Obama Wants to Preach to Young Israelis during Visit

By: JTA

President Barack Obama hopes to address young Israelis on his visit to Israel, a senior administration official said.

“The president’s speech is an opportunity for him to speak directly with the Israeli people, in particular to young people, about the broad nature of the U.S.-Israeli relationship,” the official told JTA ahead of a White House briefing Thursday with Jewish community leaders about the trip scheduled for later this month.

The president’s agenda has not been revealed, but reports last week indicated he favors speaking at Tel Aviv University. The White House did not comment on Wednesday’s report that he might speak to students at the Jerusalem Convention Center.

President Obama’s visit to Jerusalem during the 2008 presidential campaign was carefully staged to prevent any negative questions.

If he addresses an audience youth that is screened for a favorable reception, he will be not be speaking to the consensus. Most polls show an increasing rightward move by youth.

    The nuts are falling from the trees. I think one landed on my head…the tree, not the nut…what exactly does Obama hope to accomplish by this dog and pony show? He won't be fooling anyone in Israel, or the U.S., the islamists don't care. Perhaps he has a magical mirror, or a pie to stick his thumb into. Also where does this new wave of self-advertizing come from? It seems that 75% or more of the articles I read have some self promotional shpiel that has nothing to do with the question at hand…oh there is the answer to my question, it is merely mor self promotion from the president.

  5. Gil Gilman says:

    I should have said, self-promotion by commentors.

  6. Why doesn't he Obama just stay home, He never was interested in visiting Israel before? why now?

  7. Wendell Schloneger says:

    Make sure he is interrogated at the airport before allowed to enter to make sure his birth certificate and ss are valid. This will be good opportunity to get the truth.
