Current President of the United States

Barack Obama

Presidential Candidate Barack Obama


Obama position on Israel

• Barack Obama states that the only way for Israel to achieve peace with their neighbors is to "begin with a clear and strong commitment to the security of Israel".

• Obama criticized those who denied the Holocaust, yet he supports talks with the Iranian President Ahmadinejad, who also denies the holocaust and eventually promises that a new one would come.

• Obama has praised past Israeli leaders for their kind gestures of peace towards Palestinians but refused to recognize their earlier attempts that led to violence and death of Israelis.

• Barack Obama mentions that he is in support of resumption of the aid to the Palestinian government with a condition that the government 'renounces terrorism'.

• Obama opines thus, "Nobody is suffering more than the Palestinian people." He has declared recently in his speech ?our enemies are not just terrorists, it's not just Hezbollah, it's not just Hamas, and it?s also cynicism."

• Obama contends that there is a need to preserve Israel as a Jewish state though it has its politicians and its security as well.

• With regard to the security of Israel Barack Obama stated, "you will not see, under my presidency, any slackening in commitment to Israel?s security."

• Obama stood strong with regard to Israel's right to defend itself from the rocket attacks and raids of Hezbollah.

• He hates characterization and rejects the term apartheid in any discussion with regard to Israel's progress.
