Finally, A Moral Equivalency Obama Doesn’t Like

Much has been made of President Obama’s “on the other hand” transition, in his speech yesterday, from the Holocaust to the travails of the Palestinians. Some thought that he implied a kind of equivalence. But the appalling Tom Brokaw reminded us that it could have been worse when he asked Obama about his visit to Buchenwald on the Today Show this morning:

BROKAW: What can Israel learn from your visit to Buchenwald? And what should they be thinking about their treatment of Palestinians?”

OBAMA: “Well, look, there is no moral equivalency here.”

Brokaw should be ashamed of himself, but we’ll take what we can get from Obama. The notion that Israelis, many of whom either moved to that country after being liberated from camps like Buchenwald or are the children of those who did, could learn something from Obama’s half-hour at Buchenwald is more than a little insulting. After all, Obama knows so little about what happened there that the first time he recounted his Uncle Charlie’s participation in the camp’s liberation he set the story at Auschwitz. Allahpundit also notes the “interview was conducted in Dresden too, ground zero of the neo-Nazi revisionist moral equivalence movement.” WEEKLY STANDARD
