Ann Coulter offered her typical blustery two cents about the GOP presidential debate on Thursday, going as far to call out candidates for playing to all the “fu–ing Jews” — and generating an almost immediate social-media backlash.

Coulter then unleashed a flurry of tweets railing at the GOP candidates for overemphasizing Israel.


Popular conservative radio host Mark Levin responded to Coulter on Thursday.

Israeli media reacted as well, condemning Coulter’s attacks. Haaretz, a left-leaning paper, called Coulter arguably anti-Semitic.

“Controversial conservative pundit Ann Coulter posted a series of arguably anti-Semitic tweets at the tail end of Wednesday night’s Republican debate, accusing the candidates of pandering to Jewish voters, including one posing the hypothetical question of: ‘How many f—ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?’” the paper noted.

The Jerusalem Post also suggested that Coulter’s tweets hinted at anti-Semitism: “Ann Coulter, a controversial conservative political commentator, posted a series of what could be viewed as anti-Semitic tweets during the Republican presidential national debate on Wednesday night. ”

Coulter, a religious Christian, was widely criticized, including from the group Christians United for Israel.

“Ann Coulter’s tweets this evening concerning Israel were completely inappropriate,” spokesperson Ari Morgenstern said. “The US-Israel relationship is both a moral and strategic imperative. There are tens of millions of Christians in this country who stand with the Jewish state.”

The Anti-Defamation League also chimed in, calling Coulter’s comments “ugly, spiteful and borderline anti-Semitic.”

“While most of America has rightly tuned out Ann Coulter’s hyperbolic and hateful rhetoric, her irresponsible tweets during the Republican presidential candidate’s debate are truly a new low and must be called out,” ADL Director Jonathan A. Greenblatt said.

One thing is for sure —  Coulter isn’t likely to get an invitation to Prime Minister Netanyahu’s next Shabbat dinner.
