Atlanta Jewish Times Publisher Resigns After Suggesting Israel Assassinate President Obama

Atlanta Jewish Times publisher and owner Andrew Adler came under fire last week after it was reported that he had written an editorial earlier this month suggesting that Israel assassinate President Obama. Adler’s column then drew the Secret Service’s attention. “We are aware of it. We are taking the appropriate investigative steps,” a Secret Service spokesperson said. JTA reports that Adler today announced that he will be stepping down. In an email, Adler said he is “relinquishing all day-to-day activities effective immediately.”
