Kuhner's latest anti-Obama tirade: Obama is a "cultural Muslim" who is "betraying the Jews"

In his latest display of Obama Derangement Syndrome, Jeffrey Kuhner wrote in a July 8 Washington Times op-ed that President Obama is "betraying the Jews" and that Obama "is a cultural Muslim whose sympathies lie with the Islamic world in its life-death struggle against Israel."

From Kuhner's July 8 op-ed:
President Obama is betraying the Jews. He is a cultural Muslim whose sympathies lie with the Islamic world in its life-death struggle against Israel. Unless American Jews wake up and speak out against Mr. Obama's pro-Arab, anti-Israel policies, the Jewish state faces a possible nuclear war -- and even annihilation.
Mr. Obama is the anti-Bush. He is virulently anti-Israel, championing appeasement toward radical Islam. The reason lies in Mr. Obama's background and worldview - one that makes him uniquely unqualified to prosecute the war on terror.
During his youth, Mr. Obama was raised and educated as a Muslim. His father and stepfather were Muslims. When Mr. Obama attended a Catholic school in Indonesia, he was registered as an Indonesian citizen and "a Muslim." In public school, he was also identified as practicing Islam. Under the name "Barry Soetoro," he was compelled to take daily Islamic religious instruction, recite prayers, study the Koran and learn Arabic. His former classmates and teachers remember him as a devout Muslim.
In short, Mr. Obama seeks to coddle the Islamic world. The result is that Iran is on the verge of acquiring the bomb. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad -- like all fanatics -- is a serious man. He vows to slay the Jews of Israel once and for all. Mr. Obama is not some grand peacemaker. Rather, he is a naive, foolish leftist who - blinded by his ideological and cultural blinkers -- is playing right into the blood-soaked hands of America's enemies.
