For Friday night's Obama White House seder, we hear there's talk of an alternate version of the traditional four questions:

Introductory Question
Mr. President, why is this administration different from all other administrations?

First Question
Why is it that all other administrations acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, but this administration refuses to say Jerusalem is even located in Israel?

Second Question
Why is it that all other administrations try to be friendly to the democratically elected prime minister of Israel, but this administration is bitter towards him?

Third Question
Why is it that all other administrations try not to pick fights with Israel even once, but this administration picks fights with Israel more than twice?

Fourth Question
Why is it that in other administrations the president visits both Muslim and Jewish states, but this administration visits only Muslim states?
