In a clear case of leftist projection, Barack Obama blamed President Trump for the rise of anti-Semitism in the U.S. Wowser! If I can ironically borrow an old Hebrew word, Obama has got some "chutzpah" for that declaration.
Of course, it's easy for Obama to make absurd claims, for he knows better than anyone that the press will never push back, or even question the lunacy of any of his assertions.
Now Obama wasn't stupid enough to come out and say that Trump is an anti-Semite – just that the rise in anti-Semitism was Trump's fault.
"When I gave that speech, it was clear that anti-Semitism was on the rise around the world," Obama wrote. "People's anger over everything from immigration to inequality was boiling over – and many of them were looking for someone else to blame. And for four years, we had a president in the White House who fanned those flames."
I'm not sure how he arrived at that conclusion. Sounds like 6 degrees from Kevin Bacon. So in Obama's head, President Trump fanned the flames of hatred of the Jews, which therefore assumes he must be a closet anti-Semite.
However, like some sort of double-agent, Trump sure did hide it well.
In fact he hides his anti-Semitism so well, that many, me included, would say Trump is the greatest friend and ally to Israel the world has ever known.
Now I'm not a crack investigator, nor have an army of researchers at my behest like former President Obama most likely has, but it took me all of about 30 seconds to find a list of Jew-hater Trump's Israel accomplishments.
Pam Geller was kind enough to compile a list of all President Trump did on behalf of the Jewish state, or little Satan, as the Islamists know it.
Some of those actions were much hailed by the reasonable thinking, and much maligned by the radical left and Islamists. Others were done without much fanfare, but still important.
Trump withdrew from the ridiculous Iran deal and designated the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist group. He recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and opened the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem. This was suppose to cause the entire Middle East to melt down, but strangely, it hasn't as of yet.
Instead, with Trump's support, something else happened. For the first time in history, Israel and some Islamic nations struck peace and cooperation accords, including the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Sudan, Islamic Kosovo and of course Bahrain.
Trump helped broker the "Open the Skies" accord, seeing, for the first time, flights to Israel legally and peacefully breaching Saudi airspace, as well as flights from Israel to Sudan.
Domestically, the anti-Semite in disguise, Trump, closed the PLO Mission in Washington and signed the first-ever executive order to fight anti-Semitism on U.S. campuses. But that's just what an anti-Semite would do.
That bastard Trump. If he had only treated Israel the way Obama did, everything would be great for Jews. If Trump would've treated Bibi Netanyahu with the disdain Obama did, anti-Semitism would not be an issue. Makes perfect sense, does it not?
Perhaps if Trump would have cozied up to the Islamists, things would be better. You know, like Barack Obama did – because that always goes remarkably well for the Jews.
Here are just a few of the kind words expressed by Obama for Muslims and Islam, who until Trump were almost entirely sworn enemies of Israel and the Jews:
"Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance."
Say that aloud with a straight face. Bet you can't.
"The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer."
"These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam's role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings."
"Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace."
And my favorite:
"The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam."
Now I'm searching my memory to recall if he ever said such a thing about the God of Abraham, or Moses, or Jesus, or John the Baptist, etc., but I'm thinking Obama never did.
So who was it that "fanned the flames" of hatred and anti-Semitism?
