Book Alleges Bush Said Jews ?Going to Hell?
According to rawstory.com, a forthcoming book alleges that Bush, while still governor, made anti-Semitic remarks to a reporter: ?You know what I’m gonna tell those Jews when I get to Israel, don’t you, Herman? I’m telling ’em they’re all going to hell.”
The Raw Story:
WAIT, BEFORE YOU GO…
The quip never received wider media attention, even though the Austin American-Statesman reported it in December of 1998.
“As he gazed out a hotel hallway at the Superdome and waited for an elevator, Bush — clearly going for a laugh at his own expense — said the first thing he was going to say to Israeli Jews was that they were all ‘going to hell,'” Herman had reported. “Bush, who has both a quick wit and generally good judgment on when to use it, made the comment to the same Austin American-Statesman reporter who had reported his 1993 comments about his religious beliefs.”
The authors of The Architect assert that religion and ethnicity have been manipulated by Bush and Rove to “divide” and “conquer” the nation. RAW STORY obtained a copy of The Architect late this week.
