Washington, October 8 – Aides to US President Barack Obama expressed displeasure today over not being informed of plans to assemble tens of thousands of makeshift residential structures over the last week in Jewish communities in areas both Israel and the Palestinians claim.

The huts mostly consist of wood panels, or of metal frames holding up canvas walls, with reeds or palm leaves as roofing. Satellite images and eyewitness reports alerted the Obama administration of the flurry of new construction activity, all of which appears to be taking place within the boundaries of existing Jewish communities in those contentious areas. The structures are apparently functioning as additional living space, as the inhabitants of those communities have been observed transferring tables, chairs, beds, and even rugs into the booth-like structures.

The administration stopped short of actively rebuking the Netanyahu government over the construction, as the effort has the hallmarks of a grass-roots initiative and not an officially sanctioned building spree of the kind that has infuriated White House officials in the past. In fact, hundreds of thousands of such structures have been hastily built over the last week even within the pre-1967 lines, indicating broad popular support for the initiative. However, Obama aides did communicate the president’s concern over any kind of development on land claimed by Palestinians for a state.

Another factor contributing to the administration’s muted response is the unlikelihood that the structures have been approved by Israeli government authorities. The addition of the booths  – or, in many cases, simply the covering of an existing walled patio or terrace with the reed or leaf roofs – almost certainly constitutes a zoning violation wherever it occurs, and in the White House’s assessment the Israeli authorities are almost certain to inform the residents of their obligation to dismantle the structures.

“We’ve had a few cases of a similar nature even in the US,” said a White House staffer speaking on condition of anonymity. “We’ve had groups of Jews, sometimes entire communities, building these temporary structures that are in clear violation of building codes, zoning designation, and other municipal approvals necessary for the erection of such entities. People complain about it, the town or city gives the owners a couple of weeks’ notice to take down the structure, and they comply. At this point we’re going to assume the same process will play out over in the West Bank, though I imagine they’ll have some difficulty notifying every single homeowner right away.”

“It always seems to happen this time of year, too,” mused the official. “I wonder if there’s some way to predict the phenomenon?”

  1. Apparently Obama is surrounded by a bunch of ignorant staff who do not know anything about Israel or the Jewish people and keep trying to find ways to blame them for something. Wondering why it happens at the same time each year , how about that , it seems to be a pattern, needs investigation.

  2. I haven’t had such a good laugh in a long time. The sheer ignorance about Sukkot is overwhelming. They actually believe we comply to remove the sukkahs without knowing G-d commanded us to keep only 8 days. Who needs permission to question G-d.

  3. As a Jew living in the USA,I want to know :who in the H-ll cares what Obama is concerned about ?? Does he really matter?? He has shown himself to be a Islamophile devoted to the Islamist cause of the Muslim Brotherhood. He is the only western leader who is unabashedly positive about the “brotherhood”. Every move he has made hsas been to hurt israel and to denigrate the government of Israel. He demanded a building freeze before the Arabs ever thought of such a demand. He would be easier and more above board for Israel ,if he would cut out the BS and just let everyone know his true intent.. His behavior makes Jimmy Carter look like a Jew…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

  4. You seemed to have forgotten that over 72% of the Jewish electorate voted for this anti semite not once but twice. On top of that these same Jews donated hundreds of millions of dollars to Obama’s campaign as well as other Democratic anti semites. So if you want to blame someone, first look into a mirror. Most probably you voted for Obama.

  5. What is it with Obama? He celebrates Passover in the White House and has no clue that Sukkot involves building sukkahs? It’s not enough that he tells Israel where and where not to build in the unified city of Jerusalem – now – what does he want – housing permits for sukkahs? Is there not anything else on his international plate to be concerned about? This is beyond pathetic.

  6. Is this any of the US govs business??? How about they try to go up in Muslims faces (or which ever ends up) and say you can’t do that without gov permission. I would imagine both ends would laugh. Obama gov is embarrassing.

  7. We got pro isis updaters hiding behind the screen telling lies and setting us up using our own people. Lolxxxxxx setting up Jews and Christians as usual none of these groups comingto yyou are supporters. They are workingover time to rally aall of our own alliance against us. This is what they always do these non Jewish non Christian schmuks.

