ABC News: Obama Won't Answer Holocaust Question
By Debbie Schlussel July 24, 2008
On the heels of John McCain's strong statement to Israel and the Jews that he would "not allow a second Holocaust" to happen, Barack Hussein Obama was asked whether he'd prevent a second Holocaust by reporters during his trip to Israel.
The setting for the question is notable. It was just before he made a photo op visit to "Yad VaShem," the Holocaust museum in Israel.
What is also notable was Obama's "response" and how it was "covered" by the Mainstream media. While the Wall Street Journal's Jay Solomon and Cam Simpson noted the question, they did not note the response. Why not?
Upon arrival at Yad Vashem, Obama was greeted by Avner Shalev, chairman of Yad Vashem.
An Israeli journalist called out to Obama: "Can you ensure that there will be no second Holocaust?"
Obama walked into the museum's main building without responding. . . .
In the "Hall of Remembrance," Obama put on a white yarmulke, lit the "eternal flame" and placed a white chrysanthemum wreath on a stone slab.
Obama then went to the museum's Janusz Korczak Plaza, where he signed the guest book.
Jake Tapper goes on to quote Obama's BS speech about how terrible he feels about the Holocaust. Blah, blah, blah. Then, this:
Once again an Israeli journalist asked the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee how he'd help prevent a second Holocaust. "Senator can you assure Israel that there will be no second Holocaust despite Iran's threat to wipe us off the map?" he asked.
Obama demurred, saying that it wasn't appropriate to answer the question there.
"This is Yad Vashem!" the journalist responded.
Obama said he would answer the question at a later press availability.
And, of course, Obama never answered the question.
Disgusting. The question is a no-brainer. If you don't have an automatic, "I will assure that there won't be a second Holocaust," response, then you don't deserve to occupy a square foot of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
John McCain initiated the conversation about a second Holocaust, brining it up himself and saying he'll assure it won't happen. Barack Obama had to be asked, and he still couldn't bring himself to answer.
G-d help us.
Hey, Barack Obama, don't put on your phony white satin yarmulke again. Sadly, we know what's inside the head it covers.
