Did the Obama campaign 'play' Judaism's most holy spot
Maariv, the Israeli newspaper that was criticized for publishing the note Obama left in the Western Wall (the "Wailing Wall"), now claims the note was leaked to it by the Obama campaign.
a Maariv spokesperson says that publication of the note was pre-approved for international publication by the Obama campaign, leading to the conclusion that the "private" prayer was intentionally leaked for public consumption.
"Lord - Protect my family and me," reads the note."Forgive me my sins, and help me guard against pride and despair.Give me the wisdom to do what is right and just.And make me an instrument of your will."
