Hundreds of Israelis Protest "Obama Infitada" in Gush Etzion
Another day… Another pi$$ed off American ally.
Protesters at Gush Etzion told reporters,
“Obama is an enemy of the state of Israel… The American people are on our side. They oppose what Obama is doing… We are telling the Prime Minister to ‘Crush the Obama Infitada.'”

Israel National News reported:
Close to 200 people converged on the Gush Etzion intersection on Saturday night to protest what they called the “Obama Intifada.” The ongoing Arab violence, which has seen a sharp increase in rock-throwings and even live-fire attacks on Israeli vehicles over the past week, continued Sunday morning with riots near Tekoa and an attempted stabbing east of Shechem.
The Gush Etzion demonstrators held signs reading, “Crush the Obama intifada! No more rock-throwing! Stop the building freeze against the Jews.”
Among the public figures who arrived and spoke at the Saturday night protest were Rabbis Dov Lior, Gideon Perl, Yosef Tzvi Rimon, and Yaron Durani; Rabbi Avi Weiss from New York, columnist Dr. Amiel Ungar, Atty. Elyakim Haetzni, Efrat Mayor Oded Revivi, and Kiryat Arba Mayor Malachi Levinger.
