The title of this piece is meant to be ironic, right?

James Madison and John Adams both knew Hebrew. But then again , on election day, Obama will probably slap his forehead and say “Oy Vay!”

Somebody ought to take him up on his absurd claim that he knows more about Judaism that any other President, but that would require REAL journalism, besides which most journo-lists are utter boneheads when it comes to religion....

I’m betting it’s in the exact same way that Hitler thought he knew more about Judaism than most...

He’ll probably say something more like, “Those filthy, Jewish vermin failed me! Indeed they they stabbed the country in the back. That was why we lost!”

You took the words right out of my mouth. Any Jew that believes a word out of Zero’s mouth is a fool. Ask Bibi what he thinks of the Dictator in Chief.

Hey, add into this the selling out Egypt, Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq and Chinese dissidents, plus the Tibetanese. Not bad for one marxist president, but, then, again, that is what a marxist does, betrays people and their freedom while claiming a messiah status.

Obama should be renamed “Oh Brother!” everytime he claims that he has done something positive.

Reagan said it best: “There he goes again!”

consider the following . . .

In the weekly standard Obama is quoted as saying

Obama said, reminding his guests that "all his friends in Chicago" were Jewish - and at the beginning of his political career he was accused of being a puppet of the Israel lobby.

In the Washington Examiner Obama is quoted as saying

"(I)n some ways I am part of Poland because "I come from Chicago," and if you live in Chicago and you haven't become a little bit Polish, then something's wrong with you," Obama said during a press conference with Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk.

????? say what?

I disagree. Obozo IS a scholar - of Alinsky tactics for the purpose of pushing his socialist agenda down our throats.

You must secretly like Obama to give him that much credit.

How about “No Way!”.

LA Times secret, vault-protected 2008 videotape of Obama speaking at a California Arab dinner: Obama could prove how much he is on Israel's side by telling the LA Times to release the videotape of Obama speaking at the Arab dinner.

1. Rumor has it that in the videotape, candidate Obama said some things about the status of Israel that would upset American Jews.

2. As I recall, LA Times officials made a confusing and vague statement back in 2008 that they would not release the videotape because they didn't want the videotape to have unnecessary influence on the presidential race, whatever that meant.

3. In my opinion, LA Times officials have an ethical and journalistic duty to release the videotape so that we voters can decide for ourselves if the videotape damages Obama's presidential campaign especially among American Jewish voters.

4. Again, LA Times officials have an ethical and journalistic duty to release the videotape after hiding it under lock and key for these past 4 years, because after some voters watch the videotape, they may become so angry over what they hear that they could show their anger and change the course of American presidential history by voting for someone else other than Obama to be President of the United States come Nov. 2012.

He’s also an expert on south Asia, because he says “Pock-ee-stahn” and knows the names of a few curry dishes.

And: the “Austrian” language and “Cinco de Quatro” - remember that?

Smartest. President. Ever.

Rush and other notables in the real conservative media called out Zer0 as a complete fraud in @008.
We at FR knew the truth but those so-called “sophistos” of conservatism
criticised and called us “fringe” conservatives.

Wow! they were so wrong.
How about a mea culpa from the brain trust like Will, Krystol et.al?

This is beyond narcissism. This is delusional.

Don’t forget Obama’s war on the Catholic Church - as this undoubtedly ties in to that as well. It’s well-known that Poles greatly value their Catholic faith, by and large. It’s all an effort to paint the color of evil on anyone and anything standing against his political plans of destroying our nation.

The really sad thing is that there many Jewish people yesterday saying the most vile things regarding Poland, and the Polish people. I was actually shocked at the amount of venom being spewed against the Polish people. I *lost* a few *friends* yesterday on FB, but glad to know how they REALLY feel about me and my family - and the day after Memorial Day when my family was mourning the losses and sacrifices OUR POLISH family made in fighting the war in Europe? The horrors and odds they were up against in taking the beaches at Normandy? We ALL lost a great deal during WWII, and while I will never understand what it was like for the Jews, neither will I ever understand what it was like to feel helpless under the NAZI rule in Poland. I can only hope and pray that I, myself, would have the courage to stand for what I knew was right in the face of certain death. One’s desire for self-preservation and preservation of one’s family would be an extremely hard thing to overcome...

Those people were quickly replaced by those who - like me - understand what the Polish people were up against, how many lost their lives, and how many truly DID risk their lives and the lives of ALL of their family members to save the people they could.

