Frustrated Israelis Liken Obama to Hard-Hearted Biblical Tyrant

Israelis frustrated with President Barack Obama have begun comparing him to the tyrannical Egyptian Pharaoh depicted in the biblical Book of Exodus.

In a new song called “Pharaoh Obama” released this week, Israeli recording artist Amir Benayoun sings: “King of the world, stupid president, the people of Israel you’ll never be able to erase.”

“The new Pharaoh, a Muslim version, who wants to wipe out my people with all his might,” Benayoun sings.

The song warns that appeasing Iran by compromising over its nuclear program will backfire: “It will all come back at you. Right into your face. Your friends the Iranians will be the first to surprise you.”

The chorus goes:

Pharaoh Obama
Pharaoh Obama
The same really bad style but with a suit
Pharaoh Obama
Pharaoh Obama
The same style but with no wrapping


It’s not only Benayoun — a prominent and controversial activist for Israel’s far right-wing — who has compared Obama to the hard-hearted Pharaoh who ordered the killing of all first-born Jewish males and even after facing plague after plague would not soften his stance to free his Jewish slaves; the theme has been shared by Israelis on social media and in the comment sections of widely read news sites.

Here are some examples:

• A comment on the NRG news site: “Obama=Pharaoh. We survived Pharaoh. We’ll survive Obama.”

• A comment on the Facebook page of the right-leaning Ma’ariv newspaper: “Interesting that end of days prophesies will come true in the end thanks to Pharaoh Hussein Obama.”

• On Walla, a popular Israeli website, a commenter wrote: “Obama is the Pharaoh of modern times. May his name be obliterated forever.”

That commenter used the phrase “Ymach Shemo” — may his name be obliterated forever — a curse often placed after the names of historical figures who have been enemies of the Jews, such as Hitler. More
