Jerusalem - Hikind Calls Obama And Kerry "Embarrassing And Offensive" During Speech Before Israelis
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.”
