U.S. President Barack Obama on Friday declared May Jewish American Heritage Month for 2010, calling it a time to honor "the invaluable contributions Jewish Americans have made to our nation."
Obama said in a statement that the U.S. has always been both a haven and a home for Jewish Americans, including those who arrived in the country "before America's birth" and those "who sought refuge from the horrors of pogroms and the Holocaust."

The list, ping
....trying to suck up to American Jews...he knows that their support is slipping.
And I’d like to point out that Jews that survived the Holocaust had to come to the US via Ellis Island with paperwork, unlike others today.
Well good for the Jewish community. They stood up, they spoke up and look what they got...a whole month dedicated to them. Uhbama’s backpedal is a rewarding thing to witness, even if he makes tho he makes me wanna puke. He hates um, they know it, but at LEAST he has to show our Jewish folks respect here at home...look for him to continue to trash them for real, in Israel because he is depending on this bribery crap to get them to shut up.
Prezactly! He’s making moves against Israel.....and thinks this will appease those ‘stateside’.
Next Obama will be saying Kaddish (the prayer for the dead) when Israel is destroyed by Iran.
Thanks a lot Obama. F***K You, you red traitor, race-baiter and anti-semite.
We’ll remember in November.
Why? Because on April 30 Hitler committed suicide?
Oh yeah....one big ROYAL F’in for that sorry little marxist scum.
The question is, will American Jews allow their support to be purchased for Jewish Heritage Month?
Oh dear God!
Israelis, whatever you do.....
DON’T BEND OVER! (cause here it comes)
It’s just one stinking month.
Obama continues to insult the Israel state, backing away from the obvious confrontation pending between Israel and Iran. When the inevitable conflict occurs, the Obama administration will be back pedaling,sucking wind and alienating what remains of the United State's former allies.
They are making huge piles of Obama photos in Israel today, and setting them on fire. Watch out! Whenever dear leader issues such a big-lie proclamation, he has something completely opposite planned.
May is the month the Jews will be history.
......and to show his appreciation Obama will provide the ink!
Asian Pacific Americans thrown under the bus...
I’m waiting for German-Welsh-English-and-who-knows-what-else month. Don’t I get a month, too?
Meaningless word from a liar.
Someone seems to have reminded President Flapping Gums that the party needs the Jewish vote.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Wonder what June is going to be?
You hit the nail on the head!!!
Now why is May chosen as the the month for this? Any particular historical reason? He is insulting anti-communist Jews by choosing May Day as the time for this proclamation.
Probably, but this isn't the way to do it. Having a designated "heritage month" or "history month" is downright embarrassing. ...although I didn't quite realize the extent of the embarrassment until right now.
I agree with you.
I prefer to think he chose this month because he is about to hammer Israel at the UN.
JIHAD WATCH.org (JOURNAL SENTINEL, April 30, 2010): "MUSLIM STUDENTS ATTACK JEWISH STUDENTS AT UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN-MILWAUKEE" (SNIPPET: "One Jewish student was reported injured and a Muslim student was arrested...") (Posted May 2, 2010) (Read More...)
Thanks, Zer0. I declare June to be Kenyan Heritage Month.
GWB picked May in 2006, as a followup to 350 years of a Jewish community in America. As a community that’s usually attributed to the arrival of a group of Jews in New Amsterdam fleeing Brazil. They arrived in September, but Spanish heritage month already claimed September and October, so I guess May was what was left. Don’t want any overlap.
I would have thought it was because Israel was proclaimed in 5/'48.
But at any rate I agree. Jewish Dems are so pathetic any little sop thrown their way will be an excuse to maintain that all is well and to stay loyal.
Whoop-dee-doo. Another meaningless month designated for meaningless commemorations, probably saluting the likes of Mel Brooks, Barbara Streissand and Steven Spielberg. Time for me to return to the US. This changes everything.
