Which Jews Choose (Samantha) Power, Which Won’t

Prof. Alan Dershowitz is a liberal intellectual Jew who supports Power. He pretty much described her this way: she has a loose mouth, she's said things she shouldn't have, she will need to learn to be a diplomat, but she will be the voice of the Obama administration at the United Nations. And by the way, her being perceived as anti-Israel is really kinda good for the Jews, right?

At least three leading pro-Israel American organizations have come out early and with vigor against the nomination of Samantha Power to become the next United States Ambassador to the United Nations.

The non-partisan Washington D.C.-based Endowment for Middle East Truth, a self-described think tank and policy shop, issued a statement deploring the nomination on Tuesday, June 4,  the same day that the Republican Jewish Coalition did.  The Zionist Organization of America, the oldest Zionist organization in America, was the first out of the starting gate with its long, detailed, public opposition to Power’s nomination on Monday June 3.

And on the other side of the ring we have perhaps the most famous and famously wealthy Jewish organization, the Anti-Defamation League, Harvard Professor Alan Dershowitz and rabbi to the Stars and former congressional candidate Shmuley Boteach, all of whom are publicly placing their heckshers on Powers.

The Republican Jewish Coalition said Power “has a record of statements that are very troubling to Americans who support Israel.”

“In 2008, as an academic who taught at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, Samantha Power suggested  that the U.S. should invade Israel militarily to impose a settlement to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and protect “a new state of Palestine.” Her writing and public appearances reflected her views that special-interest lobbies in this country (read, the “Israel lobby”) have too great an impact on our foreign policy in the Middle East,” RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks said in a written statement. “She must respond to the strong doubts about her views raised by that record. Senators should also examine her tenure as head of the President’s Atrocity Prevention Board to see what results, if any, came out of her time there.”

ZOA National President Morton A. Klein said, “The ZOA is deeply concerned about and opposed to the nomination of Samantha Power as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. The overwhelming evidence of her entire record causes us great fear and concern as to her appropriateness for this post. Ms. Power’s record clearly shows that she is viscerally hostile to Israel, regards it as a major human rights abuser, even committing war crimes, and would like to see the weight of American military and financial power go to supporting the Palestinian Authority, not Israel. In contrast, she has spoken of Iran as though it scarcely poses a problem. She also strongly suggested that the U.S. cease worrying about alleged Jewish power and money which allegedly forces the U.S. to support Israel and which allegedly is not in the national interest.

“Samantha Power is clearly the wrong choice for UN Ambassador, particularly at this sensitive juncture in history,” EMET’s President and Founder Sarah Stern wrote in a press release.

“Considering  Power’s openly hostile positions  on Israel as well as her deep seated resentment for the United States, and her biases in favor of the Palestinians despite their continued incitement to hate and to kill Israelis, our one true democratic  ally in the region,  and on the Iranian nuclear program, “she continued, “this appointment shows supporters of Israel that the Obama Administration’s worst instincts are coming to the fore in its second term. It’s deeply distressing.  We  oppose her nomination in the strongest terms possible.”

There are those in the public eye who are frequently considered to have strongly Jewish, pro-Israel positions, who have expressed support for Power.Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, the prolific author once known as the “rabbi to the stars” because of his close-relationship with singer Michael Jackson, was won over by Power during a closed meeting between her and “40 Jewish leaders held in the offices of Jewish philanthropist Michael Steinhardt.

Boteach described that meeting and his conversion to Power-lover and defender of Power in an article published in the Huffington Post:

Typical of her erudition and brilliance, Samantha presented a sweeping view of American policy in the world’s most dangerous region. Then, she directly addressed the accusations that she harbored animus toward Israel. And in the presence of the leaders of our community, she suddenly became deeply emotional and struggled to complete her presentation as she expressed how deeply such accusations had affected her.

Tears streamed down her cheeks and I think it fair to say that there was no one in the room who wasn’t deeply moved by this incredible display of pain and emotion.

And the ADL’s national director Abraham Foxman and Barry Curtiss-Lusher, ADL National Chair, had this to say:

As the world is sickened by the images of slaughter in Syria and as Israel faces an ever more volatile Middle East, we are heartened that the U.S. will be represented by an individual whose moral resolve and fierce pragmatism will serve our country well.

Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz, strongly recommended confirming Powers’ nomination, but the words he chose and the way he used them are worth parsing carefully.  He wrote:

      To be sure, Samantha has said some things she now regrets — about Hillary Clinton, about Israel and about other controversial matters. She says what she thinks when she thinks it.
As the United States representative to the United Nations, she will articulate the policy of the Obama Administration.        She will have to be more diplomatic than she was while in private life. I am confident that she will make our country proud.
I have discussed the Israeli-Arab and Israeli-Palestinian conflict with Samantha on many occasions. As a strong supporter of Israel’s security, I have a high level of confidence that she will do and say the right things.
Indeed, because of her sometimes critical attitude toward certain Israeli policies — some of which I agree with, others of which I do not — she will bring added credibility to her positions at the most anti-Israel location in the world other than perhaps, Tehran.

In other words, she has a loose mouth, she’s said things she shouldn’t have, she will need to learn to be a diplomat, but she will be the voice of the Obama administration at the United Nations.  And by the way, her being perceived as anti-Israel is really kinda good for the Jews, right?

    Oh such non sense!

  2. Samantha Power is a dangerous stupified leftist pro-Arab brainwashed marionette, whose strings are held by Emperor O.

  3. David Shaffer says:

    " And by the way, her being perceived as anti-Israel is really kinda good for the Jews, right?" Except that she'll be perceived as anti-Israel only by pro-Israel people…

  4. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    She is perceived as Anti-Jewish not Anti-Israel, and that is the very recent obama picked her: she fits his vision of a future without Jews.

