President Obama was forced to address the question of whether he is anti-Semitic.
In an interview – out today – with the editor of Forward, a publication that covers Jewish American issues, Obama was asked about the charge:
Then, I asked, does it hurt you personally when people say that you’re anti-Semitic?
“Oh, of course,” he answered quietly, leaning back in his chair, a cup of tea on an adjacent table still untouched. “And there’s not a smidgen of evidence for it, other than the fact that there have been times when I’ve disagreed with a particular Israeli government’s position on a particular issue.”
A president whose relations are so bad that the issue of his possible personal anti-Semiticsim arises. Never heard of that one before.
