Pro-Palestinian-in-Chief (Obama's Ties to the Palestinians Are Deep)
National Review Online ^ | 5/26/2011 | STANLEY KURTZ

Posted on 05/26/2011 10:37:11 AM PDT by mojito

It’s time to revisit the issue of President Obama’s Palestinian ties. During his time in the Illinois state senate, Obama forged close alliances with the most prominent Palestinian political leaders in America. Substantial evidence also indicates that during his pre-Washington years, Obama was both supportive of the Palestinian cause and critical of America’s stance toward Israel. Although Obama began to voice undifferentiated support for Israel around 2004 (as he ran for U.S. Senate and his national visibility rose), critics and even some backers have long suspected that his pro-Palestinian inclinations survive.

The continuing influence of Obama’s pro-Palestinian sentiments is the best way to make sense of the president’s recent tilt away from Israel. This is why supporters of Israel should fear Obama’s reelection. In 2013, with his political vulnerability a thing of the past, Obama’s pro-Palestinian sympathies would be released from hibernation, leaving Israel without support from its indispensable American defender.

To see this, we need to reconstruct Obama’s pro-Palestinian past and assess its influence on the present. Taken in context, and followed through the years, the evidence strongly suggests that Obama’s long-held pro-Palestinian sentiments were sincere, while his post-2004 pro-Israel stance has been dictated by political necessity.

The L.A. Times should release the tape it has on Obambi and Rashid Khalidi - it won’t, but it Should. The MSM covers up for him.

Here are just a few of the bombshells in this article:

"To say the least, Rashid Khalidi is a controversial fellow. To begin with, although Khalidi denies it, Martin Kramer has unearthed powerful evidence suggesting that Khalidi was at one time an official spokesman for the Palestine Liberation Organization. Also, in the years immediately prior to his friendship with Obama, Khalidi was a leading opponent of the first Gulf War, which successfully reversed Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait. According to Kramer, Khalidi condemned that action as an American “colonial war,” insisting that before we could end Saddam’s occupation of Kuwait, we would first have to end Israel’s supposedly equivalent occupation of the West Bank and Gaza....

While we don’t know exactly when their friendship began, Khalidi was reportedly present at the famous 1995 kickoff reception for Obama’s first political campaign, held at the home of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.

If they have anything on him, they should create a cohesive picture of him and release it to an effective agent in the US.

Most Americans are still relatively ignorant as to who, Obama, really is and what he stands for.

I really believe that if we could get that video away from the LA Times, Obama would be history.

He is the anti president, the antithetical president.

Everything he does is for the death to America mentality.

For Americans to allow this is nothing more than suicidal.

Left to Obama, we will suffer Islamic overlords, but first there will be our destruction. That is the islamic mantra that he prays to 5 times a day.

We need a eviction party at the WH for the alien.

This is why Mossad, if they have anything, they need to release a file on the guy.

Mossad probably has a lot on him that we don’t know about.
If they choose to not let Americans know, it will be the Israeli government signing their own death warrant.

Yes, the mystery video that in the sage opinion of the Los Angeles Times was not important enough to reveal to the citizens during election time.

Obama move alarms Israel supporters (obama loves Hamas)
LA Times ^ | 4/26/09 | Paul Richter http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2238538/posts

“...If [she] finds this the equivalent of showing no mercy to the apostate, then I’d say she has the problem of moral equivalence, and would do well to meditate on the principle behind these rabbinic writings, “those who show mercy to the cruel will be cruel to the merciful.” Few sayings embody the dilemma of the kind-hearted liberal today, especially those whose hearts go out to Hamas and the people who voted for them.”

American Jews are either really easy to fool,or they just don’t give a damn about Israeli Jews.

Dem party always looking for new voters, specializes in low-income, telling them rich old white guys have everything rigged, you need to vote Dem, we're the people's party.

Dems also reach out to immigrants with the same message, as most are poor at first, they come from another country where they were controlled by rich and powerful, they haven't a clue about American history or founding, i.e., principles.

Millions of Jewish immigrants pour in from eastern Europe generations ago and become deeply loyal to the Dem party and they pass their mythology on to their children and grandchildren, who view this as "inside smart information" from their elders and don't begin to think about questioning it.

The mentality is that Jews and all poor immigrants have to "stick together", "do whatever it takes" to "make it" in America, since the "old money" has things "stacked against them". This develops into an acceptance of crime and corruption as part of "sticking together", with the excuse that government officials are corrupt themselves, so lawbreaking is their right. This mentality is not solely present in Jewish immigrants, but also Irish, Germans, Italians, etc. While most immigrants view American as a blessed opportunity for them to have a fresh start in a new country where they - or, in their view - their children can prosper, there are some that take the corrupt view, and they wind up pursuing, amongst many other things, organized crime and politics.

Dem party becomes increasingly infiltrated with communists over the last 100 years because of the unwavering support from unions, who are infiltrated rather openly with the international communist movement. The epicenter of this movement, coincidentally, is eastern Europe, namely, Russia.

