Newspaper Editor Suggests Israel Assassinate Obama

'diplomacy is so boring'

Andrew Adler, who owns an Atlanta-based newspaper called the Atlanta Jewish Times, wrote an op-ed last week in which he theorized on what Israel could do about its relationship with the United States vis à vis Iran. As Adler sees it, Israel has three options, and one of them involves “ordering a hit on” President Obama. Uhhhh.

Adler, whose newspaper has a circulation of about 3,500 (and a staff of merely five), is basically suggesting that assassinating Obama has to be something that Israel is considering, because it would allow it to put its foot down to an allegedly weaker vice president. The first two options: bomb Iran, or bomb Hamas and Hezbollah. Three:

Three, 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.

Order a hit on a president in order to preserve Israel’s existence. Think about it. If I have thought of this Tom Clancy-type scenario, don’t you think that this almost unfathomable idea has been discussed in Israel’s most inner circles?

That’s not really the point? Gawker got on the phone with Adler to find out what the hell he is talking about. Apparently, he sounded “nervous” and backtracked with the following:

I was hoping to make clear that it’s unspeakable—god forbid this would ever happen.

See, the thing about unspeakable things is — TOO LATE.

In the end Adler tried to frame his Tom Clancy fan fiction as basically a ploy for more attention. Well, in that case. [Gawker]

        Actually, while it is unspeakable apparently it was perfectly writable.

        Last night Ole Newt called a fairly straightforward question despicable – Daffy Duck style. What word does he have for this debacle?

    What the fuck? Seriously, what the fuck? And how the fuck is Obama "eemed unfriendly to Israel", like all US presidents he goes overboard in Israel's interests. But then the goal of having Israel "obliterate its enemies" shows that that is one sick, sick man.

        Isarel is not a friend to the US… they are blood suckers. They will only claim us as an ally as long as we can provide them cover for their terrorist acts, such as killing innocent scientist and provoking wars that will kill hundreds of thousands of men, women and children.

        The time is approaching to boycott these selfish hypocrites, who are starving Palestinians and stealing their land. It's just a stones throw from claiming to be God's chosen people to thinking of thmeselves as the super race.

        • Fukui_sanYesOta

          As much as I often feel distaste for the policies of the Israeli government, your use of "They" there – when you contextualize with "God's chosen people" – strikes me as somewhat broad-brush

          edit: oh, you were quoting Smithboy. Well, applies equally to him, I suppose.

          Sometimes it's hard to separate "Israelis can be fucking assholes" from "Jews can be fucking assholes" when reading comments on this here intertube thingy.

          • real_dc_native

            You're right. There are many fine people in Israel who are just as frustrated with their government and politicians as we are with ours.

          • http://whatisawatthedevolution.blogspot.com imissopus

            Also many fine Jews in other countries, including America, who are pretty damn upset with the Israeli government and the right-wingers over there who are leading the place down its current path. Smithboy can fuck off.

            Totally off topic but I love your avatar and name. I'm 40 years old and still miss Opus. Time to get the Meadow Party fired up!

            Ha, thanks. I'm 37 and was obsessed with Bloom County as a kid. I don't see that a dead cat could be a worse candidate than any of the current Republicans. Hell, it would be a giant improvement.

          • tribbzthesquidz

            Same here. Can't say enough about Berke. Totally changed my outlook as a kid. Reagan sucks!

          • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/ Chet Kincaid

            'Twas Doonesbury for me, as a teen of the '70s. (I'm 51.) But the '80s were definitely the last great golden age of the newspaper strip, with Bloom County, Calvin, The Far Side and early Dilbert.

          • SorosBot

            The last great comic strip was The Boondocks, and I'm still sad McGruder dropped it for the cartoon, which doesn't have the timeliness of the comic. Those post-9/11 strips were great – and it was comforting to know that, despite what the media (not to mention my parents) was telling me, I and my then girlfriend were not the only ones who didn't trust what Bush was doing at the time.

          • DrOzarkZ.Hellbender

            While they almost never touch on politics, there are a couple of strips that I'm very taken with: Mark Tatulli's "Lio," which is what might result if you crossbred Calvin & Hobbes with Charles Addams' weirdest stuff, and Richard Thompson's "Cul de Sac," which is just gorgeously silly. Both strips are also occasionally get pretty meta… Tatulli did the best C&H sendup I've ever seen, and one of the kids in "Cul de Sac" is an obsessive fan of the early-20th century comic "Little Neuro." Also, as a dad, I just plain appreciate this one, even if it has nothing do do with "meta."

