Obama's First Year: 'Brought Zionist Jews Into His Administration... to Monitor Them Closely'

In Al-Jazeera TV Debate on Obama's First Year, Former U.S. Senate Candidate Muhammad Said Al-Bourini, Says Obama 'Brought Zionist Jews Into His Administration... to Monitor Them Closely'; 'He Wanted There To Be Division Among U.S. Jewry – So That They Would Join Him and J-Street, and Confront... AIPAC'

On January 26, 2010, the first anniversary of the inauguration of U.S. President Barack Obama, Al-Jazeera TV held a debate on Obama's achievements in his first year of presidency. Participants in the oft-contentious "Opposite Direction" TV show were Kamal Chatilla, leader of the Lebanese "People's Popular Congress," and Muhammad Said Al-Bourini, a Palestinian-born doctor living in the U.S., who has run for the U.S. Senate several times and who was also a 2008 gubernatorial candidate for Washington State, under the name Mohammad Hasan Said.

Chatilla opined that Obama, "being black himself," had been brought to the presidency in order to topple the social and racial revolution that the U.S. was facing – a "color trick," as TV host Faysal Qassem phrased it. According to Chatilla, Obama could not be any different from his predecessor, George W. Bush, because "the decision-making in the U.S. is ruled by the oil cartels, the industrial powers, the large corporations, and... the Zionist lobby."

Al-Bourini pleaded Obama's case, saying that he "is a good man, down to the core of his being" and that "Obama has achieved things on the international front," in contrast to "some Arab leaders... surrounding Palestine." He took the opportunity to criticize Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, saying that he was "suffering from Alzheimer's." According to Al-Bourini, the reason Obama had brought Zionist Jews into his administration was "in order to monitor them closely, because he knew that they had tried to topple him from the outset," and that Obama wanted to sow division among U.S. Jewry, aligning himself with J-Street in order to confront AIPAC pressure. However, "as long as the Zionists control the media and Congress follows Zionism, Obama – or even ten Obamas – cannot do anything," he said, pleading to "give him a chance."

Following are excerpts from the debate.

Chatilla: "The Greatest Deception Is By the U.S. Administration"

Kamal Chatilla, leader of the Lebanese "People's Popular Congress": "Even if [Obama's] skin is black, we must never forget that his teeth are white. His teeth are white, not black. He is black, and his teeth are white. I don't know what his blood is. It is multi-colored, like the U.S. itself.

"But the greatest deception, in my view, is by the U.S. administration, which came [to power] after the image of the U.S. worldwide had become foul. It had problems with Russia, China, and Europe, and huge problems with the Third World, and especially with the Arab world.

"But domestically, the U.S. received an economic shock, as we mentioned. The U.S. is on the brink of a social revolution, a class revolution, as a result of the terrible poverty spreading within it, the economic crisis, and the bankruptcies. It is [also] on the brink of a racial revolution of the blacks.

"So they brought Obama in, in order to topple the social revolution, the class revolution, within the U.S., and to alleviate the racial tension, being black himself. He dealt with the first problem through the issue of health insurance, and as for the second problem – being black himself, he cannot be racist, at least vis-à-vis the U.S. itself.

"This is the deception they carried out, in order to thwart dangerous subversive efforts that the U.S. faced and will continue to face."

TV host Faysal Qassem: "In a nutshell, a year after Obama came to power – is he still different from his predecessor, George Bush, whom we demonized?"

Chatilla: Obama Can Be No Different From Bush

Kamal Chatilla: "He is no different from him, and he cannot be different. You can compare him to a driver who is experienced, but who drives according to the U.S. traffic laws. The oil cartel, the great industrial powers, the large corporations, and the lobbies – especially the Zionist lobby – are the [real] decision-makers in the U.S." [...]

Al-Bourini: "Obama... Achieves Things on the International Front"

Muhammad Said Al-Bourini, former Democratic candidate for Washington State governor: "How can we expect President Obama to be more Palestinian than the Palestinians, to be more Arab than the Arabs, and to be more Muslim than the Muslims themselves? Brother, I could remind you of things done by the Arab leaders – not all of them, but those who surround Palestine. Along comes Obama and achieves things on the international front. [...]

