Solution for Israel: ‘Take out’ Obama?

“Damn” is about all you can say about something like this.

“Damn fool” would be the longer version.

Andrew Adler, owner/publisher of the Atlanta Jewish Times, wrote a column earlier this month musing about the options available to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. As Adler saw it, Netanyahu has three choices:

One, launch a pre-emptive strike against Hamas and Hezbollah.

Two, launch an attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities.

Three, I’ll let you read for yourself:

obamahit

Adler now says he didn’t really mean it, and is sorry.

Damn fool.

Jay:

A couple of points:

1) There are direct threats (I am going to do so and so), there are indirect threats (I am going to such and such “if”) and then there is “free speech” ……….. which if often not only very borderline but also offensive to the very freedoms we stand for.

2) Alder should apologize, should be fired (in my opinion) and will “probably” get a visit from the Secret Service.

3) That said, “once upon a time” there were some bumper stickers printed that said “I Wish Someone Would Shoot the *********” (I won’t even print the Constitutional position here). However, if one looked very closely, under that printing in much smaller letters it said, “With a Camera”.

Prosection was declined as it was “free speech”. The gentleman involved was interviewed and agreed to voluntarily cease and desist after it was explained to him that some “nut case” could read and see that as a message from God.

Because of Bozo’s arrogant attitude toward the Jews, Israel feels pretty alone right now. They are surrounded on all sides but one with those who would have their head on a pole. I don’t favor taking out our President. A very bad decision by a desperate people. Guess he feels like Israel has one more enemy now…. if not an enemy, then someone who will look the other way. Not sure what survival means to them but I know what it would mean for me.

Scout seems to have missed a few “threats”…. there is also “Someone should do this..[and someone does]” which may be incitement and advocating unlaws action and beyond the confines of free speech. Perhaps Scout should review some of the KKK cases on the subject. There are also a few recent abortion protestor cases where the court found, for example, that a website that listed and collected names and personal information on abortion providers and others was NOT free speech but was a true threat to bodily harm, assault or kill one or more of the [providers].”

And slightly off-topic: A judge has ordered President Barack Obama to appear in court in Atlanta for a hearing on a complaint that says Obama isn’t a natural-born citizen and can’t be president The President is not above the law or being forced to appear in court, but there is an entire body of law about when it is appropriate to subpoena an official like the President. I cannot fathom that the “standards” have been truly met (and I admit that is a gut opinion and I have NOT read the briefs or other documents so I am ignorant of the alleged facts in this specific case). Imagine if the President had to appear in every court hearing every time some nut like Orily decides to subpoena him. While I realize many of the conned birthers will cheer, it is foolish. Why I am sure we’ll hear about the cost of the President traveling to GA to appear for this matter just like we hear about vacation waste.

Scout, since we are talking the 1st Amendment, often there is not law but a body of law based on judicial decisions and there have been cases against abortion groups and the KKK based on exceeding the limits of free speech by inciting others to act. It may take more than repeatedly saying Tiller the Baby Killer (morally wrong but free speech, however stupid) but it is also clear that holding a sign that says “Elton John must die” and making public comments that John descrated the image of Jesus Christ and filming a video standing with that sign in front of Elton John’s home seems to exceed the standards of “free speech.”

And yes Scout we know you have new demands after your prior Box 23/26 birth certificate demands. :roll: I want to see all of Romneys financial and personal information, Cain’s harrassment reports, Trump’s results as he reported that his investigators were in Hawaii and “you won’t believe what they are finding” and all sorts of other things.

@ Kayaker: “It is a shame that it has come to this. A desperate people who feel that no one is listening.”

Absolute rubbish !!! Who are the “desperate people” you refer to who feel they are not being listened to?

Obama IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. He is NOT the president of ANY OTHER FOREIGN COUNTRY. THE US chooses to aid troubled areas of the world solely on benevolence, charity, and also because we believe as Americans, that it is the right thing to do. We don’t have to, unless we have a constitutionally approved treaty to do so. But we help almost all countries at will regardless!

By your logic, should Mexican-Americans call for the harming of a sitting US president because he is not rescuing their country from the drug lords?

Should Black-Americans call for the harming of a sitting US president because he is not speedily rescuing the Ivory Coast from civil wars?

Should Iranian-Americans call for the harming of a sitting US president because he did not readily back them up when they tried to rise up against their tyrannical rulers?

ALL of the peoples in these countries are “desperate people” who feel they are not being heard. Should they call for harming a sitting US president?

Scout, whether they prosecute Alder or not is within the prosecutorial discretion. Alder’s statements were beyond stupid. Except for a few crazies, I anticipated that most Americans would be highly offended. But I don’t think that Adler’s comment is going to incite a foreign government to act. While I believe myself that they were an indirect threat and a foolish and unlikely call to action, prosecution is likely to incite more stupidity rather than to deter. Make that same type of call to action at a protest outside of a locale where the President is speaking to a group exercising their 2d amendment rights and you have a very actionable and dangerous situation that exeeds free speech.

