Not a Friend of Israel

Jennifer Rubin, the brilliant blogger at Commentary highlights Ed Koch's appraisal of the Medal of Freedom to Mary Robinson - not a friend of Israel and draws a conclusion.

Koch: Not until she by some actions and deeds, not simply words, convinces supporters of Israel of her good will towards Israel will she be seen as other than anti-Semitic. President Barack Obama, like every other person, makes mistakes. Awarding Mary Robinson the Medal of Freedom is one of his worst mistakes to date.

Jennifer Rubin: The question remains for Obama: How to correct the error? Pretending that Robinson is something other than she is—an anti-Israel activist—is fooling no one. It merely convinces those who care about Israel that Obama does not.
