    Thumbs Down Obama to Name "Anti-Semitism Monitor"

    Obama is expected to announce his special envoy to monitor and combat global anti-Semitism soon

    We're told that the candidate is female, with Chicago connections and a lawyer or activist background, and that State was ready to announce her this week and is awaiting White House clearance to do so

    One of the comments:
    Oh great, another government bureaucrat to protect a group of people from any criticism. Criticize the government and you're now a Nazi zealot, criticize a black president and you're a racist, now we have someone to officially make sure thaty if you criticize a Jew or Israel you're an anti-Semite. Another wate of tax money on nonsense...

    Obama's "anti-semitism czar" criticized in the past by the ADL
    Ed Lasky does a little googling and discovers that Rosenthal has been criticized by ADL chief Abe Foxman, who was compelled to write an open letter to Rosenthal after she attacked the speakers an Israel Solidarity Rally for their "narrow, ultra-conservative views of what it means to be pro-Israel..." Those ultra-conservative views were apparently espoused by Dick Gephardt, Harry Reid, and Natan Sharansky among others who spoke that day. Maybe I'm old fashioned, but it strikes me that an anti-Semitism chief probably shouldn't have said something in the recent past that warranted a rebuke from the ADL

    --------
    "I'll tell you point-blank: I have two grown daughters, and I didn't think that my kids were going to have to deal with some of the same anti-Semitism that I did as the daughter of Holocaust survivors," Rosenthal said. "It's a scary time, with people losing the ability to differentiate between a Jew, any Jew, and what's going on in Israel."

    Parse that quote and it's pretty clear what Rosenthal is saying -- the Israelis have it coming, but the rest of the world needs to distinguish between the good progressive Jews who are not living on Palestinian land and the Israeli Jews who are committing daily atrocities in the name of colonialism and occupation.
