Would this guy be in Gitmo if he were a Muslim?

This question was posed by the writer of another piece in reference to this:

Newspaper Editor: Israel Should Consider Assassinating Obama


Andrew Adler, the owner and publisher of the Atlanta Jewish Times, a weekly newspaper serving Atlanta's Jewish community, devoted his January 13, 2012 column to the thorny problem of the U.S. and Israel's diverging views on the threat posed by Iran. Basically Israel has three options, he wrote: Strike Hezbollah and Hamas, strike Iran, or "order a hit" on Barack Obama. Either way, problem solved!
Here's how Adler laid out "option three" in his list of scenarios facing Israeli president Benjamin Netanyahu (the column, which was forwarded to us by a tipster, isn't online, but you can read a copy here):

Three, give the go-ahead for U.S.-based Mossad agents to take out a president deemed unfriendly to Israel in order for the current vice president to take his place, and forcefully dictate that the United States' policy includes its helping the Jewish state obliterate its enemies.

Yes, you read "three" correctly. Order a hit on a president in order to preserve Israel's existence. Think about it. If I have thought of this Tom Clancy-type scenario, don't you think that this almost unfathomable idea has been discussed in Israel's most inner circles?

Another way of putting "three" in perspective goes something like this: How far would you go to save a nation comprised of seven million lives...Jews, Christians and Arabs alike?

You have got to believe, like I do, that all options are on the table.

It's hard to tell whether or not Adler is just some crank. But the Atlanta Jewish Times, which he purchased in 2009, appears to be a real community newspaper. It was founded in 1925 and, according to Wikipedia, claims a circulation of 3,500 and staff of five. To judge from its web site, it's a going concern.

A nervous Adler told me over the phone that he wasn't advocating Obama's assassination by Mossad agents. "Of course not," he said.

But do you think Israel should consider it an option? "No."

But do you believe that Israel is in fact considering the option in its most inner circles? "No. Actually, no. I was hoping to make clear that it's unspeakableógod forbid this would ever happen. I take it you're quoting me?"

Yes. "Oh, boy."

When I asked Adler why, if he didn't advocate assassination and didn't believe Israel was actually considering it, he wrote a column saying he believed that the option was "on the table," he asked for a minute to compose himself and call me back. He did a few moments later, and said, "I wrote it to see what kind of reaction I was going to get from readers."

And what was the reaction? "We've gotten a lot of calls and emails."

Nothing from the Secret Service, though. Yet.

UPDATE: Adler has told JTA that he "regrets" the column and plans to publish an apology. Oh, and the Secret Service says it will "make all appropriate, investigative follow-up in regard to this matter," according to ABC News.

Is GITMO for writers now? I thought we put dudes fighting in a war against us there? Of course I also thought Obama was gonna close it down ASAFP after the election...

This guy is an idiot, just like the idiot on CBS who did the 'snipers wanted' pic of Bush.

Meh.

Being President means you can't have a sandy vagina over some stupid asshole in a Jewish paper nobody gives a shit about.

This is several days old, and the reaction was much more fitting than publishing an apology. He resigned and he's selling the paper. Reaction from the American Jewish community, as well as in Israel, was swift and decisive, and he's gone.

Now then - would the Muslim community have taken care of it that way if he were Muslim? Wouldn't you say that's a fair question?

I think the Secret Service should crawl all over him. If something were to happen to our President, then you put his arse in Gitmo.

Gitmo is for enemy combatants that are actively plotting or waging violence against the US or our troops, not some idiot printing his stupid opinions.

Otherwise, we would have Gitmno full of people like Jason Whitlock.

There was a guy on the news the other day who had a picture of Obama in crosshairs on his facebook, and he said the Secret Service paid him a visit and interviewed him for a couple hours on his intentions. With the number of morons out there, I am sure the SS is working overtime with that type of stuff.

1- The question was not mine but from another Op-Ed piece on the subject. While that piece quickly drifted into a different discussion the title still posted the question. I think, in itself, it's a valid curiosity.

2- I'm well aware of the reaction from the Jewish community and respect it. In fact I had read the very link that you posted. But the devil's advocate in me also cannot dismiss the point that if Israel has historically engaged in covert operations and/or assassinations around the world (including the U.S.) they do not want some ideologue shmuck to draw attention to them. So what would they do? They'd disavow him just like that last sentence on the self-destructing tape Mr. Phelps always listened to.

3- The Muslim community is not under question here. Your bringing that up is only an attempt to deflect, and you are better than that. Leave that to the usual posters who keep bombarding this forum with those "Religion of Peace" threads. But to put you at ease, I would answer that if a Muslim writer proposed the assassination of a U.S. president, there WOULD be condemnation likewise from the community and leaders. Then I would of course take some of it with a grain of salt as well.

If every Muslim who called for the death of a US President was in Gitmo, we'd have to invade Cuba so we could enlarge the facility to size of the entire island.
