In the now infamous New Yorker interview, President Barack Obama is claiming that widespread Muslim hatred of Jews is only decades old. Barack Obama was raised in the largest Muslim country in the world, Indonesia.

nobody in the democratic party is anti-israel. but what we are becoming ,as reflected by our commander-in-chief is more pragmatic. israel is a democracy who's survival we will always ensure even need be with the lives of our own brave soldiers. but enough is enough.
this is about pragmatism. and pragmatism is the american way and probably the only sensible philosophical ideal that we as a nation have ever come up with. why not practice what we preach?

Typical right-wing obfuscation that ignores the truth. First, the article does NOT give us a link to what Obama REALLY said, then they lie about it. It is FALSE that "Obama is claiming that widespread Muslim hatred of Jews is only decades old." Here is the original article from the New Yorker where Obama supposedly said this:

Here is the relevant paragraph:

“With respect to Israel, the interests of Israel in stability and security are actually very closely aligned with the interests of the Sunni states.” As Saudi and Israeli diplomats berate Obama in unison, his reaction is, essentially, Use that. “What’s preventing them from entering into even an informal alliance with at least normalized diplomatic relations is not that their interests are profoundly in conflict but the Palestinian issue, as well as a long history of anti-Semitism that’s developed over the course of decades there, and anti-Arab sentiment that’s increased inside of Israel based on seeing buses being blown up,” Obama said. “If you can start unwinding some of that, that creates a new equilibrium. And so I think each individual piece of the puzzle is meant to paint a picture in which conflicts and competition still exist in the region but that it is contained, it is expressed in ways that don’t exact such an enormous toll on the countries involved, and that allow us to work with functioning states to prevent extremists from emerging there.”

It is clear that Obama is talking about the MODERN state of Israel which IS only only decades old. He wasn't talking about the centuries old conflict between Islam and Christianity. If you really want to talk about anti-Semitism, shall we talk about the hatred that Christianity has had for Jews for nearly 2,000 years?

Justin...Sorry but I would have to disagree with you on the fact that no one in the Democratic party is anti Israel....there are enough people who are anti Israel to go around which does not mean it's everyone else but the Democrats that are anti Israel!I would go so far as to say Obama is very anti Israel and only puts up the front..periodically I might make it look like he supports them!

It's amazing Roger how well you think you can tell what someone means when they say something! You seem to do that a lot!

Obama is quite right, Muslim anti-Semitism is only decades old, 140 decades old.

Is there anything, Carol, that Obama could ever do to win your approval? If he walked on water, you'd scream that he didn't take his shoes off first. If he could change water into wine, you'd probably call him an alcoholic.

All you ever do is complain about Obama. Therefore, you have no credibility where he is concerned. Obviously, you are extremely biased against him.

obama has indeed some terrific accomplishments under his belt to benefit americans, in particular obamacare. and yet i do doubt his insight and wisdom when it comes to israel. muslim interests do appear to have the ion's share of his attention, to the detriment of israel, surrounded as it is by intensely hostile nations, intent on its annihilation.

the palestinians are a case in point, with a constitution specifically stating that israel has no place in the world, especially theirs. and obama keeps making nice to them, and pretending the palestinian constitution is somehow israel's doing.

muslim antisemitism is indeed age-old and deeply entrenched. only an ignorant leader would believe otherwise.
