There may or may not be a shred of truth in this, take it as you will. I'm not against Obama, just thought this was somewhat relevant to the Nexus.
Obama visted the western wall of Jerusalem earlier this week. Per tradition he left a small prayer tucked in a note inside a crack in the wall. Apparently it's not 'kosher' to take peoples notes and publish them yet the Israeli news paper, the Maariv Daily
, did just that.
"Lord—Protect my family and me," reads the note published in the Maariv daily. "Forgive me my sins, and help me guard against pride and despair. Give me the wisdom to do what is right and just. And make me an instrument of your will."
I'm totally OK with someone praying, his business not mine. I find the "instrument of your will" bit a little concerning though. Our current president claims to have exercised the will of god when he attacked Iraq...we all know how well that's going.
