Obama's Trip Should Correct Anti-Israel LiesFebruary 21, 2013 @ 12:15 pm (Updated: 12:17 pm - 2/21/13 )
Actually, Israel is one of the safer nations on earth - with an overall murder rate much less than half that of the USA as a whole, and one ninth that of Obama's hometown of Chicago. With a population of nearly 8 million, Israel has experienced less than 200 annual murders since 2004-including terrorist incidents. In fact, the only spikes in violence came after concessions to Arab and international pressure - like the ill-fated Oslo Accords and withdrawals from Gaza and Southern Lebanon.
