It is called CHUTZPAH in Hebrew: this Hussein Obama thinks he can do what he wants. But he is NO PROPHET, and HE WILL FAIL MISERABLY, G-d willing.
New Outpost Named “Obama Hilltop”

(IsraelNN.com) Jewish youths in Judea and Samaria, refusing to accept Obama’s “no Jews” decree, have built yet another neighborhood outpost – and named it “Obama Hilltop.”
The few against the mighty? With U.S. President Barack Obama having told billions of people across the world that a Palestinian state will happen, and that Jews have few if any rights in Judea and Samaria, several dozen Jewish youths in Israel continue to build more outpost neighborhoods in those very areas.
When Israel’s armed forces come to raze the structures, the youths rebuild them once more.
Ramat Migron, Pnei Shilo
This pattern has repeated itself several times just this week. On Tuesday, youths who had been thrown out of Ramat Migron – outside Migron, north of Jerusalem – set up camp in an abandoned army base near Shilo. Army forces arrived the next day on the scene, named Pnei Shilo, and destroyed the lone wooden hut. The youths say they will return – or rebuild somewhere else.
Shvut Ami, Maoz Esther
In Shvut Ami, just west of Kedumim, young pioneers have rebuilt two structures, which had been destroyed a few days earlier by Border Guard police forces.
In Maoz Esther, outside Kokhav HaShachar in eastern Binyamin (north of Jerusalem), some 250 people gathered to celebrate the re-dedication of a synagogue in memory of Merkaz HaRav terrorist victim Yehonadav Hirschfeld. The synagogue had been destroyed just the day before, as well as the week before, by security forces, and was rebuilt each time.
The hundreds of singing and dancing celebrants were joined by Rabbi Dov Lior, the Chief Rabbi of Kiryat Arba-Hevron, and MK Dr. Michael Ben-Ari (National Union). Rabbi Lior blessed the participants, saying, “Thank G-d, you are healthy in soul and spirit, and are not affected by the weaknesses around us.”
Ben-Ari said, “We can see here yet another healthy expression of the Jewish People’s return to our Land, and we are not planning to leave. We have no other land; the Arabs have 22 countries, and it’s too bad that Obama did not mention that in his speech. Giving them another country means an attempt to destroy the Jewish People in Israel – and we have no intention of being destroyed. The Jewish People are holding on tight to their Land.”
Near Kokhav Yaakov, between Jerusalem and Beit El, a new outpost was formed on Friday morning, tentatively called Givat Obama, or Obama Hilltop. The builders say the name is “in recognition of the president’s actions, which have led to a dramatic increase in the number of outposts being built throughout Judea and Samaria.”
Yet another new outpost was formed on Friday near Kochav HaShachar. The outpost, named Oz Yehonatan, consists, so far, of one wooden building.
THE JERUSALEM POST
Chanting "No, you can't!" and waving signs bearing messages in a similar vein, nearly 200 people held a demonstration outside the US Consulate on the capital's Rehov Agron on Wednesday evening, protesting the growing American pressure to stop construction in West Bank settlements.
Speakers at the event included MK Michael Ben-Ari (National Union) and Esther Pollard, the wife of convicted spy Jonathan Pollard. All brought a similar message - that the American government does not have the right to dictate where Jews may or may not live within the Land of Israel.
"Mr. Obama, we started demonstrating 16 years ago," said Rabbi Shalom Gold, the founder of Kehillat Zichron Ya'acov in Jerusalem's Har Nof neighborhood, alluding to the early days of the Oslo Accords. "You were in your '30s and you probably didn't know the first thing about Eretz Yisrael... but we're part of God's divine plan, we're here and we're staying here!"
"Be a friend of Israel, but even if you won't be, we have the greatest ally in the world," he said, pointing to the heavens.
Esther Pollard followed, telling the crowd that her message to the US president was that "your problem isn't with Prime Minister Netanyahu, nor is it with the People of Israel. Your problem, Mr. President, is with the almighty God of Israel!"
The protest continued for more than two hours, as the demonstrators ebbed and flowed and consular staff across the street came out to watch the goings-on.
The protest was only a part of a wider campaign launched by activists on Wednesday, in which they will try to counter the American stance by portraying Obama as an anti-Semite whose policies would harm the Jewish state.
Over the coming days, activists plan to hang posters throughout the country of Obama wearing a keffiyeh, flanked by the words, "Anti-Semite," and "Jew-hater," written in red in both English and Hebrew. Another poster published by the campaign shows Obama shaking hands with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad against a background of a mushroom cloud from a nuclear explosion.
The Jewish National Front, which is backing the protests, said in a statement: "We decided to launch a campaign against the president of the United States and to say that Barack Hussein Obama is bad for the Jews."
"From the moment that he entered the White House, we have been feeling anti-Semitism and hatred toward Israel," the statement continued. "We have a number of plans, among which are demonstrations in the US and protests in front of the consulate and homes of the ambassadors."
Later Wednesday evening, Peace Now issued a statement harshly criticizing the campaign, saying the anti-Obama posters and demonstrations would cause considerable damage to the friendship between the US and Israel.
"The radical Right is damaging our strategic alliance with the US, and is embarrassing Israel in front of the world," the organization said. "[Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu] must renounce this campaign of the settlers at once, and act decisively against the hilltop youth and those who are breaking the law in the settlements."
