Publisher of Atlanta Jewish Times resigns January 24, 2012, eleven days after his editorial advocating Mossad assassinate Barack Obama

Andrew Adler suggested three options available to Israel: launch a pre-emptive war against Hamas and Hezbollah, attack Iran's nuclear facilities or "order a hit on the president in order to preserve Israel's existence."  (Adler's despicable column was discovered by Gawker.)

Of course, Adler has been condemned by the leaders of many prominent Jewish lobby and advocacy organizations.  He is also said to be under investigation by the Secret Service.  Nonetheless, this story has remained below the radar screen in much of the so-called mainstream media.  The NYTimes referred to the incident on January 24, 2012.

Adler offered a televised apology, which prompted one editorialist to note that it was a little sad to see a grown man cry.  Considering that Adler urged the assassination of the President of the United States, the only thing that we should be sad about is that Adler is still at-large.  He is lucky not to be a Muslim, wouldn't you say?
