Barack Obama is a clever fellow who imbibed hatred of America with his mother's milk, but worked his way up the elite ladder of education and career. He shares the resentment of Muslims against the encroachment of American culture, although not their religion. He has the empathetic skill set of an anthropologist who lives with his subjects, learns their language, and elicits their hopes and fears while remaining at emotional distance. That is, he is the political equivalent of a sociopath. The difference is that he is practicing not on a primitive tribe but on the population of the United States.

Anti-Semites Rally for Obama

by Steven Plaut
29 February 08

The Tenessee Republicans have published here* a report on the anti-Semites who support Obama. It includes:

'On Sunday, Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan on Sunday likened Obama to a new messiah, calling him “the hope of the entire world.” That’s the same Louis Farrakhan who has a history of making openly anti-Semitic statements, calling Judaism a “gutter religion,” and suggesting that crack cocaine might have been a CIA plot to enslave blacks. Farrakhan, addressing 20,000 people at the annual Savior’s Day celebration in Chicago, praised the Democrat presidential candidate, calling Obama “The hope of the entire world that America will change and be made better.” He also compared Obama to the founder of Islam, remarking that both had a white mother and black father, according to the Associated Press. “A black man with a white mother became a savior to us,” Farrakhan said. “A black man with a white mother could turn out to be one who can lift America from her fall.”'

In addition, 'alongside Obama was current University of Illinois-Chicago professor William C. Ayers, who was a member of the Weathermen terrorist group which sought to overthrow of the U.S. government and took responsibility for bombing the U.S. Capitol in 1971.'

A Dialogue on Revolution

By Prof. Paul Eidelberg

American: You Israelis never cease to amaze me. Since Oslo you have suffered more than 10,000 casualties—Jewish men, women, and children killed, wounded and maimed for life. Yet you do nothing. Your government expelled 10,000 Jews from their homes in Gaza and northern Samaria and turned this land over to your enemies, yet you do nothing. Kassam missiles fall on Sderot and Ashkelon, and still you do nothing! Why haven’t you people rebelled and thrown your cowardly government out?

Israeli: Just a minute. We like to believe Israel is a democracy; so if the public is not happy with the government’s policies, we need only wait for the next election and change the prime minister or party in power.

American: But don’t you see it makes no difference which party or party leader is in power: you are still retreating toward your indefensible 1949 borders. Americans would never tolerate this state of affairs. Certain Mexican nationalists are now making territorial claims on Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California—once Mexican territory. If the American government yielded any part of this land to Mexico, rest assured there’d be a revolution.

Israeli: But you forget we are Jews, and for a Jew to shed the life of another Jew—inevitable in a revolution—is simply out of the question. Look at what happened after Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated. This was a national trauma from which we are still suffering.

American: Trauma? Tens of thousands of Jewish children are suffering the trauma of suicide bombings. But let me go back to my Mexican example. Suppose year after year a few hundred square kilometers of the increasingly Mexicanized American southwest were returned to Mexico, and that thousands of Anglo-Saxon Americans were expelled from their homes each month. We Americans would be up in arms, animated by the revolutionary zeal of those who signed our Declaration of Independence. Let me quote a few passages from that document:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.—That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.—That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and provide new Guards for their future security.

American (continued): Perhaps some will say that these immortal words do not justify a revolution in Israel. It seems to me, however, that your government’s 15-year failure to put an end to the murder of Jews by Arab terrorists is surely a “long train of abuses.” All your talk about democracy deceives only children. What say you to this?

Israeli: Look, all that you say about revolution may be true when applied to America and perhaps other countries. As concerns Israel, however, you have to bear one obvious and one not so obvious thing in mind. Since the government obviously controls the army, the police, and the intelligence services, your proposed revolution would be nipped in the bud. Less obvious is this: even if ten thousand or more Jews were to march on the Knesset and had the wherewithal to withstand water-canons and tear gas, this would only lead to a civil war. So all your talk about revolution is futile. We Jews are a long-suffering people. Indeed, to endure suffering is part of our nature. We have had inept and wicked rulers before. Nevertheless, we have survived, and we shall survive those who now betray us in the deceitful name of “democracy.”

American: But how many Jews must perish before you take your future into your own hands instead of behaving like sheep led to the slaughter? Don’t you realize that, sooner or later, the Arabs called “Palestinians” will obtain biological or chemical weapons of mass destruction? Don’t you see that your government’s policy of self-restraint vis-à-vis Arab terrorists means that your prime minister and the wimps in his cabinet are willing to tolerate the on-going murder of Jews, and that this cheapening of Jewish life can only make the Arabs more determined to annihilate you? Don’t you see that if you don’t stop this government now Israel is doomed?

Israeli: You speak as if we are threatened by another holocaust!

American: That’s right, but this time you will have no one but yourselves to blame for such a catastrophe.


The American Declaration of Independence concludes with these words:

“And For the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

Divine Providence? What? In the secularized State of Israel?

“Lives?” Whose lives? The people of Sderot?

“Fortunes?” Whose fortunes? Shimon Peres’s?

“Honor?” But honor is the first casualty of Democracy!

[color emphasis mine. lw]


It applies to Israel as it does to the United States. In both countries, you have the Right on one side and the Left with the Islamics ("Palestinian" Arabs in the case of Israel, Islamic infiltrators among the population and inside the most sensitive Departments of the government: e.g. State, Defense, Homeland Security, in the U.S.A).

Obama and Gun Rights

from Jews Against Obama

Shamelessly stolen from Vilmar

Looks like the guy so many swoon over wants to take away your guns…….while simultaneously having a soft spot for criminals. (Isn’t that so like liberals?)

On guns:

In his answers to the 1998 Illinois State Legislative National Political Awareness Test, Obama said he favored a ban on “the sale or transfer of all forms of semi-automatic weapons.”
By definition, this would include all pistols ever made, from .22 target pistols used in the Olympics to rarely-fired pistols kept in nightstands and sock drawers for the defense of families, and every pistol in between. Obama’s strident stand would also ban all semi-automatic rifles and shotguns, whatever their previously legal purpose.

In 1999, Obama proposed to make it a felony for the gun owner if a firearm stolen from his residence and used in a crime was not “securely stored” - effectively negating the homeowner’s right to self-defense.

On going soft on criminals:

Let’s also note that Obama opposes mandatory minimum sentencing, and was given a rating of 75 by the National Criminal Justice Association in 2005, which is the bare minimum to qualify for a “mixed” record on crime; 74 or lower is deemed a “soft on crime” record by the organization.

Obama and the Jews
marc zell, THE JERUSALEM POST Feb. 21, 2008
Less than two weeks before the critical primary elections in Ohio and Texas, Democratic voters have made it very clear: Barack Hussein Obama is for real.

Leading in the popular votes cast, delegates pledged and total delegates (meaning principally the back-room machers euphemistically referred to as "superdelegates"), Obama has a decent chance to become the 2008 Democratic candidate for President of the United States. Obama has become a rallying point for millions of disgruntled voters who yearn for a new style of politics in the world's greatest democracy.

Since the Republican race is all but over and Senator John McCain will likely win the nomination of his party in Minneapolis in early September, it is not idle speculation to consider an Obama-McCain contest in the November general election. Such a contest has potentially enormous consequences for Israel and the Jews.

