American-Israeli Rabbi Compares Obama To Haman

 

 

 

 

‘ Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, chief rabbi of Efrat, on Saturday night compared US President Barack Obama to Haman and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Mordechai.

  Speaking at the Jerusalem Great Synagogue, the American-born Riskin said that he could not understand what was going through Obama’s mind.

“ The president of the United States is lashing out at Israel just like Haman lashed out at the Jews,” he said.

“ I’m not making a political statement,” he clarified, “I’m making a Jewish statement.” 
  When a woman in the audience shouted out that he was being disrespectful to the US president, she was booed by the crowd. Riskin said he didn’t need any help from the audience.

“ I am being disrespectful because the president of the United States was disrespectful to my prime minister, to my country, to my future and to the future of the world.”
