if they can read about one accurately-elsewhere!
14. This being so, why doesn't Obama say so himself
instead of leaving it to his vp? Do not trust Obama/Biden.
15. Biden shadows Obama success
Ari Rusila ,   JKL, Finland   (09.03.08)
I have considered Mr.Obama as good alternative to McCain with hope to see some change with US Foreign policy. However when he selected Biden as his running mate based e.g. Biden's experience about foreign affairs I doubt his judgment. Selecting a man on the record for stating that “all Serbs should be placed in Nazi-style concentration camps” during Senatorial deliberations in 1999 over NATO aggression on Serbia, and that United States ought to conduct a fascist, “Japanese-German style occupation” of Serbia. For quotations above I do not have direct source. However Mr. Biden's acts and speeches have showed a such Serb hate that probably they are correct. Also his son has recent racist comments in TV. If Mr.Obama needs help of this kind of redneck with his foreign policy so bay bay change. My expectations are now below zero level - unfortunately. More about US Foreign policy e.g.
16. #5: Sure Thing For *NO* Israel
emanon ,   USA   (09.03.08)
McCain will continue Bush's move, through Rice, to give Israel over to the Arabs. Rice is already promoting a plan to divide Jerusalem. McCain will only continue such policies and take them further. ISRAEL IS NOT A PORTION OF THE US FOR ANY US POLITICIAN TO GIVE AWAY! Why will these policies of giving away pieces of Israel be forced on Israel if McCain is elected? because his energy policy is oil based and needs an uninterrupted flow of oil from arab lands to be successful. He sees Israel as a pawn to be sacrificed to ensure oil flow to the US. Obama is pushing for use of more renewable energy resources and less of a dependency on oil and non-renewable resources. McCain also wants to further destabilize the world by DOUBLING the number of nuclear facilities in the US. This would be twice the number of potential terrorist targets in the US and twice the nuclear pollution problem the US now faces. For the sake of the US, for the sake of Israel, for the sake of the world, Obama in 2008.
17. No Pro Israel Track Record, Anti-Semetic Mentors, Yeah, Righ
David ,   Marietta, USA   (09.03.08)
Meanwhile, the Alaskan Governor wears an American-Israeli lapel pin on her suit, BEFORE, she was selected to be the VP. Oh yes, you can indeed trust Obama-Biden. As far as I would want to throw them. I feel the Jews at least in So florida may be starting to wake up to the reality of buyer's remorse. Obama was a really bad choice. The New York and LA libs are still swilling their kool-aid. It's going to be a Mcain victory, and that is GOOD for Israel and world wide Jewery!
18. American Jews should vote for America not Israel
Besalel ,   Kew Gardens, NY   (09.03.08)
Until you clown in Israel start electing Prime Ministers that are good for Israel we are not going to waste our vote voting for a President that is good for Israel. We will vote for a President that is good for me and mine. Get your act together, Israelis, stop voting for clowns like Olmert and the long line of clowns that preceded him and then we'll talk about an American President that is good for Israel.
19. A few instances why BHO is not the one for the Jews
Laura ,   Israel   (09.03.08)
Here’s a quick run-down of some of Barack Obama’s questionable and disturbing associations - and just the tip of the iceberg: * Long-time association with rabidly anti-Israel Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi. The Obamas were regular dinner guests at Khalidi’s Hyde Park home for years. * Ties to terrorist sympathizer Ali Abunimah, who runs the viciously anti-Israel web site Electronic Intifada. * Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Plenty of anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, pro-Hamas stuff there. * Anti-Israel foreign policy adviser Samantha Power — fired after calling Hillary Clinton a “monster.” * Anti-Israel foreign policy adviser Robert Malley — fired when it was revealed he has been holding talks with Hamas. * Hatem El-Hady, former official of the Hamas-linked charity Kindhearts, closed by the Justice Department. El-Hady’s web page—with Michelle Obama listed as an opt-in “friend”—suddenly vanished from the Obama campaign site with no explanation, after being exposed by the blogosphere. * Tony Rezko — the Syrian-born Chicago fixer currently in a whole lot of legal trouble. And there's so much more.
