Mike Wallace isn't loyal any credo save the dictates of his own warped ego. Wallace publically said he wouldn't lift a finger to warn Americans if they were under immediate threat of attack because he was a "journalist" not an American. This was during the Vietnam war but he wears the same skin today - albeit a lot more wrinkled.

Mike Wallace Says Ahmadinejad “a Swell Guy”

In an interview with Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Mike Wallace of CBS’s “Sixty Minutes” TV show came away quite impressed. "He's a swell guy,” Wallace said. “He really is. He's obviously smart as hell. He’s a college professor, for Christ’s sake. Nobody’s smarter than them."

"Granted he wants to wipe Israel off the map, but I’m a Jew and he didn’t kill me when he had the chance,” Wallace continued. “You’ve got to give him credit for that. I found him an interesting man. He has some intriguing ideas.”

One of the “intriguing ideas cited by Wallace was Ahmadinejad’s suggestion that the Jews of Israel could simply be relocated. “He suggested that a new homeland for the Jews could be established in Alaska, which I find fascinating," Wallace said. “He pointed out that if European Jews had been sent to Madagascar like the Nazis requested, they wouldn’t have had to kill them. You’ve got to admit he has a point there. And who are we to say that the stonings and hangings haven’t been a useful weapon in the battle against immorality?”

Be sure to catch the part where Mike refers to Israel as the "Zionist entity". I won't be surprised if it turns out he conducted the interview while wearing a kaffiya.

Wallace is not only a traitor to America, he is a traitor to his fellow Jews, because his fawning interview of that Iranian nutcase serves to legitimize the little runt in the eyes of the rest of the world.

As for the quote that Ahmadinejad "didn't kill Wallace when he had the chance", I can only say that Ahmadinejad must be slipping then.

I heard Wallace interviewed on the radio about this a couple of days ago. (He says he, himself, is Jewish...sheesh) He uses the term "Zionist entity" over and over again as if he believes it is something evil. He says Ahmadinejad isn't "anti-Jew", but against the Zionist entity on Muslim land.

What, exactly IS "the Zionist entity", anyway?

Sean Hannity interviewed Mike Wallace on radio the other day. Wallace came across as a senile old man (and that is being very generous to him). He justified his positions by inferring that as a result of being a dupe for Iran he was able to get this interview. Same philosophy that CNN used with their news about Iraq. Don't get me wrong, Mike Wallace was very pleased with his performance. Ugh!

Sean was confrontational to a certain extent but probably had to hold back because Wallace's son works for Fox. Chris must be proud of his father. (Your guess is as good as mine).

It's what the radical Muslims say instead of "Israel". I guess using the real name would be too much like acknowledging its legitimacy.

Yes, that's the interview I heard. You're right...Wallace did come across as the senile old man...forgetting what he was talking about...repeating the same sentences over and over to the different questions Sean was asking. Wallace was very sympathetic...almost empathetic with Ahmadinejad.

Its hard to beleive that Mike Wallace was drawn in,duped or hypnotized by the 2nd rising of Hitler in Iran. As an a Jew he is a fool to even come out supporting this guy as a "Nice Guy" or "Average Joe".

Mike has lost it or never had any moral corurage.

MYRON Wallace, a liberal semi-jew taken in by a dictator who knows how to massage the media whores. He's old, he's demented and he's worthless when it comes to knowing he's been had.

I don't see any neo-Nazis interviewed these days. Do they really use "Zionist entity"? I wouldn't have thought those knuckle-draggers even knew the word "entity" much less "Zionist".

There is a boycott planned if CBS airs this show with Iran's dictator/president.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/chat/1681327/posts?page=180

The main reasons: It gives him a platform to influence others; he still vows to kill all Americans and Jews; he still violates the human rights of his own citizens; he violates the UN by continuing his nuclear program; he supports and trains terrorists; we are at war against terrorists, and should support all positive efforts.

We will boycott the advertisers which pay for the airtime, so we believe they should have an option to pull out.

We will boycott CBS for allowing this content, unless they pull it.

Please pass this information on.

That, I believe, is what Amanutjob is really meaning. Wallace says he's not "anti-Jew" ("Why he even has Jews in the Iranian Parliament", etc.), just "against the Zionist entity".
He's full of it.

Wallace said. “He [Ahmadinanutjob] pointed out that if European Jews had been sent to Madagascar like the Nazis requested, they wouldn’t have had to kill them.

Wait a minute. I thought Ahmadinanutjob said there wasn't a holocaust (five times by my count). I wish he would make up his mind...before we bomb him.

"if European Jews had been sent to Madagascar like the Nazis requested, they wouldn’t have had to kill them."

The Nazis never had to kill anybody. It was purely voluntary. Ahmadinejad doesn't realize how absurd this statement is.

Apparently, a zionist entity is any group of Jews who refuse to be marched into the gas chambers. Mike Wallace is a disgrace to everyone.

Wallace jumped the shark... Buys into "Jews need killin" without choking.

An 88 year old one who needs to repent and turn to and believe in Jesus as the Messiah and Son of God before it's too late.

I read that Chris about the family considering a declaration of incompetence, kinda tough to do when CBS considers him a reporter w/ outstanding credentials. Looks like Mike's gonna have to be found running around nekid with an ax before something will be done about him.

We need to create a "Neville Chamberlain Supreme Appeaser Award" and make Mike Wallace an honorary recipient. It is astounding how naieve some of these liberal talking heads can be. They are gullible to a truly amazing and self-delusional level. That wouldn't be a problem, except that there are so many sheeple who stand ready to follow them over the cliff...

While doing a spell-check on "Neville," I came across the following paragraph describing his perspectives regarding Hitler pre-World War II. Read it and consider how it applies to so many of our liberal "friends" today, except that one should substitute "Islamo-fascists and the governments that support them" in place of "Hitler":

"Chamberlain believed that Germany had been badly treated by the Allies after it was defeated in the First World War. He therefore thought that the German government had genuine grievances and that these needed to be addressed. He also thought that by agreeing to some of the demands being made by Adolf Hitler of Germany and Benito Mussolini of Italy, he could avoid a European war." http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/2WWappeasement.htm
