Obama’s Favor for Khalidi – May 20, 2009
The Obamas seated with Palestinian Liberation Organization Leader, Edward Said at Rashid Khalidi Fundraiser
America and Israel are and always have been allies. That means that America has promised to come to Israel’s aid if they are attacked and vice-versa. Israel is the only true democracy in the midst of Muslim, Arab and terrorist-run countries. That’s why they are hated. Muslim efforts to take over Israel have been unsuccessful, but they will never give up.
The Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip are mingled with the terrorist group “Hamas”, who does have a considerable amount of control over their fledging government. Hamas has relentlessly attacked Israel with rockets, killing and maiming innocents almost on a daily basis with a few two-month respites, only to resume again – probably time spent re-stocking their arms supply with Kassam rockets from Russia.
America has rightly sided with Israel demanding that the Palestinians stop firing rockets into Israel until now. Obama recently met with Shimon Peres and Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel and took a hard-nosed stand with them, our friends. He pressed Netanyahu to stop the settlers from building homes and businesses in disputed territories saying that is the reason the Muslim countries are outraged and cited this as the reason there can be no peace.
Obama says the problem is that Israeli settlers are building homes. Obama did not say that the problem is Hamas terrorists firing rockets into Israel killing, maiming and terrorizing Israelis. So in Obama-world, it is outrageous to peacefully build homes harming no one, but it is just fine to fire rockets and kill, maim and terrorize.
He called for Israel to throw out the Israeli settlers and tear down their homes. He did not call for Palestine to arrest, prosecute and punish their terrorists. He demanded that Israel treat the Palestinians better!
Israel has had to close the border between them and Palestine to prevent homicide bombers from entering and blowing up pizza parlors, night clubs and buses full of innocent citizens, including babies and children. Palestinians who wish to enter Israel can do so after the IDF checks them for bombs and other hidden weapons. Obama called for Israel to remove restrictions which he thinks are oppressive. Most sane people think that bombing is oppressive and checking everyone entering Israel from the bombing capital of the region is absolutely necessary.
This latest attack occurred in the town of Sderot while the Mayor of Rome, Gianni Alemanno, was touring the town with the father of IDF soldier, Gilad Schalit, captured and held by Hamas for years. Obama didn’t publically demand that Hamas release Schalit immediately and stop kidnapping Israelis. He did say that the situation in Sderot was unacceptable, according to an article in The Jerusalem Post on May 19, 2009. http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1242212415904&pagename=JPost%2FJPA…
Rather than stand up for Israel like an ally should, Obama sympathizes with Palestinians. Could it be because he has been very good friends, for many years, with Rashid and Mona Khalidi who actually worked for the PLO, Palestinian Liberation Org., a group of terrorists then led by the infamous killer, Yassar Arrafat of Egypt? You really should read about Khalidi, Obama’s good friend at http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=1347. Obama once said that he and Michelle have eaten many good meals at the home of the Khalidi’s.
The Obama administration, read that Obama the King, intends to force Israel into an untenable situation making Palestine a state and opening borders so they can cross into Israel at any time. Israel has been slapped in the face by her once ally, the U.S.
