“…because he read about it!”
PROBABLY KNOW MORE ABOUT ISLAM THAN OBAMA… Â (Sultan Knish)
He’s also the first ‘all things to everyone’ (Americans excluded) president:
From here on its only a small step Â before Â Obama becomes the firstÂ woman & transgender Â president on a magazine cover. Â I bet Obama will be wearing lipstick too.Â Shoot, we did that to him already. …….And he wasÂ depicted as a rainbow Lincoln-Obama, who could take that away from him?
Â So he read about it, eh?
Just like the Obaminators ‘spiritual advisor’ Jeremiah Wright of the phony church of ‘Black Liberation Theology’ , where Hussein the community organizer spent 20 years listening to his hateful rants without ever …. hearing anything:
In the meeting, Obama reportedly boasted about his knowledge of Judaism, telling the leaders that he thinks he knows more “about Judaism” than all past presidents. He said he gained this knowledge of Judaism from reading.
“Obama … stressed he probably knows about Judaism more than any other president, because he read about it,” Â — (Saul Alinsky comes to mind….)
The preposterous, boisterous narziss & sociopath is not only an insolent, arrogant putz who believes people speak ‘Austrian’ in Austria; he is also ignorant of Â the fact that both previous presidents Â JohnÂ AdamsÂ and JamesÂ Madison spokeÂ biblicalÂ Hebrew, as well as Latin and Greek.
- Obama vandalizes White House presidential biographies to insert himself
- “I guess it’s Obama’s great knowledge of Judaism that spurs him to argue Jerusalem’s division is up for negotiation,” tweeted the National Review’sÂ Jim Geraghty.
Do you know how much Obama knows about Judaism? He knows that Jews don’t care about Jerusalem.
Do you know how much Obama knows about Judaism? Beats me, but his speechwriter is totally on the case.
Prof.Â Jonathan Sarna got a callÂ from the White House yesterday morning.
The topic of Sarna’s new book from Nextbook Press “When General Grant Expelled the Jews” was going to be discussed during the president’s speech at that evening’s hot Jewish D.C. ticketâ€”not the party celebrating the 25th anniversary of Congressman Barney Frank’s coming out, but the White House reception for Jewish Heritage Month.
The speechwriter that contacted Sarna wanted to clarify some facts (like where the hell is the military department of Tennessee), but Sarna also suggested that the President note that Grant had made amends later in his lifeâ€”a suggestion that made it into the speech.
Luckily O has speechwriters to do his readings on Judaism for him. But here’s another book topic, “When Barack Hussein Obama Tried to Expel the Jews from East Jerusalem.”
THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING
Peter Beinart has become the clown prince of the Anti-Israel left. His big blog project, Zion Square, Open Zion or I Can’t Believe It’s Not Zion, grinds along, unattended.
Desperate for attention, Beinart scrambles into any issue to pick a fight with the “right-wing” Jews, who have even less political influence than he does.
In his latest post, which has about 6 comments and 27 likes (The Daily Beast sure is getting value for its money), Beinart delivers this unintentional piece of comedy.
Obama does know more about American Jewishness. This is a man, after all, who has read Philip Roth, Saul Bellow, Leon Uris and David Grossman (an Israeli writer popular among American Jews) and was influenced by Saul Alinsky and Abraham Joshua Heschel.
Obama contends that he knows more about Judaism because he reads. Beinart contends that Obama knows more about Judaism because he reads Philip Roth and Leon Uris (presumably not The Haj).
So Obama’s knowledge of “Jewishness” derives from four writers, most of whom were popular before Obama was born, and of course Saul Alinsky, the man who well… had Jewish DNA.
I imagine Bush has read a few books by Jewish writers. His father almost certainly read something by Uris and Wouk. Clinton read books by Jewish writers too.
Lenin, was influenced by Karl Marx and read Marcel Proust, he was as aware of Jewishness as Obama.
But let’s bring the unintentional comedy to a close.
Second, Obama understands far better than any previous president the way in which American Jews have adapted their prophetic tradition and deployed it in the struggles against economic exploitation, racial discrimination and war.
So to sum up, Obama understands Jewish liberals who dress up their liberalism in a religious mask because he is a liberal who dresses up his liberalism in a Jewish mask.
Rather than understanding Jews… Obama understands liberals.
Beinart’s unintentional admission is that neither he nor Obama can actually talk about Jewish identity, all they can do is talk about liberalism. They view Jewish identity only as a vehicle for liberal politics.
The species of Jewishness that Obama understands is Beinartism. It’s not Jewish and it’s not Judaism. Jews don’t exist in it except as vehicles for left-wing activism.
What Obama understands, via Heschel and Alinsky and his many progressive Jewish friends, is Tikkun Olam, a form of Jewish identity that, like it or not, is more pervasive in the United States than either observant Judaism or active Zionism
But if that’s true, then why does Beinart’s screed only have 6 comments, and why do he and his ilk need to lie and call themselves “Liberal Zionists”, instead of admitting that they are not Zionists and that they would like to do away with the Jewish State?
If the left really has the upper hand in Jewish identity, then why are Beinart and his J Street ilk too afraid to own up to what they truly are?
IT’S LIKE A DISEASE OR SOMETHING…
What do you talk about when you;re handing out Medals of Freedom?
If you’re Obama, you talk about the same thing that you always talk about. Your own greatness, your own pervasive specialness and the amazing historicity that someone whose middle name is that of a Muslim warlord and mass murderer is sitting in the White House.
“No one ever picks up a guitar, or fights a disease, or starts a movement, thinking: ‘You know what? If I keep this up, in 2012 I could get a medal in the White House from a guy named Barack Obama. That wasn’t in the plan. But that’s exactly what makes this award so special,” Obama said.
Is this some kind of mental illness? I’m asking this as a serious question. Does Obama walk into pizza shops and give his order as,
“You probably never thought that in the year 2012 you would be getting an order for a deep dish pizza with extra boiled arugula and squid on top from a guy named Barack Obama, a happening dude who happens to live in the White House, and who is influencing your life and mine in many special ways.”
At this point if I ever met Obama, I would just have to ask him, “What the hell is wrong with you? Did you not get enough attention as a child?”
Who do you believe? Me or your lying eyes?
According to a report atÂ Ynet News, Obama blamed Republican bigotry for the perception that he is not friendly to Israel:
Now, he said, the Republicans are trying to portray him as not being supportive ofÂ IsraelÂ by stressing the fact that his father was Muslim and he has a Muslim name, as well as by claiming that he had been overly aggressive in pushing Prime Minister BenjaminÂ NetanyahuÂ to promote the peace process with the Palestinians.
