Israel’s Ambassador: DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz Lied

Israel’s U.S. ambassador Michael Oren denied the claim made by Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, that he had told her that what the Republican party was doing was “dangerous for Israel.”

Back in August, Hadassah Magazine interviewed Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and one of their question was: “Why did you call on both parties to refrain from challenging each other over support for Israel?”

“What the Republicans are doing is dangerous,” answered the DNC chair. “They are using Israel as a political football.… Israel’s ambassador [to the United States], Michael Oren, has said this. If there is any perception of daylight between the parties on support for Israel, that strengthens Israel’s enemies. The president rejects what some Republican candidates have been saying, that America should review all its foreign aid commitments from zero, making each country justify the support it receives.”

Then, in a speech at the Democratic Convention yesterday, Debbie Wasserman Schultz declared, “We know, and I’ve heard no less than Ambassador Michael Oren say this, that what the Republicans are doing is dangerous for Israel.”

In an emailed statement, Ambassador Oren stated “I categorically deny that I ever characterized Republican policies as harmful to Israel. Bipartisan support is a paramount national interest for Israel, and we have great friends on both sides of the aisle.”

According to Philip Klein of the Beltway Confidential, the Florida congresswoman made the charge at a training session for Jewish Democrats, aimed at teaching Jewish Democrats how to convince their fellow Jews to vote for Obama.

As she was wrapping up her remarks, Klein reports, she claimed that, “We know, and I’ve heard no less than Ambassador Michael Oren say this, that what the Republicans are doing is dangerous for Israel.”

It could be that she didn’t actually mean that Oren had told this to her directly – but there’s no doubt that the impression her crew of volunteers walked away with was: Oren told Debbie the Republicans are dangerous to Israel.

He says he never did. She lied, basically using Israel to bash the Republicans.

    What do you expect from a whore kapo?

    During the rise of the Nazi party in Germany, one of their slogans was "forward." The new Democratic Party platform issued yesterday indicates that there is in fact a great similarity in chairman barack's use of the term to denote his campaign.

    Not only did the party legitimize attacks on a G-d" and against Israel by terror groups, but in their video comment that "the people belong to the government," they made it clear that the goal of the "party" (sound familiar?) is to make this the United States of obama not the United States of America!


  2. Roc Diaz says:

    a bunch of political bs, who cares. maybe she even forgot what was said. very possible when someone is so sociallly invovled that they cannot remeber every thing that was spoken. we have more important things to discuss, no?

  3. Bradford Tiernan says:

    Really? Is that why she blatanly LIED about and Accuse the reporter who quoted her of blatanly lying?

    But then the reporter released a tape of her saying it and she refuses to appoligize?

    She is a blatant PROVEN liar!


  4. Bradford Tiernan says:

    Really? Is that why she blatanly LIED about the false statement and then accused the reporter who quoted her of being a liar?

    But then the reporter released a tape of her saying exactly what he reported and she refuses to apologize for calling HIM a liar?

    She is a blatant PROVEN liar!


  5. Eran Spiro says:

    Yes, The Republican policies in the Middle East (OIL) could harm Israel.

  6. Edward Lobel says:

    Arie, g-d does not like hateful people like you.
    Why do you think it is OK to say rude and nasty things about people.
    You think it's OK to call A Jewish women a whore kapo? what you going to do when someone calls your wife or daughter a whore kapo.

    You appreantly do not know what you are talking about when you say that the democrats legtimize attackes on g-d and that you sound more like a nazi then you think you do.

    you know hitler used the big lie theory:
    lie to them often enough
    make it outrageous enough
    and they will believe it.
    You are just the the type of weak mined person that spout unfounded lies.
    This makes you look more foolish than you already appear to be.
    Remember, g-d does not like liars and people who are so hateful!

  7. Edward Lobel says:

    You choose to believe fox news to tell you the truth, that is beyond laugable.
    You may choose to believe Oren, but rational sane people choose to believe wasserman-Shultz as she has impecible honesty and is above reproach.

    Oren probably did say what he said and then when he got called out on it, did what everyone does, backpeddled.

    You should get some real facts before you give people even more reason to believe you are foolish!

  8. Bradford Tiernan says:



    I love it, even when there are recordings showing you leftist morons the lies being told, you just say "Fox News Lies" – your ears dont matter!

    LOL, Pathetic!

