I am thankful that he did resign. There is no way that these comments cannot be taken seriously. His comments were unnecessary and dangerous. We don't know how many unstable people will try to find a way to hurt our President.

The publisher of a Jewish newspaper has resigned amid intense pressure after writing a column suggesting that Israel consider assassinating President Barack Obama.

He continued, "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?"
