JNS.org – Politically conservative pundit Ann Coulter sparked controversy during Wednesday’s Republican primary debate by tweeting, “How many f—ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?”

Coulter was criticizing the numerous references to Israel and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made by the GOP candidates. Before the controversial tweet, Coulter tweeted about former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, writing, “Good Grief, Huckabee is running for prime minister of Israel.” She later also tweeted, “How to get applause from GOP donors: 1) Pledge to start a war 2) Talk about job creators 3) Denounce abortion 4) Cite Reagan 5) Cite Israel.”

Jonathan Greenblatt, national director of the Anti-Defamation League, said in a statement that Coulter’s “messages challenging the candidates’ support for Israel were offensive, ugly, spiteful, and borderline antisemitic. Her tweets give fodder to those who buy into the antisemitic notions that Jews ‘control’ the U.S. government, wield disproportionate power in politics, and are more loyal to Israel than to their own country. All decent Americans should reject Ms. Coulter’s rhetoric as simply beyond the pale.”

This is not the first time Coulter has been accused of antisemitism. In a 2007 interview on the CNBC network’s “The Big Idea,” Coulter told Jewish host Donny Deutsch that her dream is to see America be an entirely Christian nation, and that Jews should “be perfected, as they say” by converting to Christianity.

Christians United for Israel (CUFI) called Coulter’s latest tweets “completely inappropriate.”

“The U.S.-Israel relationship is both a moral and strategic imperative. There are tens of millions of Christians in this country who stand with the Jewish state. Perhaps Ms. Coulter has forgotten that Israel is America’s stalwart front-line ally in the war against radical Islam and that the Jewish state upholds the very values Americans hold dear,” CUFI said on Facebook.

  • This statement by Ann is used by Jewish liberals, both lay and professional, to hold to their mantra that conservatives are basically anti-Semitic which is a gross lie; the truth is given Jewish liberalism and their vote for Obama and the 2012 Democrat convention where the platform had to be amended and the Chair committed perjury saying 2/3 aye vote when the roar three times from the new left which now controls Obama’s Democrat Party was the sound of hate for Jews and Israel and Jerusalem because the new Democrats, the New Hard Left is devoted to Islam exterminating Israel.

    Could it be that she is ignorant of foreign policy debate?

    Ms. Coulter would gain some much needed status if she would quit messing with her f—ing hair so much whenever she sees a TV camera.
