JTA - A conservative Jewish publication may drop conservative political pundit Ann Coulter’s column in the wake of her tweet slamming GOP candidates for pandering to “f—ing Jews.”

The founder of the online “Jewish World Review,” Binyamin Jolkovsky, told the Daily Beast that he has personally reached out to Coulter but that she had not responded as of Friday.

Her latest column, that appeared on the website on September 17, a day after the CNN GOP candidates’ debate and her infamous tweet and follow-up tweets, included an editor’s note reading: “This column was prepared before the author’s anti-Semitic rant. JWR reached out to her and awaits her reply.”

Her column has been appearing on the website since 2000.

“She could have been drunk, she could have been high, I don’t know, I have to give her the benefit of the doubtbut I don’t have to delude myself,” Jolkovsky told The Daily Beast. “Pandering to Jewish money is about as anti-Semitic a stereotype as you could put forth. Her ‘eff-ing Jews’ comment is not identifying Israel—it’s identifying Jews, plural, and all Jews. There is no excuse for that. You can’t just wiggle out of something that vile and hateful.”

He said that this is the first time that Coulter has not emailed him back in a timely manner. He said that he has not yet decided whether to pull her column, but that many readers would like to see that happen.

Coulter defended her ” f—ing Jews” tweet saying “It’s not about Jewish people; it’s about Republican panderers.”

She later called her comments “pro-Semitic. Where is all the GOP pandering on Israel getting us? U.S. becoming Mexico very bad for Israel. ”
