Where do I get my “Obama Hearts Bibi” T-shirt? The president landed in Israel Wednesday and announced that the “United States is proud to stand with you as your strongest ally and greatest friend.” In his first trip to the nation as president, Obama will first head to Israel’s Iron Dome missile system in Tel Aviv (hint for Iran: your nuke progress worries everyone). The president will later go to Jerusalem to meet with Israel’s president and prime minister. Interestingly, the Israeli Embassy to the U.S. published a bizarre video promoting Obama’s trip, using the Golden Girls theme as the soundtrack.
