He and the Jews never got along.Obama and Netanyahu obviously never liked each other and    Obama always took the Muslims side in any disagreements. BTW- Obama, like several other Presidents ,promise to move our Embassy to Jeruselam from Tel Aviv and never follow through. Trump did and now we have a great relation with Isreal. Dems have been more anti-semitic than Republicans in the recent past.

I can't change him no matter how much I would like to. This is his pattern of life.

I think we all have the responsibility and civic duty to fight racism and bigotry.

It would be the "Christian thing to do".......no?

Muslim Groups Set a Donations Goal for Pittsburgh Victims. They Raised Five Times as Much
The campaign on LaunchGood, a Muslim-focused crowdfunding site, blew past its $25,000 goal.


The campaign page invites all faiths to contribute, and the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh will work directly with the Tree of Life Synagogue to distribute the funds to the injured victims and grieving families.
"Through this campaign, we hope to send a united message from the Jewish and Muslim communities that there is no place for this type of hate and violence in America." the LaunchGood page says.


Shay Khatiri, an Iranian immigrant studying in Washington DC, was also inspired to help. He launched the Tree of Life Synagogue Victims campaign on GoFundMe on Saturday with a goal of $50,000. Khatiri has been inspired by the outpouring of support. More than 10 thousand people have donated, raising over $600,000.
"Everyone talks about how divided we are. But in such a tragic moment, Americans are always powerful and indivisible in trauma," Khatiri said.

Years ago, they had places for unstable people but society decided it was better to have unstable people walking amongst us with heavy medications (if they took them). We still have them (mental institutions) but people decided it was unkind to house people that were unsafe to society, so it is tough to qualify as INSANE.

easyed598:  Fake news strikes again-His daughter,son in law,and grandson are Jews. Reality escapes Democrats,

 

 

The reality is that despite Jared and Ivanka being jews, Trump traffics in anti-semitism for political gain which greenlights scum like the alt right. When someone walks, talks, and quacks like a duck.....they're probably a duck.

Seems labels are heavy on the minds of some in this group.
