Obama: African-Americans Have a ‘Special Empathy’ for the Jewish People

Tuesday in an interview with Ilana Dayan for Israel’s Channel 2 “Uvda” TV show, President Barack Obama said he believes the “direct line between the the Jewish experience and the African-American experience,” means African-Americans have a “special empathy and a special regard,” for the Jewish people.

When asked about a suspended, controversial proposal to segregate Palestinians from Jewish settlers on West Bank buses, Obama said, “In my mind there is a direct line between the the Jewish experience and the African American experience. And as a consequence we have I hope a special empathy and a special regard for those who are being mistreated because of the color of their skin or the nature of their faith.”
