Obama's Wailing Wall Rally a Bust— Turns Into Mob Scene– Worshippers Scream at Obama!! …Update: Video

The Audacity of Holding a Political Rally at a Holy Site

Well, this was not exactly what he had in mind…
Only 4 hopey-changers showed up to campaign at the sacred Wailing Wall.

Fired up.

This probably has something to do with what Debbie Schlussel and the Wall Street Journal reported on earlier:

As of Tuesday morning, “Israelis for Obama,” had about 57 members. Mr. Jassen says only six actually live in Israel.

Israel is not fooled.

MORE… Drudge is reporting that it turned into a mob scene!
It’s going to be hard for the pro-Obama media to hide this:

OBAMA VISITS WESTERN WALL IN OLD CITY JERUSALEM… ARRIVES AT 5:08 AM LOCAL TIME [10:08 PM ET]… SUNRISE… SHOUTING MAN: ‘JERUSALEM IS NOT FOR SALE, OBAMA’… MOB SCENE… CHAOS… BOWING HIS HEAD IN PRAYER… PLACES NOTE IN WALL… POSES FOR PHOTOS… LOTS OF SHOUTING… LEAVES 5:20 AM… DEVELOPING..

Reuters finally posted a report on the event although they downplayed the scene:

Obama, wearing a Jewish skullcap, placed a prayer he had written in the wall and bowed his head while a rabbi read a psalm calling for peace in the holy city.

One worshipper chanted “Obama, Jerusalem is not for sale” and “Jerusalem is our land” as the Illinois senator stood at the wall, a relic of the ancient Jewish temple destroyed during Roman rule nearly 2,000 years ago.

THIS IS DEVASTATING FOR OBAMA!!
UPDATE: Here is the video:

It’s probably a good thing he went to the Wailing Wall so early in the morning.
This would have been even more of a disaster.

UPDATE: Meanwhile, across town Jewish groups were protesting Obama.
(Don’t expect to hear much about this, either.)
