Come on! We're gonna allow that at ground zero?"This is a desecration," he added. "Nobody would allow something like that at Pearl Harbor.

That alone should have gotten everyone's radar up.Indeed, the double standards, the philosophical ideas at odds with American beliefs, and the clear harm that is intended confirm the idea that "Barack Obama is aggressively destroying our country" and its core beliefs.Again Obama favors an openly Anti - Jewish "Friend".