  8. How low can the Obama administration go with their dislike of Jews? Next, they will complain and will demand that Jews ask their permission to use public bathrooms in these same neighborhoods!? What is with Barak Hussein Obama and his aides but pure anti-Semitism, insolent and disparaging attitude towards Jews, their faith, their rights to sovereignty in their homeland and their rights to freedom of religion?! This is a chutzpah of the first order.

  9. Not true; I did not vote for him not even once. I saw through his BS right away, but sadly, US Jews priorities are upside down, not only when it comes to supporting Israel but also what is good for America. The Left is poison, and it is the fastest growing “religion” that is soft tyranny and fascism.

  10. Just checked, it’s not April Fool’s day and certainly not Purim so either there are complete idiots running the White House (which many would not doubt!!!) or the anti-semitic face of members of the Administration is showing its ugly face once again. One can only hope this is a joke, not matter how poor in taste it might be, if not the depth of hatred to Israel is much worse than many think and does not augur well for the rest of Obama’s time in office.

  11. I am an American Jew and I don’t give a damn what the U.S. administration thinks about Israel. All they do is condemn Netanyahu for what he does. Get over it U.S. Israel has a right to build where it wants. Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

  12. Why in the heck should the U.S. be informed?? And the arrogance to “complain”. Israel is NOT a state of the the U.S. – Israel is their own independent state!!!!! I am sure that if it had something to do with Ramadan – they wouldn’t be complaining and have their shorts bunched up!! I am so fed up with this administration – I cannot even begin to put it into words!!!!!!!!

  13. because you use our money and are in our budget like a state.. thats why.. because we cater to your special interest groups like aipac to our detriment.. thats why.. because when hits the fan we are the sole ally you can depend on..thats why..and im out

  14. Who is the advisor??? The people coming to you from behind the back telling lies misguiding you and your official advisors too. So the unofficial cyber advisors misguiding people online are misguiding the entire administration except the intelligence. Which is why this unofficial advisory board online going to administration officials and their advisors are a threat because they are instigating and lying to administration and hence will drag them down for these people are setting them up too. Understood??? Now we have foxed it all and we are back on track because these s of anti semitic and anti Christian low lives are many online and they target those church going Christians that are pro Jewish pro Israeli. So our own set up against our own by non Jewish non christian schmuks. As simple as that.

  15. This MUST be a joke. Please someone tell me it is!!! Here in Los Angeles we have been trying to get illegal unsafe buildings shut down for years and years, and can’t get any reponse from City Government. Yet OBUMMER condemns building of sukkot IN ISRAEL???? eff him and his caliphate.

  16. Obama is seriously delusional! He thinks he is king of the world! He needs to be put in a straight jacket and taken to an insane asylum so they can complete the lobotomy they apparently started at an earlier time! Seriously…that jackass has mental issues!

  17. Where the hell does America, Obama, and administration, come off to dictate what Israel can, or cannot do? why does Israel need to notify the U.S.? funny… but when it comes to the Gazan Arabs, they don’t know how to ‘knock themselves out’ to please them/help them_______ why doesn’t Obama take it up with G-d?

  18. Tell the Obama administration to stop the whining! By the way does the ISraeli government know that Obama showed the American people a forged birth certificate and selective service card? They should contact The Maricopa County Sheriff office for all evidence and info. To be released to the public soon. and Israeli media should be present.

  19. First of all Sukkahs are not permanent structures usually built on your own property they are somewhat like tents and are taken down when the holiday ends. How does this hurt anyone. This is a yearly celebration nothing new or out of the ordinary. What absolute ignorance. Just idiots looking for a reason to fight

  20. Why does any USA administration think they can tell Israel what to do, just because USA gives military aid to Israel which Israel is the best allied in the middle east to the USA, which the Obama administration has treated Iran and Iraq and ISIS better then Israel. Israel is its own country and not owned by any USA government agency!

