Which Bethlehem Should Be Obama's Priority?

A New York Times writer names Bethlehem, Pa., in his column about the need for President Obama to focus on domestic problems rather than elusive Middle East peace.


Bethlehem, Pa., is noted in a snappy line by New York Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman writing about whether a re-elected President Obama will seek revenge on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu for supporting Gov. Mitt Romney.

Friedman wrote, in part,

"Obama has his marching orders from the American people: Focus on Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, not on Bethlehem, Palestine, and focus on getting us out of quagmires [Afghanistan] not into them [Syria]. No, my Israeli friends, it’s much worse than you think: You’re home alone."

Take a look at Friedman's column and tell us what you think in the comment section below.

Leave Bethlehem, PA alone. We can do fine without Government interference.
