Somebody actually went and dug out Obama’s written prayer note that he inserted (as per the custom) in the Wailing Wall… then had it published in a local Israeli newspaper. As per a AP report of a while back, notes placed there are not to be read by human eyes! They are prayers holding the name of God, and as per longstanding Jewish religious custom are not to be disposed of lightly. They are certainly not to be made into news.
I may have my differences with the junior Senator from Illinois, but he is owed an immediate and sincere apology for this violation of his privacy from both the man who stole his prayer and the newspaper that published it.
