One Israeli Jew is Too Many? Really, Obama?
Obama’s anti-Semitic, anti-Israel hatred is manifesting itself ever-so-blatantly…
Remember, the Obama regime’s excuses are to be disbelieved because this regime has zero credibility, zero integrity and is infamous for its hatred and discrimination against Israel, Israels and Jews, whilst enouraging unlimited intrusion and staying by illegal aliens from Mexico, including drug gangsters infamous for murder and even beheading, including inside America. Obama’s regime also has a fast-track regime in place for Muslim immigration en masse like never before. It is clear what its agenda really is.
Among younger Israelis, the visa issue has put a damper on plans for a post-army trip to America, a common rite of passage after completing three or more years of compulsory military service. For this demographic, the American concern appears to be less a matter of security and rather a fear that they will abuse their tourist visas to work illegally and peddle products at malls.
Yoav Rosenbaum, 23, said he had no such intention. He and three friends just wanted to go on a 10-day trip to the New York area to see a comedy festival. But even though he holds down a hi-tech job, rents an apartment in Tel Aviv and lived in the U.S for the three years when he was younger, he was immediately rejected at the American embassy.
“I brought documents, showed my return flight and the tickets to the festival, paid the fee and the guy just looked at me and said ‘it’s not going to happen,'” he recalled, saying the official told him he didn’t have enough ties to Israel to be trusted to return. “I wasn’t that shocked because I knew that they give a hard time to people of my age group.”
It hasn’t stopped dozens of others from lining up outside the American embassy in Tel Aviv to seek visas on a daily basis.
For the Israeli government, the larger issue is membership in the Visa Waiver Program.
As one of America’s closest allies, Israel wonders why countries like Slovakia, Iceland and Latvia qualify while they are left out.
