      US Ambassador Blames Israel for Anti-Semitism

      Howard Gutman, the US ambassador to Belgium, recently stated that Israel is to blame for the growing anti-Semitism at a conference hosted by the European Jewish Union. He reportedly said that Muslim hatred for Jews stemmed from the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

      Gutman was a major fundraiser for President Obama's 2008 campaign, raising $500,000 for Obama. As a D.C. attorney, he personally gave $2,300 to the Obama campaign.