            Nice essay on "Lio" here; I can't really disagree with the conclusion:

            The problem is, where Calvin had a philosophy, Lio has a shtick. It doesn’t hold up as well under close scrutiny, or with prolonged exposure. It’s funny, sure. But Lio is just not as good as Calvin and Hobbes.

            Then again — what is?

            EDIT: And then, of course, there's always "Pearls Before Swine."

          • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/ Chet Kincaid

            I don't read The Boondocks, but that sounds similar to what happened with "Life In Hell", which I forgot to mention in the Honor Roll of the '80s-'90s. Groening was on an incredible roll, but as soon as The Simpsons became a hit, he just started xeroxing the same drawing of Akbar and Jeff for 20 years.

          • doloras

            I can't stand Israel's self-righteous colonialist mentality and support BDS and a one-state solution, but calling them "bloodsuckers" strays right over the edge into anti-Semitic tropes, I agree.

            Anti-semites, fuck off. Palestine doesn't want your help.

          • DrOzarkZ.Hellbender

            Also, I'll have you know that we only steal weak, sickly Christian infants to grind into our Passover matzos. Think of it as a way of culling the herd.

          • ThundercatHo

      • SorosBot

        I believe Jackson was referring to the Native Americans, who he was committing genocide against. And apparently Newt thought that was a positive; fuck.

        • Sue4466

          Well, Newt is willing to trade in racism for electoral votes, why not genocide? If it gets the redneck SC vote (like there's any other), totally worth it!

            I don't think our Worthly Woket Skum ever vote Repuglyklan, and I don't have any friends from that state, but whoever gave us Stephen was doing *some*thing right.

            Did you see his performance with Cain yesterday? The choir kids behind him started out with the usual bored teenage expressions, and by the time he was done, it was all they could do to keep from LOLz. I think he's doing a great thing, and educating a new generation of voters. Top notch performance art, guerilla theater.

        • MissTaken

        • Fukui_sanYesOta

          The inveterate shit-flingers over at HuffPo have a piece about how Doctor Historian fucked up and was thinking of Stonewall Jackson rather than Andrew Jackson. Which, considering Stonewall was a Confederate, rather changes the meaning of the quote.

          Must admit, I've read a couple of bios of AJ and couldn't recall anything similar. Still, I don't get paid $1.6M to be an historian.

          He was a fucking asshole to the Native Americans though.

          • SorosBot

            Ignorant fuck-up, or intentional 'mistake" to hide a dog-whistle? Either is possible with Newt.

          • Fukui_sanYesOta

            Difficult to tell, yeah. Although given the historical knowledge of the target audience I expect any attempt at dogwhistling would have lurched over their pointy heads.

          • DrOzarkZ.Hellbender

    • Tundra Grifter

      Not long ago Media Matters for America pointed out a major Israeli government leader said relations between the two nations have never been better.

      Much of what Mr. Obama has said mirrors the views of the major political party over there.

      It's the right wing nutz who have been telling lies about Mr. Obama (again). And now we can see one of the terrible results.

          • slithytoves

            I kissey his furry noze 100 times a day (even though I have the asmaz, too, and am probably allergic to him), and I will kissey him for you – he sez thx for the xtra kisseys today. Scared the bejeezus out of me when he started hacking like a four pack a day emphysema patient! Hope your Zingiber is okay – he's the spitting image of my Kilgore Trout! Past tense? Do you not have the big boy any more? Cats are people, too. Better people.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            Yeah, I'm allergic to all my little rescues, but who can resist those sweet furry faces? Especially now, since I can not has teh dogz. (Too gimpy to walk a dog as it needs to be walked.)

            Zingiber is no longer with us, to my great sorrow. It's been just over a year and I can't believe I still miss him so fucking much. Twenty-three pounds of sweet, red, hairy love. His brother lives with us still, but his days are drawing to a close, too.

            Poor Mr. Happy! I have to keep the house vacuumed thoroughly for the kittehs. I try but don't always succeed in giving them the standard of cleanliness they would prefer. For little pigs in fur suits, they sure need a lot of cleaning up after. Kilgore Trout, eh? A fellow Vonnegut fan. I'm waiting for another big fat ginger kitty to come into my life someday. I might just name him Kilgore Trout, come to think of it.

          • slithytoves

            So sorry about Zingiber. I lost my Piper (a grey Maine Coon) two years ago, which eventually led to getting Mr. Happy, another Maine Coon. I still dream about her. I cried harder when I had to have her put to sleep than at any funeral I had attended in 20 years. She was sweet, and she was without sin.

