OK, the election is over. A majority of American Jews, exhibiting battered wife syndrome, gave Obama their votes. In appreciation for the support of so many Jews, Obama nominated the most ant-Israel cabinet ever. The New York Post now reports:
Israel will award President Barack Obama the country's Presidential Medal of Distinction during his upcoming visit.
Israeli President Shimon Peres' office said Monday that Obama will be recognized for his "unique and significant contribution to strengthening the State of Israel and the security of its citizens."
Obama is scheduled to visit Israel in March - his first as president.
I suppose that compared with the harm Peres did to Israel with the Oslo Accords, this is not a big deal.
