#1 National Security Adviser Jones: Jews Are Greedy Merchants04-26-2010, 01:04 PM
As the National Security Adviser, General James Jones is not known as a friend of the Jewish State. It was Jones who put together the team of Brent Scowcroft and Zbigniew Brzezinski to meet with the President and advise him to impose a solution on Israel.
Earlier this week we may have gotten some insight into why Jones is not a fan of the Jewish Homeland. He was giving the key note speech at a Washington Institute For Near East Policy and started it out with a “Joke” that borders on anti-Semitic, teaching the crowd that Jews are just greedy merchants in the same vein as Shakespeare’s Shylock:
A Taliban militant gets lost and is wandering around the desert looking for water. He finally arrives at a store run by a Jew and asks for water. The Jewish vendor tells him he doesn’t have any water but can gladly sell him a tie. The Taliban, the jokes goes on, begins to curse and yell at the Jewish storeowner. The Jew, unmoved, offers the rude militant an idea: Beyond the hill, there is a restaurant; they can sell you water. The Taliban keeps cursing and finally leaves toward the hill. An hour later he’s back at the tie store. He walks in and tells the merchant: “Your brother tells me I need a tie to get into the restaurant.“
According to the Jewish Forward
After the speech, two participants suggested, in private conversations with the Forward, that Jones’ joke might have been inappropriate. After all, making jokes about greedy Jewish merchants can be seen at times as insensitive.
A prominent think-tank source who attended the event said the joke was “wrong in so many levels” and that it “demonstrated a lack of sensitivity.” The source also asked: “Can you imagine him telling a black joke at an event of African Americans?”
Was the Joke Anti-Semitic? Well, the White House must have thought so.
The White House transcript sent to reporters after the event conveniently began a couple of minutes into the speech. The video of the event posted on the Washington Institute Web site started right after the joke, you can even hear the end of the laughter.
Its interesting that the same President that sees racism in the legitimate actions of the Cambridge Police and the State of Arizona, hides the anti-Semitic prose of its National Security Adviser.
I found the uncut video but couldn’t download it. So I contacted my friends at Breitbart and thanks to the folks at Breitbart TV, I was able to get my hands on the video of Jones’ comic delivery (if you cant see video below click here)

I don't doubt that the current administration is loaded with anti-Semites but this just a joke. I don't really see how sharp business practices against a well known enemy equates with some kind of existential "greed".
This joke would have exactly the same humor if the tie-seller had been Asian and the "customer" non-Asian or if the tie-seller had been a Yankee and the customer had been a summer-person.

If it is so harmless then nothing should be said about Black Jokes.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
