Former President Barack paid a visit to a New York City synagogue this week where he implied that his criticism of Israel while he was in office was just tough love and that he at heart “basically a liberal Jew” as he defended his policies.
Obama’s speech to worshippers at Manhattan’s Temple Emanuel is yet another example of how he continues to meddle in the nation’s foreign policy after he left office.
It was this week that the Trump administration announced that the U.S. embassy would be moving to Jerusalem ahead of previously planned. Vice President Mike Pence reiterated this news before the Knesset on Monday while he was in the holy land.

As reported by the Israeli newspaper Haaretz “Obama Says He Criticizes Settlements Out of Friendship to Israel: ‘I’m Basically a Liberal Jew’”:
In a rare public appearance, former U.S. President Barack Obama spoke at a synagogue in New York City this week about his relationship with the Jewish community and his administration’s policy toward Israel. Obama described himself as “basically a liberal Jew” and said that criticizing Israel’s settlements in the West Bank was part of his support and friendship to Israel.
The event at Temple Emanuel in Manhattan marked the first time that Obama spoke publicly about Israel since leaving office. The 44th president said that his administration gave Israel more military support than any previous administration, referring to a Memorandum of Understanding signed between the United States and Israel during his last year in the White House. “This is not a matter of dispute,” he said.
Obama defended his decision to abstain at a December 2016 UN Security Council vote denouncing Israeli settlements. He explained that vetoing the resolution would have hurt “our credibility on human rights.” He also stated that “to be a true friend of Israel it is important to be honest about it, and the politics of this country sometimes do not allow for it.”
Obama said that the situation in the West Bank was “not sustainable” in the long term and could endanger Israel’s existence as a Jewish and democratic state. He warned that settlements could make the creation of a Palestinian state practically impossible if they continued to grow at the current pace. Obama also warned about what he called a “truth decay” in the political discourse in the United States.
The $225 event tickets sold out shortly after registration opened in September. Obama said during the event that a number of his staffers – current and former – told him their family members were going to attend the evening.
Obama has been the penultimate Teflon-coated bullshit salesman and the media has given him a free pass for nearly a decade and will continue to do so.
Thanks to the corrupt media, very few Americans know about THIS:
A 2005 picture of Obama and his good friend the Jew hater and racial hatemonger Louis Farrakhan. It is a picture that was covered up by the Congressional Black Caucus and only saw the light of day after it was published on a black identity extremist website.
So how do we reconcile the “liberal Jew” with the anti-Semitic views and statements of Farrakhan including:
About Louis Farrakhan
Farrakhan blames Jews for the slave trade, plantation slavery, Jim Crow, sharecropping and general black oppression. Farrakhan’s tone grew more belligerent in June 2010, when he sent letters to several leaders of the Jewish community as well as the Southern Poverty Law Center demanding that they realize the evils they have perpetrated and that they work to further Farrakhan’s goals. The letter ended with a threat to “ruin and destroy your power and influence here and throughout the world” if his terms were not met.
“The Jews, a small handful, control the movement of this great nation, like a radar controls the movement of a great ship in the waters … the Jews got a stranglehold on the Congress.”
Saviour’s Day speech, Chicago, Feb. 25, 1990
“And you do with me as is written, but remember that I have warned you that Allah will punish you. You are wicked deceivers of the American people. You have sucked their blood. You are not real Jews, those of you that are not real Jews. You are the synagogue of Satan, and you have wrapped your tentacles around the U.S. government, and you are deceiving and sending this nation to hell. But I warn you in the name of Allah, you would be wise to leave me alone. But if you choose to crucify me, know that Allah will crucify you.”
Saviour’s Day speech, Chicago, Feb. 25, 1996
“We can now present to our people and the world a true, undeniable record of the relationship between Blacks and Jews from their own mouths and pens. These scholars, Rabbis and historians [that Nation of Islam researchers studied] have given to us an undeniable record of Jewish anti-Black behavior, starting with the horror of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, plantation slavery, Jim Crow, sharecropping, the labor movement of the North and South, the unions and the misuse of our people that continues to this very moment.”

Just more Russian propaganda from the Kremlin agents at Fox News?
Hardly, those are directly from the website of the radical leftist Southern Poverty Law Center.
Basically a liberal Jew my ass.
