Obama Congratulates Israel on 62nd Anniversary - Just Kidding

A search for "Obama congratulates Israel on 62nd anniversary" pops up numerous results, but for 2009, not remember, back when Obama was stilll carrying on the presidential charade.

Update 7:50 p.m. EDT
Reader "Gee" has just sent a link to a Jerusalem Post announce that Obama has, indeed, congratulated Israel on their 62nd anniversary. Thank you, Gee!

"That posting at The Jerusalem Post was listed as "Breaking News" and the White House release of Obama's "congratulations" was received on April 20th -  the bloody day AFTER Israel's Independence Day.  In other words, Hillary Clinton was able to get her message to the Israelis on the day of their Independence, but our Nation's Leader was not.  I'm not sure what is worse - for a President NOT to send a message or to purposely send it late, in the middle of the night of the day after."  ~ Holger

Excuse Me. Where is Obama's Congratulations Message to Israel on its 62nd Anniversary of Independence?

Unless I have missed it today, I have not seen one mention anywhere that Barack Hussein Obama formally congratulated Israel on its 62nd anniversary (if I did miss it, someone please let me know in comments). I see that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton extended a message to Israel but nothing from Obama. NOTHING from Obama.

Here's what Clinton said, from the report at Haaretz:
"The United States will continue to stand with you, sharing your risks and helping shoulder your burdens, as we face the future together," the U.S. secretary of State added. Clinton also stressed what she called her "deep personal commitment to Israel," one she claimed to have shared with U.S. President Barack Obama, adding that Washington would "not waver in protecting Israel's security and promoting Israel's future." "That is why pursuing peace and recognized borders for Israel is one of our top priorities," Clinton said, adding that she believed it was "possible - indeed necessary - to achieve a comprehensive peace in the Middle East that provides Israelis, Palestinians, and all the people of the region security, prosperity, and the opportunity to live up to their full God-given potential."
Now, you will see in the quote above, I bolded the words "recognized borders" that Clinton used in her message ...get that zinger to the Israelis? Not only doesn't the President of the United States of America NOT extend a personal congratulations to Israel on this day but his 3rd string puppet, Hillary Clinton, takes this celebratory occassion to reinforce the fact that she and Obama want Israel confined to a tight little box of land that she and her muslim appeasing President approve of. Disgusting.

By the way, I want to mention the following headlines from Obama's Presidency so far:

1. Obama congratulates Iran on New Year

2. The President's Message to the Iranian People

3. Obama Sends Message To Muslims From Cairo

4. Obama Sends Out Message to Muslims for Ramadan

Isn't that interesting. Barack Hussein Obama hasn't missed any opportunities to send congratulations and messages off to the Muslim world since he became President, but on the day that Israel celebrates an Independence Day that is probably the most dramatic in human history, he's got a sock in his mouth.

What a disgusting display by the President of the United States of America.
