Will the REAL Barack Obama Stand Up?
Saul Alinsky helped to establish the confrontational political tactics that characterized the 1960s and have remained central to all subsequent revolutionary movements in the United States. Obama never met Alinsky personally; Alinsky died when Obama was a young boy, BUT Obama was trained by the Alinsky-founded Industrial Areas Foundation in Chicago and worked for an affiliate of the Gamaliel Foundation, whose modus operandi for the creation of “a more just and democratic society” is rooted firmly in the Alinsky method.

In the Alinsky model, “organizing” is a euphemism for “revolution” - a wholesale revolution whose ultimate OBJECTIVE is the systematic acquisition of power by a purportedly OPPRESSED segment of the population, and the RADICAL transformation of America’s social and economic structure. Is this why Obama is running on a platform of “CHANGE?” The GOAL is to foment enough public discontent, moral confusion, and outright chaos to spark the social upheaval that Marx, Engels, and Lenin predicted. The result would be a revolution whose foot soldiers view the status quo as fatally flawed and wholly unworthy of salvaging. The theory says that the people will settle for nothing less than the status quo’s complete collapse - to be followed by the erection of an entirely NEW SYSTEM upon its ruins. TOWARD THE END, they will be apt to follow the lead of charismatic radical organizers, such as Obama, who project an aura of confidence and vision, and whom profess to clearly understand what type of societal “CHANGES” are needed.

Alinsky’s brand of revolution was not characterized by dramatic, sweeping, overnight transformations of social institutions. Richard Poe put it this way: “Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate (infiltrate) existing institutions such as churches, unions, and political parties.” Alinsky advised organizers and their disciples (Obama) to quietly, subtly gain influence within the decision-making ranks of these institutions, and to INTRODUCE CHANGES from the platform.

For several years, Obama TAUGHT WORKSHOPS on the Alinsky method. Now he wants to be President and implement these social CHANGES toward the New World Order!!!

The Chicago Connection: Hillary, Obama and the Cult of Alinsky
The Turrish Weekly - Richard Poe
Most Americans have never heard of Saul Alinsky. Yet his shadow darkens our coming election. Democrat frontrunners Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both worship at the altar of Alinskyism.

In a 1971 book called Rules for Radicals, Alinsky scolded the Sixties LEFT for scaring off potential converts in Middle America. True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on suits, and infiltrate the system from within.

In his native Chicago, Alinsky courted power wherever he found it. His alliance with prominent Catholic clerics, such as Bishop Bernard Shell, gave him respectability. His friendship with crime bosses such as Frank Nitti, Al Capone’s second-in-command, gave Alinsky clout on the street.

In the Richard Poe and David Horowitz book - The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton and Sixties Radicals Seized Control of the Democratic Party, they trace the rise of Alinsky’s political influence since the 1930s. He excelled at wooing wealthy financiers. Start-up money for his Industrial Areas Foundation, a school for radical organizers, came from department store mogul Marshall Field III, Sears Roebuck heiress Adele Rosenwald Levy, and Gardiner Howland Shaw, an assistant secretary of state for Franklin Roosevelt.

One Alinsky benefactor was Wall Street investment banker Eugene Meyer, who served as Chairman of the Federal Board (Illuminati controlled working for a one-world-government) from 1930 to 1933. Meyer and his wife, Agnes, co-owned The Washington Post newspaper. They used their newspaper to promote Alinsky.

Agnes Meyer personally wrote a six-part series in 1945, praising Alinsky’s work in Chicago slums. Her series, called “The Orderly Revolution,” made Alinsky famous. President Truman ordered 100 reprints of it. During the Sixties, Alinsky wielded tremendous power from behind the scenes.

When President Johnson launched his War on Poverty in 1964, Alinsky allies infiltrated the program, steering federal money into Alinsky projects.

In 1966, Senator Robert Kennedy allied himself with union Cesar Chavez, an Alinsky disciple. After race riots shook Rochester, New York, Alinsky descended on the city and began pressuring Eastman-Kodak to hire more blacks people Kennedy supported Alinsky’s shakedown. The two men had an “understanding,” Alinsky later wrote.

Alinsky’s crowning achievement was his recruitment of a young high school student named Hillary Rodham. She met Alinsky through a radical church group. Hillary wrote an analysis of Alinsky’s methods for her senior thesis at Wellesley College, where every professor was a Marxist at that time. They remained friends until Alinsky’s death in 1972.

