That statement, "Israel is not America's 51st state," was a theme from right wing Israelis demonstrating against Obama's new Middle East policy. That policy will no longer honor Islamophobia and puts a stop to stereotypes about Islamic and Arabic people held by Americans and promoted by several extremist proIsrael groups.
This report from Ynet indicates that there is a back swell in Israel against Obama's demand that Israel freeze settlements which is growing from right wing extremist Zionist groups, who are attempting to exploit Islamophobia.
200 right-wing activists demonstrate outside American Consulate in Jerusalem in protest of growing pressure to halt settlement construction...
Over the past few days Jewish National Front activists have met with the far-right party's representatives in the US to decide on a plan of action, and eventually decided to hold a series of protests outside the White House and the US Consulate in Jerusalem.
....extremists to circulate doctored photos of US president in Arab headdress and shaking Ahmadinejad's hand.
Doctored photos of US President Barack Obama (above) wearing a kaffiyah (traditional Arab headdress) with a caption reading "Jew-hating anti-Semite" will be circulated in the coming days by Israeli right-wing activists in protest of the growing US pressure on Israel to halt settlement activity, even that which is attributed to "natural growth."
The activists, Ynet has learned, plan to circulate another doctored photo showing Obama shaking hands with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad against the backdrop of a nuclear explosion. The heading reads "Yes, We Can."
It was reported that the photos may also be distributed in the US. The planned White House demonstrations have not yet been reported.
