Obama’s reaction to being called anti-Semitic would be funny if it weren’t so pathetic

Barack Obama, arguably the most anti-Israel president in history, says he’s personally hurt by the accusations of anti-Semitism that have been leveled at him since he signed the nuclear deal with Iran (read: Israel’s death certificate if the Jewish state fails to act preemptively before Iran acquires nuclear weapons).

Not only is the man who delusionally claimed recently to be the nation’s “first Jewish president” hurt. He also told the Jewish publication “Forward” that “there’s not a smidgen(!) of evidence” to back up the charge that he is anti-Semitic “other than the fact that there have been times where I’ve disagreed with a particular Israeli government’s position on a particular issue.”

Like when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to a joint session of Congress in March about the palpable dangers of negotiating with the Iranian regime, which denies the Holocaust and funds terrorist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah. Not only did Obama not attend the speech in person. He didn’t even bother to read it but merely skimmed it to get a general sense of the prime minister’s arguments, which he then dismissed as nothing new.

Or in 2014, when Obama imposed a premature ceasefire on Operation Protective Edge for no better reason than the fact that Israel was winning.

The other examples of Obama snubbing Israel and cozying up to the Arab nations are numerous enough to fill a book. And, yet, this poor schmo has the chutzpah to complain when the American Jewish community accuses him of betraying them!
