Looking at his remarks about the Irish, Italians and African-Americans, I'm not upset about it. And what he says makes sense - sorry to agree, but if the Soviets would have put Soviet Jews in gas chambers, how exactly is that an *American* issue? It's precisely as he says - a humanitarian issue, not an *American* one. I don't see anything wrong with him saying that. Probably he said plenty of impolite things about Arabs and others as well. I'm not too shocked, given the context.