  21. Imam Obama claimed to know about Judaism. How many Sukkah’s have been built since Imam Obama took office? Should Israel have the right to tell Americans where they can and cannot build? Obama and the Obamites are enemies of Israel. The Valley of Jehoshaphat will have many Obamtes to be judged.

  22. I FAIL TO SEE ANY HUMOR IN THIS…and yes i did believe it….given our government and happenings these days if it were true, i would not be surprised…next time save your pathetic humor for purim or your close friends…this is not funny…i notice that you have seen fit to delete the ‘brilliant’ writers name from the article now…i assume he doesn’t want to be known for what we all think of him and what he really is.

  23. One must blend politics and religion to understand endtimes Bible prophecy,Old Testament and New, in the global distain for Israel ,this is just advertisement , and I am in Perpetual apology for what my government has done,is doing, and will still do! Know I am doing the absolute best I can do, PRAYING!! Peace n Love

  24. Nurik Greener. Yes I know. But they are listed ethnically as Jews. And who knows, neither you nor I if they worship their judusm? So your statement has to be only
    an opinion, sorry. In America people are looked at etnnically. If someone is from
    Cnina, they are Chinese, from India, they are their heritage, same with mexicans, blacks
    , whites, japanese, etc. No religion is even thought about when it comes to their
    idenity. For instance, a couple and young man go to my christian church. But in
    public no one would see, buddish, hindu, or Christian. Thats a really big difference from
    Jewish thinking. I think they are the only people who think religion makes them Jewish only. Not arguing your beliefs, i can see that importance in your thinking and in knowing your history with G d. But again
    , unless you know the personal lives and worship of these 70 per cents etnic Jews
    you cannot say they are not Jewish, correct ? And im sure someone would certainly know of this tradition. They would not be clueless about a heritage that they do or do not keep. And ive never met a ethnic Jew who wouldnt stand by Israel. Ever, worshipping or non worshipping..s

  25. How can this administration be so ignorant of Jewish customs.? I am a devote Mormon raised in Utah and I knew of Jewish customs when I was in high school, even though I did not know any Jews. He and his administration needs to broaden their knowlege of world religions beyond Islam, and that includes Christianity.

  26. Apparently Obama is surrounded by a bunch of ignorant staff who do not know anything about Israel or the Jewish people and keep trying to find ways to blame them for something. Wondering why it happens at the same time each year , how about that , it seems to be a pattern, needs investigation.

  27. I am distressed the borders to the south of USA are lawless and immigration laws are not enforced. AS A RESULT HOSPITALS ARE GOING BANKRUPT, LAWLESS NEW NEW DISEASES ARE COMING INTO THE USA, AND LEGAL TAXPAYERS WILL HAVE TO PAY MORE REAL ESTATE TAXES TO PAY FOR THE CHILDREN OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. What hypocrisy on the part of our President.

  28. what do you expect from a president who turn the arab world into islamique states all over ,… as you know he is a devoted muslim… I never dreamed of a muslim president of united states…he hate america and destroy American spirit…

  29. The Narcisstic, ego-driven, sociopathic Muslim/Islamic President is not who Israel or any Jew within the US. Jews at this time of year for over 5,000 years build a temporary structure in the Fall around this time to worship the fruits of the earth. Is Obama involved? No, it is not his business to interfere with Jewish tradition, belief, and he is paranoid and delusional. TIME TO REMOVE THIS KENYAN BORN PRESIDENT FROM OFFICE.

  30. As a Jew living in the USA,I want to know :who in the H-ll cares what Obama is concerned about ?? Does he really matter?? He has shown himself to be a Islamophile devoted to the Islamist cause of the Muslim Brotherhood. He is the only western leader who is unabashedly positive about the "brotherhood". Every move he has made hsas been to hurt israel and to denigrate the government of Israel. He demanded a building freeze before the Arabs ever thought of such a demand. He would be easier and more above board for Israel ,if he would cut out the BS and just let everyone know his true intent.. His behavior makes Jimmy Carter look like a Jew…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

  31. Obama fancies himself DICKTATOR of the world. Israel is a NATION AND NOT PART OF THE UNITED STATES BULL—- Presidential agenda. ISRAEL IS A SOVERIGN AND RIGHTEOUS NATION WHO ONLY ANSWERS TO HASHEM not the US President on when they can build any form of structures, temporary or permanent within Israel. This President is delusional and must be removed from office.

