Israeli Democrats Back Clinton

Barak Obama swept the global primary held by Democrats abroad. Gloabally Obama beat Clinton 66% to 33%. He took Japan with 79% of the vote; Indonesia with 76%

The only countries that Hillary won where the Philippines, the Dominican Republic, and (you guessed it) Israel. So, not only are Israelis in general out of sync with the American mood (Israel is the only country in the world where President Bush is more popular than he is in America itself.) Israeli Democrats seem to be out of touch with the mood of other Democrats, especially ex-pat Democrats.

I have no idea why or what it means (and I am open to hearing any reasonable explanation.) Maybe those rumours about Obama being a secret Muslim got some traction in Israel.
