When you read about the Iron Dome system protecting Tel Aviv from rockets from Gaza, you should know that while the Israelis initially developed the system, it has been thanks to funds requested by President Obama -- whom the right accuses of not favoring Israel --- on top of the $3 billion a year we already give Israel -- that has accelerated the deevlopment and deployment and improvement of this system.

During the campaign, all we heard from the right-wing fringe was how Obama was not helping Israel, and was the worst POTUS ever in that regard. No more factual or correct than any of their other memes. The truth was very different, even though the right-wing Prime Minister of Israel tried to exploit it to his personal political benefit.

I am proud that the US helped the Isaelis int his additional effort, while continuing the annual support program put in place by President Bush.

Truth trumps the Republicans again.