            Careful about the naming; Kilgore Trout turned out to be as much of a curmudgeon as his namesake. He always wants love, but he tends to bite when you give it to him!! That's sort of endearing, in a weird way. Very Vonnegut. You might want to try Mr. Rosewater, instead. :)

    Let's put it this way, Mr. Adler. It almost surely hasn't.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Oh sure — to some people, Israel assassinating the president in order to gain a more acceptable ally (just like they do to Fatah and Hamas, right? How's that working out?) seems like a piece of sheer idiocy that should be discarded without further consideration. On the other hand, it's less radical than Ronald Reagan's hope that we would be invaded by aliens so that we'd recognize our common humanity is greater than our differences.

    So remember — one man's complete idiocy is another man's right-wing idea machine. Like invading Iraq, having a 9% flat tax and bringing back orphanages, you just never know what kinda awesome shit is gonna come out of it.

    For the sake of ushering in an "allegedly weaker" vice prez it still reveals a major oversight: has this goofus taken any time to consider the wrath that'd be unleashed by our FLOTUS, who, lovely and amazing as she is, also commands a somewhat more assertive approach than her husband & Joe combined?

            OK. Where was I? Oh, yeah…

            I flipped the safety off my M-1 rifle and cautiously approached the door to the building ahead of me. I went up the stairs and heard loud moans coming from somewhere down the hall. I crept up to each door in turn, hoping to discover the source of the moans. As I approached the last door, I heard the unmistakeable sound of flesh slapping against flesh and a woman half-shouting, half-moaning instructions in German to someone. I racked my brain trying to remember my high school German, but her moaning drowned out the umlauts. I stepped back and kicked open the door. There, lying nude atop the dining room table was a beautiful woman lying naked with her legs in the air, a man half-wearing the uniform of an SS major was between her legs, thrusting away and oblivious to the fact that my weapon was pointed at his head. I raised my rifle so it was pointed at his other head and shouted, "Hande hoch!" The man continued to grind away and said, "Ein moment, bitte."

    It's just getting harder and harder to plant subconscious wishes in the national brain without someone calling you up and expecting you to explain them.

    With a nigger President, nothing's off the table!

    • Limeylizzie

      It truly seems as if the right-wing feels it has carte-blanche to say anything because , well, he is a black man, so the rules are different.

      • DrOzarkZ.Hellbender

        I think many of them believe* that as long as they stop just short of actually SAYING "nigger," it's magically not racist.
        __________

        * or maybe not even that. Just before the '08 election another teacher at the for-profit college I worked at said of Obama, "He's just an uppity nigger. And I am NOT racist!" **

        ** No, he was not being satirical. He was dead serious.

        • Limeylizzie

          Dear God, where do you live? I shouldn't still be stunned by this crap, but I confess it still shocks me.

          • DrOzarkZ.Hellbender

            Boise Goddamned Idaho, sadly enough. I don't know whether he was from here originally, or what, but after the election, there were also students who chuckled appreciatively when one guy in a class said, "man, I hope somebody just…" and then pantomimed cocking and firing a bolt-action rifle. I didn't let it pass without comment, but of course, he was "only joking."

            After 11 years here, Idaho still makes me nostalgic for the diversity and tolerance of Arizona.

            Living in Harlem I had a very different experience, my lovely upstairs neighbour, who is about 80 was weeping when he was elected and said that she was terrified that he would get shot.

          • DrOzarkZ.Hellbender

            No doubt she had someone like one of my students in mind…

            I live in a mostly not-brown area that borders on a mostly-black/brown area, and all my friends from various minority groups have the same reaction as your neighbour. They're terrified, and have been since that day. Too many black and brown people assassinated IN this country and by people FROM this country. The Black Panthers are still a current memory for many people who live here.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            Hey, I'm one of THOSE PEOPLE, if you know what I mean, and I'm constantly shocked and horrified by the level of hate. And imagine being GAY as well as brown. OK, I can kinda hide the gay part, but not too well.

            Hey, I live in left-wing Portland, and I had an idiot cow-irker say to me, completely seriously, "I don't like his morals".

          Sickening.

    • http://whatisawatthedevolution.blogspot.com imissopus

      Ahem. As a Jewish American, I'm sure Mr. Adler prefers to use the word schvartze.

      • finallyhappy

        Someone actually used that word to me recently to describe the president- i got up and walked away.

        • http://whatisawatthedevolution.blogspot.com imissopus

          I was so used to hearing it for much of my life that I was probably in my thirties before it occurred to me that it really is the Yiddish version of "nigger" and doesn't sound better just because you say it with a funny accent.

        • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

          Thank you. Somebody needs to let older folks know this is not acceptable. Jeez, I'm an Oldz myself, and I've never done any of this shit.

    • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

      It sure feels that way, don't it? So many of us thoroughly disliked Bush, yet I don't recall hearing people say things about taking out hunting licenses on him, or bloodying his nose, or killing him, widowing his wife, orphaning his children. And there was a lot of RWNJ hatred for Clinton, but other than some schmuck warning him not to visit the South, I don't remember this level of batshit insanity, either.

      • tessiee

        They never shut up complaining about everything Clinton did, didn't do, said, didn't say, from the moment he took the oath of office — but it was nowhere near *this* kind of ugliness.

        • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

          Other than that one remark about not showing up on any Southern military bases, I don't recall anyone threatening his life or his wife and child publicly. I mean, there's always nuts who develop a fixation on a person, and not a lot we can do to stop that, but not public figures. This guy might not be a Pulitzer-prize-winning publisher, but still, he's a middle-class average kinda dude, not some raving wingnut. And *he's* saying stuff like this.

        • chicken_thief

          I'm not so sure about that. There is the whole Vince Foster and "trail of death" thing. The Pretender in Chief is routinely accused of treason and stupidity, but I don't recall any accusations of murder. And then of course, 9/11 was all Clinton's fault, too.

      • tessiee

        "hatred for Clinton, but other than some schmuck warning him not to visit the South"

        That was Jesse Helms, the beloved and esteemed Senator from North Carolna for two hundred and thirty-seven years, and reactionary racist schmuck extraordinaire.

  • http://whatisawatthedevolution.blogspot.com imissopus

    I'm even more terrified about what the comments over at Salon will look like if Glenn Greenwald gets hold of this.

  • horsedreamer_1

    I prefer the Atlanta Jewish Times when they're trumpeting Shawn Green as the "Hammerin' Heeb".

    Alas, not dead yet, but I'm really looking forward to that happy day.

    Jesus…the guy also references the "Kobayashi Maru scenario."

    I'm sorry, sir, you do NOT get to make Star Trek references like decent patriotic nerds.

      No, no he doesn't. Beam him down in a red shirt.

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

        Ha! I want those red shirts to give out to people who annoy me.

        OT: My Xmas present for this year: a ST (Original) Lunch Box. I have waited 50 years for this thing. (OK, 40-some).

        • DrOzarkZ.Hellbender

          Oooooooooooooh. This one?

          I am jealous. Had a friend who had one of those. I had a really boring Hot Wheels lunchbox myself

          Of course, all the really cool kids had the Edwin Newman lunchbox.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            No, man, those are, like collectors' items. But mine has Lt. Uhura, which is totally the coolest.

  • Jadetiger79

    You know, over time my opinion of Israel has changed. As I was growing up, it was like: WE MUST SUPPORT ISRAEL AT ALL COSTS AFTER ALL, THAT'S WHERE JESUS CAME FROM. Now that I am older and can see all sides, I am finding my support for Israel diminishing to nothing. I see them as being deceitful bullies who are running around writing karma checks they can't possibly cash.

  • Negropolis

    "Atlanta Jewish Times"

    Is that anything like the Fargo African American Picayune or the Sharia Scranton Islamic Daily?

    • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

      Sure sounds like it, don't it?

    • tessiee

      I think Atlanta is one of those Old South cities like Charleston SC, Savannah GA, and Charlotte NC, that actually has a fair sized Jewish community.

  • Negropolis

    Time that Ari gets a visit from the Obama administration's Shalom Team Six.

    Putz, please.

  • Troglodeity

    Is this some of that "grandiose thinking" Newt was talking about?

  • bobbysneakers1

    y'know, every time an OWS activist erects a tent in a public place she gets sent to guantanamo, while I've counted no fewer than 6 commentators, including 2 republican candidates, who've suggested the president should be assassinated.

  • fitley

    A Jewish racist homicidal white trash hillbilly. Wow living in Atlanta can really have an effect on a person.

    STONE HIM~!!!!

    One of the best movies ever, and one of the funniest scenes in any movie ever.

  • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

    Love the beards.

  • C_R_Eature

    I flat-out Love this movie and the sight of John Cleese in that ridiculous priest's costume leaping about in fury gets me every time.
    Also:

    Priest: "Who threw that stone! Come on!?"
    Crowd: *Falsetto* "She did! She did!" *switching to fake basso* "He did! He did!"

  • Jadetiger79

    I did the same thing. The best I can piece it together is, maybe he was indulging in some 'blue skying'?

  • finallyhappy

    So I'm guessing Tzom Gedaliah means nothing to you either?(I hear it doesn't mean much to most people) I had a co-worker tell me Hoshana Rabbah wasn't real because she knew a Jewish guy who never heard of it. Of course, i am using the computer on Shabbat so ….
