"As president of the United States of America, (Obama) stood with Israel in times of crisis."

"During his time as president, he has made a unique contribution to the security of the State of Israel, both through further strengthening the strategic cooperation between the countries and through the joint development of technology to defend against rockets and terrorism."

Saying so turns truth on its head. Neither leader would recognize it if it bit them on their rumps.

The award replicates France's Legion of Honor, the Order of Canada, and America's Medal of Freedom.

<blockquote>In July 1945, Harry Truman authorized awarding it "to any person....who, or on after December 7, 1941, has performed a meritorious act or service which has aided the United States in the prosecution of a war against an enemy or enemies and for which an award of another United States medal or decoration is considered inappropriate."

In February 1963, Jack Kennedy ordered it replaced by the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

It's awarded "for especially meritorious contributions to (1) the security or national interests of the United States, or (2) world peace, or (3) cultural or other significant public or private endeavors."</blockquote>
