Giuliani Hammers Obama: “So Jesus is an Embarrassment?”
Back in 2009, Barack Obama refused to stand under a cross at Georgetown. He demanded that the “religious symbol” be covered up before he gave a speech. Yet, Obama recently had no problem giving a speech under a picture of notorious terrorist Yasser Arafat, a man with American blood on his hands. That didn’t sit well with former New York City Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, who had some harsh words for Barack Obama on the Hannity show.
“Eighteen years ago I threw Yasser Arafat out of the U.N. — concert at Beethoven’s Symphony Avery Fisher Hall. He was specifically not invited, we didn’t want to invite dictators, terrorists and murderers to this concert, so he wasn’t invited.
…When I was a U.S. attorney, I investigated him specifically for the murder of Leon Klinghoffer on Achille Lauro. …He ordered that murder of a Jewish man who was in a wheelchair who was thrown into the Mediterranean. I’m sorry. That was only one of 26 Americans that he murdered.
…And to me, when the President of the United States stands there with this guy’s picture in back of him, it says to me, does this man have any sense of history? Does he know what the heck he’s dealing with? This is a man who’s murdered at least 27 Americans, those are the tip of the iceberg, that’s I can count.
…So Jesus is an embarrassment and Arafat isn’t? I’m having a really hard time with that.”
Remember when we used to have Presidents of the United States who were embarrassed by being associated with terrorists, not Christians? Well, Americans wanted to change and they certainly got it.
