Jerusalem - New York City Democratic Assemblyman Dov Hikind says U.S. President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry are “living on the moon” and that their current “double standard” towards Americans murdered while living abroad in Israel is “embarrassing and offensive.”

ISRAELNATIONALNEWS.com (http://bit.ly/1NqSjIr) reports that Hikind accused Obama and Kerry of playing politics with American deaths in Israel and that their current policies amount to a “victory for our enemies.”

Hikind made the comments while speaking at the International Conference Against Sexual Abuse and Violence in Jerusalem this week.

At the event sponsored by Tahel, Hikind said, “If you are an American citizen living in Paris and you get murdered by terrorists, you get treated one way, you get sympathy from the President and Secretary of State. But if you are an American citizen living in Israel, they don’t know who you are. They neglect you. It is beyond comprehension.”

“When our administration plays politics with the lives of people, it is a victory for our enemies,” Hikind said. “For the radical Islamic organizations. They get it. Our president doesn’t get it. He doesn’t even use the words radical Islam. He is living on the moon and not on this planet, that’s for sure. As an American I am embarrassed by the Obama administration, by the President, by the Secretary of State, that not all American citizens are equal.”

In a way Assemblyman Hikind is correct. But it is very offensive to orthodox Jews that Hikind should raise his voice against a sitting President.

See,we are citizens here in the USA and we have our freedom of speech.We have the right to criticize anyone we wish. But after all we are Jews and as Jews we shouldn't do stuff like this. It would be much better that statements like these should come from secular Jewish politicians. it is a big Shanda.

Please use common sense. There are over 1 billion muslims in the world. If all of them were radical we would have a very serious problem. Just because the 10,000,000 (assuming only 1%) that are radical manage to do a lot of damage and get lots of press time does not mean they all are radical.

Of those 99% who according to you are not radical at least 65% agree with their actions.

I don't know where you got that number from, but even if it is true that still isn't ALL.

Of course they are not all radical! Most ridiculous thing I ever heard. Many, the great majority are truly kind wonderful people!

But show me their kids. Show me their Imam. Guarantee me they won't be radicalized. You can't. And until then go chant "give me your tired your poor" all the live long day. But don't come crying to me when they blow up the statue of liberty with your friends and neighbors in it
