Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) recently spoke to a group of Jewish Americans in South Florida, joking about how one of the reasons she actually joined them… was to “meet” people, as well expressing her concerns about the “global war on terror,” and her disbelief that MSNBC and CNN would irresponsibly conduct biased reporting.

Wasserman Schultz correctly points out that Islamists hate Jews because “of who we are.”

Islamists hate Jews and everyone else that does not conform or believe in Islam. This is a known fact.

Every time we think that we can maybe ease back a bit and that their has been calm, we’re reminded that people hate us because of who we (Jews) are, and I don’t want to say that we are never safe because I don’t believe that’s true.-Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D)

Wasserman Schultz then broke with President Obama by calling out “Islamic fundamentalists” for “leading” the “global war on terror,” and saying that Jews are the reason why groups like ISIS are conducting terrorist attacks.

President Obama has of course refused to name Islamists as the culprits of the recent radical Islamic terror attacks.

Unfortunately what happens particularly with the global war on terror and the Islamic fundamentalists that are combating and leading it, we (Jews) are the crux of the reason that they are engaged in that fight.-Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Wasserman Schultz then recalls waking up one morning to MSNBC, and to her surprise, the network aired a biased “Palestinian perspective” and “panoramic view of the results of the war in Gaza.”

Clearly they were highlighting what is Israel had done to Gaza and the plight to Palestinians, and my first thought was, ‘Where is the balance where is the spotlight on what Jewish children in Israel go through from being victims of rocket attacks.’. The media’s coverage, its not just MSNBC, I’ve seen it on CNN and even in the broadcast media, as well…”-Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D)
