BREAKING: Devastating Video Discovery-- Obama Associate Talks About His Pro-Palestinian Background
The Real Democrat Party ^ | 06/03/08 | Gateway Pundit

Posted on 06/03/2008 6:11:59 PM PDT by coffee260

Palestinian activist, Ali Abunimah, discussed Barack Obama’s overnight switch from Pro-Palestinian activist to supporter of Israel.

FOX News released this segment of the interview on Special Report with Brit Hume: video link



There is more of this video interview at Democracy Now!

Ali Abunimah is the co-founder of the online Pro-Palestinian publication The Electronic Intifada and the author of One Country: A Bold Proposal to End the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse.

Here is part of the transcript from the interview with Democracy Now from January:

AMY GOODMAN: Ali Abunimah, I wanted to ask you about the candidates in the United States. You’re speaking to us from Chicago, so let’s start with Barack Obama. The stances of the presidential Democratic and Republican candidates on the Israel-Palestine conflict. I can’t remember when in a debate they were asked about the mounting crisis there.

ALI ABUNIMAH: I don’t know if they’ve been asked in a debate, but whenever they have been asked, they have all gone out of their way to express full support for what Israel is doing. Barack Obama is not distinguished from the rest of the pack, except by for how far he has moved to try to appease AIPAC and pro-Israel movements.

I remember, Amy—I knew Barack Obama for many years as my state senator—when he used to attend events in the Palestinian community in Chicago all the time.

I remember personally introducing him onstage in 1999, when we had a major community fundraiser for the community center in Deheisha refugee camp in the occupied West Bank. And that’s just one example of how Barack Obama used to be very comfortable speaking up for and being associated with Palestinian rights and opposing the Israeli occupation. And just yesterday, he apparently sent a letter to Zalmay Khalilzad, the US ambassador at the UN, to urge the US not to allow any resolution to pass criticizing Israel and saying how Israel was forced to impose this barbaric medieval siege on Israel.

None of the other candidates in the mainstream have spoken out for Palestinian rights. The only ones who have taken forceful positions opposing the current US strategy are Dennis Kucinich on the Democratic side and Ron Paul on the Republican side. The mainstream are all perfectly comfortable with the war crimes that Israel is committing, no matter how much they talk about human rights elsewhere.

The Electronic Intifada reported earlier on how Obama suddenly learned to love Israel.

More… Shocker!! Obama took the endorsement of the Pro-PLO Socialist Party.

It appears dems don’t care that he is an anti-white, andt-Semitic, anti-American bigot.
The question is whether the rest of America will care either.

Again, this is something that will bring him closer to the far-left dems who vote in primaries... and send mainstream America away in droves.

So tell us Senator, when did you stop supporting radical Muslim causes?

So tell us Senator, why, when Palestinian terrorists were blowing up Israeli children with bombs, why did you speak out in favor of them?

So tell us Senator, since Saddam Husein gave $25,000 to every suicide/murder bomber's family, did you oppose the war in Iraq because it helped cut off funding to Palestinian terrorists?

Notice the comment in the You Tube Video Link by “ADsFiinesT” who writes:

“So basically you guys want a president who brushes off the palestinian people, doesnt care about them, and ignore them. You want a president who would rather see Americans die than see Israel in danger.”

He's going unopposed folks

Amy Goodman is a dried up communist whore who pays herself a 7 figure salary. She could drop of the face of the earth into the pit of hell and I wouldn't blink. I think it tells us something that the storm troopers of the Obama campaign have a cozy relationship with her.

http://kennethelamb.blogspot.com/2008/02/barak-obama-questions-about-ethnic.html

excerpt:

Here is the truth about Mr. Obama’s name, and his father’s ancestors:

True Negro tribal members of western Kenya where his father was born have Christian names, not Arabic. His father’s decision to name him with an Arabic name is a matter of his father establishing his ethnic identity in Africa - it is done deliberately to separate him from the African tribes. He may live among them, but he is not one of them. His father’s message is that he is Arabic, not Negro.

Many will find these truths unsettling. I’m often asked, “But I thought his father was Kenyan. How could Mr. Obama not be African-American, how could his ethnic composition be so Arabic?”

The definitive clue to that answer is to look at his name, his father’s name, and the names of all his ancestors on his father’s side. They are all Arabic.

Researching his roots reveal that on his father’s side, he is descended from Arab slave traders. They operated under an extended grant from Queen Victoria, who gave them the right to continue the slave trade in exchange for helping the British defeat the Madhi Army in southern Sudan and the Upper Nile region. Funny how circular is history; now the British again face the Madhi Army, albeit this time Shiite, not Sunni, as in nineteenth century Sudan.

But telling America’s black community that while their ancestors were breaking the shackles of slavery, Mr. Obama’s ancestors were placing those shackles upon their wrists would hardly play as an Oprah Winfrey best-seller.

He can run, but he can’t hide.

I just hope that the homespun Jews get the picture loud and clear. I for one will get it out there to as many of my Jewish friends as I can. Some are pretty leary of him but say they will probably will vote for him if nominated! Jeeze, I want to knock a knot on their heads and say what are you drinkin? Well, if elected he will throw Israel under that much crowded bus of his. IMHO
