‘Anything that is against the survival of Israel, who is surrounded by enemies, and then act like everything is normal there, and that these (Jewish) people are paranoid, I think that’s anti-Semitic,’ says Republican candidate.

Republican presidential candidate and retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson accused President Barack Obama Sunday of being anti-Semitic, as evidenced by Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.

When asked what specifically is anti-Semitic in what Obama said,” Carson replied, “I think anything is anti-Semitic that is against the survival of a state that is surrounded by enemies, and by people who want to destroy them. And to sort of ignore that, and to act like everything is normal there, and that these people are paranoid, I think that’s anti-Semitic.”
Carson spoke out against the Iran nuclear deal in July, warning that it puts the “whole country in jeopardy” and represents “a complete lack of common sense.”
“It [the deal] doesn’t disassemble the nuclear infrastructure of Iran,” Carson charged. “It lifts the economic sanctions … It allows for arms dealing and ballistic missiles. And if we want to inspect something, it has to go through a committee on which Iranians sit, and on which the Russians sit.”
