Rahm Emanuel not going to clean floors

rahm-israel-emanuel“Obviously he will influence the president to be pro-Israel. Why wouldn’t he? What is he, an Arab? He’s not going to clean the floors of the White House.”
 
–Benjamin Emanuel, quoted in Israeli newspaper Ma’ariv article “Our Man in the White House” about his son Rahm Israel Emanuel being appointed Barack Obama’s White House Chief of Staff.

Before Israel’s creation, Benjamin Emanuel fought with Irgun Zvai Leumi (IZL), a Zionist terrorist group. The family’s last name was Auerbach, but changed in honor of an uncle named Emanuel, who died in 1933 in a “skirmish with Arabs.” Benjamin Emanuel told the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz that Rahm was named after “Rahamim,” a hero of the Lohamei Herut Israel (LHI), aka the Stern Gang. Those organizations were responsible for the bombing of the Kind Davis Hotel, then headquarters of the British forces, and the Deir Yassin massacre.
