    Hey, if they can get Passover added to the official government calendar (so I can stay home from work and perfect my competitive eating skills) then I for one will welcome our new Jewish overlords! 😉

    You could also include Jews who supported islamic terrorism and genocide aginst the Serbs in Clintons government like Richard Hoolbroke and Madeline Albright, etc.

    Well, I think both Holbrooke and Albright would be very surprised by this – since neither considers themselves Jewish! It doesn’t excuse what Clinton did in Serbia, but get your facts straight!

      Albright, like John Kerry and Gen. Wesley Clarke (spl?), suddenly found out they were Jewish after investigators discovered their Jewish ancestry. It seems that just because their mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters and grandparents were Jewish, didn’t mean they were. The term is “Marranos”. Marranos are “5th Column” Jews, who fake conversion, even going back centuries, in order to hide their Jewishness, but, secretly remain and practise Judaism.

        Well, not exactly correct. Marranos (or Conversos) refers only to those who were forced to convert (or be expelled or killed) from Spain and Portugal. I’m not sure about Clarke, but Albright’s heritage goes back to Eastern Europe so she’s likely not a Marrano – which by the way had the connotation of ‘filthy’ or ‘pig.’

    That doesn’t mean he likes them at all.
