Secret Service investigating Jewish newspaper column that discussed Obama assassination
Fox ^ | 1/20/12 | Judson Berger

Posted on 01/20/2012 2:51:39 PM PST by Nachum

The Secret Service says it is looking into a recent op-ed from an Atlanta publisher that floated the idea of green-lighting Israeli Mossad agents to assassinate President Obama in order to improve Israel's security against enemies like Iran.

The publisher and author, Andrew Adler, reportedly has apologized.

But Jewish advocacy groups condemned his comments as "outrageous," and Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie said the agency is "aware" of the incident.

"We're conducting the appropriate investigative steps," he told FoxNews.com.

Ogilvie would not comment on whether Adler has been contacted or whether his column was deemed a potential threat to the president.

In the Jan. 13 column in the Atlanta Jewish Times, Adler floated three scenarios for how Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would deal with a nuclear Iran and other threats in the region.

Adler wrote that Israel could order a strike on Hezbollah and Hamas, or a strike on Iran's nuclear facilities.

You mustn’t talk about Democrat Presidents like that. It was OK when dozens of people called publicly for Bush’s assassination.

But, seriously. I remember from the clinton years, that you had to be VERY careful not even to joke about something like that.

The rules were: Don’t joke about bombs in airports, and don’t joke about assassinating the POTUS.

Make a movie about offing him, like some leftards did about killing Bush. That would be OK, right? I mean, it was OK then!

The flatfeet in the Secret Service apparently never considered that the hit on a president unfriendly to Israel might be a hit on Achmedinijad of Iran?

Oh, yes, Achmedinijad of Iran is not as unfriendly to Isreal and its national security interests as other presidents such as...

...Nicholas Sarcozy.

Why make the clown President a Martyr?Its something muslims long for anyway. It wouldn’t help Isreal.Isreal has to do what it must do to defend its self.Either with America’s help or without it.

Isreal’s defence needs come first.They have to live amongst those animals.

“A third option, he wrote, would be to “give the go-ahead for U.S.-based Mossad agents to take out a president deemed unfriendly to Israel in order for the current vice president to take his place, and forcefully dictate that the United States’ policy includes its helping the Jewish state obliterate its enemies.” ”

Looks like someone may have just bought themselves a job as a stringer for the Federal Prison Quarterly Newsletter.

Knocking off Obama would be a mistake of the major degree. We'd never hear the end of it with the endless “honors” that would be bestowed upon him posthumously. Every street not named Martin Luther King Avenue would be named Obama Street, our paper money would have his likeness upon it, there would be several holidays to honor him and the white guilt would make gun control and concentration camps for white people a reality. Let Obama live and let him show us the idiot he really is. As it is he's setting race relations back fifty years.

If the Mossad even thought about this, they would have done it in 2007 before he even declared.

Killing Obama would make him a tin saint—like JFK—I don’t want to see 3 days of mourning—TV specials like “Barry we hardley knew ye” and such clap trap—I would not want him buried at Arlington as some sort of hero. Best would be if the true nature of this fellow becomes known to the people—all the shady tricks and such (and good things—if they exist). I want him as a failed president—so no one will try to put his like in office again—not a mythic hero. Its not a race thing—its a competencies thing —If his leftest actions could have saved the nation and brought back jobs that would have been good—but they did not! He failed and in the words of Donald Trump—he should be fired.

Much ado about nothing. The term used was “a president”. Zero’s name wasn’t used, and the guy didn’t advocate for it. He threw it out there as a what if scenario.

I think this is an example of poor writing skills.

For example, were he to carefully preface this to put it in a larger context, he could have done so in way that would not have been so offensive.

As an example, he could have looked at far more likely scenarios of first, would *Iran* be contemplating the assassination of US leaders. Iran is an enemy of the United States, and if they could have, it would not be beyond the pale to suggest that they would *desire* to kill every US president since Jimmy Carter, inclusive.

But from Iran, he could have moved out to other Muslim nations, any of which could or would, with various levels of secrecy, plan, encourage, or just permit people within their nation to make such an attempt, as long as it offered them some modicum of “plausible deniability”.

It becomes quite a list, really. And a serious one, because of the administration’s willingness to invite Muslims of low character into the federal government, and even the White House itself. Talk about clutching a serpent to one’s bosom.

From there he could finally migrate to Israel, and point out that even among Israelis, Obama is not universally adored, admired, respected, or even considered a friend. Many individual Israelis, or even factions, would look at what Obama has done in a hostile manner.

But does that mean any of them would try to assassinate him, much less their government? This is highly unlikely, because Israel, unlike many Muslim nations, is a rational democracy.

Importantly, they are one which has freedom of speech, in fact, a seeming inability to shut up at times, even when discussing matters of grave international consequences. Were there such a burning hatred of Obama in Israel, the last thing one would expect would be silence on the matter.

And not only that, but they would understand that the best way to get Obama’s attention is to throw their support to his American political opponents. Likely also, they would write endless opinion pieces for publication in America deeply criticizing Obama for his foreign policies that endangered Israel.

The bottom line is that political assassination is in the domain of primitive barbarians, not people cultured enough to make a cutting remark at a cocktail party before closing their chequebook in disdain and leaving early.

The truth is, we could run that special now because we really don’t know who he is or where he came from; he’s just...here.

