Simon Wiesenthal Center Denounces Ann Coulter's Anti-Semitic Presidential Debate Tweet

September 16, 2015

"Ann Coulter asks, 'How many f---ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?' and then blithely dodges Fox News' direct challenge of her gratuitous anti-Semitic slur."

"Disgusting," charged Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a leading Jewish Human Rights NGO, reacting to Coulter's Tweet during last night's Republican debate.

"And if a simple, "I am sorry" is beyond the reach of the  vocabulary of this noted wordsmith, then perhaps she has unearned her spot among top tier political pundits," Cooper concluded.
