Obama declares May Jewish American Heritage Month
haaretz ^ | 4/30/10 | Natasha Mozgovaya

Posted on 04/30/2010 5:59:11 PM PDT by Nachum

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."

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.

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.

The question is, will American Jews allow their support to be purchased for Jewish Heritage Month?

Obviously a feeble attempt for support of the American Jew.

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.

I think they missed the point of the press release. What Obama said was:

May is the month the Jews will be history.

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 prefer to think he chose this month because he is about to hammer Israel at the UN.

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.
