Obama Claims Anti-Semitic Iranians are Just Being ‘Rational’

Obama thinks that being a wild-eyed hater of Jews is a “rational” action and that the Iranian’s hate for Jews doesn’t make them bad people. How can Jews still support Obama?

Obama was asked recently about the Iranian’s unthinking and automatic hate of Jews and he said he didn’t find it all that big a deal[1].

Obama also rejected the notion that anti-Semitism at the highest levels of Iran’s leadership proves their government is irrational.

“The fact that you are anti-Semitic, or racist, doesn’t preclude you from being interested in survival,” Obama said, speaking of Tehran’s leadership. “It doesn’t preclude you from being rational about the need to keep your economy afloat; it doesn’t preclude you from making strategic decisions about how you stay in power; and so the fact that the supreme leader is anti-Semitic doesn’t mean that this overrides all of his other considerations.”

He said that, historically, anti-Semitic policies have been executed by governments across Europe and the Middle East at a “low cost.” His policy is to make clear to the Iranians that the cost is high, he said.

So, crazed Islamist terrorists having a nuke is no bid deal and being anti-Semitic and wanting all Jews killed is also no big deal?

What is wrong with this man?

You Jewish Democrats should be ashamed of yourselves.
