Consider: Among the American-Arab visitors to the Obama White House have been officials representing groups which have been designated by the Justice Department as unindicted co-conspirators in terrorist trials; people who have extolled Islamic terrorist groups including Hamas and Hezbollah; people who have obstructed terrorist investigations by instructing their followers not to cooperate with law enforcement; people who regularly sermonize about the “U.S. war against Islam”; and people who claim that the U.S. government is framing Islamic terrorists as part of an anti-Muslim profiling campaign.It's not just been the Romney campaign on the one hand and the media on the other that have shown no interest in making this an issue -- even American Jews appear to either not have noticed or simply not to care about the implications of Obama's warm relationship with Islamists when it comes to Israel.
Individuals from the Council on American-Islamic Relations have visited the White House at least 20 times since Obama took office. Louay Safi, formerly executive director of the Islamic Society of North America, a front for the Muslim Brotherhood and for Hamas, visited the White House twice. Esam Omeish, former head of the Muslim Brotherhood-created Muslim American Society, visited the White House three times. The Muslim Public Affairs Council has secured the closest working relationship with the Obama White House, despite, according to Emerson, that organization’s record of anti-Semitism, whitewashing the terrorist threat and hostility toward law enforcement.
In the context of Iran's race to acquire nuclear capability on the one hand and an Obama-supported UN conference early next in Finland on a nuclear-free Middle East on the other, Israel's wariness about a second Obama term is understandable.
The best we seem capable of hoping for from the Jewish community this election is that the Jewish vote for Obama will huge -- but not as overwhelming as 2008.