  32. Donna, Jews/Judaism is a Relio-Nationality. There is no percentage to it. If your mother is Jewish then you are legally Jewish, this is Jewish law as it appears in the Torah. There is a racial quality to being Jewish, as there are genetic diseases that occur only in Jews.

    You are wrong when you say they are the only people who think religion makes them Jewish. When it comes to Judaism as a religion, many Jews do not practice it but are still Jews. Converts are Jews but not genetically.

  33. they are dense, they don’t know about the Sukka Holiday, Feast of Tabernacles. And why should they care about what Israel does as Iraq, Syria, Africa, Ukraine, are in chaos and Iran has not been stopped. Mind your own business and concentrate on protecting our homeland, instead of mixing in Israels affairs, Mr. O and Mr. K.

  34. Here’s an idea, Obama. Put down the Quran, study the history, religion and culture of Israel. It is the ONLY Democratic state in the Middle East. Open your eyes and BIG ears, close your negative/personal feelings aside and disrespect for Israel. Everything is constantly been proven and resented to you about and by their enemies. The truth will come to the LIGHT! Learn to communicate with your inept staff and Cabinet members.

  35. What is it with Obama? He celebrates Passover in the White House and has no clue that Sukkot involves builing sukkahs? It's not enough that he tells Israel where and where not to build in the unified city of Jerusalem – now – what does he want – housing permits for sukkahs? Is there not anything else on his international plate to be concerned about? This is beyond pathetic.

  36. You seemed to have forgotten that over 72% of the Jewish electorate voted for this anti semite not once but twice. On top of that these same Jews donated hundreds of millions of dollars to Obama's campaign as well as other Democratic anti semites. So if you want to blame someone, first look into a mirror. Most probably you voted for Obama.

  37. This is an obvious and devious trick by the Jews to keep from catching Ebola. Now, when a non Jew with Ebola knocks on their front door in order to infect them, they will think nobody is home and leave, infecting Christians and Muslims instead. Those Jews are inscrutable. Or is that the Asians???

  38. 70 per cent of President Obamas administration is Jewish. The presidental advisor is Jewish. So im thinking its not sukkots. There is no way they wouldnt know that. But I agree, President Obama needs to be telling Putin to leave nuclear missles out of Ukraine. Oh thats right he did. Putin just ignores him. Israel should do the same. Housing is very low key in the middle east and Israel doesnt need our permission. Just like Putin.

  39. Seriously..?! Ok OBAMA, next time you host a independance day you notify all your allies and neighbour countries just incase they might be offended!! Do you actually get people that selfcentred and ignorant about other cultures and their believes?! The US really does think they rule the world…? At least in their little minds!

  40. Branwen Holly. Im just going by an previous article and many other Jewish thoughts on this matter. Im thinking there are many Jews who think very differently about who is a Jew? Thats why I said this.

  41. President Obama, why on earth do you think Israel has to ask your permission to build houses on their own land? Do YOU ask them permission to build anywhere in America? You sir are on very thin ice with your extreme disloyalty to Israel and your lack of support to our BEST ALLY ISRAEL! THIS is the land that GOD…the GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC and JACOB said was HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE and HE SAID that He would bless those who bless her and CURSE those who curse her! I would be very careful Mr. Obama! Cause you aren’t messing with just Israel! You are messing with the apple of God’s Eye! I would think twice if I were you!

  42. The US Government continues to make a fool of itself. Is their not one person in this Government with a brain in their head. Surely if they are so distressed that Israel is building these makeshift dwellings all over Israel, there would be a reason for this, surely they would first contact the Israeli Embassy or Ambassador to the USA to inquire if they were aware of this act of defiance on Israels part. Come on Obuma and Cronnies, us your heads, before making yourselves look even more stupid.

