Barack Hussein Obama the anti-Semite

Samantha Power

"No one has done a better job than Ed Lasky ( Barack Obama and Israel ) of exposing the extent to which some of Barack Obama's foreign policy advisers are anti-Israel, not to mention dangerously misguided about the Middle East. Here, Lasky and Richard Baehr (Samantha Power and Obama's Foreign Policy Team ) discuss various attempts to explain away aspects of this problem. Readers will agree, I think, that these efforts are exceedingly lame.

One Obama adviser who's especially difficult to explain away is Samantha Power, about whom I've written here, here, and here. Power, whose views are virulently anti-Israel and none too warm towards American Jews, is no fringe or passive member of the Obama team. Power left a position at Harvard to work for Obama for a year after his election to the U.S. Senate and is now identified as a "senior foreign policy advisor." She is actively involved in the Obama campaign. And, tellingly, Lasky and Baehr say it was Obama who sought out Power, not the other way around.

Perhaps Obama can explain which of Powers' views (as documented by Lasky and Baehr) make her so attractive to him. Is it her view that the Jewish lobby pushed us into war with Iraq (a view that even Walt and Mearsheimer are no longer willing to defend)? Is it her view of Israelis as war criminals whose tactics the U.S. mimics to its detriment in Iraq? Is it her outrage at the way Israel treated the U.N.'s faux peacekeepers in South Lebanon, the ones who stood by while Hezbollah gained a dominant position and used it to commit aggression against Israel? Perhaps it's simply her willingness to embrace virtually every slander of Israel that can be dredged from the fever swamp, and the hatred of that State this willingness reflects.

Ali Abunimah, a well-known Chicago-based activist for Palestinian causes, says that Obama has apologized to him for not being more up-front in his support for these causes, and has expressed the hope that this will change once the constraints of running for office are out of the way. With key advisers like Power in the wings, Obama looks like a good bet to deliver on his audacious hope should Americans be foolish enough to elect him president. "

Wild Thing's comment.......

Betwen this information and the things we already know about Obama's church, and what his minister spews about his hate for Jews and Israel, it looks bad for Israel as our friend if Obama gets elected. Obama is bad news on all levels and this just adds to all the other things about him that make him a dangerous man.

Why is that everyone hates Israel and America?
We haven't done anything wrong. That land was given to Israel after WW2 so they'd have a homeland and they won it back during the 6 days war. It's theirs, not Palestines, not Lebanons, not Americas--theirs.
I could not vote for a person who is so biased as to hate someone for their religion. I don't hate Obamanation, but I sure don't like him very well. I guess it's too hard to hypnotize me.
Oh well, I'm sure he'll get over it.

Obama is racist, socialist/communist, anti-Jewish, muslim, anti-patriotic, and yet the sheep love him. Their mesmeration with him is as self destructive as a lemming migration to the sea cliffs.

Considering Obama's wife's statement yesterday should raise red flags in everyones mind. These people hate this country and want to change it to their own perverted image.

She has never had an occasion to be proud of this country until her moslem husband decided to run for President ? She is an idiot. But this is what the left wants to hear.

It is still early and no one has a Nomination wrapped up for either party. The left wing losers will certainly vote for this POS but hopefully the rest will come to their senses.

McGovern had a similar ground swell in 72 and Nixon of all people cleaned his clock. So it aint over til its over.

Dallas today. People lined up early to see Obama. 18,000 packed a convention center. Others were turned away. At the same time a few dozen or so showed up to see Chelsea Clinton campaign for her mother.

Romans 11 and Psalms 122 says basically those who support Israel will be blessed by God Himself and those who do not will perish.... It's that simple and Bush #43 and Condi Rice had better start reading God's WORD - period - and not just saying that they do!

Lynn I don't understand it really either. The hate some have for America and Israel seems to run so deep with the people that feel like that and I don't get it.

Tom...."Their mesmeration with him is as self destructive as a lemming migration to the sea cliffs."

Excellent way to put that!!!
