Obama’s Iran Phone Call To Progressive Jews Included Anti-Semitic Memes And A Call For Help
President Obama’s Thursday evening phone call organized by the Anti-Israel group J Street and other progressive Jewish groups could be summed up in one sentence.
Please help because, those rich people are fighting this wonderful Iran deal because they don’t like me and they want war just like they did in Iraq .
In the 20 minute phone call (embedded below) Obama said over and over that opponents of the Iran deal come from the same “array of forces that got us into the Iraq war,” he said a “bunch of billionaires who happily finance super PACs” are “putting the squeeze on members of Congress.” A claim that belies the facts as the Israeli government recommended against the Iraq War.
However since the war began anti-Semites such a Pat Buchanan have been pushing the false meme that the Jews pushed America into war. Apparently Obama agrees with that meme. A point more than one participant in the group noticed.
Also the protesting the P5+1 agreement with Iran go way beyond the bunch of billionaires financing super pacs. Perhaps the president missed the news of twelve thousand New Yorkers showing up in Times Square to protest the deal and put pressure on politicians.
The Republican Jewish Coalition sent out a statement objecting to the president’s language during the call
During a conference call with supporters this evening, President Obama said, “The lobbying taking place on the other side is fierce, well-financed and relentless.”
Brooks responded, “Some of us have been around long enough to remember how Jewish groups – including Jewish Republicans – came down hard on the first President Bush for similar remarks.
“Apparently, the President’s claim that he ‘welcomes a robust debate’ was just rhetoric – like his administration’s repeated pledges to make Iran submit to ‘anytime, anywhere’ inspections.
