Israeli paper publishes Obama Western Wall prayer
25-Jul-2008 (6 comments)

A written prayer that Barack Obama left this week in the cracks of the Western Wall, Judaism's holiest site, asks God to guide him and guard his family, an Israeli newspaper reported today. "Lord -- Protect my family and me," reads the note published in the Maariv daily. "Forgive me my sins, and help me guard against pride and despair. Give me the wisdom to do what is right and just. And make me an instrument of your will."

Press is so much better than the Israeli press. What a bunch of lefty/Islamic Hassods. Funny how all the IslamoNazis and their sympathizers gather at any diversionary story.

My Middle name may be is Hossein but to get the Jewish votes when I visit Israel I would put a skull cap on and when I go to western wall I place a prayer in the crack of the western wall.Shalom

It showed what everyone is made of!

Obama's prayer was beautiful, and those people's action despicable.
