From the J-Post:Emanuel to be Obama’s chief of staff

In an interview with Ma’ariv, Emanuel’s father, Dr. Benjamin Emanuel, said he was convinced that his son’s appointment would be good for Israel. “Obviously he will influence the president to be pro-Israel,” he was quoted as saying. “Why wouldn’t he be? What is he, an Arab? He’s not going to clean the floors of the White House.”

The Ma’ariv article also quoted Dr. Emanuel as saying that his son spends most summers visiting in Tel Aviv, and that he speaks Hebrew, but not fluently.

We should be grateful Mr Emanuel Terrorist-Senior’s bigotry is out in the open for all to see. Here is a reminder of just who some of those Arab-Americans are whom he impugns, as he impugns us all with his bigotry be it leveled against Arabs or any other heritage. Here’s a very selective list just from wikipedia, followed by a Rahm Round-up. – Ann
