Beware of the Jews

The fairly new CST blog reports on an interesting article in the Independent, following President Obama’s big speech to the Muslim world on June 4. In the article, David Usborne excels in dramatic speculations about how Obama’s speech risks the ire of the “Jewish lobby” in Washington DC, and the CST analysis is recommended reading.

Usborne’s article in full can be read here.

You might have thought that was a bit rich, but everything is relative. Also hyperbole about Jewish power. Usborne’s tirade fades next to the pronouncements of Nael Touqan, the spokesman for the Swedish-Palestinian National Association. He was asked by Swedish Radio 1 to comment the speech on June 4, and said:

This was a perfect speech. […] I see this as a completely new American policy, and it’s a very positive policy. But I think that Obama risks his life with this speech. […] Israel is going to murder him.

Just so you know.

The interview with Touqan can be found here.