It is no secret that Obama's candidacy has been supported financially and politically by many prominent members of the American Jewish community. Even previously outspoken Clinton-supporting spokespersons for Democrats Abroad here in Israel have been hedging their bets recently in articles and interviews, suggesting that an Obama Administration would augur well for Israel. Incredibly, citing unenthusiastic, canned pro-Israel campaign statements, these dyed-in-the-wool Democratic sycophants would urge Jewish voters to cast their fate and Israel's with Obama rather than with the Republican candidate, McCain.

With all due deference to the Obama celebrity supporters like Steven Spielberg and George Soros, can Jews herein Israel and in America and other friends of Israel risk a vote for Obama in November? A quick look at the facts should switch on a big red light in most peoples' minds.

First and foremost among the considerations that should trouble friends of Israel is the foreign policy team Obama has selected to advise him. The composition of a candidate's advisory panel is usually a very good indicator of where the candidate will come out on the issues if elected.

This was the test this writer applied to George W. Bush in 2000 at a time when most pundits in Israel and in the Jewish community predicted that his Middle East policy would be a carbon copy of his father's, meaning trouble for Israel. But Bush, the son, had selected a blue-ribbon team of pragmatic and conservative advisors whose views on the Middle East were markedly pro-Israel and pro-democracy. Subsequently, the W. Bush Era became among the closest allies of Israel in her 60-year history.

The opposite is the case with the Obama team. Headed up by Jimmy Carter's ("Israel is an apartheid state") national security advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Obama's team includes such problematic figures as Anthony Lake, Robert O. Malley and Susan Rice.

One commentator, citing an article by the staunchly left-wing Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, has noted that an Obama presidency including a foreign policy team that included the foregoing and their ideological soul-mates, "would likely have an approach towards Israel radically at odds with those of previous Presidents (both Republican and Democrat)" and is the candidate apt to be "least supportive" of Israel.

Brzezinski has been disseminating vitriol about Israel for three decades and recently publicly defended the Walt-Mearsheimer study which concluded that US policy towards Israel was the result of Jewish pressure and inconsistent with American interests. More recently Brzezinski called for the US to initiate dialogue with Hamas, described Israel's action in the Second Lebanon War as a killing campaign against civilian hostages and earlier this month made a trip to confer with Syria's President Assad, ostensibly unbeknownst to the Obama campaign.

Robert O. Malley, another former Carter Administration diplomat and President Clinton's special advisor on Arab-Israeli affairs, is an unabashed advocate for the Palestinians, co-authoring a spate of anti-Israel propaganda with former Arafat advisor, Hussein Agha, including a tract that blames Israel for the failure of the 2000 Camp David talks and another piece which blames the Bush Administration for continuing Israeli-Palestinian strife.

And then there is Susan Rice, foreign policy advisor to the ill-fated John Kerry presidential campaign in 2004, where she concocted the idea of solving the Middle East problem by appointing none other than Jimmy Carter and James Baker as negotiators, an idea which was later repudiated by her own boss as being unbalanced against Israel. Nor are these the only "bad apples" in Obama's foreign policy bin…

Another problematic indicator is candidate's close association with Jeremiah Wright, Jr., pastor of the Trinity United Community Church (a member of the United Church for Christ, which itself has been rebuked for anti-Israel bias), who is well known for his virulent anti-Israel remarks, including a call for a divestment campaign against Israel for the "injustice and the racism under which the Palestinians have lived because of Zionism."

Nor should bring much solace to Jewish voters and friends of Israel that Reverend Wright counts among his closest friends, the nefarious anti-Semite, Louis Farrakhan for whom Judaism is a "gutter religion" and Jews are "bloodsuckers." Obama could have picked any one of hundreds of churches in Chicago's South Side; he picked Jeremiah Wright's parsonage, which awarded Farrakhan with the Jeremiah Wright Lifetime Achievement Trumpeteer Award in 2007. And Wright's church is the single largest beneficiary of Obama's charitable giving. Even Jewish columnist Richard Cohen of the Washington Post felt compelled to ask Obama to clarify his relationship with these anti-Jewish and anti-Israel community leaders, questioning why Obama has stayed steadfast in his allegiance to Pastor Wright over the years.

Obama is only a first-term senator and has therefore only participated in a handful of votes that bear upon Israel and the Middle East. He also has a penchant for missing controversial votes where he would have to put his personal policies in the public record. However, his public statements on a variety of issues present a number of troubling issues for Jews and friends of Israel. Here are a few samples:

1)Obama openly advocates outreach toward and diplomatic engagement of Iran even though Iran has recently referred to Israel as a "filthy bacteria" and has repeatedly called for the annihilation of the Jewish State, including recent hints that this will be accomplished by a nuclear attack

2) "Nobody has suffered more than the Palestinian people."

3)"[T]he creation of a wall [referring to Israel's security fence] dividing the two nations is yet another example of the neglect of this [the Bush] Administration in brokering peace… ."

4)"I am opposed to the cynical attempt by Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz and other armchair, weekend warriors in the administration to shove their ideological agenda down our throat." [note that only Jews are singled out despite the fact that the policies in question were promoted by the entire Administration]

5)"Reverend [Al] Sharpton is a voice for the voiceless, and a voice for the dispossessed. What [Reverend Sharpton's] National Action Network has done is so important to change America, and it must be changed from the bottom up." [National Action lead a protest against the Jewish owner of Freddy's Fashion Mart in New York in which picketers, sometimes joined by Sharpton himself, repeatedly screamed epithets about "bloodsucking Jews" and "Jew bastards."]

Obama was the only Democratic candidate who said the onus was on Israel to change its policies vis-à-vis the Palestinians in order to achieve peace.

Barack's problematic and unrecanted public statements and associations raise enough serious questions that should cause Jewish voters and friends of Israel to think twice about supporting him in November.

But there is one other troublesome factor that voters in the Democratic primaries have thus far failed to credit seriously, viz.: Obama aspires to become president of the greatest democracy and still the only remaining superpower on the planet, having held a senate seat for less than five years and having had no previous administrative or national experience.

While it may have suited Democratic voters to cast their votes for Obama during the primaries as a protest against the Democratic political establishment (much as they did in 2006 to deny (now Independent) Senator Joseph Lieberman the nomination of his party for the Senate seat from Connecticut), one would like to think that the American electorate will again demonstrate its maturity and seriousness during the General Elections in November 2008, when their votes really count.

The Presidency in this day and age is no place for a neophyte, however charismatic. Those of us Americans who live in the Jewish State clearly understand what is at stake and what kind of risk Obama poses to the region and the world. There is every reason to hope that our compatriots in the United States and friends of Israel and freedom generally would agree.

Obama raised funds for Islamic causes
Speeches for Palestinian refugees called code for Israel's destruction

By Aaron Klein
© 2008 WorldNetDaily

JERUSALEM – Sen. Barack Obama has spoken at fundraisers for Palestinians living in what the United Nations terms refugee camps, WND has learned.

Palestinians have long demanded the "right of return" for millions of "refugees," a formula Israeli officials across the political spectrum warn is code for Israel's destruction by flooding the Jewish state with millions of Muslim Arabs, thereby changing its demographics.

In a conference call last month with Jewish and Israeli media aimed primarily at dispelling Internet reports he is anti-Israel, Obama stated "Palestinian refugees" belong in their own state and do not have a "literal" right of return to Israel.