I don’t recall much furor regarding all of the death threats against Bush

Real thin on actual evidence of a failure to prosecute or to have “furor”… in fact, actual evidence suggests otherwise:

http://www.usatoday.com/tech/news/2006-10-16-bush-myspace_x.htm

Also from Wikipedia In July 2003, the Los Angeles Times published a Sunday editorial cartoon by conservative Michael Ramirez that depicted a man pointing a gun at President Bush’s head; it was a takeoff on the 1969 Pulitzer Prize-winning photo by Eddie Adams that showed Vietnamese general Nguyễn Ngọc Loan executing a Viet Cong prisoner at point-blank range. The cartoon prompted a visit from the Secret Service, but no charges were filed.[16][17] In 2005, a teacher instructed her senior civics and economics class to take photographs to illustrate the rights contained in the United States Bill of Rights. One student “had taken a photo of George Bush out of a magazine and tacked the picture to a wall with a red thumb tack through his head. Then he made a thumb’s-down sign with his own hand next to the President’s picture, and he had a photo taken of that, and he pasted it on a poster.” A Wal-Mart photo department employee reported it to police, and the Secret Service investigated. In 2007, Purdue University student Vikram Buddhi was convicted of posting messages to Yahoo Finance criticizing the Iraq War and stating, “Call for the assassination of GW Bush” and “Rape and Kill Laura Bush.” The defense had argued that the defendant never explicitly threatened anyone. He was located despite efforts to disguise where the messages were coming from.[19]

In September 2009 the Secret Service investigated Facebook polls that asked whether President Barack Obama should be assassinated.[20] Some question has arisen as to how to handle Facebook groups such as “LETS KILL BUSH WITH SHOES” (a reference to the 2008 Muntadhar al-Zaidi shoe incident) which had 484 members as of September 2009;[21] similar issues have arisen on MySpace.[22] Tweets have come under Secret Service investigation, including ones that said “ASSASSINATION! America, we survived the Assassinations and Lincoln & Kennedy. We’ll surely get over a bullet to Barrack [sic] Obama’s head,” and “The next American with a Clear Shot should drop Obama like a bad habit. 4get Blacks or his claims to b[e] Black. Turn on Barack Obama.”[23] The former tweet was marked “#tlot,” a reference to “Top Libertarians on Twitter”.[24] In 2010, a man was charged for posting a poem entitled “The Sniper” about the President’s assassination on a white supremacist website.

Does this have to come to some absurd “Bush” derangement syndrome claim?

Adler doesn’t even deserve an implied facepalm pic. That’s one dumbass..

In his column, Adler speculated Israel was already considering such an attack on Obama.

Adler rhetorically asked, “How far would you go to save a nation comprised of seven million lives … Jews, Christians and Arabs alike? You have got to believe, like I do, that all options are on the table.”

In an interview with Gawker.com, Adler denied that he was advocating an assassination attempt against Obama.

“Of course not,” he told the website. He also said he didn’t believe Israel was considering one nor should it be considered as an option. Adler said he plans publish an apology.

Dumbass contradicted himself within a week’s time. He speculates in a column and then says that he doesn’t think they’re considering it a week later. I’m pretty sure that change of mind came after the talk with the guys in the black suits.

taxpayer- In other words, you talk big and then follow behind the one carrying the big stick. I know your kind.

I guess that’s why I’ve spent almost 2/3rds of my life in the Army. But keep watching CNN and waving your flag. I’m sure your a real patriot.

Vote obama. Free money for everyone!

obama’s plan to stop illegal immigration: make the dollar worth a peso then everyone will move Mexico for the good jobs.

JKL — so “After getting re-elected, obama could be considered one of those third world dictators we are so fond of getting rid of these days, is about defeating him in an election? I don’t find your spin and back-pedal credible.

As for Bush, I said then as I do now that any threats were inappropriate and should have been investigated and prosecuted as necessary. And you may want to discuss with Scout the issues regarding the right to free speech and what constitutes a threat. It seems however that your position on threats changes based on whether the R or D after the President’s name.

Had a boss who liked to listen too it. Nothing funner than listening to hate speech all night (amizing how profound Limbaugh is in that respect that “the left doesn’t get it”). I don’t know if it was nicer to hear our President refered to as “dumb a$$” or “chucklenuts” for hours on end. I guess it’s a shame we couldn’t throw the race card for anyone who disagreed with us.

I stayed at a Holiday Inn. Further, your claimed service, whether truthful or not, is of no consequence with regards to my right to confront you and your statements. After all, even military personnel have been tried and convicted of treason. I’m not sure you are a real “patriot”.

Limbaugh does come across as quite the racist to me too based on the few clips I’ve heard from the tool. One of many reasons why I do not choose to listen to him.

Just saying “pot meet kettle”. The left were hi fiving each other over get rid of Bush comments. Now some obscure guy in Israel says the same thing and your angry? Hipocracy much?

I unfortunately believe obama will be re-elected. Unlike you, I can’t be proud of electing someone based on class envy, race, and the promise of more welfare.

Which makes it even funnier. (I doubt if I get to listen to him an hour a week, but he’s surprisingly accurate on some things). He will litterly say “this is the line I quoting from someone else that the media will take out of context” and the next day it’s all over the news. He truly is “show prep” for the media.

“I just got word that President Obama’s records are kept at his school too, just like yours, and that his education was also paid for with US currency, just like yours. So, you two are not that different in that regard after all. You should be happy or relieved at least. I know I am.”

Ah, but I paid mine from my job income or the VA check I deposit into my account.

The question is what was the original “source” of his payments ? Those were pretty expensive schools for seven years.

Did he apply for student aid? Was it received?

I have it on good authority that he got enough to pay all that was due and that was good enough for the school. Now if he had borrowed tens of thousands and not paid it back then that would be so wrong. Do you think that’s what he did, Scout!! Maybe he makes enough now to get caught up on his bills. Let’s hope so because the last thing we need is an indebted president of these United States.

Really! I feel like I know more about this one than even the last one myself. I can’t even recall seeing Bush’s birth certificate much less his service records or who paid for his education, etc. Although I don’t recall him graduating Magna Cum Laude, do you.