Alinsky tried to hire Hillary as a community organizer, but she chose instead to attend Yale Law School. Nonetheless, Alinsky’s network continued guiding Hillary’s career.

Fresh out of law school at age 26, Hillary received a prestigious appointment to the House Judiciary Committee’s Watergate investigation team in 1974. She got the job on the recommendation of Peter and Marian Wright Edelman. The Edelmans have been trusted mentors of Hillary since 1969. New Republic editor, Martin Peretz, called Marian “Hillary’s closest sister and ideological soul mate.” Marian Wright Edelman also happens to be an Alinskyite, having served on the Board of Trustees of Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation.

Many leftists view Hillary as a sell-out because she claims to hold moderate views on some issues. However, Hillary is simply following Alinsky’s counsel to DO and SAY whatever it takes to GAIN POWER.

Barack Obama is also an Alinskyite. Trained by Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation, Obama spent years teaching workshops on the Alinsky method. In 1985 he began a four-year stint as a community organizer in Chicago, working for an Alinskyite group called the Developing Communities Project. Later, he worked with ACORN and its offshoot Project Vote, both creations of the Alinsky network. Maude Hurd is current President of ACORN.

Camouflage is KEY to Alinsky-style organizing. While trying to build coalitions of black churches in Chicago, Obama caught flak for NOT attending church. HE BECAME AN INSTANT CHURCHGOER. Obama said he had a 20-year church attendance. TRUE! THIS WAS ONLY OUT OF NECESSITY TO THE CAUSE OF INFILTRATING CHURCHES!!!

The FACT that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama share an Alinskyite background tells us two thing. First, they are leftists, DEDICATED TO OVERTHROWING OUR CONSTITUTIONAL SYSTEM. Second, they will go to ANY LENGTH to CONCEAL THEIR RADICALISM FROM THE PUBLIC.

That is the Alinsky method, which is today’s Democratic Party!!!

Bill Ayers & Obama
Along with his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, Bill Ayers was a 1960s leader of the homegrown terrorist group Weatherman, a Communist-driven splinter faction of Students for a Democratic Society. Characterizing Weatherman as “an American Red Army,” Ayers summed up the organization’s ideology as follows: “Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents.” Today, Ayers is a professor of education and a Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois.

In the mid-1990s, Ayers and Dohrn hosted meetings at their Chicago home to introduce Barack Obama to their neighbors during his first run for the Illinois Senate. Ayers also contributed money to Obama’s 1996 Senate campaign.

In his 2001 screed (a long written diatribe), Fugitive Days, Ayers boasts that he “participated in the bombings of New York City Police Headquarters in 1970, of the Capitol building in 1971, and the Pentagon in 1972.” All told, Ayers and the Weatherman were responsible for some 30 bombings aimed at destroying the defense and security infrastructures of the United States. “I don’t regret setting bombs,” said Ayers in 2001. “I feel we didn’t do enough.” In Fugitive Days, Ayers reflects on whether or not he might use bombs against the U.S. in the future. “I can’t imagine entirely dismissing the possibly,” he wrote.

In 1999 Ayers joined the Woods Fund of Chicago, where he served as a director alongside Barack Obama until Obama left the Woods’ board in December 2002. In 2002 (while Obama was still on the board), the Woods Fund made a grant to Northwestern University Law School’s Children and Family Justice Center, where Ayer’s wife, Bernardine Dohrn, was employed.

At a 2007 reunion of former members of the Weatherman Underground and Students for a Democratic Society, Ayers complained about “a kind of rising incipient American form of fascism,” America’s “jingoistic patriotism, unprecedented and unapologetic military expansion, white supremacy ..., attacks on women and girls, violent attacks, growing surveillance in every sphere of our lives, ... the targeting of gay and lesbian people ...”

In 2008 the Obama campaign produced a fact sheet pronouncing Ayers and Dohrn to be “respectable” members of the “mainstream” community.

Obama’s World
While speaking on a Sunday at the National Council of La Raza’s annual convention, Barack Obama said: “The [immigration] system isn’t working when 12 million people live in hiding, and hundreds of thousands cross our borders illegally each year, when companies hire undocumented immigrants instead of legal citizens to avoid paying overtime or to avoid a union; when communities are terrorized by ICE immigration raids; when nursing mothers are torn from their babies; when children come home from school to find their parents missing; when people are detained without access to legal counsel.”

Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. is a United States Senator from Illinois. In 2008 it appears he has defeated Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.