"We cannot move forward until there is some confidence that the Palestinians are able to provide the security apparatus that would prevent constant attacks against Israel from taking place," continued Obama during the conference with Jewish journalists.

But in the 1990s Obama was a speaker at events in Chicago's large Palestinian immigrant community to raise funds for U.N. camps for the so-called Palestinian refugees.

(Story continues below)

Ali Abunimah, a Chicago-based Palestinian-American activist and co-founder of Electronic Intifada, a pro-Palestinian online publication, recalls introducing Obama at one such event, a 1999 fundraiser for the Deheisha Palestinian camp in the West Bank.

Abunimah is also a harsh critic of Israel and has protested outside pro-Israel events in the Chicago area.

"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," stated Abuminah during an interview last month with Democracy Now!, a nationally syndicated radio and television political program.

"I remember personally introducing [Obama] 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," Abunimah said.

Abunimah also was recently quoted saying that until a few years ago, Obama was "quite frank that the U.S. needed to be more evenhanded, that it leaned too much toward Israel."

Abunimah noted Obama's unusual stance toward Israel, commenting "these were the kind of statements I'd never heard from a U.S. politician who seemed like he was going somewhere, rather than at the end of his career."

'Critical of U.S. bias toward Israel'

Abunimah previously described meeting with Obama at a fundraiser at the home of Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi, reportedly a former PLO activist.

"[Obama]came with his wife. That's where I had a chance to really talk to him," Abunimah recalled. "It was an intimate setting. He convinced me he was very aware of the issues [and] critical of U.S. bias toward Israel and lack of sensitivity to Arabs. ... He was very supportive of U.S. pressure on Israel.

According to quotes obtained by Gulf News, Abunimah recalled a 2004 meeting in a Chicago neighborhood while Obama was running for his Senate seat. Abunimah quoted Obama telling him "warmly" he was sorry that "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," Abunimah reportedly quoted the senator as saying.

Abunimah said Obama urged him to "keep up the good work" at the Chicago Tribune, where Abunimah contributed guest columns that were highly critical of Israel.

Obama's campaign headquarters did not reply to an e-mail request seeking comment on his fundraising activities for Palestinians.

Abunimah serves on the board of the Arab American Action Network, or AAAN, a controversial Arab group that mourns the establishment of Israel as a "catastrophe" and supports intense immigration reform, including providing driver's licenses and education to illegal aliens.

WND reported yesterday the Woods Fund, a Chicago-based nonprofit on which Obama served as a paid director alongside a confessed domestic terrorist, provided $75,000 in grants to the AAAN.

The co-founder of AAAN is Columbia's Khalidi, who held a 2000 fundraiser for Obama. Khalidi, a harsh critic of Israel, has made statements supportive of Palestinian terror and reportedly has worked on behalf of the PLO while it was involved in anti-Western terrorism and was labeled by the State Department as a terror group.

'Very active' terror apparatus

Obama's 1999 fundraising for the Palestinian Deheisha camp raised the eyebrows of one senior Israeli security official who was contacted yesterday for comment on the issue. The official, who was not aware of Obama's fundraising, noted Deheisha, which is located near the city of Bethlehem, had a "very active" Palestinian terror apparatus in 1999, carrying out scores of deadly shootings against Israeli civilians that year.

Two of the most deadly suicide bombings in 2002 also were planned from Deheisha, where the suicide bombers originated, said the security official. On one such bombing, in March of that year, 11 people were killed and over 50 injured, four critically when a Deheisha bomber detonated his explosives next to a group of Jewish women waiting with their baby carriages for their husbands to leave a nearby synagogue.

The question of so-called Palestinian refugees is a sensitive one for supporters of Israel. All Israeli prime ministers have stated a final peace deal with the Palestinians cannot include the "return" of "refugees."

When Arab countries attacked the Jewish state after its creation in 1948, some 725,000 Arabs living within Israel's borders fled or were flushed out when the Jewish state pushed back attacking Arab armies. Also at that time, about 820,000 Jews were expelled from Arab countries or fled following rampant persecution.

While most Jewish refugees were absorbed by Israel and other countries, the majority of Palestinian Arabs have been maintained in 59 U.N.-run camps that do not seek to settle those Arabs elsewhere.

There are currently about 4 million Arabs who claim Palestinian refugee status with the U.N., including children and grandchildren of the original fleeing Arabs; Arabs living full-time in Jordan; and Arabs who long ago emigrated throughout the Middle East and to the West.

Other cases of worldwide refugees aided by the U.N. are handled through the international body's High Commission for Refugees, which seeks to settle the refugees quickly, usually in countries other than those from which they fled.

The U.N. created a special agency – the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, or UNRWA – specifically to handle registered Palestinian refugees. It's the only refugee case handled by the U.N. in which the declared refugees are housed and maintained in camps for generations instead of facilitating the refugees' resettlement elsewhere.

The U.N. officially restricts the definition of refugee status worldwide for nationalities outside the Palestinian arena to those who fled a country of nationality or habitual residence due to persecution, who are unable to return to their place of residence and who have not yet been resettled. Future generations of original refugees are not included in the U.N.'s definition of refugees.

But the U.N. uses a different set of criteria only when defining a Palestinian refugee – allowing future generations to be considered refugees; terming as refugees those Arabs who have been resettled in other countries, such as hundreds of thousands in Jordan; removing the clause requiring persecution; and removing the clause requiring a refugee to be fleeing his or her "country of nationality or habitual residence."

Palestinian leaders, including Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, routinely refer to the "right of return," claiming the declared right is mandated by the U.N. But the two U.N. resolutions dealing with the refugee issue recommend that Israel "achieve a just settlement" for the "refugee problem." The resolutions, which are not binding, do not speak of any "right of return" and leave open the possibility of monetary compensation or other kinds of settlements.

Obama worked with terrorist

Obama's advocacy on behalf of Palestinians comes after WND reported yesterday the presidential candidate served on the board of the Woods Fund alongside William C. Ayers, a member of the Weathermen terrorist group which sought to overthrow of the U.S. government and took responsibility for bombings against government buildings.

Ayers, who still serves on the Woods Fund board, contributed $200 to Obama's senatorial campaign fund and has served on panels with Obama at numerous public speaking engagements. Ayers admitted to involvement in the bombings of U.S. governmental buildings in the 1970s. He is a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Ayers has boasted of his involvement with the Weathermen terror group's bombings of the New York City Police headquarters in 1970, the Capitol in 1971 and the Pentagon in 1972.

"I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough," Ayers told the New York Times in an interview released Sept. 11, 2001

"Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon," Ayers wrote in his memoirs, titled "Fugitive Days." He continued with a disclaimer that he didn't personally set the bombs, but his group set the explosives and planned the attack.

A $200 campaign contribution is listed April 2, 2001, by the "Friends of Barack Obama" campaign fund. The two appeared as speakers together at several public events, including a 1997 University of Chicago panel entitled, "Should a child ever be called a 'super predator?'" and another panel for the University of Illinois in April 2002, entitled, "Intellectuals: Who Needs Them?"

The charges against Ayers were dropped in 1974 because of prosecutorial misconduct, including illegal surveillance.

