Black President Endorses Ethnic Redlining: “Where Jews Can Live Must Be Restricted”

By Debbie Schlussel
America, you’ve regressed a long way, baby. As in, HusseinObamaJudenrein.
Remember when Black people couldn’t live in certain neighborhoods? If you’re a liberal Kennedy, you don’t need to remember, because the time is now. Several of the Kennedy family homes have restrictive covenants forbidding the sale of the homes to Blacks (and some of them to Jews, too).
Well, no wonder the Kennedys liked Barack Obama for President. He’s buying into the restrictive covenant and redlined neighborhood idea . . . but in another country.
Yup, Barack Hussein Obama–a Black President, whose own father–had he grown up in America, would be shut out of owning a home in certain neighborhoods–is now pushing bigoted ethnic-based housing policies on Israel.
He says, “no Jews can live here,” about portions of Israel that were the ancient grounds of Jewish history, portions of Israel where the Jewish patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob–and Joseph, though Palestinians destroyed his tomb–are buried.


Jews Not Wanted Here

US President Barack Obama said Monday after crucial talks with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Israeli settlement building in the West Bank must be “stopped.”

Eugene V. Rostow, the American who negotiated key U.N. Resolutions regarding what was and wasn’t Jewish land and the so-called “settlements”–which can mean neighborhoods of Jerusalem and its suburbs. And the fact is Rostow’s position was that such settlements are not “illegal” under U.N. or international law. Read his article on this issue. Given this, where does a foreign leader–in this case, Obama–get off telling a country where Jews can live and how it must “redline” its neighborhoods? That is illegal in America.
Why is this apartheid okay for America to dictate to Israel?
Hmmm . . . I think Binyamin Netanyahu ought to tell Barack Obama that he wants no new homes built for Black people in Brooklyn and no new homes for non-Mexicans in the the San Diego area.
That’s essentially what’s going on here.
There was a time–not long ago–when Jews in many neighborhoods in America were told they were not allowed. Usually the signs read, “No Dogs or Jews Allowed.”
Good news. For Barack Obama, in the so-called “West Bank,” dogs are now allowed. Yes, we’ve “evolved.”

It is sickening to have Jews be instructed not to buy homes in the cradle of their country for one and one reason only – they are Jews. Bibi should have told Obama Jews have as much right to live in Judea and Samaria as any American has a right to live anywhere he wishes to in his country. And Israel will never give rank anti-Jewish bigotry the force of law. Obama can take his hostility to Israel’s settlement enterprise and shove it where the sun don’t shine!

The very same people who accuse Israel of being an “apartheid state” want to force Israel to implement apartheid policies against Jews – because they are Jews. The only thing consistent about those who hate Jews is they make no secret of the fact they hate them, period. Where’s the outrage to Obama’s attempt to force apartheid and redlining policies upon Israel from fellow Jewish co-religionists here? They wouldn’t stand for blacks or Mexicans being kept out of American neighborhoods. And they’d be up in arms if the Arabs were commanded to stop building in Israel. When it comes to the Jews, all one hears is… silence.

Here is the problem. Obama’s home in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago is across the street from a reform Synagogue called KAM Isaiah Israel. The “Rabbi” of that Synagogue, Arnold Wolf, was a member of at least two organizations that I know of (probably a lot more) along the lines of “Peace Now” (Which would be better called “Peace Now, War, Terrorism and Jihad tomorrow”).
Arnold Wolf, who has died (I believe recently), was referred to as “Obama’s Rabbi” by many, including Obama himself.
Most Jews who live in Hyde Park share this philosophy, and these are the people who have influenced Obama.

Debbie, I have hope that the next Republican administration will seriously rectify Obama’s disastrous mistakes upon Israel. And you can tell your friends in Israel that it will happen in 2013. 😉

How did the act of a Jew building a home become such a friggin’ federal case!

Debbie – Related to this snippet, will we ever be able to get those Hebrew bumper stickers?

Obama demands no concessions from the Palestinians, just from Israel. I hope Bibi resists the arm twisting.

Debbie, this post has been bothering me all day. What the heck do the American Rabbi’s think of all of this crap?

Joel 3:2 – I will gather all the nations. I will bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. I will judge them there. They scattered the Israelites, the people who belong to me, among the nations. They divided my land.
So far, G-D is batting a thousand in the department of prophecy. If we participate in dividing Israel and accommodating a ‘two-state’ solution and restricting where the children of Israel can live in the land G-D gave to His People … you better be prepared for disaster of Biblical proportions.

I don’t think the comparison of Obama’s policy concerning West Bank Jewish colonists and the racial discrimination that existed in housing in the United States prior to 1970 is a valid one. The modern nation of Isreal was founded as a homeland for the Jewish people. But one could ask as David Ben-Gurion did “what defines a Jew”? However one chooses to define a Jew, the notion of Judaism as a prerequisite to some kind of national preference has had and will continue to have important repercussions between Israel and her neighbours. The present American administration has committed itself to bring about restitution to the Palestinians who were dispossessed of their land unjustly and bring about the respect of the original agreement by the United Nations in 1948 for the foundation of Israel. And this may involve obliging the settlers in Palestinian territories who are Jewish to move to the territory defined as the Jewish state. For, in Israel religion is the most relevant and burning issue. To have Israeli citizenship with ALL of the guaranteed rights and responsibilites, one must be Jewish, however the authorities in question choose to define that term.
The United States, on the other hand, requires no such pre-existing condition. So, discriminating against Jews, blacks, etc. in housing in the United States is contrary to the social contract. In Israel this is apparently not the case.
