Great article by Wesley Pruden over at the Washington Times. Link here.
Fortunately, it occurred to a few key Republicans and several Democrats that he was a very odd choice for the job. The Republicans were mostly Christians, the Democrats were mostly Jewish, and it’s a shame this is important but Mr. Freeman’s friends on the left are trying to make this a religious issue. It’s time to blame the Jews again, this time for ruining poor Mr. Freeman’s new career as the chef in charge of cooking the intelligence served in the Oval Office.
Mr. Freeman has had a long if not distinguished career in berating the Israelis for struggling for survival and apologizing for Chinese repression of dissidents struggling only to breathe free. In a speech in 2005 he described Israel as the aggressor in the Middle East, and two years later accused the United States of “embracing Israel’s enemies as our own.” He apparently “forgot” that Israel’s enemies had on terrible occasion made themselves enemies of the United States, with their suicide-bomber attacks on targets in the Middle East and finally on the Twin Towers on September 11. But blame the Jews, anyway.
When Mr. Freeman surrendered to the inevitable and withdrew his name from consideration he distributed a two-page rant casting himself as a martyr to Jewish perfidy and treachery, done in by a Jewish lobby whose “tactics plumb the depths of dishonor and decency.” These Jews are “intent on enforcing adherence to the policies of a foreign government.”
