Senator Jeff Bingaman‘s support group in New Mexico used to be called (and may still be) “A Lot of Folks for Jeff Bingaman.” I always liked how unpretentious the name of his PAC was.
Well. . .I have stumbled across “A Lot of Saudis and Israelis for Barack Obama.” They aren’t a single group — but it’s clear Obama is popular across the Middle East.
I haven’t received an email video of Israelis for McCain, though I know there are some — and I haven’t received graphics that are pro-McCain and anti-Obama from Saudi Arabia. If I do, I’ll consider posting them.
But I have to share the video above — which is powerful and gripping — of many in Israel who support Barack Obama. Beware, it triggers tears in some.
And because I don’t believe in false trade-offs between the interests of Israel and its Arab neighbors, I will also post these graphics that were done by a blogger in Saudi Arabia, Bandar Raffah.

Update: I just learned that CNN Arabic covered the Obama support initiative in Saudi Arabia.
