GEORGE BERES : Many Jewish Appointees Get Ominous

VALERIE JARRETT OBAMA'S CLOSE AIDE

This Article has in the body an impressive list of jewish-americans in the Federal Administration. More than anyting, it illustrates the significant talents in their ethnicity.

But it also is ominous when one considers the pivotal role Israel has in the Middle East wars, and the way Israeli money controls our elected officials, and the loyalty most who are of Jewish ethnicity have toward Israel, especially those in government.  No question that we profit from their talents.  But we need also be constantly aware– as Israel continues to get corrupted assistance from the U.S.– that this pool of Jewish-American talent in government can be significant in maintaining and expanding Israel’s negative influence in our foreign policy.

Since the article source is Jewish, it is obvious that Jewish groups recognize this advantage, and are prepared to exploit it.
How would we react if there were an equal number of Arabs in the Administration?  Or Germans?  or Russians?
We are a great melting pot.  But the pot has one excessive ingredient at the top that could be dangerous.

Presidential Aide Valerie Jarrett Discloses Her Jewish Roots

By Nathan Guttman

VALERIE JARRETT OBAMA'S CLOSE AIDE

The White House can add one more senior staffer to its list of advisers with Jewish roots, and it is an unlikely name. Valerie Jarrett, President Obama’s senior adviser and assistant for intergovernmental affairs and public engagement, disclosed her Jewish ancestry to a Jewish gathering on Monday. Speaking on behalf of the administration at the annual plenum of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, Jarrett, who is African-American, told the story of the first Passover seder she attended as a child.

“Many, many years ago, my parents hosted a seder for a group of our Jewish friends, and it was here that my father first told me that my great-grandfather was Jewish. What a wonderful surprise for our friends, and for me! So Passover has always been a special holiday for me.”

She went on to talk about the seder held by Obama’s Jewish staffers while on the campaign trail in 2008 and how Obama, after being elected, lived up to his promise to hold a Passover seder every year at the White House.

The Obama White House has lost several of its top Jewish staffers recently, with the departure of presidential chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, senior political counselor David Axelrod and chief economic adviser Lawrence Summers. It did gain, however, Jacob Lew, an Orthodox Jew, as director of the Office of Management and Budget.

In her speech, Jarrett reassured the Jewish audience that as the Arab world goes through historic changes, President Obama will work to ensure that “the region evolves in a way that advances American interests, including peace between Israel and her Arab neighbors.” She stressed, however, that just as the status quo in the Arab world proved unsustainable, so is the case with the Israeli — Palestinian peacemaking. A similar message was delivered last week by senior adviser Dennis Ross at the J Street conference.

Obama himself told members of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations that advancing the peace process remained an urgent priority at a meeting on March 1.
