I don't know if I blogged about Jewish Heritage Month here at BtB (I know I mentioned it on facebook) but at any rate, Carl does a much better job of it:
Obama's kind of Jew
President Obama issued a proclamation in honor of Jewish history month. That would be the same event at which Helen Thomas suggested two years ago that Jews should leave Israel and go back to Germany.
President Obama's proclamation, issued earlier this week, included the following.The official release which praises Jewish contributions to American society includes the following statement, “Their history of unbroken perseverance and their belief in tomorrow’s promise offers a lesson not only to Jewish Americans, but to all Americans. From Aaron Copland to Albert Einstein, Gertrude Stein to Justice Louis Brandeis.”Professor Alan Dershowitz of Harvard was enraged. Gertrude Stein was a collaborator with Vichy France (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
Silly me, I was enraged by the simple fact that it's not the government's job to explain Jewish heritage, but Dershowitz points us to the bigger picture ... where the shortcomings of the Obama administration are self-evident.
