Sen. Chuck Schumer is famous for his ability to locate the nearest TV camera and plant himself squarely in front of the lens.
And yet, as about 8,000 rallied in Manhattan Wednesday night on an issue near and dear to Schumers heart Israels security the senator was a no-show.
The rally was in opposition to the Iranian nuclear deal. Schumer was absent because he hasnt yet decided whether to do the right thing and oppose President Obamas disastrous deal, or do the opposite of the right thing and shepherd it through Congress.
Israels supporters in the United States have many reasons to hope the deal goes down in Congress.
Yet one goes unmentioned: Schumers role in securing passage of the Iran deal represents what would be the capstone in Obamas quest to distance the United States from Israel.
To understand why, some brief background is in order.
In July 2009, about a month after making his famous address to the Muslim world in Cairo, Obama hosted national Jewish leaders at the White House.
Malcolm Hoenlein, head of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, offered the president a word of advice. If you want Israel to take risks, then its leaders must know that the United States is right next to them, Hoenlein said.

Schmuckie has been very quiet and keeping a low profile lately.
I have no doubt that Schumer would have been on the Judenrat in Warsaw had he been there.
Most pols will only do the right thing if it furthers their Machiavellian self-interests.
Why didn’t the organizers publicize this event ahead of time? It seems like they only told New Yorkers and a few friends.
Schumer apparently has been bought.
If history’s any guide, Schumer will throw Israel to the wolves.
Heck, he’d sell out his own mother if it would give him an ‘atta boy’ from the Party bosses.
A real “Stand up Chuck” moment.
Scmuck is still “studying” the agreement.
Schoooomuck is a suck ass. He will only do what is convienent for him personally. He doesn’t give a shit about this country.
schumer is a real live ambulance chaser. A phoney, fourflusher and a disgrace. New York has had some pretty good Senators in the past (Hillary is NOT one of them, her the carpetbagger). The Jewish community should disown and banish him. We all know he has done them in kind.
My thoughts exactly.
Is there a POSSIBILITY that George Schwartz aka Soros will make Chuckie an offer he can’t refuse and that will determine his vote?