  43. This is a joke right ? if the US government is so obtuse it is unaware of Sukkot we have a problem, must be carry over from GW Bush administration when they were often unaware of the difference between Shia and Sunni followers of Islam 🙁

  44. Only republicans keep saying President Obama is a Muslim. Its can be found inaccurate if anyone took the time to look
    He was raised in a very elite Catholic school. Just for good educational

    purposes. He was not Catholic as many
    who attend these schools are not also. And to say he is totally against Israel, one would

    have to ask these questions? The USA just funded money for Isrsels Irone Drone. The USA just gave Israel some veey high tech missles. Its a fact that even BIBI says that he talks with the Obama administration all the time. Israel and America talked more among their leaders than America and any other country. At least give credit where credit is due..

  45. How low can the Obama administration go with their dislike of Jews? Next, they will complain and will demand that Jews ask their permission to use public bathrooms in these same neighborhoods!? What is with Barak Hussein Obama and his aides but pure anti-Semitism, insolent and disparaging attitude towards Jews, their faith, their rights to sovereignty in their homeland and their rights to freedom of religion?!

  47. I FAIL TO SEE ANY HUMOR IN THIS…and yes i did believe it….given our government and happenings these days if it were true, i would not be surprised…next time save your pathetic humor for purim our your close friends…this is not funny

  48. it happens every year that should have been a clue that it would happen this year!! plus why should they be informed? the American people should be informed that this government will violate the constitution, betray its allies and destroy America and the American people.. where was our warning?? TRATORS!!!

  49. So now that we have Obama's admininistration we are expected to give up our freedom to practice religion among other freedoms and rights of citizens. Washington' s attitude towards Israel is like a master towards a pet. Are we going to stand for it? We are being pushed around and abused because kindness is taken for a weakness. Barbarianism and sociapathism is being respected as "strength", "power". It is time for us to stand strong and claim respect.Claim OUR LAND instead of giving it away piece by piece.

  50. Nurik Greener. Yes I know. But they are listed ethnically as Jews. And who knows, neither you nor I if they worship their judusm? So your statement has to be only

  51. I think he does what he has to do to save face. Personally, in his personal life, I don’t think he cares about Israel, Judaism, or Christianity for that matter. Of course I can’t prove it, but things he says and things he does and body language and my gut feeling are what I have to go on.

  52. I was wondering if this is a joke as well. But in reality there are some places in the US that won’t let chlldren sell lemonade in front of their own homes without a permit!! And what about the homeowner associations wouldn’t allow american flags to be flown on holidays or when a son or daughter in the military was returning home. All ridiculous and over regulation.

  53. How this administration can be so ignorant of Jewish customs.? I am a devote Mormon raised in Utah and I knew of Jewish customs when I was in high school, even though I did not know any Jews. He and his administration needs to broaden their knowlege of world religions beyond Islam, and that include Christianity.

  54. Sukkot is a major Jewish holiday dating back to Biblical times. Israel is a sovereign Country and does not need America’s (or any other country’s) permission for their inhabitants to erect Sukkahs. They are temporary dwellings. This is partly a harvest festival on which the American Thanksgiving is based. Read the Bible to learn more about this centuries old holiday.

  55. Donna, Jews/Judaism is a Relio-Nationality. There is no percentage to it. If your mother is Jewish then you are legally Jewish, this is Jewish law as it appears in the Torah. There is a racial quality to being Jewish, as there are genetic diseases that occur only in Jews.

    You are wrong when you say they are the only people who think religion makes them Jewish. When it comes to Judaism as a religion, many Jews do not practice it but are still Jews. Converts are Jews but not genetically.

Open your eyes and BIG ears, close your negative/personal feelings aside and disrespect for Israel. Everything is constantly been proven and resented to you about and by their enemies. The truth will come to the LIGHT!

  57. IF this is true, Then OUR LIAR IN CHIEF and his staff are BIGGER IDIOTS than anybody ever thought they were. It happens ever year at the same time. It even happens in the U.S. and it called the holiday of SUKKAH! Happy SUKKAH to everybody!

  58. This is an obvious and devious trick by the Jews to keep from catching Ebola. Now, when a non Jew with Ebola knocks on their front door in order to infect them, they will think nobody is home and leave, infecting Christians and Muslims instead. Those Jews are inscrutable.

