There’s an old Yiddish saying…
Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me for 3 years with one Jew-bashing incident after another, shame on me.
The Maccabeats, a group of Yeshiva University students, stormed on to the scene last year with their “Candlelight” song, a Chanukkah themed video produced by Uri Westrich. The video was a great success and currently has over 5,000,000 hits.

Recently, the group was invited to the White House to perform for the president. They were very excited. But when they returned home and later posted video of their performance for the president they were asked to remove the video.
It was probably just another coincidence.
The American Thinker reported:
Mysteriously, the Office of the President has requested that a video of a Jewish singing group performing at the White House be removed from the web. Matzav.com reports:
Matzav.com, in the Featured Video section, recently presented a video of the famed Maccabetas singing group performing for President Barack Obama at a reception in the White House in honor of American Jewish Heritage Month, the month of May. American Jewish Heritage Month pays tribute to the American Jews who have helped form the fabric of American history, culture and society.
As part of the entertainment at the event, the Maccabeats were invited to sing several songs. They also did an impromptu acapella chant, with beautiful harmonies, of “Four More Years,” which was the video posted on Matzav.com.
The Office of the President, however, has asked that the video be removed from the internet and Matzav.com has acceded to that request.
It is not clear, though, why the Office of the President found the harmless, innocuous video of the Jewish acapella choir performing to President Obama’s applause problematic.
Hat Tip Petra
Maybe Obama didn’t want his Muslim supporters to see it, huh?
