What kind of Jew is President Obama?

Mr. Obama is a frustrated man: "Obama's close advisor David Axelrod ... recalled Obama venting in a moment of contemplation, telling him, 'You know, I think I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office. For people to say that I am anti-Israel, or, even worse,  anti-Semitic, it hurts.'"

Clearly, Mr. Obama, while perhaps "the closest thing to a Jew," is not sufficiently Jewish to know that a Jew is a thing that comes in many forms. 

Isn't a member of J Street a Jew?  Of course – a Jew who condemns Israel for engaging in self-defense, and demands that Israelis do not respond to rockets fired at them from Gaza. 

Isn't a member of Jewish Voice for Peace a Jew?  Yes – a Jew belonging to the organization designated by the Anti-Defamation League as one of the top 10 anti-Israel groups in the U.S.     

Any such self-hating Jew is undeniably a Jew – but what's the use? 

What good is a Jew who is, to quote Mr. Obama, "anti-Israel, or, even worse, anti-Semitic"?

And what good does it do to Israel and the Jews to have in the White House the "next thing" to such a Jew?
