GOP Slams Howard Dean for Calling Iraqi PM an Anti-Semite


By: Jim Kouri, CPP

Democrat Party chairman Howard Dean called the Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki an “anti-Semite” during an impassioned speech on Wednesday.

Dean’s remark stemmed from Al-Maliki’s refusal to condemn Hezbollah for their attacks on Israel. His address to Congress was boycotted by some Democrats and was criticized by others.

In front of a group of business leaders Dean said, “The Iraqi prime minister is an anti-Semite. We don’t need to spend $200 and $300 and $500 billion bringing democracy to Iraq to turn it over to people who believe that Israel doesn’t have a right to defend itself and who refuse to condemn Hezbollah.”

However, members of the GOP and conservatives were quick to point out that several members of the Democrat Party also refused to condemn Hezbollah and voted against a resolution to support Israel.

The Republican National Committee wrote: “It is incredibly troubling that Howard Dean would seek to score cheap political points by attacking the democratically elected prime minister of Iraq.”

Senator John Warner, chairman of the Armed Services Committee, told Fox News: “I dismiss Howard Dean. Really, he’s a disappointment, even to Democrats. I don’t care to deal with that.”

Al-Maliki was not the only person to have an accusatory finger pointed at them by Dean on Wednesday. Dean also had some words for President George W. Bush.

He shouted: “He [Bush] is always talking about those people. It’s always somebody else’s fault. It’s the gays’ fault. It’s the immigrants’ fault. It’s the liberals’ fault. It’s the Democrats’ fault. It’s Hollywood people. Americans are sick of that. Even if you win elections doing that, you drag down our country.”

However, a GOP strategist said: “Dean must be hallucinating. I haven’t found one statement by the president in which he blames gays, immigrants, Hollywood or others. However, Dean is the first to blame President Bush for everything. If Dean hits his head on his bathroom sink, he’ll blame Bush. The man is unstable.”

Talk show host and legal scholar Mark Levin said Thursday that Howard “Dr. Demento” Dean always plays politics with the Iraq war.

“Name one thing he’s done to help our troops. Name one thing he’s done to help us win in Iraq. Someone in the liberal media — he says he supports the troops — ask him how he supports them? Name one thing Dr. Demento has done to help win the war on terrorism.”

Rep. Cynthia McKinney, the most anti-Semitic member of Congress is being helped by Howard Dean in her reelection campaign, in spite of outrageous comments by her and her father, according to GOP analyst Mike Baker. He points to the campaign contributions she gets from several Muslim organizations that many in the news media ignore.

“Yet Dean hasn’t called her an anti-Semite, now has he?”
