Jewish leaders “are expressing concern about what was said [in Obama’s Cairo speech],” Hoenlein says. “I’ve heard it from some of his strongest supporters. It’s expected from his detractors. Even people close to him have said to us that there were parts of the speech that bothered them.”
Obama’s speech to a Muslim audience in Cairo in early June was his second effort early in his administration to re-define America’s posture toward the Arab world. In April, Obama traveled to Ankara, Turkey, to offer a similar outreach to the Muslim world.
But many in the Jewish community, including some of Obama’s most ardent supporters, are troubled by his comments in the Middle East, especially his remarks to his Cairo audience. Others are concerned that, facing a multitude of problems on the domestic front, Obama has traveled twice to the Middle East without visiting Israel, America’s stalwart ally in the region for more than a half-century.
“There’s a lot of questioning going on about what he really believes and what does he really stand for,” Hoenlein says of Obama’s outreach.
Jewish folks certainly do have strong reason to be worried about Obama. No doubt about it. The pattern of utterances and behaviors by Obama and his Regime make this starkly obvious.
Lots of folks are concerned about Obama. Perhaps two groups aren't: Neocommunists and Islamofascists, because Obama has kowtowed to both groups.

“When you tell the world that what is happening in Gaza, that the Israelis are doing something identical to what the Germans did to them in eliminating 6 million of them, then you're desensitizing everybody to the Holocaust and you are ramping up hatred for Israel, you are ramping up hatred for Jewish people. It is coming from the Obama administration.”
“Obama runs in a very sick circle,” Limbaugh said. “He listened to [the Rev.] Jeremiah Wright's anti-Jew, anti-American sermons for 20 years.”
“This friend of his, this [Rashid] Khalidi guy, another one, radical Palestinian, very anti-Semitic, now a professor at Columbia. He is an Obama buddy.”
“You see, President Obama is using race as he did in his selection of his first Supreme Court nominee,” Limbaugh said, continuing, “He is dividing this nation in every way possible. That is the tactic of an authoritarian. It is the tactic of the statist. He is opening dialogue with Iran. Iran is run by Jew-hating nut jobs who deny the Holocaust, yet they insist on unleashing another one. While denying the Holocaust, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to whom Barack Obama wants to speak without preconditions, is promising another Holocaust.”
