Bennett’s ‘My Israel’: Obama Spitting in Israel’s Face


bennett1My Israel, a grassroots Facebook-based Zionist group founded by Bayit Yehudi chairman MK Naftali Bennett, is asking its supporters to register their protest of President Barack Obama’s boycott of Ariel University students, on the U.S. ambassador’s Facebook page.

Obama has invited 1,000 students from all of Israel’s universities except Ariel to attend a speech he will deliver to the Israeli people – over the head of the Knesset and government – during his visit to Israel this week.

“President Obama is boycotting Ariel? Contact the U.S. Ambassador to Israel today,” My Israel told its 100,000 supporters.

“The U.S. embassy in Israel handed out about 1,000 invitations to students from all over Israel to come and listen to the speech,” the Facebook post says. “Who was not invited? Ariel.”

“This is a political act by the present of the U.S., which contradicts the position of the Israeli government, which decided to recognize Ariel as a university after a protracted process. This is like spitting in Israel’s face – no less than that.”

  1. Naftali, haven’t you fine the same thing to the Chareidim? Are only you alloqed – Obamba is not allowed? This is not a double standard in your eyes? We feel that you’ve betrayed the Chareidim in an amazingly unabashed way! It seems that YOU are the hater-in-lead!
