While Jewish New Yorkers are up in arms about a supposedly anti-Semitic innuendo by Ted Cruz, Caroline Glick allows us to look at the larger perspective. That would be, as I suggested in my last post, the actions of a man that Jewish liberals happily helped put in the White House.
Glick writes about one day in the anti-Semitism of Barack Obama on Facebook:
Wow. In one day President Obama screwed Israel, American Jewry and world Jewry.
1. He screwed Israel by implementing the Iran deal which gives our worst enemy $150 billion and nuclear weapons.
2. He screwed American Jewry by abandoning FBI officer Robert Levinson in Iran, sealing his death warrant and in so doing, made clear that Jews are second class citizens and not worthy of the same protection as all other Americans.
3. He reportedly agreed to pressure Argentina to stop prosecuting Iran for murdering 85 Jews at the AMIA Jewish center bombing in Buenos Aires in 1994.
This, on top of the fact that in his SOTU, he spoke at length about "Islamophobia" and hate crimes against Muslims, and said not one word about anti-Semitic hate crimes. He ignored anti-Jewish assaults despite the fact that Jews in the US are at least twice as likely to be attacked in a hate crime as Muslims are. Of course this isn't surprising from the guy who called the Jews murdered at the kosher supermarket in Paris, "a bunch of guys at a deli."
