The Obama administration is defending the U.S. ambassador to Belgium and ignoring calls from many Jewish-American leaders to denounce the envoy for remarks they see as blaming Israel for anti-Semitism among European Muslims.
The U.S. ambassador to Belgium, a Jewish lawyer and son of a Holocaust survivor, created a firestorm of controversy over remarks widely seen as blaming Israel for anti-Semitism among Muslims in Europe.
Mr. Gutman also issued a statement Tuesday, saying he was "angered and saddened" by "baseless allegations that have appeared in the press."
"To watch the four years I have proudly served in Belgium smeared is devastating," he said. "I live on a beautiful park in Brussels that you walk through to get to many locations, and at no point have I ever engaged in any improper activity."
