I don't want to get into politics, because I didn't start a blog to express my political outlook on things. However, this isn't exclusive to politics, it concerns B.O.'s visit to the kotel. His compaign apparently put up political posters at the entrance to the kotel.
This REALLLY bothers me. Its one thing to go and visit the Kotel and pretend to give a crap about a religion, its another to go and make it an official compaign. I feel theres a certain church/state separation that politicians should respect when they visit holy sites.
Putting a kippa on, fine.
Putting a letter into the wall? fine.
Putting up posters in a super holy site? A bit intrusive.
And I'm not saying this exclusively about B.O., but about ALL politicians.
KEEP THE CAMPAIGNING SUBTLE AT HOLY SITES.
