Richard M. Nixon is long dead and continues to be unpopular, so the release of more of his secretly recorded tapes—this time, he has crude, racist remarks about blacks, Jews, Italians and the Irish—won't hurt him one bit.
But the still very much alive (and still very much Jewish) Henry Kissinger might want to comment on his words after Golda Meir left a warm meeting with Nixon. Nixon was unmoved by Meir's plea that the U.S. urge the Soviet Union to allow Jews to emigrate to avoid persecution, but Kissinger stated:
"The emigration of Jews from the Soviet Union is not an objective of American foreign policy. And if they put Jews into gas chambers in the Soviet Union, it is not an American concern. Maybe a humanitarian concern."
