RASHID KHALIDI On Gaza and Obama’s Middle East Policy

Posted by avideditor on January 20, 2009

I think Obama will kill all the Jews: He will be worse then Hitler or Stalin but I guess time will tell. I am still in the US because moving out is taking longer then I expected. Obama hates White People Listen to him say it in his own words. I he will never be my president, I am leaving america because he was elected. I am still in shock that the majority of Americans voted for a jihadi.  Here is a great article on Obama’s foreign policy from Yid with A Lid. 

If you like this you might like this from Yid with A Lid “There Arose a New President over America, Who Knew Not Joseph”

President-Elect Obama’s Palestinian Buddy Rashid Khalidi sat down on the Radically Left radio show Democracy Now. You might remember Khalidi, it was a tape of his “Going Away Party” Featuring Barack Obama the LA Times refused to release during the campaign.
Khalidi has been described as the former PLO Spokesman. Calling him a spokesman is like saying Jabba the Hut has a slight weight and/or slimy skin problem.

As Reported by WND:

Khalidi director of the official PLO press agency WAFA in Beirut from 1976 to 1982, while the PLO was based in Lebanon and committing scores of anti-Western attacks and was labeled by the U.S. as a terror group. Even though Rashid Khalidi at times has denied working directly for the PLO but Palestinian diplomatic sources in Ramallah told WND he indeed worked on behalf of WAFA and was an adviser the Palestinian delegation to the Madrid Conference in 1991. During documented speeches and public events, Khalidi has called Israel an “apartheid system in creation” and a destructive “racist” state [see a video of one of Khalidi’s hate speeches at the end of this post

Khalidi is a SUPPORTER of Palestinian terror, calling homicide bombings response to “Israeli aggression.” He dedicated his 1986 book, “Under Siege,” to “those who gave their lives … in defense of the cause of Palestine and independence of Lebanon.” Critics have described the book as excusing Palestinian terrorism.

Obama Funneled Cash to Former PLO Operatives Anti-Israel Foundation

Posted by avideditor on April 9, 2008

More evidence has surfaced on Obama’s terrorist and anti Israel ties. To see my previous post on Barak  Obama

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. That is another unexplored black hole.

Although he is described as a former PLO operative, via Free Republic, this is what Rashid Khalidi has to say about Palestinian terrorism against Jews:

On Palestinian violence. Khalidi glorifies anti-Israel violence as contributing to ‘political enlightenment’[vii] and unsurprisingly admires those who carry it out. His loyalty to Palestinian terrorist groups run so deep that he actually dedicated his 1986 valentine to the PLO, Under Siege, to ‘those who gave their lives . . . in defense of the cause of Palestine and independence of Lebanon.’[viii] The book whitewashes PLO violence against Israelis and Lebanese, as well as the Syrian occupation.

A couple of weeks back Atlas Shrugs posted information that Obama and former Weather Underground honcho William Ayers, who sat with Obama on the board of the Woods Fund, funneled money to Khalidi’s foundation:

A top official at the Pentagon during former-President George H. W. Bush’s Administration and a former CIA intelligence officer maintains that Barack Obama and former Weather Underground honcho William Ayers funneled money to Professor Rashid Khalidi, a known terrorist sympathizer.

Khalidi serves on the faculty of Columbia University in New York and is best known as the professor who invited Iranian President Ahmedinejad to visit Columbia University after he finished his speech at the United Nations. According to confidential sources, Khalidi has direct ties to the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), a group on the US State Department’s list of known terrorist groups.

‘One source for this information was once a top military figure in the 1990s. He doesn’t take making allegations lightly. If he says something happened, believe me, it happened,’ said syndicated radio talk show host Laurie Roth.

‘Another source is a former agent for the Central Intelligence Agency, who is an expert in counterterrorism,’ said Roth, who broke the story on her show Friday night.

World Net Daily reported that as director of the Woods Fund board in Chicago Barack Obama granted Khalidi’s controversial anti-Israel group the Arab American Action Network, or AAAN, $40,000 in 2001 and $35,000 in 2002.

This news seems to fit with what we are getting to know about the Illinois senator.
