Retired Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, the executive vice president of the social conservative group Family Research Council, was caught on mic Thursday at the National Security Action Summit joking that “the Jews are the cause of all the problems in the world” in response to an interview request by Israel National News. He also said President Obama was using “subliminal messages” to send signals of support for al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood. “If you understand anything about Islam, there are subliminal messages,” Boykin said. “His message, really, I believe was, ‘I understand you, and I support you.’” Therefore, he said, al Qaeda and the Brotherhood know “that they have a president that identifies with them, that has been supportive of them inside the United States, and is unwilling to go against them.” The summit is held by Frank Gaffney for speakers who are not allowed to participate in CPAC. Gaffney has accused CPAC’s organizers of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. The panel featuring Boykin had its video feed shut down, but the audio continued being broadcast, catching Boykin’s remarks.
