(Before It's News)

Finally. The truth is spoken on CNN, no less.

Islamic Jew-hatred is a central tenet of Islam. The overwhelming number of hate crimes in this country (and elsewhere) are anti-Jewish.  The rise in antisemitism in hardly new. It has been on the rise for the past eight years. Obama’s silence was sanction. Obama welcomed Jew-haters to the White House, and supported numerous anti-Semitic groups. Even during his 2008 election season, his campaign website was riddled with vicious anti-semitism. I have a whole category on it: Obama’s Website: Hub for hate, terror and antisemitism

Rick Santorum suggests Muslims, Obama are to blame for anti-Semitic acts

AOL News, February 22, 20117:

On Tuesday, former Senator Rick Santorum spoke with CNN‘s Chris Cuomo about the rising anti-Semitic actions and sentiments in the U.S.

Cuomo asked him to weigh in on President Trump’s absence of statements on the matter.

Santorum shifted the conversation from recent events, which include a number of bomb threats called into Jewish Community Centers and the desecration of a Jewish cemetery near St. Louis, to incidents occurring on college campuses over a longer period of time.

He also suggested President Obama’s lack of action regarding the matter is at the root of the problem.

He later asserted Muslims are behind a number of the incidents targeting Jewish people.

In making his argument for the former, Santorum said, “I’ve got to tell you, Chris, this is why you hear about ‘fake news.’ For eight years — eight years! — the Obama administration sat by and said nothing about the increasing anti-Semitism on college campuses…It’s an outrage you guys are pointing to this 30 days in, and for eight years you ignored that story!”

 On the topic of Muslim involvement, Santorum commented, “If you look at the fact of the people who are responsible for a lot of the anti-Semitism that we’re seeing…a lot of it is coming from the pro-Palestinian or Muslim community, so let’s lay out that fact

At that point, Cuomo interjected, stating, “I don’t know that that’s a fact…”

Notably, President Trump has since denounced the recent spate of aggression.

Toward the end of a Tuesday appearance at the National Museum of African American History and Culture, he said, “The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centers are horrible and are painful and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil.”
