Another county heard from. Rahm Emanuel's father, who was in the terrorist organization the Irgun, talking to the Israeli press:
In an interview with Ma'ariv, Emanuel's father, Dr. Benjamin
Emanuel, said he was convinced that his son's appointment would be good
for Israel. "Obviously he will influence the president to be
pro-Israel," he was quoted as saying. "Why wouldn't he be? What is he,
an Arab? He's not going to clean the floors of the White House."
The Ma'ariv article also quoted Dr. Emanuel as saying
that his son spends most summers visiting in Tel Aviv, and that he
speaks Hebrew, but not fluently.
Gosh, why was I worried?
