trump's nominee for Israel ambassador calls President Obama an anti-Semite

President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for US ambassador to Israel is the head of an organization that is being sued by Palestinians for its role in the theft of their land for settlements and other Israeli war crimes.

Announcing the nomination, the Trump transition team said that David Friedman would serve from Jerusalem, “Israel’s eternal capital” – signaling that the new administration intends to move the US embassy to the city from its current location in Tel Aviv.
Friedman is being described as “more extreme” even than the Israeli government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

As the Tel Aviv newspaper Haaretz reports, Friedman has called President Barack Obama an “anti-Semite” and labeled supporters of the liberal Zionist lobby group J Street as “kapos” – a term used to describe Jews who collaborated with the Nazis in the death camps.

3. I have a friend who lives on an illegal Israeli settlement and he too

has designated President Obama as an anti-Semite simply because Obama wouldn't rubberstamp existing settlements and future land grabs. Anti-Semitic, not just anti-Zionist. Obama hates Jews.

My neck is sore from all the head shaking.
