Ehud Barack vs, Wingnuts on Israel

Conservative view of Obama's stance toward Israel:

"Obama Attacks Israel at UN General Assembly
Barack Obama just slammed Israel at the United Nations General Assembly this morning.

Obama just put Israel "on the chopping block," said former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton."

This, from Gateway Pundit, but similar things are all over the conservative world.

Israeli defense minister, Ehud Barak: "Obama is investing a lot of his political capital in the peace process, and it's important that we don't waste this moment."

Slight difference in tone there, huh? I wonder who to trust more on this issue, Ehud Barak or John Bolton.

Update: This comment from the Israeli newspaper Haaretz: "Netanyahu sees confirmation of Israel positions in Obama's first UN speech"

Netanyahu is, as I am sure you all know, a very conservative politician.

Our lying, seditious, disloyal Republicans will say and do anything to damage Obama, no matter how important the issue is, or what the truth is. If this doesn't represent the greatest threat to the continued existence of our nation, I don't know what it might be.
