Just wait till His Lame Duckisdency starting in Jan 2013. He'll throw the Jews under the bus so hard the pavement will crack. The only Arab and Iranian terrorists he doesn't invite to the White House will be the dead ones.
Obama will prove you wrong again and again during his second term. He is committed to Israel's security and is NOT a terrorist supporter.

President Obama has strongly objected to Palestinian efforts to unilaterally seek statehood recognition through the United Nations: “Efforts to delegitimize Israel will end in failure [and] symbolic actions to isolate Israel at the United Nations in September won't create an independent state.”

The Obama administration has repeatedly condemned instances of Palestinian incitement against Jews and Israel: “We have repeatedly raised with the Palestinian Authority leadership the need to consistently combat all forms of de-legitimization of Israel including denying historic Jewish connections to the land.”

President Obama has repeatedly demanded that Hamas, a terrorist organization, forgo violence, honor previous agreements, and recognize Israel before being considered a potential partner in negotiations. He has supported Israel’s refusal to negotiate with a Palestinian government that does not meet these conditions.

President Obama’s speeches clearly supported the importance of Israeli security in any peace deal: “Every state has the right to self-defense, and Israel must be able to defend itself -- by itself -- against any threat,” President Obama said.

President Obama called for a non-militarized Palestinian state and stated that “the full and phased withdrawal of Israeli military forces should be coordinated with the assumption of Palestinian security responsibility in a sovereign, non-militarized state. And the duration of this transition period must be agreed, and the effectiveness of security arrangements must be demonstrated.”

President Obama believes that “it is up to the Israelis and Palestinians to take action. No peace can be imposed upon them -- not by the United States; not by anybody else.”

Obama recognizes the importance of Jerusalem to the Jewish state and during his AIPAC speech said, “When I touched my hand against the Western Wall and placed my prayer between its ancient stones, I thought of all the centuries that the children of Israel had longed to return to their ancient homeland.”

It is a sign neither of courage nor power to shoot rockets at sleeping children, or to blow up old women on a bus. That’s not how moral authority is claimed; that’s how it is surrendered.”

The slaughter of innocent Israelis is not resistance—it’s injustice.”

"Palestinian leaders will not achieve peace or prosperity if Hamas insists on a path of terror and rejection.”

No country can be expected to negotiate with a terrorist organization sworn to its destruction. And we will continue to demand that Hamas accept the basic responsibilities of peace, including recognizing Israel’s right to exist and rejecting violence and adhering to all existing agreements...”

President Obama recognizes Israel’s very real threats in the region and has continually referred to America’s “unshakable” commitment to Israel’s security.

In an NPR interview Obama said, “I would say that given past statements surrounding Israel—the notion that they should be driven into the sea, that they should be annihilated, that they should be obliterated—the armed aggression that’s been directed toward them in the past—you can understand why not only Israelis would feel concerned, but the United States would feel it was important to back this stalwart ally.”

Under the Obama administration, Israel continues to stand as the leading beneficiary of U.S. Foreign Military Financing program security assistance funds for military training and equipment—accounting for over 50 percent of US FMF program funding, more than the total program funding provided to some 70 other countries combined.

Despite tough fiscal times, President Obama fought for and secured full funding for Israel in the FY 2011 appropriation bill, which includes $3 billion in Foreign Military Financing—the largest amount of funding for Israel in U.S. history.

In late 2009, more than 1,000 U.S. and Israeli troops participated in the largest-ever U.S.-Israel military exercise Juniper Cobra.

Israeli forces have been granted access to advanced U.S. military hardware (such as the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter), emergency stockpiles, and free or discounted equipment.

President Obama secured an additional $205 million to help produce an Israelideveloped short-range rocket defense system, the Iron Dome, which has recently helped defend Israeli communities against rocket attacks.

Prime Minister Netanyahu thanked President Obama in his speech to Congress for being “very generous in giving us tools to do the job of defending Israel on our own… [and] for your steadfast commitment to Israel's security. I know economic times are tough. I deeply appreciate this.”

The Obama administration has expanded bilateral security consultations and cooperation in an unprecedented manner on a wide range of shared security challenges, from counterterrorism and preventing illicit arms smuggling into Gaza to counter-proliferation.

Despite strong international pressure, President Obama vetoed the 2010 Security Council resolution condemning Israel’s settlement construction – making the US the only country on the 15-member Security Council not to support the resolution.

The Obama administration has voted against – and was often alone in doing so – seven anti-Israel resolutions at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.

The Administration believes the structural bias against Israel – including a standing agenda item for Israel, whereas all other countries are treated under a common item – is wrong.

The Obama administration condemned the Goldstone report on the Gaza conflict as “unbalanced, one-sided and basically unacceptable,” pointing to serious concerns with its recommendations.

The Obama administration lobbied heavily against the
Goldstone report advancing beyond the Human Rights Council.

The Obama administration expressed its solidarity with Israel in the aftermath of the Gaza flotilla incident, working behind the scenes to ensure a more balanced statement by the UN Security Council, one that included embracing Israel’s own independent inquiry into the raid.

During the presidential campaign in 2008 Obama visited Israel for a second time, and stated in Sderot, “I bring to Sderot an unshakable commitment to Israel’s security. The state of Israel faces determined enemies who seek its destruction. But it also has a friend and ally in the United States that will always stand by the people of Israel.”

President Obama stated in 2009 that “[Israel] is a stalwart ally of the United States. We have historical ties, emotional ties. As the only true democracy in the Middle East, it is a source of admiration and inspiration for the American people.”
