He should be taken into custody by the Secret Service, arraigned and tried. If this same editorial had been written by a Dearborn-based Imam, heads would be exploding everywhere - including on LGF.

This guy's an asshole.

re: #1 imp_62

I'm going double-up with you on that. I'm pretty sure he's broken the law. But not nearly as bad as he's broken simple logic. There is no way in hell that his Tom Clancy scenario has been discussed in Israeli upper circles, since they really don't have time to screw around with such stupid ideas--like how assassinating a US President will somehow tighten US/Israel ties.

Jail.

It's crap like this that fuels anti-Israel sentiment & conspiracy theories on the far left and far right. How widely read is this guy?

Exactly what I was thinking. This guy is basically fueling anti Israel sentiment. And if Israeli ever did this which they wouldn't, it would severely damage American-Israeli ties to say the least.

Severely damage them? It would make us mortal enemies, at least in my book. I can't imagine them making such a stupid move, especially considering the already hostile neighborhood they live in.

For what it's worth, he apologized today:

"to say the least." but yes. But yeah I wasn't even thinking about what the impact a foreign nation arranging an assassination on American president would have. It's just that insane.

re: #7 Charles

IMO, only after someone told him he's being investigated.

Wow. Utterly mind-boggling in its sheer stupidity and insanity.

re: #7 Charles

For what it's worth, he apologized today:

Ain't worth squat, in my humble opinion - he should be getting a knock on the door right before federal agents bust it down and haul his despicable butt for questioning and trial. As others already suggested, if this had been coming from someone Muslim, he'd be in a cell by this point....

He wrote that "piece" to see what type of reaction he would get? Oy Vey. This goes beyond idiocy.

You gotta love political editorials that reference "Star Trek:Wrath of Khan", Alice in Wonderland and Tom Clancy in the argument! Firm grasp of reality there, boys...

The ADL's Foxman issues a scathing condemnation:

There is absolutely no excuse, no justification, no rationalization for this kind of rhetoric. It doesn't even belong in fiction. These are irresponsible and extremist words. It is outrageous and beyond the pale. An apology cannot possibly repair the damage.

Irresponsible rhetoric metastasizes into more dangerous rhetoric. The ideas expressed in Mr. Adler's column reflect some of the extremist rhetoric that unfortunately exists -- even in some segments of our community -- that maliciously labels President Obama as an 'enemy of the Jewish people.'

Mr. Adler's lack of judgment as a publisher, editor and columnist raises serious questions as to whether he's fit to run a newspaper.

Well said.

And why isn't this disgusting traitorous slimebag in jail RIGHT NOW???