  9. Bradford Tiernan says:

    BTW- it doesnt matter what Oren said, she either lied then or now, EITHER WAY SHE LIED!

  10. Edward Lobel says:

    If the recording that was played (which was not part of the fox news broadcast) is real then I stand corrected,
    Glad you realize I am in fact a genius.

  11. Bill Markson says:

    The policies of the Obama administration viz a viz domestic oil production are harmful to Israel and the U.S. as they make us more dependent upon Arab and oil and make our enemies stronger.

  12. Bill Markson says:

    Edward Lobel: So Ambassador Oren is a liar and Wasserman is telling the truth?

  13. Lisa Bjork says:

    '' You appreantly do not know what you are talking about when you say that the democrats legtimize attackes on g-d''. Edward you need to stop drinking…sweetie.

  14. Chaiya Eitan says:

    I – of course – believe Amb. Oren… I will let others draw their conclusions concerning Ms. Wasserman.

  15. Chaiya Eitan says:

    Half of those (not one third) of those at the convention voted 'nay' to change the platform to include G-d in it….as well as saying that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

  16. Edward Lobel says:

    don't know what domestic oil production you are referring to, but U.S. domestic oil production is way up and helping ease the burden.
    You do understand that there is more drilling going on in the U.S. than under Reagan, and both Bush's.

  17. Edward Lobel says:

    I myself did indeed hear that, but have not heard what the reason was. I do know that here in the U.S. there are many, many, religions and therefore many g-ds. Of course we both agree that our g-d is the one true g-d, but in all fairness it is a very touchy subject in the U.S. as many people do not think that other religions g-ds should be given any preference. The evangelicals only want the g-d to be their g-d etc.
    You do know of course that our laws under the Constitution prohibits the government from being in the g-d "business" or regulating g-d. I am not saying that is the reason the neys seemed louder, but could believe it if it was true.

  18. Eran Spiro says:

    Bill Markson is incorrect in his false statement!

  19. Edward Lobel says:

    Lisa Bjork -Sorry to disappoint you Lisa, but it is you who do not understand! The U.S. is ruld by a Constitution which bars the gov't from being in the g-d "business" The democrats did not do any such thing as to allow "legitimate attacks" on g-d or for that matter any attack at all on g-d.
    There are many Americans who simply want to keep g-d away from politics. The repubs and tea baggers are false in their beliefs and use it only as a tool to try and hurt the otherg.
    willard says he is very religious and worships his g-d, but his g-d is not a lying, hiurtful, decietful g-d, and that is what willard does time after time. ryan says he is a very religious Catholic, but nuns and bishops in the Catholic church thin he doens't follow his g-ds teaching making him a not so faithful follower.
    Both of thes men want their g-d to be everyone's g-d and I for one do not want that. So perhaps it is a good thing that maybe there was some difference of opinion between the democrats.
    One thing I can tell you for sure, is that ALL DEMOCRATS WANT JERUSHILIAM TO BE THE CAPITOL OF ISRAEL, there is NO dispute about that.
    Lastly, just so you know, it was Obama who insisted that the Democratic platform include g-d and tat Jerushiliam be the capitol/

  20. Avner Garbi says:

    Shame on you Arie Rosenrauch Calling Debbie A whore and comparing democrats to Nazis , you stupid ignorant, empty tea bag, Obama did more for Israel then any other president , ehod barak said that to cnn. also name one Jewish Senator in the republican party they don't have any. and congressman in their party you can count on one hand, so that should tell you how much they like Jews.

  21. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    @Edward: First of all I appreciate your speaking for obama, a "g-d" in his own mind! Secondly I defy you to state where I was hateful? Just making FACT filled observations! The slogan "froward" in politics has been used by Hitler, Mao, Stalin, Lenin, Marx, and now obama! THAT IS A FACT! And actually it wasn't hit;ler it was goebbes with the theory, a theory their disciple soros has brought to the obama campaign and the DNC. All that said, I find it interesting that at NO time do you disprove anything I say, rather you stage a personal attack befitting of the obama lemmings who have no real answer other than the kool aid he gives them to slurp down. As for your obvious adoration of the Clintons (as per your FB page) let me remind you that it was Bill who had no issue demonizing a young impressionable Jewish woman after he seduced and molested her, And it is hillary that goes out of her way to try and humiliate Jewish leaders globally. And the FACT that they BOTH now lie in their support of the chairman speaks volumes. I remember Bill saying openly in 2008 that obama wasn't even worthy of carrying his baggage. All that aside, the DNC platform demonizing Israel by supporting hamas and calling for the Arabs to move to anywhere they want in Israel shows just where they stand – and you support. I am waiting for the closing ceremonies – which I am sure will include a burning of both US and Israeli flags. But try and remember Edward, no matter how much it pisses you, obama, and the kapos off, this remains the United States of America, NOT the United States of obama, Thank you for your interest and ask "g-d" (oops I eman obama) how to respond.