Obama was born in 1961 in Hawaii to a white mother from Kansas and a black Muslim father from Kenya who met as students at the University of Hawaii. Obama describes his mother, Anna, in his 1995 memoir, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, as a “lonely witness for secular humanism, a soldier for New Deal, Peace Corps, [and] position-paper liberalism.”

His father, Barack Obama, Sr., left his rural Luo-speaking village and his Muslim father to become an “agnostic” [know nothing] to study economics abroad. His son was two years old when the elder Barack left the boy and his mother, to return to Harvard, then on to Kenya where he became a globe-traveling economist for the government.

When young Obama was six, his mother married an Indonesian oil manager, supposedly a “non-practicing Muslim.” The family moved to Jakarta, where Barack’s half-sister, Maya, was born. The family lived there four years.

Concerning Barack Obama’s religious upbringing, Islam scholar Daniel Pipes reported the following:

“In Islam, religion passes from the father to the child. Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. was a Muslim who named his boy Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. Only Muslim children are named ‘Hussein’ ... [Barack Obama’s] stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, was also a Muslim. In fact, as Obama’s half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng explained to Jodi Kantor of the New York Times: ‘My whole family was Muslim, and most of the people I knew were Muslim.’ An Indonesian publication, the Banjarasin Post reports a former classmate, Rony Amir, recalling that ‘All the relatives of Barry’s [Barack’s] father were very devout Muslims.’”

Obama’s good friend, the attorney and novelist, Scott Turow, wrote that Obama as a child spent “two years in a Muslim school, then two more in a Catholic school.” School records show that when Obama attended Catholic school, he was enrolled AS A MUSLIM!

Paul Watson of the Los Angeles Times learned from Obama’s childhood friends that “Obama went to Friday prayers at the local mosque.” Kim Barker of the Chicago Tribune found that “Obama occasionally followed his stepfather to the mosque for Friday prayers.” An Indonesian friend of Obama, Zulfin Adi, states that “[Obama] WAS Muslim! He went to the mosque. I remember him wearing a sarong [a garment associated with Muslims].” The aforementioned Rony Amir describes Obama as “previously quite religious in Islam.”

In December 2007 Obama said, “I’ve always been a Christian. The only connection I’ve had to Islam is that my grandfather on my father’s side came from that country [Kenya]. But I’ve never practiced Islam.” In February 2008 he elaborated, “I have never been a Muslim ... Other than my name and the fact that I lived in a populous Muslim country for four years when I was a child [Indonesia 1967-71]. I have very little connection to the Islamic religion.”

In the 1970s the Obama family became friendly with Frank Marshall Davis (1905-1987), a black writer and fellow Hawaiian resident. Davis wrote for the Honolulu Record (a Communist newspaper) and was a known member of the Soviet-controlled Communist Party USA. He soon became the young Barack Obama’s mentor and advisor.

In Dreams From My Father, Obama wrote about Davis but does not reveal his full name, identifying him only as “a poet named Frank” - a man with much “hard earned knowledge” who had known “some modest notoriety once” but was now “pushing eighty.” Several sources have confirmed that Obama’s “Frank” was indeed Frank Marshall Davis. Among those sources included Professor Gerald Horne, Dr. Kathryn Takara, and libertarian writer Trevor Loudon. When the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee in 1956 asked Davis to affirm or deny his membership in the Communist Party, he refused to respond, citing the Fifth Amendment. It was also revealed in a news conference that Davis began his Communist career in Chicago and was a friend of the singer Paul Robeson and the longshore union official, Harry Bridges, both secret Communist Party members.

In his book, Obama recounts how, just prior to heading off to Occidental College in California in 1979, he spent some time with “Frank and his old Black Power dashiki self.” Obama wrote that “Frank” told him college was merely “an advanced degree in compromise,” and cautioned the young man not to “start believing what they tell you about equal opportunity and the American way and all that sh__.”

Occidental College is where Communist Derek Shearer, advisor to President Bill Clinton, taught. While there Shearer wrote his 1980 book - Economic Democracy, the Socialist blueprint for our economy. Obama was in “good[?]” company!!!

From Occidental, Obama transferred to Columbia University in New York City, where he graduated in 1983 with a degree in political science. He applied for work as a community organizer (Communist Saul Alinsky’s creation) with groups across the United States while working as a writer and financial analyst for Business International Corporation.

One small group of 20-odd churches in Chicago offered Obama a job helping residents of poor, predominantly black, Far South Side neighborhoods. He moved to Chicago, and in June 1985 became Director of the Developing Communities Project, working for the next three years on efforts that ranged from job training to school reform to hazardous waste cleanup.

