I love Sderot

Sorry to keep banging on about the Awful Obama but we are going to see a lot more of him in the coming months and, if his "charisma" convinces a gullible American public, he is destined to become the most powerful man in the world.

During his 36 hour visit to Israel - from which he spared one hour to see Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah - Obama was taken to the border town of Sderot for another photo opportunity. As with a visit to the Holocaust Museum, this has become an obligitary ritual for visiting politicians.

Speaking about the home-made rocket attacks on Sderot by militants in Gaza, Obama declared such "terror is intolerable".

What this opportunistic politician failed to mention is that, in the first five months of this year, 362 Palestinians and just 14 Israelis have been killed in and around Gaza. It is hard to escape the conclusion that Obama, too, views the conflict through the distorting lens of race - that Palestinian lives count for less than Israeli lives.
