Obama's Israel Intentions and The Media


We've always known that the news media's bias helped elect Barack Obama in 2004.  Besides the fact that many journalists are liberal/socialists, we could never understand the reason why most of the media threw all of their considerable powers of persuasion behind the senator from Illinois.  It could have been the fact that they all suffered a terminal case of what Dr. Charles Krauthammer termed, "Bush Derangement Syndrome." However, in their bias, the media helped elect a socialist ideologue who by his own admission would side with the Muslims.  

As we see today's reporters talk about the Middle East dictators who have turned their guns on their own people, we wonder if those in the media realize that by their own unfair favoritism they hurt their fellow  Americans as well.  For over a period of 60 years, the United States has had one solid ally in the Middle East - The State of Israel.  The United States has always stood by Israel who has suffered attacks, and fought wars against their neighboring Arab countries who resent their presence and seek their destruction.

Then along came Obama and suddenly it comes to light that the media who backed his candidacy neglected to reveal to the American public that Obama would be the first American president to throw Israel under the bus and side with the Palestinians.  Obama's ludicrous request that Israel change it's borders to pre 1967 is one of the most ridiculous foreign policy statements ever issued by an American president.  To suggest that the Israelis share Jerusalem as its capital with the Palestinians defies comprehension by anyone who knows the history of modern Jewry and the State of Israel. 

Jack Cashill is rapidly becoming one of our favorite writers.  He thinks as we do, and sees the Middle East crisis in the same manner.  The following article written for The American Thinker is very revealing and hopefully will reach many of those who've not shown the interest in the fate of Israel that it, and it's people deserve.  Above all, it is our firm hope that it reaches that 78% of American Jews who were fooled into voting for Obama back in 2008. 
Two Sisters.

 Media Shielded Voters from Obama's Israel Intentions

by Jack Cashill

When President Barack Obama publicly endorsed the Palestinian view of Israel's future this week, he took many Americans, including many of his Jewish-American supporters, by surprise. Had the media been doing their job, he would not have surprised anyone.

Michelle and Barack Obama at Farewell
dinner for Palestinian Rashid Khalidi   
In April 2008, Peter Wallsten of the Los Angeles Times wrote a lengthy article titled "Allies of Palestinians see a friend in Obama." The article pulled some of its information from a video shot at a 2003 farewell dinner for Rashid Khalidi, a Palestinian booster and a de facto spokesman for the PLO during his Beirut years. Khalidi, who had spent several years at the University of Chicago, was leaving for New York.

Domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn reportedly attended the dinner as well. This would make sense. Khalidi begins the acknowledgment section of his 2004 book, Resurrecting Empire, with a tribute to the guy who lived -- and edited -- in their neighborhood. "First, chronologically and in other ways," writes Khalidi, "comes Bill Ayers." Unlike the calculating Obama, Khalidi had no reason to be coy about this relationship.

At the dinner, Obama thanked Khalidi and his wife for the many meals they had shared chez Khalidi and for reminding Obama of "my own blind spots and my own biases." Obama hoped that "we continue that conversation -- a conversation that is necessary not just around Mona and Rashid's dinner table [...] [but around] this entire world."

Wallsten acknowledged that during this "celebration of Palestinian culture," some of the guests made hostile comments about Israel. One recited a poem accusing the Israeli government of terrorism with the implicit threat that Israel "will never see a day of peace." Another compared "Zionist settlers on the West Bank" to Osama bin Laden. If worse had been said, or if Obama had applauded these comments, the world beyond the LA Times newsroom would not be allowed to know.

The Times, which endorsed Obama for president, steadfastly refused to share the videotape despite the demand by the McCain camp and others to release it. This was, of course, one of many clues to Obama's character that the media either suppressed or refused to seek.

"A major news organization is intentionally suppressing information that could provide a clearer link between Barack Obama and Rashid Khalidi," said McCain spokesman Michael Goldfarb.

Times spokeswoman Nancy Sullivan blew Goldfarb off. "As far as we're concerned, the story speaks for itself," she responded. The Times would add no details beyond what had appeared in Wallsten's April article. Obama, after all, had many affluent Jewish supporters in the Los Angeles area. Why worry them with a little anti-Israel rabble-rousing?


Why worry indeed - We are now reaping the adverse effects of having hidden the truth from American voters.