  60. The similarities are astounding – except I think Hitler was highly educated, despite having a low level of formal education, He educated himself to the enth degree and surrounded himself with best of "the BEST".

  61. Only republicans keep saying President Obama is a Muslim. Its can be found inaccurate if anyone took the time to look
    He was raised in a very elite Catholic school. Just for good educational

Its a fact that even BIBI says that he talks with the Obama administration all the time. Israel and America talked more among their leaders than America and any other country. At least give credit where credit is due..

  62. we should not have to have arms or approval from the US. Screw Obama and if you did homework you would know he swore in on the Quoran and bible and also wears a ring that says Allah is the only g-d in Arabic, look you can find the pics. So be quiet if you are not 100% behind Israel.

  63. PLEASE READ: THIS IS A HOAX!!! I dont have a clue why ‘the jewish press’ is reprinting this….it evidently was supposed to be a humorous article and many of us believed it….IT IS NOT REAL….in fact i assume the writer has removed his name so that the people who don’t know him won’t hate him along with those who do know him….it is not funny at all…with so much hatred and intensity in the world these days it would take a demented mind to write and then print such crap….on another page where many hundreds of people believe it and posted their dismay the ‘jewish press’ did eventually post a note saying that they had not idea that people would actually believe it. and it was just a joke…….Let’s see how long my comment remains here before the lovely people at ‘the jewish press’ have it removed

  64. PLEASE NOTE: the jewish press here has reposted this article now on Facebook…it just came back on and a new set of people are becoming upset by it….it would be nice if we all got together on the Facebook posting and let them know how funny we really think they are!!!

  65. Israel is only democratic if you are a Jew,, it has to be the most religiously bias state that isn’t Islamic,, people keep asking why the US keeps putting their nose in Israel’s business,, well they sure don’t complain when they get billions of dollars in mil aid,, funny how that is,,, stay out of Israel’s concerns unless they get something free,, how Jewish

  66. Workimg in the news business, imhave to question the validity of this arricle. It starrsmoff with..aides take displeasure..what ades? Where was rhis meering this was announced? No information other than one statement. Its like, well I said it, so its true. Why not more details on just where and how this writer knows this as a fact? Nope, it wouldnt fly at a major news site, at all!! You just cant say or write things in this manner.

  67. I was wondering if this is a joke as well. But in reality there are some places in the US that won't let chlldren sell lemonade in front of their own homes without a permit!! And what about the homeowner associations wouldn't allow american flaga to be flown on holidays or when a son or daughter in the military was returning home. All ridiculous and over regulation.

  68. I think he does what he has to do to save face. Personally, in his personal life, I don't think he cares about Israel, Judaism, or Christianity for that matter. Of course I can't prove it, but things he says and things he does and body language and my gut feeling are what I have to go on.

  69. Working in the news business, I am having to question the validity of this article. It starts off with..aides take displeasure..well what aides are we taking about?Where was this meeting where this was announced? No other information is given to back up that first statement. Its like..I said it, so its
    true .How about the details on how and where rhis writer found this as factual. Nope, it wouldnt fly at a major newsite at all!! You can never just write things in this manner. No author is named. Reason?

  70. Muslims go to Catholics schools, in fact in Ireland they are protesting the school for teaching religious education and having a cross on the crest of the official uniform Tee Shirt.

  71. PLEASE NOTE: THIS ARTICLE IS A HOAX:…. the jewish press here has reposted this article now on Facebook…it just came back on and a new set of people are becoming upset by it….it would be nice if we all got together on the Facebook posting and let them know how funny we really think they are!!!

  72. Actually Obama refused to fund Israel for the Iron DOME, not drone. Israel provides the US with quite a lot of high tech stuff from military equipment to the computer you are using. Bibi can’t stand Obama and Obama has been quite unprofessional and contemptuous toward Bibi. Bibi has at least been worthy of this leadership and treated Obama civilly. Obama on the other hand made Bibi and others in his party come through the back door of the White House.

