Israelis4Obama - was fraud involved?

Hotair quotes Jerusalem Post, who interviewed some of the high ranking Israeli security personnel and high ranking politicians who were seen on the Israelis4Obama video. It seems the only way the Obama campaign can find Israelis to praise Obama - is to trick them and put their words out of context. I think it's worth noting that at least one of them came out and said he would never let his voice be used as a pawn in the election campaign. He does not wish to interfere with the election in the US, just like he does not wish for people from the US to meddle in Israel's.

“It’s not only misleading, it was an interview about what the next president was going to have to deal with,” former deputy chief of staff Maj.-Gen. (res.) Uzi Dayan told The Jerusalem Post. “And to know that they used this interview and took five second, and put me in a list of people praising Barack Obama…

“It wasn’t about the campaign, it was about the political and security issues of the Middle East that the next president should be involved in,” he continued. “Nothing was said about Obama or [Republican presidential candidate John] McCain.”

“I don’t want other people to interfere in my elections, and I must not interfere with the elections in the United States,” he said, adding that to do so would be neither “ethical nor smart.” …

Former Mossad chief Ephraim Halevy, who appeared in the video praising the Democratic candidate, also said that he was misled.

“I was interviewed for a documentary dealing with what issues the new American president must deal with regarding the Middle East,” Halevy told the Post. “I was asked about the candidates, and was complimentary to both.”