For God sakes, the Poles TRIED to defend themselves with CALVARY HORSES against PANZER TANKS because that’s ALL they had! *We* did NOTHING??? It was the whole rest of Europe that did NOTHING, Hitler and Stalin hated the *Slavs* just as much as they hated the Jews. There were MILLIONS of Non-Jewish Poles slaughtered right along side their Jewish neighbors. And, MANY whose story will NEVER be told who sacrificed their lives, and the lives of ALL of their family members attempting to save as many people as they could. The names commemorated in Yad Vashem are but a small portion whose stories are known. How many Jews and their friends who attempted to hide them were all slaughtered together with no witnesses?

Were there Polish collaborators? Of course, just like there were collaborators of the NAZIs in EVERY country they overtook. But, to smear an entire ethnicity of people and an entire nation that was invaded and crushed under the weight of NAZI oppression of letting the NAZIs just *walk in*, and then accusing them of being more than willing to participate in the Holocaust? Of all groups of people in the world the Jewish people should really know better. It’s truly shameful behavior.

And then for Obama to claim he *knows* about Judaism? I must say - evilly brilliant plan on the part of Obama’s handlers... Way to secure the Jewish Democrat vote. That worked quite nicely for him, didn’t it?

First, attack the Catholic Church, then attack Poland and Polish people saying their outrage is feigned and imagined. Then the next day try to make Obama appear as if he’s the one who will protect the Jews against the evils of this world because he *understands* them? Is ANYONE actually taking note of this man’s ACTIONS, rather than his platitudinous words??? Hillary was right about that - Obama is all “just words”.

For Obama and his supporters to use people’s tremendous losses and pit them against one another to manipulate the truth, and prey on people’s fears. Way to go Obama - Satan would be proud, and I’m guessing so would *allah*, your father, FMD, Rev. Wright, Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson, etc...

As for saying you are a Judaic scholar? You are a scholar of NOTHING besides your own twisted and warped view of the world, Obama. A genius only in your own mind, and you readily accept praise that your handlers give you as being an honest assessment of the quality of your life, your heart and your beliefs.

This man makes me SO SICK. He is a danger to EVERYONE in this Country, and indeed the WORLD. I pray the Jews will wake up and realize exactly what Obama is attempting to do. As for the *conservative* bloggers and such who were more than ready to jump on the *hate Poland/blame Poles* for the death camps, and the labor camps? You should all be ashamed of yourself - especially for siding with Obama, and playing into his plan all along. At least *we* know now where YOUR hearts lie - and it all remains in anger and bitterness.

I pray for our world as these truly are very dark days... And, where we are headed is even worse...

PS - Obama... Your fellow Democrat Marion Barry wants to talk to you. He’s wondering how you got in trouble for using the word *Polish* when he used the word *Polack* the other day. I think he may want your help on learning the fine art of backhanded slurs...

James Madison and John Adams both knew Hebrew.

While many of the generations from the Settlement to the Founding knew Biblical Hebrew (because of the religious origins of most of the oldest universities), this should not be interpreted as a friendly attitude towards Judaism per se.

Many of the Founders (including the Unitarian Adams and the deists Jefferson and Madison) sympathized with Jews as victims of religious intolerance, just as liberals do today. But they also had a very low opinion of Biblical Judaism precisely because it preceded later intolerant religions in prohibiting the worship of other "gxds" and assigning penalties--including capital punishment.

To many of the more liberal Founders, Jews were okay as victims, but Judaism was merely an ancient theocratic tyranny.

I have never heard that theory. Have any sources on that?

I believe I said Biblical Judaism (and if I did not I apologize), meaning the entire Torah Theocracy . . . including the death penalty (at least theoretically) for idolatry, animal sacrifices, and certainly no religious freedom as understood by post-Lockean people. They could not have had any respect for such a religion, and could only have regarded it as the prototype of the medieval Catholic "theocracy" that was their bane. Jefferson and Madison were (after all) deists who rejected all revealed religion, and that very much includes the claims of Judaism.

I believe I have read that Jefferson regarded the Biblical system as based on an oriental satrapy, but I could be confusing him with Mark Twain (another "admirer of the Jews" who hated the Jewish religion). Jefferson certainly said that he didn't care how many "gxds" his neighbor worshiped, which is far from the attitude taken by HaShem, the original "Jealous G-d."

John Adams did indeed admire the Jews for "civilizing" the nations of the world. How much of the Holy Torah he acknowledged as being of Divine origin I do not know.

At any rate, the United States of America was not founded on Jewish principals but rather the principals of the "enlightenment." And while the Jews of the time may have welcomed that development as preferable to the centuries of persecution that preceded it, the "enlightenment" philosophy was no friend of HaShem or the Torah, as the anti-Semitism of the enlightenment philosophers makes clear. Hebraic mortar cemented the bricks, not of "American democracy," but of the "New England 'theocracy'" that preceded it.
