VideoBite: Ed Koch Blasts Obama on Israel

Koch Outraged By Obama's Treatment of Israel

Former NYC Mayor Ed Koch:

"I have been a supporter of President Obama and went to Florida for him, urged Jews all over the country to vote for him saying that he would be just as good as John McCain on the security of Israel. I don't think it's true anymore."

"I believe that the Obama administration is willing to throw Israel under the bus in order to please Muslim nations," Koch said.

While Koch has had his problems with the Democrats he has actually been a supporter of Obama. I do understand why people are leary of Obama's stance towards Israel at this time. I also believe the jury should remain out until there is more definitive info. Nothing anyone has done in years prior was successful, and he is trying his own approach. Whether that approach is as uncompromisingly friensdly to Israel, or is successful, or has any merit on its own...time will tell.

True that time will fear is that he is empowering rejectionism. Witness the hardening of positions in the Palestinian Authority, Jerusalem riots and the increased missile launchings since Obama's "intervention."