  5. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    The last paragraph says it all: She is perceived as Anti-Jewish not Anti-Israel, and that is the very recent obama picked her: she fits his vision of a future without Jews. It is not surprising that the ADL supports her. Recent commentary by the ADL has castigated those that are demanding a more accurate reporting of Jew hate attacks in the US, which have grown exponentially and reported not as hate crimes but simple assaults by obama's DOJ and supported as such by the ADL.

    Boteach? REALLY? Michael Jackson's "Rabbi" who went out of his way to defend a pedophile drug addict? He's a 'sage' to quote?

    As for Dershowitz, he is proving that he is always prepared to be an apologist for the obama regime when it comes to the inherent Jew hatred the regime now exudes.

    To quote: "To be sure, Samantha has said some things she now regrets — about Hillary Clinton, about Israel and about other controversial matters. She says what she thinks when she thinks it."

    YES: She says what she thinks! And she SAID that she wants a "US led NATO invasion of Israel and maintain a long term military presence to protect the Palestinians against the Jews. " Why do we need her to be diplomatic? She is being honest in her belief and what she will do and say in the UN.

    Rice REPEATEDLY insulted and demeaned Israel in the UN. Powers "saying some things she shouldn't," like how much she hates Jews, will make some of the Jew bashers at the UN look like boy scouts.

    She will be yet another Richard Falk.

  7. Myriam Obadia says:

    The lady is a bigot and an idiot and will never be a diplomat because she lacks the basic ability to turn on her brain before opening her mouth. This said, I wouldn't advise anyone to take on our little country: in over 3500 years, every single victory against us has been Pyrrhic.

  8. Heshy Rosenwasser says:

    An editorial comment, nothing to do with the content of the article: Don't publish in all italics. It is annoying and difficult to read. Use them only for emphasis or a quote more than two lines long. Thanks. Now back to our regularly scheduled bickering.

  9. Heshy Rosenwasser says:

    … except the Roman destructions in the years 70 and 135, which we still mourn today.

The facts on the ground is that obama, mentored by terrorist cop killers like Ayers, Dorn and Boudin and financed by self admitted nazi soros is as devout a Jew hater as has been in the WH.

    The Republican Jewish Coalition isn't a pro-Israel group, it is a group whose purpose is to elect Republicans to public office, by character assassination of pro-Israel Democrats if necessary.

    Endowment for Middle East Truth is a 501(c)(3) charity that is supposed to stay out of politics.

    The Zionist Organization of America has descended into irrelevance. Its management has been so incompetant that it LOST its tax-exempt status for failure to file tax returns!

    It is interesting that right wingers didn't mind the possibility of John Bolton being UN Ambassador; Bolton has been even more of a loose cannon than has Power.

  35. Agree with first para. 2d para too. A Democrat used to be able to stand with ZOA and now it's impossible even to stand it. (But Charlie, what does it say about you when you charge incompetence by misspelling it incompetance?

  36. Stewart Nasar says:

    "militarily invade Israel to help the Palestinians " ? What ?

  37. Charlie Hall says:

    Need a spel cheker for Facebook.

  38. The UN and position Samantha Powers has been awarded is not the place for her to learn diplomacy. A girl dissolving into tears is unacceptable for one in such a powerful position. She is ridiculous as the Irish choice of last female President of Ireland, Mary……….who accused the UK of being a Nazi nation! Having a loose mouth/tongue is appalling and I am afraid anyone with a brain will not feel Israel is being served well by this girl. She is too emotional, too inexperienced, a puppet for Obama to pull strings, she has no concept of Israel's history, Irish are notoriously antisemitic and she is Irish and almost 45% of Americans are. Just look at the sort of nation Ireland is, the laughing stock of Europe, using a language 90% of the Irish population uses. Has the world to put up with these for another two years? We have a major crisis in the Middle East neither Obama, Kerry or Samantha are mature enough or smart enough to handle the crisis. I'm pretty mad, I live in Ireland and know the Irish to be largely fractious, excitable, violent and corrupt. Dumb enough to allow the previous PM to be bribed for Ireland's oil research. The Irish aren't smart enough to retain their oil rights, as in the case of Norway instead she pays Norway 30% of Norway's income to supply Ireland with oil. This girl is Irish, take a look at Ireland's politicians and business leaders, that in itself should have been enough not to allow this girl this position. Ireland produced one sound President with a 21st century head on her shoulder's Mary Robinson who has gone on to do great things internationally, Ireland's only decent export in the last 20 years.

  39. She is so dumb it astounds me, but as you say just what Obama wants.

  40. As you point out Cynthia Obama is almost certainly antisemitic so he use the loose mouth and emotional outbursts of Samantha!

  41. To be sure Ari, Mama or teachers never taught her to think before she opens her mouth!

  42. Joseph Deval Crockham Had Martin Luther King not been murdered he would have been one of the finest Presidents of the US, and yes Joseph he was black. Obama is not even close to MLK either in wisdom, diplomacy or sense. Nothing to do with the colour of Obama's skin, he's just got the wrong end of the stick. If he is not supposed to be Muslim he's acting a lot like an antisemitic Muslim, and for your info, Joseph the Irish have been antisemitic since 1900.

  43. Michael Dallen hair splitting over spelling is pofaced! Samantha Powers is antisemitic, she comes, I would guess from the Powers Whiskey clan! For you information Ireland has been antisemitic since 1900, and further in an antiquarian bookshop down in Galway City, West of Ireland, my Swedish husband found an original signed copy by Hitler himself of 'Mein Kampf'. Are you not aware one of the reasons Ireland remained neutral was so she didn't have to fight along with the rest of Europe against the Germans. There are numerous Germans resident in Ireland since WWII including ex SS members.