Ayers is married to another notorious Weathermen terrorist, Bernadine Dohrn, who also has served on panels with Obama. Dohrn was once on the FBI's Top 10 Most Wanted List and was described by J. Edgar Hoover as the "most dangerous woman in America." Ayers and Dohrn raised the son of Weathermen terrorist Kathy Boudin, who was serving a sentence for participating in a 1981 murder and robbery that left four people dead.

Obama adviser wants talks with terrorists

Last month WND quoted Israeli security officials who expressed "concern" about Robert Malley, an adviser to Obama who has advocated negotiations with Hamas and providing international assistance to the terrorist group.

Malley, a principal Obama foreign policy adviser, has penned numerous opinion articles, many of them co-written with a former adviser to the late Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat, petitioning for dialogue with Hamas and blasting Israel for numerous policies he says harm the Palestinian cause.

Malley also previously penned a well-circulated New York Review of Books piece largely blaming Israel for the collapse of the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations at Camp David in 2000 when Arafat turned down a Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza and eastern sections of Jerusalem and instead returned to the Middle East to launch an intifada, or terrorist campaign, against the Jewish state.

Malley's contentions have been strongly refuted by key participants at Camp David, including President Bill Clinton, then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and primary U.S. envoy to the Middle East Dennis Ross, all of whom squarely blamed Arafat's refusal to make peace for the talks' failure.

The Brzezinski/Obama Axis*

Paul Eidelberg

I. Who is Zbigniew Brzezinski?

It was reported in the New York Sun on February 15 that Barack Hussain Obama has chosen Zbigniew Brzezinski to advise him on Middle East policy.

Back in 1985, I wrote an article on Brzezinski for The Intercollegiate Review. Before citing some of the more relevant passages of that article, it should be borne in mind that Brzezinski, a political scientist, served as President Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser. One does not have to read Carter’s Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid to know that Carter is an anti-Semite. Brzezinski has earned the same reputation.

Not only has Brzezinski publicly defended the anti-Semitic canard that the relationship between America and Israel is the result of Jewish pressure, but he also signed a letter demanding dialogue with Hamas, whose charter calls for Israel’s destruction. It behooves us to understand the mentality of Obama’s Middle East adviser—and more deeply than our so-called experts.

Long before he became Mr. Carter’s national security adviser, Brzezinski rejected what he and most political scientists term the “black-and-white” image of the American and Soviet political systems. “This image,” he says, “is held by traditional anti-Communists.” Brzezinski thus affirmed he is not quite an anti-Communist. In fact, he deplores anti-Communism as “a relic of the Cold War, of the age of ideology.”

Not only did Brzezinski reject the “black-and-white” image of the American and Soviet forms of government, he rejects the very notion of good and bad regimes! If you are shocked by Brzezinski’s moral relativism, ponder Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s confession in an interview with Ha’aretz in 2002 that his son Omri taught him “not to think in terms of black and white”—a statement uttered while suicide bombers were reducing Jews to body parts.

The influence of political scientists like Brzezinski is wide and deep. His moral relativism or neutrality prompts politicians to negotiate with and appease terrorist regimes. Mr. Obama may not be a moral relativist, but with Brzezinski as his adviser, he will be more disposed than other presidential candidates to appease Iran. Nor is this all.

With Brzezinski advising him, Obama’s chant about CHANGE may be more serious and insidious than Hillary’s silly utterances. He may have in mind changing the fundamental character of the American regime. That would fit well with the designs of one of his backers, billionaire George Soros, a globalist committed to the termination of the nation-state and the ascendancy of world government.

Since Brzezinski is a moral or historical relativism, he denies the existence of objective or transhistorical standards for determining whether the way of life of one nation, group, or individual is morally superior to that of another. (The members of the UN General Assembly would be pleased to hear this, despite the UN’s notorious record of condemning Israel without having ever condemned an Arab or Islamic terrorist state.)

Brzezinski’s relativism makes him a “weather-vane” political scientist. He turns with the winds of power; he is nothing if not “politically correct.” Working in a pluralistic and egalitarian country like America—a secular society—he conveniently adopts tolerance as his operational principle on the one hand, and equality as his primary value on the other. He is quite at home with the moral equivalency that has shaped US foreign policy toward Israel and Islamic dictatorships.

Brzezinski views history through the lens of Marxism, which, despite its atheism, has much in common with Islam. Both Communism and Islam are universalistic ideologies that reject the idea of the nation-state. Both do not regard adherence to treaties between nations as obligatory. Both Communism and Islam are militaristic and expansionist creeds that do not recognize international borders. Brzezinski’s globalism has become evident in Jimmy Carter. Under Brzezinski’s influence, Carter lowered the defense budget and pursued a soft line toward the Soviet Union. We can expect an Obama White House to pursue a very soft line toward Islam.

II. Iran’s Vision: A World Without Israel and the United States

With Zbigniew Brzezinski as his national security adviser, it was Jimmy Carter who facilitated the return of Ayatollah Khomeini to Iran. The Carter-Brzezinski axis is very much responsible for the Islamic revolution—the most dangerous revolution that has occurred in human history, a revolution that threatens the existence of every nation-state.

As a crypto-Marxist, Brzezinski deplores the nation-state. His book Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era, declares that “With the splitting and eclipse of Christianity man began to worship a new deity: the nation. The nation became a mystical object claiming man’s love and loyalty. The nation-state along with the doctrine of national sovereignty fragmented humanity. It could not provide a rational framework within which the relations between nations could develop.” Brzezinski sees the nation-state as having only partly increased man’s social consciousness and only partially alleviated the human condition.

“That is why Marxism,” he contends, “represents a further vital and creative stage in the maturing and man’s universal vision.” Marxism, he says, “was the most powerful doctrine for generating a universal and secular human consciousness.” Embodied in the Soviet Union, however, Communism became the dogma of a party and, under Stalin, “was wedded to Russian nationalism.”

Although Brzezinski poses as a humanist, he makes a most inhumane statement by saying that: “although Stalinism may have been a needless tragedy, for both the Russian people and Communism as an ideal, there is the intellectually tantalizing possibility that for the world at large it was … a blessing in disguise.” Ponder this shocking statement about Islam or of Islamic imperialism. Yes, it slaughtered more than 200 million people, but Islam brought hundreds of Christian, Jewish, Zoroastrian, Hindu, and Buddhist communities under a single universal vision, that of the Quran.

Brzezinski, a self-professed secularist, is an internationalist whose moral relativism contradicts the moral law or natural rights doctrine of America’s Declaration of Independence. His relativism and internationalism contradict the teachings of the America’s Founding Fathers, who endowed the United States with a national identity and character, the same that animated Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt. To put it more bluntly: Brzezinski’s mode of thought or political mentality — like that of countless other American academics — is anti-American. An Obama-Brzezinski axis has revolutionary significance. It might accelerate the de-Americanization and decline of the United States.

This development has its parallel in the de-Judaizing of Israel’s Third Commonwealth. Israel’s ruling elites, beginning with President Shimon Peres, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livini, Education Minister Yuli Tamir—and let’s not forget Israel’s erstwhile and still influential Supreme Court president Aaron Barak—have the same basic mentality as Brzezinski. The mere fact that they are multiculturalists committed to transforming Israel into “a state of its citizens” means that they are only nominal Jews, that just as Brzezinski is, in principle, anti-American, so they are, in principle, anti-Israel or anti-Jewish!

