Obama has joked more than once about using the IRS as a tool against his enemies; but as they say, behind every joke is that grain of truth.
Barack Hussein Obama has found a new way to torment American Jews and silence dissent regarding his cruel, pro-Muslim, pro-terrorist polices towards Israel: Refusing their advocacy groups tax-exempt status if they stand in opposition to the Obama Administration's agenda. His agent of fear? The 21 century version of the Gestapo, the Obama-run IRS:
A hawkish pro-Israel group today filed a lawsuit against the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service containing the explosive allegation that the IRS is devoting special scrutiny to pro-Israel groups whose policies conflict with that of the administration.
The group Z Street, intended as a conservative Zionist answer to the liberal J Street, says in its complaint that its counsel was informed that its status as a tax-exempt group was delayed, and could be denied, because of that scrutiny.
Agent Diane Gentry told the group's lawyer that the IRS is "carefully scrutinizing organizations that are in any way connected with Israel," the complaint, filed in federal district court in Pennsylvania, says. "Agent Gentry further stated to counsel for Z STREET: 'these cases are being sent to a special unit in the D.C. office to determine whether the organization's activities contradict the Administration's public policies.'"
UPDATE: E-mails IRS spokesman Bruce Friedland: "The IRS, by law, cannot comment on specific charities or even confirm whether a specific exemption request exists."
Unbelievable? Only to American Jews, who cannot even hear the canary in the coalmine frantically screeching its lungs out.
I'm sure, on the way to whatever fate Obama consigns them to, my fellow Jews will ask for absentee ballots, so as to vote for their favorite Democrats....
