Social media is aflame today because of the following tweet from political commentator Ann Coulter:
How many f—ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?
— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) September 17, 2015
She’s said some less than smart things about Jews in the past.
It came as she live tweeted the latest Republican primary debate amid a series of tweets decrying why an American Republican primary debate involved what she felt was an inordinately large amount of discussion about Israel.
This is causing enormous fall out over the web. Ha’aretz and other left wing sites are overjoyed. TheBlaze goes over it quite fairly.
Meanwhile, elsewhere (but barely), it was reported that PA President Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) said the following about The Temple Mount and Jews who wish to visit it:
“Al-Aqsa is ours, the Holy Sepulcher is also ours. They have no right to dirty the mosque with their filthy feet, we won’t let them do it.”
The last time I checked Abu Mazen commanded an army of more than 175,000 armed men. Ann Coulter commands a book contract.
Excuse me while I think what he says is more important to the future of many Jews than a tweet from Ann Coulter.
