Leading Republican leaders took the podium on friday to criticize President Obama on his treatment of Israel,at the Voters value summit in Washington, one of the biggest religious right conferences of the year, where thousands of Evengelical christians, conservative catholics and Jews gather, speakers at the event included Mike Huckabee, Jim DeMint, Michelle Bachmann, Rick Santorium, Mike Pence , Mitt Romney and Christine O'Donnell. The summit will have a “2012 Presidential Straw Poll,” with the winner to be announced Saturday afternoon.

Rep. Mike Pence Chairman of the House Republican Conference, took a tough stance, accusing Obama of abandoning Israel – Pence said he was “appalled” by Obama’s criticism of controversial building in Jerusalem:
"I Never thought I'd see the day an American administration would denounce Israel for rebuilding Jerusalem"

"Let the World know this if nothing else: America stands with Israel!".
Mitt Romney the frontrunner in the GOP 2012 field according to polls and predictions gave Obama a 'F' grade on foriegn policy:
"The President's foreign policy has not compensated for his failure at home. Under his engagement policy, North Korea has tested nuclear weapons, launched long range missiles, and sunk a South Korean ship. And Iran has funded Yemeni insurgents, armed terrorists, and accelerated its nuclear program. He gave Russians their number one foreign policy objective--abandonment of our Eastern Europe missile defense--and got nothing in return. He insulted Israel at the United Nations and forgot to mention that Hamas has launched thousands of rockets into that country...."
