Obama Inc. Threatens Israel Over Criticism by American Jews

…somebody’s going to complain to Israel about this

Nothing deeply troubling and bigoted to see here. Freedom of Speech, like Freedom of Religion, is alive and well.

A US official close to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry said both men are disturbed over what is being perceived in their inner circle as “Jewish activism in Congress” that they think is being encouraged by the Israeli government, Israel Radio reported on Thursday.

The official has informed Israeli government figures that the president and secretary of state are disappointed over repeated attacks made against them by leading members of the Jewish community in the US.

So now Obama Inc. is trying to hold a foreign government responsible for criticism by American Jewish leaders and is encouraging that government to urge them to remain silent.

Obama is trying to use as a Israel hostage to silence domestic criticism. Just when you think he can’t do anything worse, he does.

Earlier this month, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon apologized after it was reported that he called Kerry “obsessive” and “messianic.”

Meanwhile Obama insulted Netanyahu on open mic and there was no apology.