Believing what their ancestors were told, American Jews think that American conservatives represent "old money" and a power elite, when, in truth, "old money" is extremely rare.
Old money:

* is diluted over generations as inheritence is divided amoungst children
* there is no such thing as an "inherited title" in America (other than the Kennedy family Democratic "camelot" political fame)
* land holdings of any size are rarely held by succeeding generations, since if the land is not profitably used property taxes render it almost always better to sell then hang on to, and inheritence taxes force liquidation unless the beneficiary has plenty of liquid assets
* children rarely exhibit the same ability to manage and grow assets as an original successful ancestor; only those who do can remain wealthy
* anyone who has significant wealth who is not corrupt finds political participation fraught with the potential problems of getting involved with a politician then realizing they are corrupt afterwards - it is far more common that they quietly donate to both parties establishment candidates and primarily focus on being left alone by the government than overreaching to try to influence it
* most millionaires obtain their wealth themselves and do not inherit it
* most investors and business owners take the rational viewpoint that the more wealth the citizenry has, the more profit can be made by investors and business owners, so the last thing they want to do is "hold down the poor"

IMHO, Rahm Emanual is a classic case of this paradoxical phenomenon: the political party of his family's history has drawn him to the point of being a powerful figure in that party, and yet that same party is, in fact, now controlled by the same diabolical menace that has always threatened his family's ethnicity and is now poised to precipitate a second holocaust on the state of Israel. He has literally joined his age-old enemy. It boggles the mind to imagine what he is thinking as anti-Semites are all around him in government, drawing up plans for another "final solution" to "wipe Israel off the map". Could it be that he has such dedication to communist principles that he now seeks the destruction of Jewish people - it would hardly seem that way, as he seems dedicated to Jewish causes. It is simply amazing, how it is so distasteful for him to admit the wrongs of the Dem party and that conservative principles are truly what is best for "the poor huddled masses", that he would help to sow the seeds of destruction for him and his people rather than simply acknowledge his mistake and join the right team going forward. I know that if one is caught up in sin, that reveals that one is not on the side of God, and, accordingly, one will hate the light of the truth. Those whom God is with have no fear of the truth, for they place their faith in God who is all-powerful and will never abandon his children.

Obama’s Friend Joins Campaign To Raise Funds For New Gaza-bound Ship
usanewsweek.com ^ | 7/26/10 | Staff
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2559109/posts

A fund raising campaign has been launched in the United States to garner financial support to purchase a ship in an attempt to breach the Israeli naval blockade at the Gaza Strip as early as autumn. The ship will be named after President Barack Obama’s popular book “The Audacity of Hope”.

Columbia University history professor {and Hamas supporter} Rashid Khalidi, a renowned critic of Israel and also a good friend of Obama, has joined the campaign.

PALIN ROARS!… Attacks Obama & LAT On Khalidi Tape– “If There’s a Pulitzer for Excellence in Kowtowing- The LAT Is Winning!!”
Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, October 29, 2008, 7:26 PM

PALIN SLAMS OBAMA & LA TIMES ON KHALIDI TAPE AT JEW-BASH!

Governor Sarah Palin slammed Barack Obama http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/10/29/campaign.wrap/ and the LA Times today for concealing a controversial video from the American public.
http://gatewaypundit.firstthings.com/2008/10/confirmed-msm-holds-video-of-barack-obama-attending-jew-bash-toasting-a-former-plo-operative-refuse-to-release-the-video/
The tape shows Obama toasting a former PLO operative at a 2003 Jew-bash in Chicago: http://gatewaypundit.firstthings.com/2008/10/newt-gingrich-blasts-la-times-for-suspiciously-suppressing-obama-khalidi-tape/

Palin demands the LA Times release the tape of Obama toasting former terrorist spokesman Rashid Khalidi. She calls the LA Times, “Obama’s pet newspaper.”

Here’s Sarah Palin on Obama’s latest radical friend in the news:

“It must be nice for a candidate to have major news organizations looking after his best interests like that… Politicians would love to have a pet newspaper of their very own. In this case we have a newspaper willing to throw aside even the public’s right to know in order to protect a candidate that its own editorial board has endorsed. And, if there’s a Pulitzer Prize for excellence in kowtowing then the LA Times– You’re winning!”

More… Doug Ross may have discovered two quotes from the Obama-Khalidi tape. http://directorblue.blogspot.com/2008/10/red-alert-tip-why-times-wont-release.html

Debbie Schlussel has more information on the suspected source for the LA Times’ article. http://www.debbieschlussel.com/4356/exclusive-ali-abunimah-is-likely-source-of-secreted-obamakhalidiayers-tape-la-times-wallsten-plagiarized-schlussel-back-in-april-said-politico/

I can just imagine how thick Mossad’s file is on ole Bammy!

I wish they'd release just a good chunk of it.

Maybe they will if Oburkha keeps trying to force Israel into genocidal borders and at the same time mocking all American's that even say our borders are dangerous or Israel's borders he suggests would be the spark that would make all Islam attack to kill, to push into the sea, ahh but God has another plan and it it the reason I just know Obama has never read the Bible through and through
