Charles Krauthammer said it was foolish for the Obama administration to pretend that the January terrorist attack on a Kosher deli in Paris was not motivated by anti-Semitism.
“The idea [here] was for terrorism, for an anti-Semitic act, not that you have a grievance against the individual, but you want to attack Jews,” Krauthammer said on Special Report. “What does it take [for a terrorist attack to be deemed anti-Semitic] and why did they spend the whole day with this ridiculous pretense that it wasn’t? Because otherwise it would have meant admitting that the president is not infallible.”
Krauthammer said the matter would have been cleared up sooner if the Obama administration had admitted the president’s failure to use the word “Kosher” in his description of the deli attacked in Paris.
