Atlanta Jewish Times Owner Andrew Adler: Israel Should Consider Mossad Assassination of President Obama

The owner and publisher of an Atlanta-area Jewish newspaper has written a column suggesting that Israel should consider assassinating U.S. President Barack Obama.

Gawker reports that Andrew Adler, who’s owned the Atlanta Jewish Times since 2009, wrote a January 13 column in which he examined the purported conflict between the United States and Israel over how to deal with the perceived threat from Iran. Adler wrote that Israel has three options: attack Hezbollah and Hamas, attack Iran or “order a hit” on President Obama. It is unclear how that would help Israel with its Iran problem, althout an assassination would bring  self-proclaimed “Zionist” Joe Biden to power.

Writes Adler:

Give the go-ahead for U.S.-based Mossad agents to take out a president deemed unfriendly to Israel in order for the current vice president to take his place, and forcefully dictate that the United States’ policy includes its helping the Jewish state obliterate its enemies.

Yes, you read “three” correctly. Order a hit on a president in order to preserve Israel’s existence. Think about it. If I have thought of this Tom Clancy-type scenario, don’t you think that this almost unfathomable idea has been discussed in Israel’s most inner circles?

Another way of putting “three” in perspective goes something like this: How far would you go to save a nation comprised of seven million lives…Jews, Christians and Arabs alike?

You have got to believe, like I do, that all options are on the table.

Gawker’s John Cook contacted Adler for clarification on his shocking column. The latter’s tune changed when pressed; when asked if he was advocating Obama’s assassination he replied “of course not.” When asked if Israel should consider assassination an option, Adler said “no.”

Then why write a column in which a hit on the President is listed as one of three options for Israel?

“I wrote it to see what kind of reaction I was going to get from readers,” explained the owner of the paper which claims a circulation of 3,500.

“We got a lot of calls and emails,” he told Cook, who wryly remarked: “Nothing from the Secret Service, though. Yet.”


According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Adler has now apologized for suggesting Israel should consider killing Obama.

“I very much regret it, I wish I hadn’t made reference to it at all,” Adler told JTA on Friday.

    If this president were white this Jewish man would have most of America crying for the “Jew to be shipped off to Israel” (not a bad idea) but they are not. Go to the Fox News politics website…..the first 10 comments were from folks who agreed with the Jewish guys assessment that OUR President should be assassinated. I know the secret service will probably let this slide though.

    SORRY; what does that truly mean? You Mr. Adler said “a hit” against the president would “preserve Israel’s existence.” As a black man that has given most of my life for growth and prosperity for the State of Israel I feel extremely hurt from this quote as the owner of the Jewish Times. To express that the death of President Obama is beyond a mere SORRY! Yes; there should be options on the Iran issue, though; I fear your feelings towards President Obama are inexcusable. I will question your narcotic feelings in the future, YES; I think you need to apologize publicly to all Americans.

    I’m no longer an Obama fan (NDAA was the final straw for me), but can someone please tell me why ZioNazi Adler is not in jail and on his way to Gitmo?

    It’s not the job of the President of the United States to preserve the State of Israel or any other state. And if your going to make statements that call for the assassination of the President of the United States. Then this is TREASON and you should be hanged. I am a fan of President Obama and I’m a Fan of THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA !!!!!
