Absolutely incredible; here's more evidence that "the Islamic extremists who monitor our resolve and remain vigilant for opportunities to attack innocent Americans are "hopeful" that Barack Obama will be elected as the next President" (HT). Remember, we're talking about these Palestinians, who now have 20,000 weapons to target Israel with:STEVE SAILER: Obama studied under Edward Said
Edward Said, the late Episcopalian Palestinian intellectual, whose 1978 book "Orientalism" launched "post-colonial studies" and did so much damage to scholarship by teaching a generation of students that studying non-Western cultures was racist and that the only acceptable activity was to interrogate what earlier Western scholars had said about non-Western cultures for proof of their racism, taught Barack Obama at Columbia in the early 1980s, according to the LA Times.GATEWAY: Obama Funneled Cash to Former PLO Operative's Anti-Israel Foundation
In 2000, Rashid Khalidi, a former PLO operative who justified Palestinian terrorism as contributing to "political enlightenment," threw a fundraiser for his friend Barack Obama.
Rashid Khalidi today is a professor at Columbia University and is a close associate of Barack Obama. Free Republic member No Quarter reported more on this relationship:
Khalidi has direct ties to Obama. These are not imagined. Before getting his job at Columbia University Rashid Khalidi was a Middle East professor at the University of Chicago, where he befriended none other than US presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama. In 2000 Khalidi held a successful fundraiser for Barack. I am not saying or inferring or suggesting that Obama did anything wrong in letting Khalidi hold a fund raiser. But I am willing to bet that it will become an issue in the general election. Barack also played a role in getting funding for Khalidi’s Arab American Action Network during his tenure on the board of the Woods Fund.
It's hard to forget what Obama said to one "Palestinian" blogger when running for Senator, ""Hey, I'm sorry I haven't said more about Palestine right now, but we are in a tough primary race. I'm hoping when things calm down I can be more up front.'LA TIMES:
[Obama's] presence at such events, as he worked to build a political base in Chicago, has led some Palestinian leaders to believe that he might deal differently with the Middle East than either of his opponents for the White House.
"I am confident that Barack Obama is more sympathetic to the position of ending the occupation than either of the other candidates," said Hussein Ibish, a senior fellow for the American Task Force on Palestine, referring to the Israeli presence in the West Bank and Gaza Strip that began after the 1967 war. More than his rivals for the White House, Ibish said, Obama sees a "moral imperative" in resolving the conflict and is most likely to apply pressure to both sides to make concessions.
"That's my personal opinion," Ibish said, "and I think it for a very large number of circumstantial reasons, and what he's said."
- ARABS MUSLIM KNOW THE REAL OBAMA: THEY KNOW HE'S THEIR ALLY.
- OBAMA IS FOOLING A LOT OF PEOPLE INTO THINKING HE'S MODERATE, AND ELECTABLE, AND EXPERIENCED ENOUGH TO BE POTUS.
- BUT YOU CAN'T FOOL ALL THE PEOPLE ALL THE TIME.
