President-Elect Obama's Palestinian Buddy Rashid Khalidi sat down on the Radically Left radio show Democracy Now. You might remember Khalidi, it was a tape of his "Going Away Party" Featuring Barack Obama the LA Times refused to release during the campaign. Khalidi has been described as the former PLO Spokesman. Calling him a spokesman is like saying Jabba the Hut has a slight weight and/or slimy skin problem.
As Reported by WND:
Khalidi director of the official PLO press agency WAFA in Beirut from 1976 to 1982, while the PLO was based in Lebanon and committing scores of anti-Western attacks and was labeled by the U.S. as a terror group. Even though Rashid Khalidi at times has denied working directly for the PLO but Palestinian diplomatic sources in Ramallah told WND he indeed worked on behalf of WAFA and was an adviser the Palestinian delegation to the Madrid Conference in 1991. During documented speeches and public events, Khalidi has called Israel an "apartheid system in creation" and a destructive "racist" state [see a video of one of Khalidi's hate speeches at the end of this post
Khalidi is a SUPPORTER of Palestinian terror, calling homicide bombings response to "Israeli aggression." He dedicated his 1986 book, "Under Siege," to "those who gave their lives ... in defense of the cause of Palestine and independence of Lebanon." Critics have described the book as excusing Palestinian terrorism.
Rashid Khalidi sat down with leftist wackos Juan Gonzalez, and Amy Goodman to talk about Gaza and Obama's Mid-east policy. Below are excerpts:
