She believes Obama poses a threat to Israel not only because of his support of radical Islamic groups such as Hamas, but also because of his “radical socialist” policies, that will bring the United States to “totalitarianism and Stalinism.” According to Taitz, these policies “pose a threat to all democracies, not only Israel.”
Since her explosive MSNBC appearance, the “birther” movement has largely faded, supplanted by the health care debate and a new, more-vocal stream of detractors swarming the town hall meetings on health care, leaving Taitz and her movement as yesterday’s news; outside of Israel that is.
Over the last two weeks, Taitz has been featured in a segment on Channel 10 television’s popular nightly news show “London and Kirschenbaum,” filmed a segment for the far-right Arutz 7 Web site and recorded a show for their radio channel, was featured in a three-page article in mass circulation daily Ma’ariv, and was the subject of a feature on Channel 1 TV.
Israel’s Russian press has also taken notice, and interviewed Taitz for a feature for Russian radio and Israel’s Russian-language Channel 9. Taitz will also be the subject of a lengthy article in “Vesty,” Israel’s largest Russian-language newspaper.