But let us not be misled by the term “multiculturalism.” Multiculturalism means nothing less than the end of the nation-state system that has prevailed for almost four centuries. The nation-state obtained a monopoly of political power. Power abhors a vacuum. Terminate the nation-state and you are heading for world government. But a world government must also have a monopoly of power. Its agents must be everywhere, to make sure that no opposition group in any country secretly develops weapons of mass destruction. A world government must have the equivalent of the KGB in every country. A world government would be the greatest tyranny in human history.

Israel is the target of all those who oppose the nation-state if only because the Bible of Israel not only prescribes a multiplicity of nations, but a moral code that contradicts the moral relativism of the Brzezinskis and of Israel’s ruling elites.

Will Israel be the target of CHANGE — the mantra of the Democratic Party chanted most ominously by Barack Hussain Obama?

from COMMENTS at Jihad Watch to the post "Free Kosovo will be a door for Islamic jihadists" posted by Robert Spencer, Director of Jihad Watch
post at reprinted as follows:

Free Kosovo will be a door for Islamic jihadists

John Bolton says what we have been saying here all along*.

"Free Kosovo a Door for Islamic Radicals," from Javno (thanks to larwyn):
Independent Kosovo will endanger the stability in the Balkans once again, estimated the American ambassador at the UN, John Bolton.

I think that there is a significant risk that the instability in the Balkans will continue in Bosnia and other areas where ethnic groups do not live in a country they refuse, said Bolton in an interview for Glas Amerike reported in Serbian language.

Kosovo will be a weak country submissive to Islamic radical forces which will spread its influence in the area with the support of singular Albanians and so potentially open the door to radicals in Europe, Bolton estimated.

All comments to the foregoing post are worth reading. In keeping with the topic of the present post, however, we have reproduced only some of the COMMENTS that elucidate the relationship between Serbs, Jews, Islam and the Kosovo situation.

I must say as a serb and a curious onlooker I am more than a bit annoyed that Mr Spencer never dares touch serbian issues here to show us that religious extremism in general and islamic fundamentalism in particular are his real issues whereas serbian nation has been tortured by terrorism and had it's land and possessions stolen by these same forces which he claims to fight which were obviously helped and incited by the western powers led by US.

And someone said saudis did it, maybe a bit but I disagree, it was mainly the zionist jews agitators in US and elsewhere, afterall the biggest serb haters in America and maybe the world are people like Liberman, Lantos(gone now), Feinstein, Albright, Clarke, Holbrooke, Cohen, Friedman etc... for they thought some war mongering away from israel and sucking up to muslims will help them and Israel and for their ultimate target is Russia so they wage war on any slavic people as a precursor and serbian people were a target

As for Serbia, this is obviously the most grievous international law violation since the war itself in 1999 which was followed by Iraq war and is probably just as serious and a matter of existence as 1914 first world war. Clearly the regime in washington wants to wash off hands since their balkan adventures have served their purpose or not and they ahve other fish on their mind, either way "international law" doesn't exist anymore but the balkan issues are not over in fact they are just starting but it maybe without America

Unfortunately some Serbs' Jew-hatred is not only on par with their anti-Albanian/Moslem feelings but outdoes it.

During the U.S.-led NATO offensive against Milosovic's Serbia, the propaganda emanating from the Clinton government likened Serb resistance to the Albanian Moslems to the Genocide perpetrated by the German Nazis against the Jews of the world. Jews in the U.S., ever siding with whomever appears to be the "victim," sympathized with the fleeing Albanian Moslems who on TV were portrayed as the victims of a genocide.

Jews, until very recently, were on the whole uninformed about Islam and its design for world-domination. Unfamiliar with the Koran and the Jew-hatred integral to Islamic teachings of Mohammed, they bought into the whine of Islamic "victimhood."

There were, and still are, plenty of misguided Jews who feel the pain of the "Palestinian" Arab Moslems. That is why Moslem Arabs are sitting in the Knesset and given full Israeli citizenship in Israel.

The Jew-hatred of some Serbs does not endear them to Jews who are facing the same Islamic enemy as the Serbs. Who benefits most from Serbian Jew-hatred? The Islamics of course, who like nothing better than to see their opposition divided and fighting amongst itself.

The Jew-hatred of some Serbs is only outdone by that of the Croats--who embraced the Nazi antisemitism wholeheartedly and without reservations.

Now, that we have seen the problem, is there a solution? If the Serbs were to lay aside their Jew-hatred--if only for the duration of the war against the jihad--and concentrate on trying to keep Moslems out of Europe as they did for centuries, their cause would be better served.

As for the Jews, they do not have an inbred hatred of Serbs. Some Jewish-Americans misguided sympathy for Clinton-bolstered "Kosovars" was not based on hatred of Serbs but on empathy for the apparent "victims." Moslems are always good at playing the role of "victims."

Although accused of hatred of non-Jews by their enemies, Jews as a whole suffer from lack of this emotion as deplored by Ben Hecht:
"What we dream of is—Jews strong enough and honest enough to hate their killers …" --Ben Hecht

The Serbs are very grateful to Israel who were the Serbs biggest allies in the civil wars.

The KLA and Bosnians got huge help from Bin Laden, whilst the Slobo signed deals for huge arms shipments from Israeli arms dealers.

They got the latest in Israeli communications, the Bosnian Serb MUP were kitted out in israeli gear, blah blah blah.

The Serbs rescued many Jews from the NAZIs and suffered almost as horrendously as the Jews did.

I come to appreciate Serbian people because I worked with some during the war of ex-Yugoslavia, and I was able to understand their point of view and their pain when like you they read the Western medias. I also learn about the fierce resistance of the Orthodox axis against the ottoman invasion.

@ unicorns62000

I totally agree with you analysis. A lot of Jews are impulsively triggered to defend victims... even if it is only a role played for public opinion and worst even against their vital interest! As for hatred, it is a sin worst than murder because it can kill many. Some are working hard to explain why islamophobia is a sane reaction for anyone who reads the koran but incredibly in face of our painful history most Jews cannot even believe in hatred...that is maybe why the holocaust is such a trauma because we cannot understand it.

Refrain your antisemitism. You give the name of some Jews and you say it is because of the Jews, but you could have give the same number of names of Jews who where on the opposite side. So the problem is not that some Jews have a different opinion, it is that you already have in your mind the model of "the international Jewry comploting and having a lot of power" against Orthodox Christians, after all don't you learn that they kill Christ?

Fresh news: Christ was Jehuda and Jew, and the death punishment on the cross is Roman, Roma being the place of the Vatican today. So as an Orthodox goes fight the Roman Christians if you want, I am sure you can find some in the American Congress as well, but stop pretending that Jews are your enemy because I like Serbian people and I am Jew. Don't mistake the enemy, Jews are not making Jihad to conquer the world...only antisemitic propaganda says so!

I could name hundreds of zionists in power in government and media in US but also Canada ,western Europe , jews and non jews alike and just about every jewish organizations that portrayed Serbian people as nazis and all the muslims as angels to be saved from holocaust like conditions which basically incited bombing every inch of serbian land and making a million serbs refugees.

Most notorious was William Kristol the neocon(talking about crushing serbian skulls) and Tom Friedman New York Times calling for war on entire Serbian people. There is no question that they acted in concert to demonize serbian people along with entire american political and media elite. As I remember it was presented as a way toward jewish muslim friendship and understanding over attacking Serbia where even jewish and muslim american organizations united for the first time . This is my view over the years that has just been reinforced by the other events notably in Iraq .

