Posted on 04/24/2010 8:58:41 AM PDT by Federalist Patriot
Here is audio of New York Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer talking to a Jewish radio show - the Nachum Segal Show- where he blasted the Obama Administration's policy toward Israel as "counter-productive," and said it "had to stop."
Schumer said the "kerfuffle" during Biden's visit to Israel over Israeli construction in East Jerusalem "should never have been an issue to begin with" because it was in Israeli territory and only 5 minutes from downtown Jerusalem.
While Schumer said Israel should not have made the announcement while Biden was in Israel, he said Israel apologized for that and that should have been the end of it.
But Hillary Clinton called Netanyahu and "talked tough" to him, and then through a spokesman, they made that public. In fact, Schumer said the spokesman said the U.S.-Israeli "relationship" was dependent on how "negotiations" went. Schumer said that was "terrible," and should never have been said. The U.S.-Israeli relationship is far deeper and stronger than that. he called that statement a "dagger."
Schumer said he called Rahm Emanuel and the White House and told them that if they did not retract that statement by Hillary Clinton's spokesman, "you are going to hear me publicly blast you on this." They retracted the statement.
Schumer said that he and other Jewish members of Congress will soon meet with Obama, and they will tell him "this has to stop." They will push Obama to make it clear to the Palestinians that the U.S. is behind Israel.

A broken clock, yada yada... I still find Schumer one of the most detestable men in the Senate.
If Chuckie had any balls, he would lay it on the line with Hussein Obama. In essence, tell the empty suit that unless his attitude towards Israel changes, he can forget counting on a Yes vote from Chuckie on his legislative packages.
“A broken clock, yada yada”
Schumer lies! He is only pandering to the NY Jewish community.
Ding! Somewhere an angel just earned his wings.
You bought it, you own it, Chuck.
What a PUTZ!
That would make sense if American Jews weren’t all a bunch of Obamanutz themselves.
Well, when you put a Muslim (sympathizer) in the White House, what do you expect?
Chuckie needs to go. If he really cares about Israel, then he should be in Obama’s face.
Does he do stand-up comedy also?
Filing this in ...
Obama’s Outstanding Record of Dip-lunacy [and leftist dip-lunacy too]
As for Schumer, he probably read that recent poll —
Poll: Obama gets thumbs down on Israel [WND via CNN]
2/3 questioned in survey say president should be strong supporter of Jewish state
Schumer is probably reeling from his relationship with John Paulson:
Not all, just 99%.
Not to worry, 90% of the NY Jews will vote for Schmucky and Premeir Achmed; its their duty. 75% would vote for Hitler if he had a D next to his name.
Pray for America
Oh please, Chuckie. You’re a typical leftist Jew, meaning you’re a LEFTIST FIRST and a Jew only when convenient or profitable.
The liberal Jews bought the entire DemoFascist party, including the gangsta Obamunist islamo-nazi wing. They own it (because they have always believed in the deceitful "left-right" political spectrum nonsense (which only splits hairs among totalitarians), which leaves freedom and good will ENTIRELY off the spectrum and out of the picture. Most have repeatedly, rigidly, reflexively rejected capitalism and rational self-interest in favor of socialism and pure altruism).
(Personally, I'm glad there are more and more conservative, pro-capitalist and libertarian Jews appearing. But they're still relatively few and far between.)
Why would an American Jew vote and support an anti-Israel President and expect a good outcome?
He has to take a stand....his numbers must be in the toilet.
With the exception of Lieberman every Jewish Senator chose to toe the progressive party line and ignore Israel. Now that it’s very scary for Israel they’re going to expect the very same ones they’ve been castigating i.e. Repubs, conservtives,evangelicals to pull their chestnuts out of the money.
People like Schumer, Boxer, Levin et. al are the same people who care little about making messes knowing full well that someone else will come along to clean it for them.
The last thing I want to see is American troops fighting for Israel.
I hate to say this, but, I agree with Schumer. But, wait a minute, I thought this was the change they wanted?
I’m sure you are correct.
I’d rather see our troops ( If they have to fight) fighting for Israel than ignoring the fight or fighting against Israel.
Uriah Heep covers home base.
Oh please. These are just words. Dollars to donuts that he approached the White house and head of the DNC to get their permission to blast Obama about Israel, promising that he wouldnt go any further than that: words. He has no intention of backing his words with action.
“I thought this was the change they wanted?”
Here is another group of voters who were failed by the MSM.
Of course they should have known, but if you were relying on the NY Times for your news you were never going to find out the truth about the big O.
You would, however, have learned more than anybody ever wanted to know about Bristol Palin & Levi Johnston.
I only hope the educated voters, such as the Jews, are learning their lessons about the MSM.
I’m scared witless over Obama’s disgusting treatment of Israel, and I did call Schumer’s office and tell them I was glad he had finally spoken out.
Anyone who thinks good will come from harm to Israel is wrong.
Good question....and the answer is that Obama was the only game in town and he had no choice. Jewish liberals are libs first and Jewish second. I bet he hasn't seen the inside of a synagogue in eons except for political reasons. He is Godless man, if you ask me. Added to that, he is a shmuck. He even looks like a shmuck. Websters should insert a picture of his face next to the definition, that is how much of a shmuck he is.
Glad I’m sitting down.
It really is hard to understand why the American Jewish community supports Obama. But his numbers are dropping, and that may be why Schumer is trying to distance himself from Obama’s policies on Israel.
You and me both. The main reasons is the fact that I love God and because I love God I love the Jewish people. If not for them, I and the rest of the world wouldn't have Jesus. They are the only free people surrounded by oppressors and evil dictators. And God said, "I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you." Genesis 12:3
God bless and protect Bibi and the Jewish state of Israel and I pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
LOL! You sure can sling the yiddish well, Swede Girl!
Too late Chucky ‘no one cares about those littly porky bills’ Schumer...
Wow - even Putzhead is turning against His Oneness.
The list, ping
