Mr. President, You are NO Friend of Israel

Mr. President, You are NO Friend of Israel
By Ken Blackwell and Bob Morrison , CP Op-Ed Contributors

President Obama, you recently gave an interview to Israeli television claiming you are “the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office.” That’s so far from the truth even a GPS cannot find it.

First, there was George Washington. His address to the Hebrew Congregation at Newport in 1790 was the first time in history any national leader spoke to the Jews as fully equal fellow citizens. Then, there was Thomas Jefferson, who thought the Great Seal of the United States should have been the Children of Israel and their Exodus from Egyptian bondage. President Lincoln was so beloved by American Jews that they called him “Rabbi Abraham.”

Then there was FDR. President Roosevelt met the first King of Saudi Arabia. He didn’t bow to him, Sir, as you did to that desert despot’s son. But President Franklin D. Roosevelt insisted on holding Divine Services on board his warship, the USS Quincy, before his Sunday meeting with the Saudi king. Roosevelt got nowhere pleading with King Adbul Azziz for a homeland for the Jews. But at least he maintained his dignity and our national honor. . .
