Obama’s new anti-Semitism envoy blasts Amb. Oren’s treatment of J Street
Hannah Rosenthal, Obama’s new anti-Semitism envoy, is very straightforward in her criticism of Ambassador Michael Oren treatment of J Street. Her interview in this morning’s (December 24) Haaretz is also an implicit critique of the Israeli approach to anti-Semitism and is worth reading in full.
Remarks by Israel’s ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, against the liberal Jewish lobby J Street were “most unfortunate” according to Hannah Rosenthal, head of the U.S. administration’s Office to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism [...]
[Rosenthal] said she believed Oren “would have learned a lot” if he had participated in J Street’s conference.