  73. Branwen Holly Really in the Torah? All the lineages are Patriarchal so how can it be in the Torah if your mother is Jewish you are? If the Mother is Jewish comes from the Rabbis during the centuries when Jewish women were raped to wipe out the pure Jewish bloodlines. So the Rabbi’s declared that if the Mother is Jewish so is the child. But as I said, the Torah has Patriarchal lineages. The fact of the matter is weather the Mother or the Father is Jewish the child has Jewish blood. Blood labs and can test the DNA of your blood and find out if you are Jewish. They can even tell what tribe you are from.

  74. Working in the news business, I am having to question the validity of this article. It starts off with..aides take displeasure..well what aides are we taking about?Where was this meeting where this was announced? No other information is given to back up that first statement.

  75. Come on ….
    1) That was satire
    2) He never 'swore in on the Quoran. Look here …
    http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2007/dec/20/chain-email/obama-sworn-in-on-his-bible/
    3) The ring story is also bogus. Look here …. http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/weddingring.asp
    4) There are lots of reasons to be critical of our President. But when you get lost in the muck, you lose your arguments
    5) I'm 100% behind Israel (when Israel does the right things).

  76. Actually Obama refused to fund Israel for the Iron DOME, not drone. Israel provides the US with quite a lot of high tech stuff from military equipment to the computer you are using. Bibi can't stand Obama and Obama has been quite unprofessional and contemptuous toward Bibi. Bibi has at least been worthy of this leadership and treated Obama civilly. Obama on the other hand made Bibi and others in his party come through the back door of the White House.

  77. What I would like to know is, what on earth does it have to do with Obama. It is not his country! He has no say in ISRAEL, so why should it bother him? Strange that this is a problem to him, but yet he doesn’t seem to have a problem with muslims killing people all over the world! Nothing gets done about that!!!

  78. Good one!!! Great satire, but so close to the truth, As a Christian American who supports Israel, I pray this is read by Obama and he would realize he needs to butt out of the affairs of Israel,

  79. Jeeze. I dont see it written as a satire, doesnt read as such, and many people are taking it seriously from comments. All im saying is it isnt written sarcastily..And the koran comment was made because of another comment on this post. I know the subject. .

  81. Kathleen, I love BIBI. I watched him on the UN with his speech. I totally respect him. But you are wrong. The USA did give momey for, the iron drome. Obama did delay it, but it was still fiven. And much more has been set aside for Israel to draw from in the future. But I agree, Obama has been wishy washy between Palestine and Israel. As far as Muslims going to a Catholic school in Ireland. That really surprises me. Im Catholic. And I can say after 2000 years of our church their protests will only get them expelled. I know that to be a fact. The Catholic faith has never given in to its own members as far as any changes. They might as well leave.

  83. Israel is a free and independent country and does NOT need or be required to report to the USA what we do. With Jews living in the USA, if the CIA is not familiar with the Jewish holiday of Sukkot but is familiar only with the pagan holidays of holloween, Christmas, and Easter which is an animal pagan ritual, it is no wonder they did not share their intelligence with Israel when it became aware of arab hostilities towards Israel as required by treaty and Jonathan Pollard is the true Amercian who did his job as a true and loyal american while showing the world the true colors of the state department which no one in the world trusts except the irish.

  85. No sure if you all actually read this – but this is a satire article. And the US provides billions in aid to Israel. More so now than in any time in history. Not to mention military and intelligence aid. Israel’s business is American business.

  86. I think the White House knows this is in the Bible , Here’s an idea, Obama. Put down the Quran, study the history, religion and culture of Israel. It is the ONLY Democratic state in the Middle East. Open your eyes and BIG ears, close your negative/personal feelings aside and disrespect for Israel. Everything is constantly been proven and resented to you about and by their enemies. The truth will come to the LIGHT! Learn to communicate with your inept staff and Cabinet members.

  87. Shame on you, you should always be behind Israel and yes Michelle held his family Quoran under the bible, you look it up. I am sure you can find sites to back you up, like I can. I am sure the Government never cleans anything up or puts false things on the internet. I have had false people talk to me about Israel and b e very hateful. when I reported it, the guy traced the IP to a computer in the Atlanta Capitol building(government anyone) so you may think you know it all, you don't. the fact you call Hussein Obama our president, shows where you stand, so shut up.