I have nothing personal against jewish people but I am not sure it's other way around. Maybe they see us as easy pickings and risk free bashing. Serb bashing is so common in the western media where I have stopped paying attention.

I used to be pro israel in their conflicts as I was serbian and we had issues with muslims and I saw jews as victims from the past but I have rarely met them and I wish them peace in Israel despite everything but in my opinion they won't have the peace due to the nature of that conflict and neither will we until US and Israel are completelly independent of each other and US can behave responsably and without bias in international arena again or the consequences can be truelly awful on global scale

I am techically orthodox christian but religion was never to my taste personally , in fact most are lacking to me so I don't base my thinking on religion as I am very much secular and I certainly don't hold historic grudges or to any ethnic group that has nothing to do with today's world. My opinions are not based on religious antagonism

But I must say that I can not see jews as my personal friends or friends to serbian people in general, certainly not after this and all these years. After all it was organized jewish persistence in demonizing serbian people that led to today's situation , organized jewry in media and positions of power attacked us to appease their muslim rivals and enemies , we never attacked them nor were a threat to them

You say you like serbian people and I don't know why is that as that would make you different to just about every jewish person or non jewish zionist in American/Western media and position of power

As for recognizing friends and enemies , I have a distinct feeling that Israel will recognize the self declared and illegal "kosovo" sooner than say Iran if they ever do , not to mention US and its satellites which is given

recognizing that someone acted in concert to achieve a certain result is fact telling, not stereotyping as you allude to. I am pointing out to zionist political elite in Washington , not ordinary jewish person elsewhere
President Bush and Secretary Rice are responsible for this insanity and they are both Christian.
They are actually just inheriting this and politically they are dead ducks so it's not about them. The people who created this before them in Clinton time are commited zionists, from both parties and Bush himself is a known "chritian zionist" who is pushing for wars against Israeli muslim enemies and rivals and will never withdraw from Iraq mostly because of Israel so I guess he wants to do something for the muslims in his mind at least.
Second, your general statement about Mr. Spencer and his views of the Balkans and Serbia shows that not only have you not paid attention to the articles here at Jihadwatch, but that you didn’t even read this article’s headline.
I have looked around and barely saw anything in the week prior, some little things from long time ago and I thought it was a perfect occasion for Mr Spencer to show his real stand but what I saw is a very timid non critical stance, that is Mr. Spencer seems to be adjusting his opinions to typical american mainstream media/US government view of the world where everything is related to American and Israeli interests and not because some real issues that are truely global. In effect I can hardly see Mr. Spencer criticing US and Iaraeli government on anything such as its recent warmongering on Iran or Iraq war or even its balkan policies. Willfully or not , some issues relating to jihad , islamic fundamentalism, war and terrorsm seem to be skewed to fit a political agenda which is a shame because the issue is global and causes and fuels of this problem seem to be deliberatelly obfuscated and not just by mainstream western media
The headline clearly makes Mr. Spencer’s position on an independent Kosovo clear.

I agree with you about Kristol, and some others, but I don't see what they are doing as part of being Jewish.

The Neocons are not exclusively Jewish, and they have an ideology unto themselves. It is an insane utopian ideology that will lead to death and distruction of innocent people, and destabilization of states leading to greater tyranny, like Communism was. But it is not distinctionly Jewish or Zionist.

I support Israel (one might call me Zionist, although that seems inappropriate because my reasons are basic universal Justice and not anything particularly of a religious tradition, neither Evangelical Christainity nor Judaism).

I think most Jews at their core genuinely care about and support Western civilization and its principles (which, if applied sanely and open-eyed to E. Europe, would not lead to this Kosovo mess). And I think that Judaism is an honorable religion, nothing like Islam. There is nothing in any of the personal, cultural, or religious factors that group together Jews as Jews that is behind the problem with tarring the Serbs.

For that larger explanation you have to go beyond Judaism and Jewish people, and into a category of people united by Neoconservative ideology. That, in my opinion, is how to explain the Kristol connexion.

And Yes - absolutely Neocons want to befriend the Muslims against the E. Europeans. The motivations are complicated. It is in part because remnant cold war beliefs, in part also I think because of memory of how E. Europe mistreated Jews historically (of course that isn't to say all Jews accept the Neocon feelings of how to deal with this history). What the Neocons are doing is a bit more like what (non-Jewish) W. Europe political elite leftists are doing with the Jews: we'll sell you out in an attempt to appease the Muslims.

(Aside, I think the Neocon variety of this approach in elite "Conservative" circles, is also at least in part an influence behind D'Souza's attempt to ally American religious rightwingers with Muslims against Liberals, in contempt of individual rights and natural God-given liberties.)

In part also is that the Neocons have deep issues with a sort of hollow "respecting" of religion, and have fallen under the "Islam is peace" spell just as much as any far left liberal you'll find. Neoconservatives are largely nihilists that have half-found religion through philosophy, and think people can use is as some sort of amorphous Nietzschen tool for obtaining a sense of personal and social meaning.

They have this preexisting reason for wanting, needing, to believe Islam is good - they see it, as all realigion, as coming from a deeper universal person yearning that makes people more than biological machines, but as not strictly true. Islam they put in this category, and it precludes them from seeing it as not an organic outgrowing of this desire, or a chosen match for it, but as a religion people by and large actually adopted to avoid discrimination, lower status, onerous taxes, or a knife to the throat.

Even if they do see the latter, they don't see how the latter means that it is quite possible the religion is incompatible with the former; they don't see how the later circumstance removes all checks that the ideology conform to the former desire. No matter its texts, or the circumstances of its spread; they'd rather think all religions are infinetly maleable to fit the inner desire, because the Neocons are ideologically married to certain ideas about what all religion is.

You'll get a sense of it, of their conviction that religion is all inherently good and necessary, yet not real exactly except in how people use them (very post modern), and a sense of how this influences their politics and approach to Islam, if you read their publications regularly, at least for a while, and browse some of their founding philosophy.

This motivates much of their policy, in coordination with their never-discarded cold-war outlook and, it seems for some Jewish Neocons, an anti-E. Euro vengeful streak, for past historical injustices (totally the wrong way to react to those past injustices, as now the main threat is not E. Euro pogroms, but Muslims wanting Jews wiped of the map for religious reasons).

At the same time you do have a lot of people, Jews and not Jews, buying the propaganda Washington has been putting out over the years. They aren't Neocons, such people, but they've been propagandized into going along with their policies. This group categorizes not as Jews or Neocons, but as dupes.

The retreat from Gaza only whet the appetite of the world for Israeli

How long with the retreat will Moloch be satisfied by the move Ramon proposes?

Ramon calls for evacuation of settlers east of security fence

Let's be honest about the goal of the proposed legislation: it isn't to pay
off settlers to evacuate - it is to justify abandoning those who refuse to
leave their homes.

"Why should IDF soldiers risk their lives protecting settlers who refuse to
accept compensation and leave?" Ramón and others will say.

"They had it coming to them" the internet talk backs will read, when
settlers who refuse to evacuate are murdered.

