Obama names Eric Schwartz to religious freedom body


U.S. President Obama named Eric Schwartz, a dean at the University of Minnesota, to the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom.

ed note–so, what we have here is someone deeply imbedded with organized Jewish interests being named to head a department whose job is to ‘monitor’ religious freedom around the world. 
What this means is that it will be his job to report on instances where Jews are being ‘persecuted’ (read ‘prosecuted) so that sanctions and pressure can be put on those countries where it is taking place.
Rest assured there will be NO reports whatsoever of the manner by which Israel infringes on the religious rights/sensibilities of Christians and Muslims in the West Bank and beyond. In effect, this is a way of sending a message to countries around the world that the Commissar Schwartz is watching them with regards to the way they handle ‘Jewish issues’ in their country, and if they want to stay on the good side of Uncle Sam and Old Aunt Israel, they better watch their step.
Schwartz, who is on the boards of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society and the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas, was among several appointees announced Thursday.
Schwartz is the dean of the Humphrey School of Public Affairs and previously served for two years as assistant secretary of state for population, refugees and migration.
He also served as the UN secretary general’s deputy special envoy for tsunami recovery from 2005 to 2007. Schwartz was chief of office in Geneva for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, an independent body that tracks religious freedoms overseas, has members appointed by leadership in both houses of Congress and by the president.
