Charles Schumer on Obama and Jerusalem: Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (Video)


Senator Charles Schumer

Senator Charles Schumer

In an interview with Charlie Rose on CBS This Morning, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) strongly declared that most Democratic party members support the concept of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Schumer was probably surprised by this vote later in the day, that would strongly indicate the opposite.

When Rose pressed Schumer for President Obama’s position on Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Schumer stated that Obama is for a very strong Israel, but he doesn’t know what the President’s position on Jerusalem as Israel’s capital actually is, and that they’ve never spoken about it.

Sounds a lot like, “Don’t ask, don’t tell.”

  3. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    Another kapo willing to do anything to be accepted by the fascist self=declared "g-d" in chief. Seems soros and kissinger have been working overtime teaching the lokes of schumer and debiie how to grovel properly when in the presence of such greatness as "g-d" himself, obama.

  4. Ethan Perks says:

  5. Stupid Jews of NY. Elected this Yutz and got rid of a true friend of Israel Alfons Dimatto. New York you deserve this putz!

  6. Mark L. Shane says:

    shumer is first of all, a politician. if it was at any point a potential feather for his cap he would get behind Jeusalem becoming capital… but it wont help him so he goes with the majority and says nothing.On the other hand who needs the vote of the usa/state dept. , the democrats or shumer… Their 2 faced yes & no on where OUR capital should be is more of that" Israel worrys about how others feel" stuff. Israel should cut it's own path thru the swamp & not worry about what this or that do , feel or say…

  7. Ken McCarty says:

    One more clear indication of Obama & Schumer's position. Key now is, what will the Jewish community do? Continue to support both, I hope not…

  8. Ha shomer k'mohu lo tzarich oyevim! trans. 'with friends like these……….'
