Obama Inspired Ship 'Audacity of Hope' to Join Gaza Flotilla II-good pal raised money
Human Events ^ | 06/04/2011 | Jim Hoft

Obama's good pal Rashid Khalidi raised money for the venture.

In 2008 The LA Times withheld a video that contained footage of Barack Obama celebrating with a group of Palestinians who were openly hostile towards Israel. Barack Obama reportedly even gave a toast to a former PLO operative, Rashid Khalidi, at this celebration. This was something the LA Times hid from the American public before the election. The media refused to release the video.

There were also reports that terrorists Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn were at the same Jew-bash.

Khalidi was thought to be connected to the PLO. Last year the anti-Israel radical raised cash for a ship named "The Audacity of Hope" to smash through the Gaza Blockade. Well they've finally raised enough cash and the American ship is set to joint this year's Gaza-bound “Freedom Flotilla 2” in June.


The "Audacity of Hop" will join other Islamists and Leftists is set to join the Gaza Flotilla II.

Israel National News reported:

A ship flying US colors and carrying 34 passengers is set to joint this year's Gaza-bound, IHH-sponsored “Freedom Flotilla 2” in June, the New York Times reported.

So-called “peace activists” on the first IHH flotilla in May 2010 ambushed Israeli naval commandos who boarded the ship in accordance with international law, attempted to take them captive, and seriously injuring several. The commandos were forced to kill nine aggressors in order to rescue their imperiled comrades.

This year's American vessel, named The Audacity of Hope after US President Barack Obama’s best-selling book, is being organized by an American group called “US Boat to Gaza.” Obama links to the Audacity do not end there, however. Prof. Rashid Khalidi, director of the Middle East Institute at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, and a friend from Obama’s time in Chicago, is among the supporters of an appeal launched by the group last week.

“We must raise at least $370,000 in the next month,” a statement on US Boat to Gaza’s Web site read indicating it doesn't have the money needed to sail yet. “These funds will be used to purchase a boat large enough for 40-60 people, secure a crew, and cover the licensing and registering of the boat. Together we will contribute to the great effort to end the blockade of Gaza and the illegal occupation of Palestine.”

Khalidi, an outspoken critic of Israel, garnered attention in 2008 when his friendship with Obama became a point of controversy during the US presidential campaign.

If Israel would issue a letter of marque and reprisal I’d be happy to raise funds to buy and outfit a ship that would make short work of these terrorists while making a nice profit from doing a good service for humanity.

Rashid Khalidi is that obnoxious, Jew hating Columbia professor, pal of obama’s and this is his flotilla.

Damn him, his supporters and the boat to hell and hopefully to the bottom of the sea on their maiden voyage.

Anyone who follows the actions of Barry Hussein Obama all these years & who still does not believe he is a Muslim has their head up their behind, IMO.

Do you think that Obama will get the message when this is the first boat sunk by the Israelis?

Be a shame if it collided with a torpedo.

Will it FLY the flag before or after Ayers stands on it?

......Abdul-Hakim Belhadj’s al-Qaeda links were widely reported in the Western press following his emergence as the military governor of Tripoli in August. But the Spanish press has shown particular interest in Belhadj and the other members of his jihadist network. This is because Belhadj is known to have had contact to Serhane ben Abdelmajid Fakhet, the leader of the terror cell that carried out the March 2004 Madrid train bombings, which took the lives of 191 people. Spanish police investigators discovered telephone records that document contacts between Belhadj and Fakhet just weeks before the attacks. ......
