Obama’s latest campaign prop: Jerusalem’s Western Wall; Update: Protests/heckling mar photo-op

Update: 12:24am. Obama is heckled at the Western Wall. Photo-op ruined. But will the slavering American media report it? The Times of London has the story: “The US presidential nominee was heckled as he visited the Western Wall in the early hours of Thursday morning, bowing his head in prayer and observing traditional custom by placing a folded piece of paper into the crevice of the wall. Orthodox men interrupted their morning prayers to catch a glimpse of the Illinois senator, reaching out to shake his hand as he passed them by. But not all were taken by the Democrat. One yelled out: ‘Obama, Jerusalem is not for sale!’ before Mr Obama was whisked away to his waiting plane.”


John McCain exploited the imagery of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico earlier this month. That crass move was nothing compared to Barack Obama’s religious prop. He’s visiting Jerusalem’s Western Wall late tonight with the slavering Obamedia in tow. Will he have his campaign staff leave a grafitti Obama ’08 logo on the hallowed site?

Might as well. Looks like it’s working with some people:

Chairman of Republicans Abroad in Israel, Kory Bardash, thinks Senator Obama is doing a good job on the tour.

“I think if I was one of Barack Obama’s operators I would tell them to do the exact same thing,” he said.

“Take a picture by the Western Wall, go to Sderot and show that you identify with the citizens that have been living under a barrage of rockets for the last eight years, and hopefully those images, in lieu of a real record, will play well in the Jewish communities and the pro-Israel community in the US.”


Jim Hoft wonders what Obama’s position on Jerusalem will be tomorrow.

Meanwhile, IBD looks at the Euro mosh pit that awaits The One.
