John Edwards: The Problem Isn’t Ahmadinejad, It’s The Jews Who Don’t Want Him To Kill Them

From a column by Peter Bart via Hillary Spot:

The aggressively photogenic John Edwards was cruising along, detailing his litany of liberal causes last week until, during question time, he invoked the “I” word — Israel. Perhaps the greatest short-term threat to world peace, Edwards remarked, was the possibility that Israel would bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities. As a chill descended on the gathering, the Edwards event was brought to a polite close.

This statement is a real window into the foreign policy views of liberals like Edwards. In his world, the problem isn’t Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the terrorist supporting, Islamo-Fascist, holocaust denier, who has threatened to destroy Israel and is seeking nuclear weapons, it’s the Jews who are determined not to be victims of a 2nd Holocaust.

How could a man with that sort of warped mentality effectively run the war on terror? He couldn’t and neither could any of the other liberals running for President.

Update #1: The Edwards campaign is now backtracking hard, undoubtedly after being reminded of how weak this makes him sound and how important Jewish votes and campaign donations will be in determining who wins the Democratic primary:

“Columnist Peter Bart reports that Edwards told a Hollywood fundraiser last month that the possibility that Israel would bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities is perhaps the greatest short-term threat to world peace.

Edwards’ spokesman Jonathan Prince says the article is erroneous. He says Edwards says one of the greatest short-term threats to world peace is Iran acquiring a nuclear weapon.”
