Melanie Phillips, in a Spectator blog posting entitled “The Fifth Columnist in the White House”, had the following comment about Felice Gaer. Gaer was a member of the U.S. delegation attending the pre-Durban II- World Conference Against Racism (WCAR) Review Conference in Geneva, Feb. 16th to 19th.
Mr Gordon: I think you, Melanie Phillips and Anne Bayefsky shoul be ashamed of yourselves. While you are on the sidelines Felice Gaer, David Harris and the American Jewish Committee are in the thick of things battling it out with the Islamic anti-Semites.
Of course, AJC should credit itself with getting Pres. Obama to pull out of Durban II. Perhaps the Jewish people would be better served if you saved your criticsms for those that are planning and doing us harm rather than being unfair to those that "do' on our behalf rather than just talk.
78 percent of American Jews, most of them Jews only in name chose to vote for Obama EVEN knowing of his associations, his penchant for hanging out with anti-Semites, even people who hated America. For this former Civil Rights worker, his choice to sit in a pew for 20 years listing to the most virulent hate ever (imagine if Jere Wright was DAVID DUKE) was most troubling. It clearly showed the guy had no character, no brains, no cojones. Or actually applauded these views.
We knew too, how he felt about Israel. Choosing the likes of those who could only come out of a Walt and Measheimer book, or from the staffs of Jimmy Carter and James Baker - those like Samantha Power, Rob Malley, Chas Freeman, and the Baker Boychiks spoke volumes. It is of utmost concern because he will clearly allow Iran to develop their nukes - and when that happens, only the Netanyahu government can stop it - and with the pressure, the lies from the Obamas and Clintons, the pro-Palestinian, Islamoworld viewpoint of this administration, it is clear Israel has an enemy in the White House.
Durban II and the $900 million to Hamas at a time when Americans could use that money is only the beginning. I hope that the 78 percent are happy, but please no tears when Israel is destroyed, and when they come for you, please board the trains first.
