an interview conducted by Chicago mag.com with a Harvard Law School, named Joel Pollack, who is currently employed as the Editor-in-chief at Breitbart.com.
Here it is in context:
CF: When we will have the first Jewish president?
JP: I think if Sarah Palin runs, she’ll be the first Jewish president.
JP: Sarah Palin is treated as Jews have been treated for generations: no matter what she does, she’s wrong. She’s either too religious or not religious enough; she’s a housewife who can’t function as governor, or she’s the governor who doesn’t take care of her domestic duties. All the things are thrown at her in the same way that Jews were targeted. She’s identified herself [with Israel] and has shown empathy for the things that the Jewish community cares about in a way that I think has yet to achieve the right recognition. She sent out a picture recently to supporters—not Jewish supporters, but her general supporters—and it’s a picture of her in front of the Statue of Liberty and she’s wearing a Jewish star. Maybe not since the Puritans founded America and gave biblical names to each other has there ever been such a positive identification with Jewish symbolism, so I like to joke that Sarah Palin will be the first Jewish president.
Now keep in mind that this is from a Jewish American Harvard graduate. You cannot honestly define him as an inbred paint chip eater, so what the hell?
How could somebody who presents themselves as a strong supporter of Israel, and who claims to take his Jewish faith seriously, EVER compare Sarah Palin being criticized for being an ignorant, venal fame whore to the historic suffering of the Jewish people?
And he bases much of that on the fact that she wears the Star of David in public?
That is a level of cognitive dissonance the likes of which I have rarely seen before.
Does this moron not realize that in Palin's Domiononist world view, that Israel HAS to exist so that it can lose a war where two thirds of its people must be slaughtered?
Nothing can or will be done by Christians to save Israel’s Jews from this disaster, for all of the Christians will have been removed from this world three and a half years prior to the beginning of this 42-month period of tribulation. (The total period of seven years is interpreted as the fulfillment of the seventieth week of Daniel [Dan. 9:27].)
In order for most of today’s Christians to escape physical death, two-thirds of the Jews in Israel must perish, soon. This is the grim prophetic trade-off that fundamentalists rarely discuss publicly, but which is the central motivation in the movement’s support for Israel. It should be clear why they believe that Israel must be defended at all costs by the West. If Israel were militarily removed from history prior to the Rapture, then the strongest case for Christians’ imminent escape from death would have to be abandoned. This would mean the indefinite delay of the Rapture. The fundamentalist movement thrives on the doctrine of the imminent Rapture, not the indefinitely postponed Rapture.
And what exactly does this massive embarrassment to the Jewish faith, Harvard Law School, and the American people DO for Breitbart?
CF: What are you up to recently at Breitbart?
JP: The examination of [Joe McGinniss’s] new book about Sarah Palin. We released an email that indicates McGinniss knew there was no factual evidence for some of the most sensational things he was saying, and he was frantically trying to reach out to left-wing bloggers to try to see if they had any evidence he could include in the book to back up what he was saying.
This guy's parents scrimped and saved to send him to Harvard Law School and now he spends his time purposefully misunderstanding and misrepresenting an e-mail from Joe McGinniss to yours truly?
You know that may be one of the saddest things I have ever heard.