  88. I can find websites to back me up, you should care more about Israel Than Barrack Hussein Obama(who everyone claims is not Muslim) shock too you wasalam aliyakum I converted from Islam and know a lot more than you will ever about the other side. I lived in Turkey and listened to all the propaganda and warmongering and last year Obama gave the Islamic community 10 million dollars to celebrate Ramadan. Now he is picking apart Sukkot, please. I left that horrid religion, and back to my roots, because what people say is absolutely true and his daddy and him have spoken at conferences in turkey too the Muslim people. Snopes is a joke and a like as well as cnn, fox. the only fair news is BBC.

  89. I live in the USA. Unfortunately, this kind of statement from the Obama administration (yes,I read the satire disclaimer) Is all too beliveable. When you see this stuff, you just have to wonder “is this real?Or a joke?” Which is a very sad thing .

  90. The gentiles whether in the OCCUPIED White(sic)House and other countries, do not have the right to tell the Jewish peoples where they can live! Whomever voted for the this Administration and those of other countries who bark like canines against Jews,should be afflicted with ebola and worse! “The curse of a rabbi, shall come to reality'(Talmud Tractate: Makous 11;a) Watch real Judaism every Wednesday 10:00AM & 6:00PM New York Time go to bcat.tv then scroll down to Community media then click on Brooklyn Public Network then click on arrow in channel 2

  91. Hysterical! Clueless. Nice to know that you can see our little “huts” from Heaven! I pray that Hashem sees the love of His People Kal Yisroel doing His Commandments. Might be nice to keep them up through next Sukkot just to poke the clueless a bit. Thank you for the giggle. Phenomenon………… Baaahaaahaaa! Since When does Hashem have to check with Obama for His People to get permission to build?

  93. it’s funny BUT, and here is the BUT,,,, one day a drone will come along and this could actually take place. Give Obama a little more power and you might just have this mess!! Of course it’s just a joke, LOL LOL LOL NOT FUNNY, well OK sort of. 🙂

  94. Dear Jewish Press. I did not see the r3d letters that wws listed further down this post., saying it was satire. There is so much advertising etc on this site that only things in the article I read. When it ended it was ended for me. Especially in red. I think a lot ofmpeople, didnt see it either. If you had posted it as you have now, then it would have been seen. You have a lot of President Obama republicans who love this site. So any bashing on his part will draw them like flies. And I can also see why Israel would be upset. Good joke, but it was taken seriously, sorry..

  95. These stupid people in Washington should first learn what Sukkot is before they open up their months. I guess that Muslim we have in the White House just likes to get bent out of joint for nothing. lol

  96. What is even funnier is that people are still taking it seriously. As many times as people posted..satire..it goes unnoticed. At first even I thought it was an opinion. No one said ,, look at the red letters at the end..hahaha. A good lesson on howmbad things can get started with people who feed off of others comments..there is a lot of power in the media, wouldnt you say ?

  97. Initially the article ran without the notes. After several comments insisting it was satire were ignored and many continued to “unload”, the editor finally added the header/footer satire clarification for readers who didn’t pick up on their own. Perhaps distaste for Obama’s actions has led to impulsive reactions and compromised reading comprehension. And/or maybe people are too inattentive to read. The satire was rather obvious.

  98. This is funny. Perhaps a ‘diplomatic gift” of a calendar would soothe POTUS’s ruffled feathers.

    Cute piece, pretty clearly satirical even without the an notation people. Get a grip! 😉

  99. … ouch … anybody in ‘the nations’ who doesn’t know – in this internet-world of ours – what going on around the world in every self-respecting Jewish family’s life, deserves the extra grey hairs this Jewish ‘audacity’ gives them!

  100. teach oh bummer and his henchmen to read a hebrew calendar. explain that it is the festival of tabernacles. all over the world, these structures are built. of course they are taken down automatically. at the end. no intervention needed .. this article is a comedy.
