With friends like Clinton, Israelis don't need enemies.

With friends like Clinton, Israel doesn't need enemies. According to a new report from the US State department, Anti-Semitism is on the rise. Nick Mackenzie writes in the religious intelligence report. "Today, more than 60 years after the Holocaust, anti-Semitism is not just a fact of history, it is a current event." The report, presented to Congress on March 13, read. "The distinguishing feature of the new anti-Semitism is criticism of Israeli policy that -- whether intentionally or unintentionally -- has the effect of promoting prejudice against all Jews by demonizing Israel and Israelis and attributing Israel's perceived faults to its Jewish character," the report stated.

The anti-Semitic attacks continue to occur in Europe and the United States. Just recently two Jewish commuters were beaten up in the subway for wishing happy Hanukkah. A few years ago a council person referred to the other as "you people" in the Dallas City Hall as if the "you Jewish people" are causing the trouble. Every now and then I read disgusting anti-Semitic comments in stray emails I get from groups all across the world. Not from Muslims but from every one else.

There is a growing perception that Israeli Lobby buys and manipulates our law makers to do things that are detrimental to American interests as well as to peace for Israel. Equally disgusting are McCain and Hilary's comments; one wants to bomb, bomb and bomb Iran and the other wants to "obliterate it'. Give two minutes to John McCain on the TV, he shoots the Anti-Islam rhetoric. I have not seen McCain's mouth spew out anything but hate and war. Give the same two minutes to Clinton, she wants to be the commander in Chief from day one.

It sounds downright stupid to the community of nations that a Democratic America talks about Commanders in Chief as though we are a dictatorship. Most Americans realize the cheap gimmick to gain votes. "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" said Edmund Burke. It is time for the moderate majority of Americans of all hues to speak out and condemn the words of Clinton and McCain. With friends like Clinton, Jews don't need enemies. Her words fuel the anti-Semitic repressed sentiments among average Americans and certainly evoke anger in the Middle East; whereas McCain fuels Islamophobia.

Do we need these two to run our nation down? Absolutely not! To be fair in the media, Clinton's Obliteration and McCain's bombing should be looped 24 hours on CNN and Fox like the Wright sound bites. We need our President to stay away from sacrificing our men and women and bent on destruction. We need a President who talks and brings peace and prosperity and respect in the community of nations.
