Ann Coulter Wants Jews to Become Christian! Is That Anti-Semitism?

by Dr. D ~ October 17th, 2007

The latest Ann Coulter furor all began on the CNBC show “The Big Idea” when host Donny Deutsch asked Ann what America would look like if her dream for the country was actually fulfilled. She responded that America would be better off if the whole country was conservative and Christian. Then Deutsch, who is Jewish, asked her if she wanted to get rid of Judaism and Coulter responded: “We just want Jews to be perfected.”

Then all heck broke loose as Ann Coulter found herself once more in the center of a major controversy. Deutsch himself was offended by her comments. Then the Anti-Defamation League condemned her along with the Simon Wiesenthal Center and many other Jewish leaders. The National Jewish Democratic Council predictably called for a boycott of her books and asked the TV networks to cease putting her on their shows.

In many ways this is a tempest in a teacup. Most of these groups oppose Coulter’s political views and find this controversy as a convenient way to discount and diminish her influence. While I don’t personally care for her penchant for making outrageous statements and stimulating needless controversy, her life and actions have never shown her to be against the Jewish People. On the contrary, she has always been an ardent supporter of Israel.

I believe that Commentator Dennis Prager is correct when he says in a column– “So What?”:

“There is nothing in what Ann Coulter said to a Jewish interviewer on CNBC that indicates she hates Jews or wishes them ill, or does damage to the Jewish people or the Jewish state. And if none of those criteria is present, how can someone be labeled anti-Semitic?” …

“As a practicing Jew, I do not agree with Ann Coulter’s theology any more than those attacking her do. But I am neither offended by her nor frightened by her or her beliefs. She believes that Christianity is better than Judaism. So what? Why is that in any way different from liberals thinking that liberalism is truer and morally superior to conservatism? Or conservatives thinking that their values are superior to liberal values?”

Comments: It is a fact, that Evangelical Christians believe that the world would be a better place if everyone became a Christian. Does that make all of us Anti-Semitic? Hardly! As a group, Evangelicals are among the greatest supporters of Israel and many would undoubtedly face death protecting Jews from persecution and harm.             *Top
