24 September 2008 - Town of Chelm endorses Obama

Israelis don't trust these people to run their own country, so why would Americans trust them to chose the next president?

Among Israelis, McCain is widely favored over Obama. But the Obama campaign is planning to have "real, live" Israelis call Jewish voters in swing states to reassure them that "he is not a Muslim."

Why does the Obama campaign assume Jews a) believe Obama is a Muslim; b) care? It's his policies people are worried about.

The commercial is certainly in poor taste in that Israelis should stay out of this election, even though the result will impact them.

But what do you mean when you say that "Israelis don't trust these people to run their own country"?

Other than Lipkin Shahak and Hazan the people who were in the video never ran for public office, so saying Israelis don't trust them to run their own country is misleading, at best.

Of course, regarding Lipkin Shahak and Hazan, the Israeli public actually DID trust them to run the country, as can be evidenced by the fact that they were elected to the Knesset.

"Among Israelis, McCain is widely favored over Obama."

Which poll/s did you use to come to this conclusion?

From a recent poll it seems the amongst Israelis the most widely help opinion is:
"they either had no preference or did not know".

Though it is odd (if true) that Israeli voters are calling American Jewish voters when most American Jewish voters strongly favor Obama. It really should be the other way round?
