Speaking to the liberal media lapdog Vox, Barack Obama revealed his contempt for Jews and his tolerance for IslamoNazis yet again by referring to the Paris supermarket massacre as a random shooting of a “bunch of folks.”
Bunch of folks being, in case you are brain-dead, Jews.
Of course, there was nothing random about it. The supermarket is a kosher supermarket where Jews shop for kosher products. Amedy Coulibaly, the IslamoNazi who murdered the Jews in that supermarket, boasted openly and proudly that he was targeting Jews.
Barack Obama denies the reality of the poisonous Jew-hatred that is a foundational element of Islam. He insists on the randomness of Islamic terror and compares it to petty crime in a big city in order to avoid confronting the malignant evil that is spreading throughout the globe.
There is nothing random about Jews being murdered. There is nothing random about Iran’s genocidal threats against the Jewish state and the Jewish people. There is nothing random about Muslims raping Christians, selling them into slavery, and subjecting them to ethnic cleansing all over Africa and the Middle East.
Jonah Goldberg observes:
He would never describe the targeting of a black church by the Klan as simple random violence — nor should he. And we know he’s perfectly comfortable denouncing crimes committed in “in the name of Christ” no matter how ancient they may be. But crimes in the name of Allah must not be named as such — or at all.
At Commentary, Jonathan Tobin writes:
Let’s first note that his characterization of the assailants again omits their Islamist loyalties and the fact that religion was the motivating factor for their crime. This is consistent with administration policy that seeks to cleanse ISIS, al-Qaeda, or other Islamists of any connection with the Muslim faith. This is absurd not just because it is wrong. It also puts Obama in the position of trying to play the pope of Islam who can decide who is or is not a real Muslim, a responsibility that no American president should try to usurp.
But it is also significant that once again the president chooses to treat a deliberate targeting of a Jewish business filled with Jewish customers as something that is random rather than an overt act of anti-Semitism. Doing so once might be excused as an oversight. The second time makes it a pattern that can’t be ignored.
This is a peculiar talking point especially since the increase of anti-Semitism in Europe with violent incidents going up every year is something that even the Obama State Department has dubbed a “rising tide” of hate.
Why does the president have such a blind spot when it comes to anti-Semitism? His critics will jump to conclusions that will tell us more about their views of Obama than about his thinking.
But suffice it to say that this is a president who finds it hard to focus on the siege of Jews in Europe or of the State of Israel in the Middle East. Nor can it be entirely coincidental that a president who treats Israeli self-defense and concerns for its security as a bothersome irritant to his foreign policy or seeks to blame the Jewish state’s leaders for obstructing a peace process that was actually blown up by the Palestinians would have a blind spot about anti-Semitism.
I do not believe that Obama has a blind spot when it comes to Jew-hatred. He has always consorted with, and continues to consort with, creatures such as Rashid Khalidi, Jeremiah Wright, and Al Sharpton — virulent Jew-haters, each and every one.
Characterizing the deliberate murder of Jews in a kosher supermarket by IslamoNazis as a random shooting is like calling Kristallnacht a random event in which Nazis, who did not represent the overwhelmingly peaceful German people, got a bit out of control and broke some windows.