Ramon calls for evacuation of settlers east of security fence
By Barak Ravid, Haaretz Correspondent Last update - 14:22 23/02/2008

Kadima and the Labor Party should pursue legislation granting settlers
living east of the separation fence compensation in exchange for their
evacuation, Vice Premier Haim Ramon told a gathering in Tel Aviv on

Ramon said such a move would advance final-status negotiations with the
Palestinians while demonstrating to them and the international community
Israel's seriousness in its intentions to end its control over the

"When a right-wing government headed by the Likud and Shas determined the
route of the fence, it decided for all intents and purposes that everything
beyond the fence will not be under Israel's sovereignty," Ramon said.
"Indecision with regards to evacuation-compensation harms Israel's ability
to strengthen the settlement blocs west of the fence, where most of the
settlers are today, and to keep them under Israeli sovereignty. In that way,
it endangers the state of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state."

Following the Annapolis peace conference late last year, Ramon began sending
overtures to fellow members of Knesset in order to gauge lawmakers' interest
in approving the legislation. Prior to the conference, Ramon urged Prime
Minister Ehud Olmert to use his speech at Annapolis as a platform to
announce his support for such an initiative. Ramon's proposal was rejected.

Months ago, Labor and Meretz MKs proposed a similar measure which was shot
down by the ministerial committee on legislation.

Jihad is a cultural power-quest driven by Arab oil-money. Israel/Palestine won't resolve it.

Here, in a new DemoCast-filmed exclusive, Dr. Tawfik Hamid rectifies the misconception that global Jihadist imperialism is motivated by the Israel/Palestine conflict. Contrary to conventional presumption, he explains that the imperialist Jihad (and associated, terror-intimidation) is actually fueled by an Arab oil-funded, Islamist cultural network of mosques, schools, clergy. It is this religious dogma, he claims, which drives hatred and domination of non-Muslims, particularly Jewish people and the Jewish state.

The messiah of the Democrat Party?

or someone who is not what he appears to be?


[following are excerpts from Barak Hussein Obama - Who is he? by By Ted Sampley U.S. Veteran Dispatch]

Independent columnist, Andy Martin ( says he believes Obama is a political fraud who "lied to the American people."

Martin says Obama may be a threat to the Jewish community because he is a closet Muslim.

"I feel sad having to expose Barack Obama," says Martin, "but the man is a complete fraud. The truth is going to surprise, and disappoint, and outrage many people who were drawn to him. He has lied to the American people, and he has sought to misrepresent his own heritage.

"Obama's life story is vastly different from the one he portrays. My point: if he will lie about his mother and father, what else is he lying about?
"Fiction: Obama was given an 'African' name.

"Fact: Obama is a Muslim who has concealed his religion..

"He has treated his Muslim heritage as a dark secret. His grandfather was named 'Hussein.' That is an Arabic-Muslim, not African, name. Hussein was a devout Muslim and named his son, Barack Senior, 'Baraka.' Baraka is an Arabic word meaning 'blessed.' Baraka comes out of the Koran and Arabic, not Africa.

"Barack Senior was also a devoted Muslim, and also chose a Muslim name for his son, our own Barack Obama, Junior. Again, his name was an Arabic and Koranic.

"Fiction: Obama Senior was a harmless student 'immigrant' who came to the United States only to study.

"Fact: Obama was part of one of the most corrupt and violent organizations in Africa: the Kenyatta regime. Obama's father ran back to Kenya soon after the British left. It is likely Obama's father had Mau Mau sympathies or connections, or he would not have been welcomed into the murderous inner circle of rapists, murderers, and arsonists. I believe Obama's secret shame at his family history of rape, murder and arson is what actualizes him. Our research is not yet complete. We are seeking to examine British colonial records. Our investigation to date has drawn on information on three continents.
"It is time for Barack Obama to stop presenting a fantasy to the American people. We are forgiving and many would still support him. It may well be that his concealment is meant to endanger Israel. His Muslim religion would obviously raise serious questions in many Jewish circles where Obama now enjoys support," Martin said.
Is a man Muslims think is a Muslim, [Debbie] Schlussel asked on her blog , " a man we want as President when we are fighting the war of our lives against Islam? Where will his loyalties be?
Obama says he is a Christian with "deep faith rooted in the Christian tradition." He is a member of Trinity United Church of Christ of Chicago, which on its web site declares to be a "congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian" and "an African people" who "remain 'true to our native land,' the mother continent, the cradle of civilization."

Trinity United Church of Christ adopted a "Black Value System" which pledges allegiance "to all Black leadership who espouse and embrace the Black Value System" and a "personal commitment to embracement of the Black Value System."

According to , Obama has proven himself to be a nearly perfect leftist democrat. He is pro-abortion, anti-gun, against ban of same-sex marriage, against teaching family values in public schools, against ban of flag burning, against privatizing Social Security, against the death penalty and three strikes laws, for hiring more women and minorities, for increased funding for health care and for campaign finance reform.

He believes in the separation of church and state - except when he campaigns in black churches.

As Obama is being supported--financially, emotionally, vocally--by too many Jews, we owe it to ourselves to find out whether an Obama presidency would do to Jews, Israel, and the United states where many Jews live under the Constitution of the United states.

Jews have been bankrolling an Obama bid for the Presidency ever since the man announced his ambition to occupy the White House.

Jews have not always been wise in choosing leaders--see Olmert and Sharon's Kadima party that reversed what the Sharon as a Likudnik had promised. This resulted in the evacuation of Gaza and the filling of the vacuuum by Hamas. A Gaza not directly controlled by Israel allows for the constant bombardment of Israeli cities.


Obama prefers to be nothing more than a poseur playing the role of the perpetually victimized black man with a Muslim name.

So is Barack Obama really a stealth Muslim masquerading as a Christian? That all depends on what your definition of "is" is.

"When a nation is filled with strife, then do patriots flourish." ~ Laotze
--Lao at *

The following is from (Beckwith)*

Zbigniew Brzezinski had been the national security adviser for Jimmy Carter--one of the most dedicated enemies of Israel and Jews, in the pay of Islamics

Two weeks after Obama name[d] Zbigniew Brzezinski as his Chief Foreign Policy Advisor, Brzezinski arrive[d] in Damascus, Syria, to begin talks with the terrorists and political assassins of the Assad regime.

The visit was not coordinated with America's embassy and w[as] not covered by the press, although Syrian press accounts said the delegation would visit Syria's president, Bashar al-Assad; vice president, Farouq al-Sharaa, and foreign minister, Walid Mouallem.

Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) commented, "I remember thinking, 'Why are we listening to him?' (Brzezinski) He was the national security adviser for Jimmy Carter 30 years ago. He proceeded to talk to us about Iran, and I said, 'Let me see, didn't the ayatollahs come to power, didn't we have this problem when you were in the White House?'"

Brzezinski was also the great promoter of Islamic fundamentalism, which he celebrated as the greatest bulwark against Soviet Russian communism. Using the Islamic fundamentalists, Brzezinski hoped to make the entire region between the southern border of the USSR and the Indian Ocean into an "arc of crisis," from which fundamentalist subversion would radiate into Soviet territory, first and foremost into the five Soviet republics of central Asia, Azerbaijan, etc. It was in the service of this Islamic fundamentalist card that Brzezinski first helped overthrow the Shah of Iran, and then insisted that the replacement could be no one else than Ayatollah Khomeini. Obama's not even elected and he's already kissing the ass of terrorists.

Was it a recommendation of Zbigniew Brzezinski to bring Robert Malley, another anti-Israel foreign policy expert, onto Obama's foreign policy staff?

