Obama to Axelrod: ‘I Am the Closest Thing to a Jew’ Ever to Sit in White House

obamaA dismayed President Barack Obama recently vented to his friend and former chief campaign adviser David Axelrod about being perceived by some as a foe to Israel, The Daily Caller reported.

“‘You know, I think I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office,'” Axelrod recalled during an interview. “‘For people to say that I am anti-Israel, or, even worse, anti-Semitic, it hurts.'”

Opining on the deteriorated relationship between the U.S. and Israel, Axelrod criticized Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu for caring more about elections than the long-term security of his country.

“The world of politics everywhere is divided into two categories: the first and more common is the people who run for public office because they want to be somebody,” he said. “A smaller group is made of respectable people who run for public office because they want to do something — something positive. Shape the future in a positive way. I think Benjamin Netanyahu completely falls in the first category.

“He is a great politician. He knows what he needs to do to get through the next election,” Axelrod said. “But it seems to me that Israel has to think about what they need to do to get through the next generation.”

  1. Gee folks. Will he be wearing tzitzits next week

    This man has thunder for his heart and amazement for his drunk wine.

    If he gets any closer to Israel, he might be sitting on Netanyahu’s lap asking for another cigarette.

    G-d bless America. This guy is a crime

  2. I thing he means an “authentic Jew”, and I regret to say it but “modern Israel” is the more distance ideology from true Judaism.
