WASHINGTON - When I ask a liberal American Jew involved in politics what he thinks of the claim that Rahm Emanuel is an anti-Israeli fifth column in the Obama administration, he laughs. "So, do they really think in Israel that Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod, Dan Shapiro, Mara Rudman, Dennis Ross and the other good American Jews who work with Obama are a fifth column?" And then he says slowly, like someone explaining something to a person who has difficulty understanding: "How many times do you have to be told ... "
"... that you love us?" I try to complete the sentence.
"No. That your policy is screwed up." The most interesting stories about Emanuel, the White House chief of staff, are recounted with the recording device turned off. "He has a good memory, and I don't want a dead fish delivered to me," snickers one of interviewees. Emanuel once sent a dead fish to a pollster who predicted a significant gap to the detriment of the candidate for whom Emanuel was working then, at the beginning of his impressive career.
While associates of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are convinced that Emanuel is inciting the U.S. president against Israel behind the scenes - and providing the amateurish psychological explanation that he is "a Jew consumed by self-hatred" - people in Washington who disapprove of his conduct don't look for profound psychological motives. Indeed, some sum up their viewpoint simply by saying: "He's a jerk."
With his coarse short-temperedness, Emanuel stands out even in a city like Washington, D.C, about which Obama himself once said, quoting president Harry S. Truman: "They say if you want a friend in Washington, get a dog."
Rahm is just a Socialist JINO (Jewish in Name Only).
“(Jewish in Name Only)” = Bingo.
Rahm is a commie. That’s all there is to it.
“Rahm Emanuel: Self-hating Jew or peace-broker?”
No, Rahm is an Israel-hating Jew.
Can I vote for “Walking Turd”?
What about “neo-liberal?” ;)
From the article: “...The enrichment menu included ballet lessons and visits to shows and museums. They also attended demonstrations with their mother, an activist for Afro-American civil rights, who was also arrested several times. Although Rahm did not pursue a career as a professional dancer, he inspired a spate of articles that presented him as proof of the fact that it’s possible to be both macho and a ballet dancer.”
Bibi in the IDF.
“Rahm is just a Socialist JINO (Jewish in Name Only).”
Perfect term: JINO!
Emanuel is a .....(I’m a lady I can’t type what I am thinking)
My money's on psychopath.
Great photo, Cinnamon Girl!
Have you checked out Robert Avrich’s website? http://www.seraphicpress.com/
He also wrote the article “Help, I’m A Hollywood Republican” in David Horowitz’s Front Page Magazine:
If Rahm is your broker, you better look for dead fish in your annual statement
If Rahm is your broker, you would discover he has been short selling into a rising market. Or at least, only siding with your enemies and telling you it will improve your position in the "real negotiations"
Honestly, Rahm and the other Obama servants are convinced that they must throw the Israeli Jews under the bus in order to make the US Jews popular in the Democratic party. Its probably that simple.
He’s not a Jew, He’d have to be human to be a Jew, and he’s not either. He is of the Cast Down...the Damned.
“No, Rahm is an Israel-hating Jew.”
and an America-hating Chicagoan
power hungry freak
