The Middle Name

What is the source of the president's problems with supporters of Israel? Must be the prejudice of American Jews!

"...I knew Barack Obama for many years as my state senator-when he used to attend events in the Palestinian community in Chicago all the time. I remember personally introducing him onstage in 1999, when we had a major community fundraiser for the community center in Deheisha refugee camp in the occupied West Bank. And that's just one example of how Barack Obama used to be very comfortable speaking up for and being associated with Palestinian rights and opposing the Israeli occupation."
Yup... must be the middle name, not suspicion based on the president's historical policy leanings.
