"I'm very afraid. I don't know what to do," says G, a Filipina worker, as she runs her fingers through her five-year-old son's hair. Her husband was deported from Israel a year ago. Now she and her two children - aged five and one - face imminent expulsion to the Philippines. G - who is so frightened of Israeli police that she asked not to be named or photographed - says she cannot bring herself to break the news to her son, who was born in Israel, attends kindergarten with Jewish children, and speaks fluent Hebrew.

Expressing his support for the controversial loyalty oath bill - legislation that will require non-Jews to pledge allegiance to Israel "as a Jewish and democratic state" - Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, remarked: "Zionism established an exemplary national state, a state that balances between the national needs of our people and the individual rights of every citizen in the country."

As the US mid-term elections draw tantalisingly closer the battle lines have been drawn. At the centre of them all is the Palestine issue. This is the message from an article published by the Jerusalem Post titled The Jewish problem with Obama which first appeared as a five-part series in the Huffington Post. The article's central thesis is that President Barak Obama nurtures an innate hostility toward Israel and "it is impossible to be anti-Israel and not be anti-Jewish".

A significant number of American Jews, the article purports, are now ruing the day they supported Obama. The authors, Edward Klein and Richard Chesnoff, claim that recent polls of American Jewish communities show a drastic hemorrhaging of support compared to 2008, when 78% of Jewish voters voted for Obama.

The Obama administration's attempts at seducing Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, are getting embarrassing. Netanyahu has made it very clear he is not interested.

According to Ha'aretz, the latest (and most cringe-worthy) moment in the saga came this week when Dennis Ross, the president's top adviser on Israel-Palestinian issues, convinced Obama that Israel would only agree to an extension of the settlements freeze if Obama would "come off as friendlier" to Bibi.
