Barack Obama's Rainbow Tour, so far, has been an incredible success… with a few bumps here and there.
For example, before departing from Israel — a country so holy that all of its citizens are constantly on the precipice of being carried away by God — Obama stopped at the Western Wall to look solemn for cameras, pretend to pray and leave a personal note to God in a crack of the wall. (Unfortunately, I don't think anyone told Obama that God only picks up on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so his missive will have to wait.)
While he was there for the hallowed photo op, he attracted a healthy-sized crowd of mostly supporters, with one notable exception…
[O]ne man at the Wall began screaming: "Obama, Jerusalem is our land! Obama, Jerusalem is not for sale!"
He kept yelling this for Obama's entire 10 minutes at the Wall, refusing to stop despite repeated entreaties to do so from the crowd… The heckler, not an Obama fan, continued yelling.
Well, that's jumping to some conclusions. We don't know for a fact that the heckler wasn't a fan. He could have been trying to sell Obama on a really good deal on a Syria, but with Israeli parts. It's a very good deal, you won't find it anywhere else in the region.
