    1. well, what do all the anti-Obamans have to say about this; he is misguided for sure when it comes to the “peace” process, but he is certainly no anti-semite as many try to make him out to be; see who’s in the White House & who he just nominated to the Supreme Court & who he lunches with for that matter…

      • Only reason he is pushing this is so that he can continue to pressure israel to divide jerusalem and deflect critisism that he is anti israel

      • This is a stunt he’s pulling so that he can “say” he’s pro israel
        Its not HIS money he’s spending, its OURS!!!
        If you want, “I” can spend your money very easily too……

    2. What’s it gonna help us against a nuclear Iran or against Suicide bombers entering Israel after road blocks are eased according to Obama’s demands?

      This is just wool over our eyes.

    3. The reason why the United States sells military hardware to the Arabs is to keep Israel dependent upon the United States. Like a heroin addiction.

      This is just a little fix to stoke Israel’s drug habit.

    4. If israel would not care so much about the insidental casualties they can easaly stop the rockets by sending large bombes to that spot. Alowing terrorists closer by giving land is suisidal. We have to get these jumpers down.

    5. What a waste of money. It would be better spent if the Communist-in-Chief would stop talking out of both sides of his butt and make sure that Hamas doesn’t get any weapons. PERIOD.
