LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): Well, those types of slogans, of course, have been chanted and posted since after October 7th. Huh. What took him so long? Joining us now is Dennis Prager, radio host, founder of Prager U, one of my absolute favorite people in America. Dennis, you do such a great job every day. I'm so excited to talk to you. What about his approach today and should we assume it's heartfelt and he's standing strongly with Jewish Americans?

DENNIS PRAGER (GUEST): So I'll have an answer for you that you probably won't expect. I don't care about heartfelt in almost anything except perhaps, you know, my children and my wife and my closest friends. In life, what people do is much more important than what their heart feels. So, I am happy if he says these things whether or not they're heartfelt. All I can tell you is what he won't say and I want to salute him for what he did say, okay? I'm not a fan of his. But it's critical to give credit where it is due. 

But, what he won't say is where all of this Jew hatred comes from. And it comes from only two sources, the left, not liberals, the left, I always make a distinction and the newest generation of immigrants from Muslim countries, not long-time Muslim residents of the United States who go back many generations like neighbors of mine who are terrific human beings. But, this newest wave of Jew-hating Muslims, and there are Muslims who don't hate Jews, but they're a minority. And he won't say that. He won't say where it's from.

So, it's like -- isn't one of the first things we want to know when somebody is murdered who did it? Isn't who did it a very important consideration? The who did it has not been addressed here. It's the people who have taken over his party, the left and this new Ilhan Omar type Muslim immigrant to the United States who brought with them from the Middle East a hatred of Jews that we have not known since the Holocaust and the Middle Ages.
