Regular Atlas readers know I have real problems with AIPAC. They dropped the ball long ago. I stopped attending their functions and events when they sat by and did nothing to expose Obama for the rat that he is.
Back in May of '08, a reader invited me to the AIPAC Wall Street dinner at Cipriani. Very chi chi. I went up to the Executive Director, Howard Kohr, and said I understood that AIPAC was "non-partisan, but Obama will be lethal for the Jews". Kohr scoffed. I went on to relate all that I had unearthed in my two years of relentless investigation of Obama and I laid it out, point by point, fact by fact, with as little hyperbole as I could. Kohr shook his head. He would have none of it. We are non-partisan, he insisted. To what point are you non-partisan? If there is a candidate, a party, an official who is a Jew hater, do you maintain neutrality, like Switzerland? He just smiled and walked away.
So of course this declaration is NOT coming from AIPAC but from AIAC. All of the major Jewish orgs have rendered themselves irrelevant. Shame, shame, shame on these useless organizations that have pilfered enourmous dough from guilty Jews and work to undermine our people.
The American Israeli Action Coalition (AIAC) today heavily criticized President Barack Obama’s anti-Semitism “czar”, Hannah Rosenthal, for her highly inappropriate public criticism of Israel’s Ambassador to the U.S., Michael Oren, and called for her immediate dismissal from her post.
AIAC is a non-partisan, non-political, issue-oriented NGO which whose purpose is to represent the united voice of the more than 250,000 American citizens living in Israel on issues that affect Israel, Israel-U.S. relations, and the Jewish people worldwide.
Rosenthal, who was a member of J Street’s advisory panel before Obama appointed her as his Anti-Semitism “czar”, criticized Israel’s Ambassador to the U.S., Michael Oren, for pointing out to an assembly of Jewish leaders that J Street was “fooling around with the lives of 7 million people.”
J Street is a radical, far left, anti-Israel, American organization funded by Arab and radical sources. It has been almost universally condemned by mainstream Jewish organizations.
Harvey Schwartz, AIAC’s chairman, stated “as a high ranking member of the Obama administration, Rosenthal’s criticism of the Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. is beyond bizarre, and highly offensive in the extreme. It is a virulent anti-Israel attack which AIAC interprets to be anti-Semitic. That the State Department took the highly unusual step of announcing its “complete support” for Rosenthal confirms that she was expressing the views of the Obama administration. Contrary to her duty to fight anti-Semitism, Rosenthal used her bully pulpit to advance it. This is deplorable.”
“Even more deplorable is the Obama administration’s public slap at Israel, utilizing Rosenthal as its mouthpiece,” Schwartz continued. “When coupled with the Obama administration’s numerous other slaps at Israel, including its almost hysterical non-recognition of Israel’s inalienable right to build civilian homes in its Jerusalem capital and Senator Mitchell’s recent public threat to withdraw U.S. loan guarantees from Israel, while at the same time saying and doing nothing to the Palestinians to ‘encourage’ them to return to the peace talks, the Obama administration has laid bare its anti-Israel focus and has proven itself to no longer be ‘an honest broker for peace.’ The more than 250,000 Americans living in Israel condemn this development.”
Aaron Tirschwell, AIAC’s Executive Director, declared that “Rosenthal has committed an unpardonable sin. She must go promptly. AIAC calls upon all American Jewish organizations, as well as all Americans of good will, to demand that the Obama administration dismiss Rosenthal forthwith.”
AIAC is devoted to effectively recruiting and activating the more than 250,000 expatriate American citizens in Israel in order to create a united voice that will be heard by the governments and people of the United States and Israel on issues that pertain to the continued safety and security of Israel and the Jewish people worldwide.