20. Sure it will...just like Obama and Biden plan on protecting
Steven Wilson ,   Anchorage, Alaska   (09.03.08)
everyones babies from infanticide. Obama is already running adds about women losing the right to kill their babies because they are an inconvenience when running an errrand or putting on your make up. Two guys who won't even help a helpless baby are going to rescue the Jews? They don't even care about their own kids....much less the plight of the Jews. They are withdrawing the military.....they are isolationists. They don't want to do anything but sit in the White House and watch as things go by. They have been doing it in the Senate for years. Collecting a paycheck, while voting for the anti war crowd and their leader, the environmental lobby. They'll save the endangered coachroach....they'll save a tree, they'll save a terrorist.....but you can bet....they won't save an Israeli.
21. David are blatantly lying.
Steven Wilson ,   Anchorage, Alaska   (09.03.08)
Just because she put on a pin, trying not to be rude , does it make her a Buchanon supporter. She wrote the newspaper and told them that she didn't support Pat Buchanon. Of course leaders in Israel shaked Arafat's your plan......they supported his candidacy also. I have friends who coach Palin's kids...she isn't anti semetic. If you listen to Waxman for to long.....he'll sell you swamp land in Gaza. The Democratic talking points of misinformation don't work with people who live in the same state as Palin. You are very ignorant about Alaska and our governor. I can gaurantee Biden will be backpeddling on his votes to shut down oil. Showing pictures af mountains and moose won't fly. There are no mountains in ANWR.....and the moose have nothing to eat up there.....there aren't any trees to forage on. Misleading information based on lies.......the Democratic party in a nutshell.
22. Obama for Israel
Andy ,   New Jersey   (09.03.08)
I wasnt aware that our US canadates need to meet with approval by foreign Nationals. Perhaps Israel needs to be concerned with its own elected officials and less with how another nation can serve thier intrests only. I fail to see how Israels' Intrests match US intrests in ANY way. Would You elect an official more concerned with American welfare then your own? I think not!
23. Oboma for Israel? or for America?
Andy ,   New Jersey, USA   (09.03.08)
One last thing. If you live in this country, benifit from this goverment, and consider yourself AMERICAN, then perhaps you should decide where your loyalties truly lie! If you are so concerened with Israel, then perhaps you should move there. No other group in America is so concerned and believes that the US should support and protect thier homeland above all other concerns. Are you American, or are you Israelie? If you feel that Israel, comes first, then leave because you are a traitor to America, no if and or buts!
24. United States of Israel
george archers ,   toronto ca   (09.03.08)
Biden should be representing Oilmart in Isreal As if Jews don't have enough homelands-
25. HELLO!! REMEMBER US???....
Kim ,   Dallas USA   (09.03.08)
the AMERICAN CITIZENS. The presidential elections are about who will best represent AMERICAN CITIZENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
26. Palin is NOT a friend to the Jewish People
Dan ,   San Diego, CA USA   (09.03.08)
I was leaning toward McCain due to his long support of Israel. However, his selection of Palin has given me pause. Not only is she a poor choice for VP but her views toward Israel and the Jewish people are alarming. Please read the link below
27. Who cares?
Paul ,   Australia   (09.03.08)
You all blather on about rising "anti-semitism" in the US, then you come on with statements like this about what contender in the US will be best for Israel. Its not your sodding election, yet you continue to interfere. If Israel behaved like a civilized nation for once then maybe it wouldn't be so important to you who the US Presidential picks were.
28. about Obama/McCain
Jules Gilbert ,   Boston, MA -- USA   (09.04.08)
A vote for Obama & Biden will hurt Israel if the Democrats are elected. While McCain isn't perfect, you can certainly believe what he says politically, and he is a stalwart defender of Israel. Whereas Biden recently made a public remark, admonishing Israel for it's plans to stop Iran after the election. He said "Israel will have to get used to a nuclear Iran." I'd much prefer to get used to eight years of McCain! -- And I am not a Republican, I've voted for candidates from each party over the course of the past 30 years or so... Also, several of Obama's advisors have a history of working closely with Chicago area Muslim organizations.
29. Biden and Israel
woody ,   Cambridge, UK   (09.08.08)
What a sick-o... supports the use of cluster bombs and doesn't care about the misery inflicted on citizens of the West Bank and Gaza, including the Christian communities there. Instead of shaking the bloody hands of nine Israeli prime ministers Biden should go see the situation on the ground in the Occupied Territories and learn who the real terrorists are.
30. Yiddish words
Greg   (09.10.08)
Bidden asked for advices for Yiddish words in his speach to one of the tutors teaching at the Yiddish online school
