The Republican Jewish Coalition has accused Retired General Wesley Clark of making anti-Semitic remarks

Matthew Brooks:

The Republican Jewish Coalition today strongly condemned “blatantly anti-semitic” remarks made by Retired General Wesley Clark in an interview with Arianna Huffington and urged the Democrat presidential aspirant to apologize.

In detailing his concerns about the prospect that America might respond militarily to Iran’s nuclear provocations, Clark argued that if such measures were taken, it would be the result of “pressure being channeled from the New York money people."

By prefacing the observation with a remark about “the Jewish community,” Clark made it clear to anyone who failed to read between the lines exactly which “New York money people” he had in mind.

RJC Executive Director Matthew Brooks responded: “This is yet another sign that the veiled and not-so-veiled anti-semitic sentiments that are rampant in the left-wing blogosphere are seeping into the ‘mainstream’ of Democrats’ political discourse.

“Wesley Clark owes American Jews an apology, and I sincerely hope Democratic leaders will join the RJC in urging him to retract his reckless comments.”

“The Jewish community will be watching carefully,” Brooks concluded.
