As far as Israel goes, the Likud have taken things to a very extreme position so when people see Israel, they just go off on another extreme position. You have to remember there are plenty of idiots on the web (off of it too lol)
Huh? Likud is the centrist party in Israel. They are pushing for the two state solution there. There are parties there pushing for the one state solution on both the extreme left and right ironically. Anyway, what does that have to do with the fact that the Iranian government newspaper can not be trusted to provide accurate information on anything. They are a propaganda arm nothing else.
As for the anti-Obama stuff more people in poverty and on food stamps is not something that I would tout as a great achievement for a president. I might even use it to judge how poor of a job a particular president is doing. That alongside the decline in small business start ups are a big part of why progressive political philosophy and legislation in general is so bad for the country. As the great Ronald Reagan once said, "welfare's purpose should be to eliminate, as far as possible, the need for its own existence".
