  1. Jewish weekly Atlanta Jewish Times stated recently:

    Could anyone imagine if it was a Muslim periodical saying anything remotely similar?

    What is the response of the authorities?

    I can all but guarantee that the editor and everyone associated with the periodical would already be in Gitmo right now if they were Muslim.

    Amazing. The editor issues an apology and the most anyone is calling for is for him to lose his editing position.

    i was watching "The Daily Show" and they were discussing how the rich in the USA run ramshod over laws and change things in their favor, even if it was against the law previously, the just change the laws, the lower their tax rates for themselves and increase it for others

    why am i saying this? because this system, this western driven system is blatantly unfair, not only to muslims, but even to their own underlings

    this is a situation in the world today, and its not only against muslims, they will sell their mothers, their nations, anything to gain a profit

    israel is presently a strong influential force in the western world, and it will use that force for its own advantage without caring about anything or anyone else

    the secret service will not do anything, because israel has that type of clout, and you are right, if a muslim said such a thing, it would be front page news on all global media outlets

    its a reality that we have to come to terms with, life is not fair, however, we have Allah on our side, so we need to return to our Lord, with a strong commitment and work towards that goal

    STORY HIGHLIGHTS

    • The column appeared in the Atlanta Jewish Times
    • U.S. Jewish groups slammed the column
    • The writer reportedly issued an apology


    Atlanta, Georgia (CNN) -- The U.S. Secret Service is looking into a controversial column by an Atlanta Jewish newspaper publisher that mulled the assassination of an American president.
    Andrew Adler, owner and publisher of the Atlanta Jewish Times, wrote a January 13 column about the threat of Iran to Israel. He posed three options for the Jewish state to counter the Iranian regime.
    One of them called for a "hit on a president in order to preserve Israel's existence."
    "Give the go-ahead for U.S. based Mossad agents to take out a president deemed unfriendly to Israel in order for the current vice president to take his place and forcefully dictate that the United States' policy includes its helping the Jewish state obliterate its enemies."
    U.S. Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie told CNN Saturday, "We are aware of it. We are taking the appropriate investigative steps."
    Adler could not be reached for comment, but the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, a wire service for Jewish newspapers in North America, quoted Adler on Friday as saying "I very much regret it. I wish I hadn't made reference to it at all."
    Adler -- who said he's gotten a lot of flak for the column -- said he would issue an apology in the next edition of the weekly newspaper, the JTA reported.
    The column, entitled "What would you do?" doesn't mention President Barack Obama's name, but U.S. Jewish groups that strongly denounced the column read the words as a reference to Obama himself. The column also refers to the administration's "never ending 'Alice in Wonderland' belief that diplomacy is the answer," an apparent dig at the Obama White House's foreign policy efforts at dialogue with such countries as Iran.
    "The suggestion by anyone, in this case a Jewish newspaper publisher, that Israel should consider assassinating President Obama is shocking beyond belief," said Dov Wilker, director of the American Jewish Committee in Atlanta.
    "While we acknowledge Mr. Adler's apology, we are flabbergasted that he could ever say such a thing in the first place. How could he even conceive of such a twisted idea?" said Wilker. "Mr. Adler surely owes immediate apologies to President Obama, as well as to the State of Israel and his readership, the Atlanta Jewish community."
    The White House declined to comment Saturday on the column.
    Abraham H. Foxman, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League, said Adler's "lack of judgment as a publisher, editor and columnist raises serious questions as to whether he's fit to run a newspaper."
    "There is absolutely no excuse, no justification, no rationalization for this kind of rhetoric. It doesn't even belong in fiction. These are irresponsible and extremist words. It is outrageous and beyond the pale. An apology cannot possibly repair the damage.
    "Irresponsible rhetoric metastasizes into more dangerous rhetoric. The ideas expressed in Mr. Adler's column reflect some of the extremist rhetoric that unfortunately exists -- even in some segments of our community -- that maliciously labels President Obama as an 'enemy of the Jewish people,'" Foxman said.
    Simon Wiesenthal Center associate dean Rabbi Abraham Cooper called the remarks "irresponsible and reprehensible" and said they "must be publicly condemned by Jewish leaders across the ideological and political spectrum."
    "We take small comfort from the apology — what a shanda!" Cooper said, using the Yiddish word for something shameful or scandalous.
    JTA also quoted Ophir Aviran, the Israeli consul-general in Atlanta as saying he was "appalled at this deranged and morally repugnant assertion."
    The Atlanta Jewish Times, a weekly focused on the Atlanta Jewish community, was founded in 1925 as the Southern Israelite.

    Lets not forget that america is, by law, governed by talmudic law or at the very least is its stated policy:

    Public Law 102--14 (H.J. Res. 104): March 20, 1991

    Education Day, USA Proclamation

    Joint Resolution to designate March 26, 1991 as "Education Day, USA"

    Whereas Congress recognizes the historical tradition of ethical values and principles which are the basis of civilized society and upon which our great Nation was founded;
    Whereas these ethical values and principles have been the bedrock of society from the dawn of civilization, when they were known as the Seven Noahide Laws;



    Whereas without these ethical values and principles the edifice of civilization stands in serious peril of returning to chaos;


    Whereas society is profoundly concerned with the recent weakening of these principles that has resulted in crises that beleaguer and threaten the fabric of civilized society;



    Whereas the justified preoccupation with these crises must not let the citizens of this Nation lose sight of their responsibility to transmit these ethical values from our distinguished past to the generations of the future;



    Whereas the Lubavitch movement has fostered and promoted these ethical values and principles throughout the world;
    Whereas Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, leader of the Lubavitch movement, is universally respected and revered and his eighty-ninth birthday falls on March 26, 1991;



    Whereas in tribute to this great spiritual leader, "the rebbe", this, his ninetieth year will be seen as one of "education and giving", the year in which we turn to education and charity to return the world to the moral and ethical values contained in the Seven Noahide Laws; and



    Whereas this will be reflected in an international scroll of honor signed by the President of the United States and other heads of state:

    Now, therefore be it


    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That March 26, 1991, the start of the ninetieth year of Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, leader of the worldwide Lubavitch movement, is designated as "Education Day. U.S.A.". The President is requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the people of the United States to observe such day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.
    Approved March 20, 1991.
