Obama will be a great friend and supporter of Israel.

By tapping Rahm Emanuel, a fierce partisan of Israel who volunteered in northern Israel during the first Gulf War, it is fair to say that President -elect Obama will be a great friend and supporter of Israel.
Rahm's father Benjamin Emanuel served in the Irgun to advance the goal of creating a Zionist state.
This week, the elder Emanuel has assuaged doubts about his son's pedigree. "Obviously, he will influence the president to be pro-Israel," he told the Israel daily Maariv, "Why wouldn't he be? What is he, an Arab?"
This choice makes the entire "Does Obama support Israel?" conversation seem a bit ridiculous (Though the vast majority of Jewish voters seemed to have figured that out by the election). Rahm served in the Israeli Army, and he is deeply and emotionally committed to Israel and its safety.
He has already been called, by some Israelis, "Our man in the White House."
A further message is widely rumored to be forthcoming -- the naming as "Special Envoy for Middle East Peace" of Dennis Ross, the Israel advocate who, throughout the 12 years of the Bush administration, fought for Israel.
He currently heads the AIPAC/ Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
