Obama visits Western Wall

It’s Thursday morning in Jerusalem. Do you know where your Democratic U.S. presidential candidate is?

As evidenced by the photo here, Barack Obama was at the Western Wall, paying the obligatory visit to the remnant of the Second Temple. No trip to Israel would be complete without a visit to the wall, and no trip to the wall would be complete without a quiet prayer being interrupted by the cacophony of some protester, this one shouting, “Obama, Jerusalem is not for sale! Obama, Jerusalem is not for sale!”

Seriously, he’s got to be wondering what it takes to catch a break. (Probably not this.)
