Obama, Muslims, and Jews

An important world event is coming up tomorrow, the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. But, of course, Barack Obama will not be attending. Obama would have the opportunity to honor survivors of the Holocaust and pay his respects as the Auschwitz ceremony will likely be the last one at which a great number of actual survivors are present, since most are in their 90s or over.
President François Hollande of France will be attending, as well as President Joachim Gauck of Germany, President Heinz Fischer of Austria, King Philippe of Belgium, King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands and Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark.
But the Holocaust Survivors were Jewish, were they not? So Obama instead is flying to Muslim occupied Saudia Arabia. Saudi Arabia’s regime likely represents the most extreme version of Shariah law in use in the Muslim world; it is a nation where beheading, stoning, and crucifixion are still used as forms of capital punishment.
This is who our President chose to honor over the brave survivors of one of the great horrors of the last century. Why are we not surprised?
