Israeli Obama supporters have launched a Hebrew-language blog advocating for Obama. The new blog features translated speeches and campaign messages related to Israel, and is hosted on the popular “Tapuz” website. Tzahi Stein, VP of Marketing and Strategy at Tapuz said, “”This is a very exciting turn of events and we look forward to working closely with Obama’s staff.”
Although Obama or his campaign did not officially put out the blog, they have issued a statement noting their excitement at support for Obama in Israel and around the world. This is not the first time Israelis have shown public support for Obama—in the recent “Yes We Can” promotional video put out by Obama’s campaign, Maya Rubin, an Israel actress and singer, was featured singing “ken anu yecholim.”
Despite virulent accusations against Obama for being anti-Semitic or anti-Israel, recent U.S. polls show that Obama is still very popular among Jewish voters.