"Let me remind you of President Hosni Mubarak. In my opinion, nothing good will come of President Hosni Mubarak. In my letter to President Obama before his trip to Cairo, and from which he quoted extensively, I told him that this man [Mubarak] attacks Hamas, and that he is doing all these things because he is convinced that Hamas is part of the Islamic movement, which stands in the way of his bequeathing the rule to his son, Gamal. I told him that [Mubarak] is suffering from the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. The Egyptian people must use doctors to set up a committee to investigate this.

"This man, with all his opinions against Hizbullah, Iran, and Hamas, is running the country from Sharm Al-Sheik. It is as if Obama were running the U.S. from Miami Beach." [...]

Al-Bourini: "Obama Brought Zionist Jews into His Administration" to "Monitor Them"

Al-Bourini: "When Obama came [to power], they burdened him with terrible problems – economic issues, health issues, and so on. He brought Zionist Jews into his administration, and in my opinion, [this was because] he wanted to monitor them closely, because he knew that they had tried to topple him from the outset.

"He wanted there to be division among U.S. Jewry, so that they would join him and J-Street, and confront the Zionist pressure exerted by AIPAC. But he did not succeed."

 

Al-Bourini: If Obama Makes It to a Second Term, He Will Be Able to Work Miracles

Al-Bourini:" "Guys, give him a chance. Give him some breathing space. If he makes it to a second presidential term, he will be able to work miracles, but during the first term in power, there are huge difficulties that do not enable... The tragedies in America cannot be resolved by Obama pressing a button – like the Arabs do, and everything is resolved. [...]

"No American president – whether Obama or ten Obamas – can do anything, as long as the Zionists control the media, and as long as Congress follows Zionism. This is inconceivable. We need to change this, even a little. It can be done, guys." [...]

TV host Faysal Qassem: "Mr. Al-Bourini, you have heard what has been said about [skin] color. Don't you think that the primary reason for Obama's arrival on the scene – a year into his presidency – was to improve the image of America, as Mr. Chatilla said? This was, first and foremost, a color trick.

"They brought this man [to power] at a time when the reputation of the U.S. in the Arab and Islamic world was at its lowest point. Along comes this man and drugs us into a stupor, and makes a fool of us in Istanbul and in Cairo with his sweet-talk.

"On the one hand, he sweet-talks them, and on the other hand, he deceives them like a fox. What have we gained from this, other than being drugged into a stupor? He has made fools of us, and has made us forget about America's crimes against us – in Iraq, in Palestine, in Lebanon, and all these places.

"And you come along, singing his praises, and saying "Allah willing." Is there such a thing as

"Allah willing" in politics?"

"You Can't Send Him a Man to Blow Up a Plane Over Detroit; This Man They Sent Is Totally Ignorant, And Knows Nothing About Islam"

Muhammad Said Al-Bourini: "You have Obama the person, and you have Obama the politician. As a person, Obama is a good man, down to the core of his being, but you can't send him a man to blow up a plane over Detroit. This man they sent is totally ignorant, and knows nothing about Islam. This makes us regress dozens of years."

Even if (Obama's) skin is black, we must never forget that his teeth are white.

No, Joe Biden didn't say that.

Jews, who know and respect our history, our heritage, and those who love this country, refer to the thugs that surround Zero as KAPOS. That term describes a despicable Jew that turns on his brothers. Their God will judge them accordingly.

I watch Al-Jazeera TV when I’m overseas. It’s very interesting—a lot of times I forget and think I’m on BBC, which I also watch a lot overseas. They are not obviously anti-American. There are a lot of Americans who are interviewed, including US government officials. It’s really a lot more subtle than I thought it would be; i.e., what I have seen in 30 or 40 hours of viewing.

“a lot of times I forget and think I’m on BBC”

Very observant.

For years their has been a revolving door between BBC reporters and Al-Jazeera employees. They move back and forth.
