With the US presidential election neck-and-neck, President Barack Obama’s campaign has gone to the far reaches of Sderot to get people to articulate their support for the president.

“Thank you, Mr. Obama, about everything,” Pinchas Amar, identified as a Sderot resident, said in English in a heavy Israeli accent with unique Israeli syntax in a video entitled What do Israelis think of Obama?.

The three minute video was uploaded Wednesday onto YouTube by the National Jewish Democratic Council.

It opens with a bossa nova instrumental and some shots of the Iron Dome battery in the South. It then moves to the White House where on July 27 Obama signed an order allocating an additional $70 million for the Iron Dome.
