Obama's National Security Adviser Tells Joke About a "Taliban Warrior" and the "Jewish Merchant" - Video
Here is video of President Obama's National Security Adviser - Gen. James Jones - telling a bizarre joke about a "Taliban warrior" and a "Jewish merchant." He told the joke as he began his remarks at a Washington Institute For Near East Policy.
Yid with Lid believes the joke to portray Jews as "greedy merchants," and it unquestionably is a joke that plays into the stereotypes about Jews as businessmen.
Be sure and read Yid's entire analysis, but he points out that the White House transcript on the event begins AFTER the joke, and so does the video of the speech posted by the Washington Institute.
That would seem to indicate they were very uncomfortable with the joke.
