Rabbi Marc Schneier, the Rabbi most likely to wind up in a newspaper story and least likely to accomplish anything usefull, has been appointed by Olmert to head Kadima USA, to promote the foreign wing of an Israeli political party.
Rabbi Marc Schneier is a publicity hound famous for his Foundation for Ethnic Understanding and appearing in numerous ads with former drug dealer, rapper and Louis Farrakhan supporter, Russell Simmons. When the ADL criticised Simmons promotion of Farrakhan's Million Man March, Simmons blasted back warning the ADL that they would trigger even more Anti-Semitism.
Simmons attempt to recreate himself as a kindler gentler and tolerant figure is particularly ironic considering that it was his label Def Jam Records that was behind the group 'Public Enemy' which continued to trade in explictly Anti-Semitic lyrics with songs such as 'Swindler's Lust.' His political organization Hip-Hop Summit Action Network is headed up by a top Farrakhan associate. He has called Louis Farrkhan a saint, promoted him widely and his Def Poetry Jam has featured the son of Amiri Baraka who accused the Jews of being responsible for 9/11 and Suheir Hammad whose work is filled with lyrics supporting terrorism.
Rabbi Marc Schneier however hasn't limited himself to promoting just one Anti-Semite. He also accompanied the mastermind of the Crown Heights Pogrom, responsible for at least two murders, Al Sharpton on a trip to Israel and tried to legitimize Jesse 'Hymietown' Jackson. Rabbi Marc Schneier has played a significant rolethem and now Olmert has drafted him to help legitimate Kadima, a party illegally appointed to power under a leader who was indicted for corruption and continues to be the target of several criminal investigations.
Rabbi Marc Schneier has a record of having no compunction in collaborating with any figure no matter how repugnant, e.g. O.J. Simpson lawyer Johnnie Cochran was a trustee of his foundation, along with the aforementioned Simmons and celebrity pr specialist, Ken Sunshine. Now 'Rabbi' Schneier joins his fellow shameless careerists in Israel in prostituting himself for the support of a corrupt borderline criminal organization.
