RABBI FIRST U.S. VICTIM OF JIHAD
KAHANE CEREMONY OFFENSIVE TO OBAMA
Any commemoration in the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) of the anniversary of Rabbi Meir Kahane's assassination would be harmful to the peace process, the American Embassy told The Jerusalem Post.
The American comments came after the Jerusalem Post obtained e-mails in which an embassy official told Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin's office that any plans for such a ceremony was "something that Senator [George] Mitchell and his team are following with concern."
The e-mails also implied that such a ceremony would be frowned upon by President Barack Obama who is attempting to strengthen the U.S. ties to Muslim nations.
The likelihood of such a ceremony taking place was also the subject of a flurry of internal embassy e-mails, in which US officials scrambled to find out where and when a commemoration of the assassinated far-right-wing rabbi would occur.
The American-born Kahane was murdered in New York 19 years ago by an Egyptian-American who was a member of the same al-Qaida cell that carried out the first terror attack on the World Trade Center in 1993.

I can’t say what i really want to. I’d be thrown in prison.
Yeah......but O’Messiah really does consider himself the Emperor of Planet Earth.
Why does this not surprise me?
Of al-Qaeda maybe. But there was the "Hanafi Siege" in Washington, D.C. 1977, where Sunni jihadis killed two people.
Wake America!!!!! This Mobama is very dangerous! all indicators are pointing in that direction. Everything he does he does out of hate! Evil
I really, really hate this SOB. Who the h*ll cares what that POS frowns at?..
I hope Israel tells Obama to stick it where the sun don’t shine.
Advising the parliament of another sovereign country is OK — but criticizing a dictatorial regime that massacres its own people in the street (Iran) isn’t?
It’s not like there’s a double standard (favoring Muslims) here, is there?
Note to China:
If you keep him, There will be a nice chunk of cash in it for you. Dollars, gold or silver, your choice.
Everyday, every single day this bastard provides yet another reason to hate him.
I hope Israel responds by creating a national holiday honoring Kahane.
That would be perfectly awesome!
We are led by utter scum—lowest of the low.
Lower than whale shit.
Seriously, why does our American Embassy care what the Knesset does. Would we care if the Israel embassy make comments when we commemoration Dr. Martin King?
I understand why we want to make sure we don't offend the little egos of the Muzzie if we want them to talk, but this Muzzie appeasement is getting ridiculous
Taking care of nobama’s “brothers-in-arms” again, I see. How, oh, how in the world were americans fooled by this tourist in chief. 21 foreign countries visited so far, and on our bill.
Am I reading this correctly? Obama doesn’t want a victim murdered by al-quada to be honored because it might offend muslims?
What is wrong with this picture?
Why would he be worried about offending people who supposedly don’t support alquada? (/sarc)
