Looks like the most anti-Israel president in U.S. history, President Barack Obama (Jimmy Carter comes in a close second) is confirmed to speak at the upcoming annual AIPAC conference, which includes "more than 12,000 pro-Israel Americans" (according to an AIPAC announcement).
Oh joy, and thanks for making our day (NOT).
What part of anti-Israel do these "pro-Israel Americans" not get?
Probably the same part that allowed them to choose Chicago entrepreneur, Lee "Rosy" Rosenberg, as their new AIPAC president. Mr. Rosenberg, according to the Washington Post, was one of President Obama's staunchest Jewish allies during the 2008 presidential campaign, as well as one of his earliest political backers. He advised the president on foreign policy in the Middle East and Israel, and to that I would say: Rosy, you're doing a heckuva job!!

"Let me be very clear: The policy of strategic patience has ended. ... All options are on the table. If they elevate the threat of their weapons program to a level we believe requires action, that option is on the table."
