Atlanta Jewish Times Column Suggests 'Hit' on President

The publisher of a small Atlanta weekly is now drawing international condemnation for a column he wrote that goes far beyond merely criticizing the president.

In a Jan. 13 column in the Atlanta Jewish Times, owner and publisher Andrew Adler wrote that one of three options for Israel in dealing with the threat of a nuclear Iran could be to "take out a president deemed unfriendly to Israel." Adler said he wrote the piece “to get a reaction from the Jewish community.”

Andrew Adler told FOX 5’s Justin Gray that he wasn't advocating an attack on the president. “I apologize. I truly apologize if it comes across that way,” said Adler.dler said he will apologize to the president, to Israel and to his readers in the next issue of the Atlanta Jewish Times.

The Atlanta Jewish Times dates back to the 1920s. Andrew Adler bought it in 2009.
