The Jewish daily FORWARD has added Barack Obama as the 51st. to its annual list of Jews who have shaped the Jewish story in politics, science, culture, the media, religion, propaganda and sports.
This was no surprise to me as I remember former Rep. Abner Mikvaner saying: I think when it is all over, people are going to say that Barack Obama is the first Jewish president.
In September 2011 – John Heilemann writing in the New York Magazine called Barack Obama “The First Jewish President“.
John Heilemann wrote how Obama and Netanyahu stood “arm-in-arm” during Mahmoud Abbas’ bid for an independent Palestinian state at the 66th session of the UN General Assembly in September 2011. He also praised Obama for backing Israel’s right to kill nine Turk aid workers on board Gaza Flotilla in international waters.
Anyone who has followed Obama’s political career – will tell you that Obama is a product of Jewish elites, from AIPAC to the Wall Street. To prove his Jewish credentials, some of Obama’s recent actions include his criticism of the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement, playing midwife to Iranian plot to assassinate Saudi ambassador in Washington and freezing $60 million aid to UNESCO for admitting Palestine as a member of the organization.
Interestingly, a recent Gallup poll found that Obama’s ratings among the Jewish voters fell by 28 points (down to 55%) – however, Obama has been able to receive more Jewish $$$$ for his re-election than his Republican opponents put together.
