Look how proud they are

Headline from Haaretz:

Obama's first pick: Israeli Rahm Emanuel as chief of staff


Do you see the problem? Rahm is not an American. He's not an American Jew. He's certainly not a Jewish American. He's an Israeli, and the Israelis think that it's just swell when they have a guy representing them ensconced inside the White House, for instance.

The article goes on to say, without a hint of embarassment...
Emanuel, a former Bill Clinton adviser, is the son of a Jerusalem-born pediatrician who was a member of the Irgun (Etzel or IZL), a militant Zionist [terrorist - Ed.] group that operated in Palestine between 1931 and 1948.
Nice. More info here.

Update: Classy.
In strikingly racist remarks, the father of Rahm Emanuel has said Israel will benefit from Obama's choice of White House chief of staff.

"Obviously he will influence the president to be pro-Israel. Why wouldn't he be? What is he, an Arab? He's not going to clean the floors of the White House," Benjamin Emanuel, father of Rahm Emanuel, told the Israeli Ma'ariv daily.
