In US discourse it is normally considered anti-Semitic to suggest that individuals are appointed to senior positions because they are Jewish, or represent the Jewish community.
We'll suggest it anyway.
Jacob (Jack) Lew, an Orthodox Jew, will be taking over as the White House Chief of Staff, a position considered to be closest to the President’s ear.
Did Obama appoint Lew as a signal to jewish money and influence that he is on board with all things Israel or was he just the best man for the job?

Rumors of replacements for Lew at the Office of Management and Budget include more Wall Street insiders and Clinton administration retreads including Joshua Gotbaum who played a part in the 9/11 cover-up and money scam as CEO of the September 11 Fund or maybe Goldman Sachs boy, Tim Geithner counselor, CFR member, economic terrorist Gene Sperling. Both are good crime team members.
We talked about Lew back in July of 2010. Nothing much to add except that whether Obama wins or loses this year, Lew will probably get to light the White House menorah one more time.
