Uh, maybe he went to the US press, and the US press didn't cover it.
One thing I have noticed is that beyond "Bubba and the Rednecks" kinds of antisemitism, real-world antisemitism never gets called for what it is--it's always framed as "you must try to understand the complex issues of diversity and multiculturalism" (insert obligatory BARF here).
For example, the folks in the Southwestern US who agitate for establishing "Aztlan" tend to make extremely anti-semitic remarks--and usually call for any and all Jews in or NEAR "Aztlan" to be exterminated. Does the mainstream press ever discuss this? Hell, no!

As it appears, this is an issue of security clearance, not the person's religious background. Security clearances are usually pulled for a very good reason, not least of which because they are so expensive to obtain. It seems only you, your buddies here, and the Jerusalem Post are making it into an "anti-Semitism issue." I don't care what the guy's background, if he has violated the rules he needs to have his clearances yanked. That would go for white-bread types, blacks, Hispanics and so on and so forth.
