Obama "Crosses Out" Israel in Insult to Jewish State

This is nasty and petty. And it's an extreme position that insists Jews have no right to be in Israel at all.
The White House, in a press release, originally sent out a press release attributing Obama’s remarks as taking place in “Jerusalem, Israel.”
Shortly after that statement was sent, the White House reissued the statement with “Israel” crossed out as the location.
So apparently Obama gave a speech from some country named "Jerusalem".
Unlike some parts of the city, we are not talking about a place that was under Muslim occupation until the Six Day War. So that excuse doesn't even hold up. Denying that Mount Herzl is in Jerusalem is a denial that the Jews have any right to be in Jerusalem, alive or dead.
It's a hateful, but yet a far honest message, than Obama's overwrought speech.