“...and forcefully dictate that the United States’ policy includes its helping the Jewish state obliterate its enemies.” ”

The writer is not simply calling for the assassination of an American president, he is calling for a foreign state to take control of the US government.

He needs to be convicted of Sedition on locked up in a federal prison doing hard labor.

With all due respect to those who worry that an assassinated Obama would grow in death to the stature of MLK or JFK, can you supply even one quote from an Obama speech that would be used as support from such growth. There were some positive things that could be said about MLK or JFK. I'm at a loss to think of a single positive thing that could be said about Obama. Greatest Charlatan of all time maybe?

Totally agree.

I don’t wish the Cretin-in-Chief to become a martyr.

He is a t*rd, a slime mold, less than human. (Not because of race, but because he is a liberal.)

He is nothing.

And I want him to live long enough for him to realize that the entire nation agrees with this premise.

I don't think Israel would do this but let me state this clearly: obama might be a Marxist, anti-American, asshat, but he is our Marxist, anti-American, asshat. Let us take care of him our way. I don't want this piece of shit martyred. Censor me if you must mods and those with virgin ears.

Even rumors of this would be a gift to hamas, hizbollah, and fatah, and would push Obama even further into their corner, and he's already one of their biggest cheerleaders against Israel.

It also plays right into the hands of anti-Semitic Blacks, who have been spending a lot of time and energy telling their flocks how Jews are blood-suckers, and how the International bankers are keeping them down. Remember "Hymie Town?" Remember "Freddies?" There are so-called "Black Leaders" just looking to use Jews (through their association with Israel) to scapegoat all the perceived problems of the "oppressed minorities."

Some Muslims who have been adopted by our military have murdered soldiers. Obama has planted politically active Muslims all over the government...sure they are all “moderate” Islamists. They got their way into our government because they want to advocate for the Islamic agenda. When they don’t get their way, and they have access to elected leaders and their staffs, I know what is going to happen. We have watched it unfold in the military.

The Secret Service is a day late and dollar short. DC, including homleand inSecurity, is now infiltrated with radical Islamists. Jan the Man was questioned in Congress as to why she gave top secret clearance to a known Islamic radical. He was later caught trying to shop inside information. There is plenty more we don’t yet know about, but we will in time.

So now the Secret Service is going to break all bad on a Jewish guy in Georgia for something he wrote where he never said that he would do that to the President. It’s a lot easier beating up citizens than it is challenging the guy putting the Muslim Brotherhood in power everwhere - including DC.

This country is getting wierder and wierder.

You are right. None of our loyal people in DC have a problem with a President who went to a church preaching:

Now, surprise! He’s putting the Muslim Brotherhood in power everywhere and the are chasing down a Jewish reporter and Georgia for writing something stupid!

When LBJ killed JFK (with the assistance of J Edgar Hoover), he used JFK's popularity to set the stage for the socialist state that is causing American to crash and burn.

Obama, America's first Muslim President, is doing everything you'd expect a radical Muslim to do to try and destroy America. Oil Pipeline? NEVER, Obama loves American money flowing to the countries that are trying to destroy America.

Stimulus? I won't even insult you by asking how spending $Trillions is supposed to create jobs.

Libya? Any idea why an American President used the US Military to set up radical Muslim in Libya.

As you look at this "FAILED" American President, look at the Muslim side. He is an incredible success, exceeding all expectations as he destroys the economy and the country. He's doing it on purpose, exactly like any Muslim terrorist would.

Just like you have no idea that LBJ killed JFK, you apparently have no idea Obama is a radical Muslim even though both of those things are Obvious to even the most casual observer.

I think a good analogy would be a comparison to the various House committees that investigated communist infiltration, such as Overman (1918), Fish (1930), SCUA (1934–1937), and HUAC (1938–1944); but if, instead of investigating secret communists, they were investigating open communists who had been invited to be in our government by friendly Democrat administrations, to show that we were an “open minded” nation and “willing to engage *moderate* communists”, while encouraging communists to immigrate to the US.

And that such investigations had to carefully avoid “offending” communists and their communist sensibilities, despite violent and vicious attacks perpetrated against non-communists around the world by communists, and their demands that the US government must obey communist rules and laws, or at least give special privileges to communists so they could obey their rules and laws.

And there would be organizations like CAIR, perhaps CACR, loudly protesting any real or imagined offenses against foreign and American communists in the US, and bitterly protesting American support for a small, non-communist nation surrounded by hostile communist nations, which sought to protect itself after it had repelled repeated, unsuccessful communist invasions with genocidal intent.

Not a good idea any way it is looked at. First you don't do such things as decent people and second they would turn him into a god. His legacy would make JFK look like a dilapidated, wet mutt. In fact it would be much more useful to them as a propaganda tool than if he goes on failing on every front as he is doing. If I were him, at this point, I would be more afraid of my trusted handlers than anyone else. I hope they aren't trying to set the Jews up as the fall guy.

I know in my heart that he is and bless you for stating the truth. He’s so dangerous that I think even a lot of Freepers must not get it or they wouldn’t talk about “sitting it out” if they don’t like our nominee. I hope at this point it’s Newt because he’s on the right track about the Islamic threat and the assault on Christians and Jews, but no matter what, we have GOT to get BHO out.

It’s literally a matter of life or death.
