Obama's words prove him anti-Israel

September 29, 2011 

When President Barack Obama advised Israel to return to the borders that existed in 1967, he was totally out of touch with reality. How can Israel be expected to function within the confined area that is, in some places, only nine miles wide? By changing the borders, Israel would become an indefensible country that would be subjected to attacks from all sides by Hamas and Hezbollah.

I can only come to the conclusion that Obama is anti-Israel. Rep. Joe Walsh, from Illinois, came to the conclusion when he said that Obama is not pro-Israel.

To expect Israel to retreat to the 1967 borders is not in the interest of Israel. Let us not forget who started that war.
