Andrew Adler, the owner and publisher of the Atlanta Jewish Times announced Monday that he is “relinquishing all day-to-day activities effective immediately,” in the aftermath of the publication of an opinion piece in which he wrote that assassinating President Obama was one of Israel’s options in thwarting a nuclear Iran.

In the January 13 column, Adler listed what he believed were three possible options for Israel if Iran acquired a nuclear weapon: a strike on Iran; a pre-emptive strike against Iranian proxies Hamas and Hizbollah; or “give the go-ahead for U.S.-based Mossad agents to take out a president deemed unfriendly to Israel in order for the current vice president to take his place, and forcefully dictate that the United States policy includes its helping the Jewish state obliterate its enemies.”