  22. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    Chaiya Eitan At the least. Bottom line it is an indicator that the DNC has become simply the US arm of the MB

  23. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    Lisa Bjork He is not drinking just anything Lisa ….. That is specially prepared barack "I AM the REAL g-d" obama certified hallal kool aid.

  24. Edward Lobel says:

    Arie, you are the kind of Jew who causes anti semitism!
    You are an idiot who doesn't have a clue about anything.
    You are closer to being a muslim than me or Obama.
    You have a very sorry life and as I told you before Mark Twain said:

  25. Edward Lobel says:

    Never argue with a stupid person, they wikll bring you down to their level where you cannot win.
    you have repeatly demonstrated you are stupid have no idea what you are talking about.

  26. Edward Lobel says:

    Arie Rosenrauch Hey idiot just because you say soemthing doesn't make it a fact. I can say for certain the facts indicate you are a stupid low life idiot. I can say for sure you are the kind of stupid Jew who casuse anti semitism. I can say for a fact that you called Debbie Wasserman-Schultz a whore. I can say for a fact that you no nothing about george soros and even less about American politics. I can say for a fact that you you know nothing about President Obama, I can say for sure that President Obama will not let Israel fail and your stupid response is he will, now prove I am wrong. YOU CAN NOT PROVE ANYTHING YOU SAY. YOU CAN NOT MAKE UP A FACT AND THEN SAY IT IS CORRECT.

  27. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    @Edward..the chairman barack politburo cares as much about the Constitution as Stalin cared about human rights. Quots from the chairman himself show his contempt, and his executive orders by pass the Constitution at every step!

  28. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    Edward Lobel YES I did call debbie a "kapo whore." Look up the word whore. It does not always reference sex. A whore is also someone who will basically sell their souls for a couple of shekels. I must say I see that I have won this exchange the only responses you have now are personal attacks and euphemisms. That is the typical sign of an obama ignor-anus – no ability to disprove the FACTS so you go on a venal attack. I don't cause Antisemitism, I expose it. IF you were a Jew, you would follow in the soros footseps prepared to be bought off by the one who believes he is "g-d" and escort other Jews to the ovens. And you credited hitler with the quote. You are really getting more and more irate. Your adoration of soros is quite interesting – especially given his quote where he calls the time he sent helping the nazis the best of his life. NOW, soros tries to buy US politics (he obviously conned you) by buying mediamatters, 'j'udenrein street, chairman barack, ANP, KKK, and so many other Jew hating groups. I don't have to prove you are wrong gauleiter edward. Every line you post proves I am RIGHT. So go ahead and keep screaming. It shows what you really are. Perhaps I should suggest you go see a good Jew psychiatrist that can prescribe you some strong meds. I realize obamacare only pays for birth control, so you will have to do with paying for it yourself. Come back soon. Seems I'm not the only one that enjoys reading the gauleiter edward kapo rantings screaming as you try and defend those taht would re-stoke the ovens, rebuild the cattle cars, and have another good old fashioned Jew burn!

  29. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    @Lisa: Beware the likes of Edward. While he is humorous, it is the likes of "Jews" like him that helped in the camps stoking ovens to save their own lives and – like soros – make a profit

  30. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    @Edward..are you being paid to stalk JP and post the demoslamist drivel? The drilling going on in the US is what is happening on PRIVATE property. NEW field permits have been stymied by YOUR "g-d" and drilling on public fields have come to a dead stop! And the only reason we are not importing more oil is because under your "majestic one" the economy remains in ruins meaning less is consumed meaning less is imported. One last item, under your massa, the price of oil has gone up by 250% further reducing use of oil and forcing the cost of everything else to go up – although you still have the food stamps my tax funds are paying for so you don't give a shiite. Now, feel free to return to your obfuscating the truth with your obama issued propaganda!
