The Obama administration has bent over backwards to reach out to the Muslim community in America, and throughout the world. Pamela Geller, writing for Israel National News counted the ways in her oped, Obama Unmasked: 40 Czars Later:
•instructed the State Department to create a new appointment, US Special Representative Muslim (Ummah)
• sent his no. 2 woman at the White House, Valerie Jarrett, to speak at the racist hate-fest staged over the Fourth of July weekend by the Islamic Society of North America, an unindicted co-conspirator in a case involving the funding of the Hamas terror group.
•the appointment of Arif Alikhan as Assistant Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security – an appointment that is troubling in many ways.
•invited the propaganda television station of Hamas, Al-Quds TV, to film propaganda here in the United States on the dime of US taxpayer dollars.
•announced that he was “presenting the Medal of Freedom to Mary Robinson, noted anti-Semite.
•instituted the “US Muslim engagement” – a blueprint for appeasement

Not mentioned is the infamous bow to the Saudi king, his appointment of noted anti-semite, Chas Freeman, the pro-Saudi, anti-Israel extremist the National Intelligence Council, (an appointment that was so egregious it was later retracted), his appointment of State Dept. Legal adviser, transnationalist Harold Koh, and his apology tour in the Muslim world.
But there is one appointment Obama has failed to make. The Jerusalem Post reported: “The Obama administration has failed to name an envoy for monitoring and combating anti-Semitism around the world, as mandated by US law, since the previous ambassador was relieved of his duties at the start of the president’s term more than six months ago, officials said Thursday.”
Rafael Medoff, director of the Washington DC-based David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies, explained: “Foot-dragging on the selection sends a message that anti-Semitism is not of great importance to the United States.”
A pattern of tolerance for antisemitism has emerged, and it’s one that many people could have predicted a year and a half ago, and did. This video is from April/08:
Bishop E. W. Jackson, Sr., of Exodus Faith Ministries, sounds the alarm:
“Those who are paying attention and thinking about these issues do not find it unreasonable to consider that President Obama is influenced by a strain of anti-Semitism picked up from the Black community, his leftist friends and colleagues, his Muslim associations and his long period of mentorship under Jeremiah Wright. If this conclusion is accurate, Israel has some dark days ahead. For the first time in her history, she may find the president of the United States siding with her enemies. Those who believe as I do that Israel must be protected had better be ready for the fight. We are. Never again!”
Hillary tried to assure us during the campaign that “Obama Would Be a Good Friend To Israel”, but the evidence so far doesn’t bare this out.
