Rashid Khalidi and Barack Obama


It is no secret to anyone who reads this blog to know that I am a firm supporter of Israel. I am becoming increasingly concerned with the people around Barack Obama.
We have all heard about how his pastor has honored 'Calypso Louis' Farrakhan as a 'Great Man.'

Now comes Rashid Khalidi [note the wikipedia article leaves out his employment with the PLO], former director of the WAFA, the official Press Agency for the Palestinian Liberation Organization, a Palestinian Terrorist Group, in Beirut, Lebanon from 1976 to 1982...the latter period where our troops were engaged in combat with the PLO.

Here is an example of some of this man's radical opinions, according to Campus Watch:

When Palestinian violence garners unfavorable publicity, Khalidi’s response it to blame the messenger, not the murderers. Thus, in response to Palestinians lynched two off-duty Israeli officers on October 12, 2000, Khalidi did not critique the perpetrators of this crime, but railed against the “prostitute” and “cynical” media that dared to show Palestinians triumphantly displaying bloodied hands after the killings. In like spirit, he faults not those Palestinians who erupted in joyous street celebrations at the murders of 3,000 Americans on 9/11, but the media for having the temerity to report these occurrences.
More information can be found, including donations to his campaign by former Weather Underground Leader Dr. William Ayers and PLO Operative Rashid Khalidi at Rezko Watch.
