A random collection of thoughts, comments and photos from Ben Simon.
Mickeleh summarized this video best:
Video: Israelis for Obama. A little Schmalzy, but 100% kosher
A little shmalzy? I'd probably up that to a lot - but still, it's well done.
Sorry Ben. I loved the video until they had Naomi Chazan from the Meretz party telling me what to do. I disagree with basically all her politics, and if they wanted staunch supporters of Israel to see this film, then they should have left her out. Frankly, her telling me something is Chutzpah is like listening to O'Reilly (for the record, they are completely on the opposite political spectrum) telling me I'm stupid for not understanding how amazing Palin is. I can forgive the fact that it basically highlights members from the left of Israel's parties, which to be honest I do Identify with some (Haaretz is my internet home page), but I don't think it targets the appropriate crowd. I believe they need to target us US Jews who lean to the right of Israeli Politics, at least as I see it, and in that case, I believe it misses the badly. Although, it was really a nice video, and it did make me smile, so it can't be too bad. Am Yisrael Chi
