    National Review ^ | November 3, 2008 | By Andrew C. McCarthy & Claudia Rosett
    ‘It is this world … where white folks’ greed runs a world in need[.]” Barack Obama was writing his memoir, Dreams from My Father, and quoting his pastor, Jeremiah Wright. Wright is a racist proponent of Black Liberation Theology, a Marxist creed that depicts America as an imperial, terrorist, apartheid state. It was a black-separatist creed that Obama and his wife, Michelle, chose to make a core part of their lives. Year after year, they attended Wright’s Trinity Church. They contributed tens of thousands of their personal dollars to it — and Obama added tens of thousands more when he...
  • The New PLO? (Palestinians Love Obama)

    Will Palestinians have a "friend" in the White House if Barack Obama is elected president on Tuesday? Many supporters of the Palestinians think so or at least hope so. My advice to them: Don't hold your breath. Get too close to a Palestinian, or voice too much sympathy for his cause, it seems, and you're apt to be smeared as someone who is little better than a terrorist yourself. If you're an American politician whose middle name is Hussein, you really could be in for a hard time. Most of the evidence that Obama is an Arab lover, despite his...

    The sandbox ^ | 10/30/08 | Martin Kramer
    This post has several important updates. The first brings a passage from a 1978 New York Times report from Beirut, noting that Rashid Khalidi "works for the P.L.O." The third uncovers a passage from a 1976 Los Angeles Times report, also from Beirut, describing Khalidi as "a PLO spokesman." The fourth update, the most compelling, unearths a 1979 radio documentary on the PLO featuring Khalidi, in which he is repeatedly identified as an official PLO spokesperson in the Palestinian news service, Wafa. The interview was conducted at PLO headquarters in Beirut. The documentary may be heard in its entirety. —Martin...

    Maan News Agency ^ | Satursday, November 1, 2008
    Jericho – Ma’an – The head of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO)’s Negotiations Affairs Department met with one of US presidential candidate Barack Obama’s more prominent advisors in Jericho on Saturday. Saeb Erikat discussed updates on Palestinian-Israeli negotiations with Daniel Kerster, advisor to the American Democratic candidate. Pertinent to the talks was the inability of either side to reach a peace agreement by 2009, a responsibility that Erikat claimed belongs to Israel and its refusal to comply with commitments made on the Road Map for Peace. Erikat noted that the negotiations are a reflection of the interests of any party...

    An anti-American geyser erupted December 5 at a daylong Columbia University conference, entitled “US Imperialism in the 21st Century.” The university’s Center for Comparative Literature and Society and co sponsored the event with its controversial Middle East and Asian Languages and Cultures program to honor MEALC founder, the late polemicist Edward Said. [snip] Neither Columbia nor the taxpayer-funded TV and radio networks publicize Khalidi’s reverence for the memory of mass murderers like Black September terrorist Abu Iyad [1] or his support for violence: Palestinian society “comes through during these uprisings,” he said in October 2000. “It is civil society that...

    Washington Post ^ | October 31, 2008 | WaPo editor?
    WITH THE presidential campaign clock ticking down, Sen. John McCain has suddenly discovered a new boogeyman to link to Sen. Barack Obama: a sometimes controversial but widely respected Middle East scholar named Rashid Khalidi. In the past couple of days, Mr. McCain and his running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin, have likened Mr. Khalidi, the director of a Middle East institute at Columbia University, to neo-Nazis; called him "a PLO spokesman"; and suggested that the Los Angeles Times is hiding something sinister by refusing to release a videotape of a 2003 dinner in honor of Mr. Khalidi at which Mr. Obama...

    Many others have surmised that the Los Angeles Times is running interference for Barack Obama, declining not just to provide the tape of the Rashid Khalidi goodbye event which Obama attended in 2003, but a complete transcript. It is reasonable to ask what could have been so bad about the event. What could possibly have been so objectionable about the speeches or proceedings that might concern voters at this late date? Well, the original Times report gives us only the sketchiest account. But now we have a video of a complete Khalidi lecture from June 2007. It is quite an...

    The American Spectator ^ | 10.31.08 | Philip Klein
    The refusal by the Los Angeles Times to release the videotape featuring Barack Obama's farewell toast to Rashid Khalidi has thrust the Columbia University professor and activist into the center of the presidential campaign, creating particular interest in his ties to Yasser Arafat's Palestine Liberation Organization. Liberals have defended Khalidi as a "respected academic," and amid all of the political noise and accusations flying back and forth between the two camps, it's easy to see how some voters would tune out when conservatives refer to him as a former "PLO spokesman." But without engaging in the semantic debate over what...

    "Recently" I traveled up to the Campus of Columbia University to do some research on BHO's "missing years" as a student at Columbia College. This is my report (fwiw). I looked through every page of every issue of The Columbia Spectator published during bho's time on campus (Aug1981-Jun1983). No smoking guns. Nothing of any great immediate value BUT some interesting leads for further pursuit and some strange stuff to report... First, what I didn't find is almost as interesting as what I did find... * BHO is never mentioned in the paper during the period * No photographs of BHO...

    CNS News ^ | 10/29/08 | Patrick Goodenough
    Rashid Khalidi, the Columbia University professor whose friendship with Sen. Barack Obama is raising questions, says he was never a spokesman for the PLO, but his strong PLO leanings were evident at a time when Yasser Arafat’s group was mounting terror attacks in Israel and causing mayhem in Lebanon. And while Khalidi may not have been speaking on behalf of the PLO, during interviews he occasionally used the word “we” when speaking of the organization. In one 1981 interview, Khalidi referred to the exiled PLO’s growing standing among Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, saying “we have built up...

    JERUSALEM – The board of a nonprofit organization on which Sen. Barack Obama served as a paid director alongside a confessed domestic terrorist granted funding to a controversial Arab group that mourns the establishment of Israel as a "catastrophe" and supports intense immigration reform, including providing drivers licenses and education to illegal aliens. The co-founder of the Arab group in question, Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi, also has held a fundraiser for Obama. Khalidi is a harsh critic of Israel, has made statements supportive of Palestinian terror and reportedly has worked on behalf of the Palestine Liberation Organization while it...

Arnold Schwarzenegger describes Republican legislators as the “wild bunch” and, referring to a Latina lawmaker, casually says that “black blood” mixed with “Latino blood” equals “hot” – a fiery personality. The governor is heard on a six-minute recording, obtained by The Times, of a meeting with some members of his inner circle last spring. At the time, Schwarzenegger was struggling to persuade Republican lawmakers to embrace his plan to place billions...

On Tuesday, Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain launched a new commercial that puts scrutiny on Sen. Barack Obama's ties to terrorists.