Malley's father, Simon Malley, was born to a Syrian family in Cairo and at an early age found his métier in political journalism. Simon wrote thousands of words in support of the struggle against Western nations. In Paris, he founded the journal Afrique Asie; he and his magazine became advocates for "liberation" struggles throughout the world, particularly for the Palestinians. Simon Malley loathed Israel and anti-Israel activism became a crusade for him -- as an internet search would easily show.

Now, his son, Robert, is following in his father's footsteps and he represents the next generation of anti-Israel activism, through his writings, that are akin to propaganda. He has written a range of pieces over the years that reveal an agenda at work that should give pause to those Obama supporters who truly care about peace in the Middle Peace and the fate of our ally Israel. He is best known for a controversial series of articles in 2001 blaming Israel and exonerating Arafat for the failure of the Clinton peace efforts.

Malley is the Director of the Middle East/North Africa Program at the International Crisis Group (ICG). The ICG is funded (in part) by anti-Israel billionaire activist George Soros through his Open Society Institute. Soros serves on its Board and on its Executive Committee. Other members of the Board include Zbigniew Brzezinski (whose anti-Israel credentials are impeccable) and Wesley Clark (who called US support for Israel during the Hezbollah War a "serious mistake").

It can't be! It couldn't be! Not the Moslem Keith Ellison! 'Cuse me, the Moslem Rep. Keith Ellison.

But not to worry, there's those that want to get him off the Task force that was established by Rep. Tom Lantos (CA) who sadly left us earlier this month:

Americans Against Hate is calling for Rep. Keith Ellison to be removed from the Congressional Task Force on Anti-Semitism.

It's sort of like having an SS Obersturmbannfuehrer during the time of Hitler--say 1938--on a Nazi Antisemitism Task Force.

But back to the present, about the AAH (Americans Against Hate) who want Ellison off the Task force.

Will they be successful?

Right now, it doesn't look like it. See


But it fits right in with what else is going on. A presidential candidate who, if elected, will sit down with Hamas and Fatah to decide on Israel's fate. The candidate belongs to an antisemitic church with ties to Nation of Islam's Louis Farrakhan--an arch antisemite. The presidential candidate learnt his Islam at madrassas. He had a Moslem father. This is the guy to lead the battles against the worldwide jihad? What a joke! Not a funny one. Not to evoke hearty laughter, but the thin laughter of desperation.

The alternative--on the same party's side--has a husband, who while President of the United States, had the wily arch enemy of Jews and Israel, Arafat many times as an honored guest at the White House. He is now in the pay of the Arab Moslems, who hold him in high regard as he was the facilitator of a Moslem entity in Europe: Kosovo or as he pronounces it Kosova, in the Albanian fashion.

The laughter grows thinner and thinner and threatens to turn into tears. But there is hope. amongst the American people, there are those who will not quietly allow the country to be turned into an Islam-welcoming hell.

But 'nuff said.

Action is what will save US.

Those of you who are still benighted, who feel that the Islam is close to Judaism, that it is a religion, take the scales from your eyes.

Islam is not an Abrahamic "religion." As a matter of fact, it is not even a religion! But more about that later. The ideology called Islam is a perversion and voracious devourer of Judaism. Its progenitor--Mohammed--becoming partially acquainted with bits and pieces of Judaism, and its prophets, incorporated fragments from the Tanakh into the mishmash that he heard as voices in his head.

Case in point: Mohammed changed Abraham's sacrifice offer from that of his son Isaac to that of his wife's Egyptian handmaiden's son Ishmael.

Mohammed had the bright idea to make the ideology he was putting together, as it was given birth by the voices in his head, to be the final replacement of the two etsablished monotheistic religions--Judaism and its offshoot Christianity. He made all of Judaism's prophets as well as Jesus Christ and his mother Mary into Moslems--although of course they could not have known that yet at the time that they lived, because the voices had not yet spoken in Mohammed's head.

This gets more and more confusing, there is a god called Allah (the god), derived from the Ka'aba's moon god, who becomes indistinguishable from Mohammed as the ramblings continue.

But Jews, the point is that ever since this Mohammed called himself a prophet--and the last and final prophet yet--his ideology has preached the most bitter hatred of Jews.

Listen to this:

Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him." (Bukhari 4.52.177)

The Mohammedan scriptures (Koran, ahadith, etc.) are full of Jew-hatred, instructions to maim and kill Jews. Jews were Mohammed's biggest obstacles to proselytizing his ideology amongs them, to replace Judaism. He never forgot that the Jews were the first to vigorously oppose the perversion of Judaism with bits and pieces of Christianity he was trying to force onto them.

Don't believe it? Look at Compendium of Muslim Texts--a pro-Mohammedan compilation prepared by Moslems. For an easier and more directed introduction to the Jew-hatred of Mohammed and his companions and heirs, you can start with Islam 101 by Gregory M. Davis author of Religion of Peace? Islam's War Against the World, producer/director of Islam: What the West Needs to Know -- An Examination of Islam, Violence, and the Fate of the Non-Muslim World.

And to keep abreast with the latest attempts by Moslems to make the United States into an Islamic state, look at

Oh, and don't be too bedazzled by that Obama man. Some of you--too many of you--want this Obama to be President of the United States. So unbigoted, so tolerant, to support an African-American (African father, white American mother) for the highest office in the land, to become the most powerful man in the world, isn't it?

But this same Obama man, when he was a boy, went to Islamic religious schools--madrassas--where he learnt the basics of Islam--the same basics that you can see by clicking on Islam 101.

Obama's father was a Moslem. The child of a Moslem is automatically a Moslem. The child of a Moslem goes to madrassas--the Islamic schools that teach the Koran and other Moslem scriptures.

Could there be an undercover Moslem Brother amongst the presidential candidates? Hmmmm?

Madrassa have a way of getting under an ambitious candidates skin. A childhood education in madrassas . . .. . . can mean nothing. (after all. how many of us remember what was drilled into out heads in our formative years?) And then again, it can lead to great things . . .(as shown in the link above)

[I can rememeber vividly what I learned during my first four years of schooling. It did make a great impression on my impressionable brain. No tabula rasa there. So could it be with others.]

And Obama joined a Christian church. Not an ordinary Christian church, but one with a pastor who supports the Jew-Hater Farrakhan.

What about Obama and his plans for Israel?

"Obama for Palestine Don't be fooled by Mr. Peretz's misguided thoughts on Obama. The facts about Obama should cause great worry for Israel. 1) His Pastor is an admirer of Frarrakhan & is a known anti-Semite in Chicago. 2) Obama truly believes that Hamas and Hizbullah would changes "their ways" if only the U.S. held direct negotiations to "understand their opinions." Enough said.

And why is Islam not a religion? If you acquaint yourself with it--through its scriptures (see References above)--you will soon find it to be an ideology, replete with political aspirations (world conquest and subjugation of all non-Moslems) as well as a proclamation of laws*--good only for the followers of the ideology.

The Mohammedan-Arab Mobs in and around Israel

. . . what is the ONLY real difference between a mob of "Palestinian"-Arabs and a mob of Israeli-Arabs? The former can only say "Slaughter the Jews" in Arabic, Itback el Yahud, while the Israeli-Arab can also say it in Hebrew, Mavet l'yehudim!