Remember, Obama was trained by the Saul Alinsky-founded Industrial Areas Foundation in Chicago. The Developing Communities Project, for which he worked, was an affiliate of the Gamaliel Foundation, whose modus operandi of “a more just and democratic society” is firmly rooted in Alinsky’s methods. Alinsky was known for helping to establish the aggressive political tactics that characterized the 1960s and have remained central to all revolutionary movements in the United States since that time.

One of Obama’s early mentors in the Alinsky method, Mike Kruglik, would later say the following about Obama: “He was a natural, the undisputed master of agitation, who could engage a room full of recruiting targets in a rapid-fire Socratic dialogue, nudging them to admit that they were not living up to their own standards. As with the panhandler, he could be aggressive and confrontational. With probing, sometimes personal questions, he would pinpoint the source of pain in their lives, tearing down their egos just enough before dangling a carrot of hope that they could make things better.”

Beginning in the mid-1980s, Obama worked with ACORN, a creation of the Alinsky network. ACORN is a grass roots political organization that grew out of George Wiley’s National Welfare Rights Organization, whose members in the late 1960s and early 70s invaded welfare offices across the U.S., often violently, bullying social workers and loudly demanding every penny to which the law “entitled” them!

Obama also worked for Project Vote, the voter-mobilization arm of ACORN. Project Vote’s professed purpose is to carry out “non-partisan” voter-registration drives, to counsel voters on their rights, and to litigate [law suits] on behalf of voting rights, focusing on the rights of the poor and the “disenfranchised.”

In 1988 Obama enrolled at Harvard Law School, where he became the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. He graduated magna cum laude in 1991.

Michelle Obama. In 1992, Obama married Michelle Robinson. One of her statements during the presidential campaign was: “For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country and not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change. And I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction and just not feeling so alone in my frustration and disappointment.”

The desperation, frustration, and disappointment visible on Michelle Obama’s face are not new to the candidate’s wife. Steve Sailer, Rod Dreher, and other commentators have noted that they were the theme of her undergraduate thesis on the subject of “blackness” at Princeton University. No matter what the good intentions were of Princeton, which founded her fortunes as a well-paid corporate lawyer, she wrote: “My experiences at Princeton have made me far more aware of my ‘Blackness’ than ever before. I have found that at Princeton no matter how liberal and open minded some of my White professors and classmates try to be toward me, I sometimes feel like a visitor on campus; as if I really don’t belong.”

Never underestimate the influence of a wife who ridicules her husband in public. She told a fund raiser crowd in February 2007: “I have some difficulty reconciling the two images I have of Barack Obama. There’s Barack Obama the phenomenon. He’s an amazing orator, Harvard Law Review, best-selling author, Grammy winner. Pretty amazing, right? And then there’s the Barack Obama that lives with me in my house, and that guy’s a little less impressive.”

“For some reason this guy still can’t manage to put the butter up when he makes toast, secure the bread so that it doesn’t get stale, and his five-year-old is still better at making the bed than he is.” New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd reported at the time, “She added that the TV version of Barack Obama sounded really interesting and that she’d like to meet him sometime.” Michelle’s handlers have convinced her to be more tactful since then.

“Frustration” and “disappointment” have dogged Michelle Obama these past 20 years, despite her $300,000 a year salary and corporate board memberships. It is hard for the descendants of slaves not to resent America. They were not voluntary immigrants, but kidnap victims, subjected to a century of second-class citizenship even after the Civil War ended slavery. Blackness is NOT the issue. General Colin Powell, whose parents chose to immigrate to America from the West Indies, saw America just as other immigrants do, as a land of opportunity. Obama’s choice of a wife is a fail safe indicator of his own sentiments. Spouses do not necessarily share their likes, but they must have their hatreds in common. Obama imbibed this hatred with his mother’s milk.

Barack Obama. In 1993, Barack Obama took a job as a litigator of voting rights and employment cases with the law firm of Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland, P.C., where he remains a Counsel to this day. In 1993 he also became a lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School, another position he still holds.

In 1994, Obama worked for Davis Miner on a case titled Barnett v. Daley, where he was part of a legal team that challenged the racial makeup of Chicago’s voting districts. The Obama team sought to raise the number of black super-majority districts from 19 to 24. According to the judge in the case, Richard Posner, Obama and his fellow litigates held that “no black aldermanic candidate in Chicago has ever beaten a white in a ward that has a black majority of less than 62.6 percent, and it is emphatic that the ward in which the population is 55 percent black is not a black ward - is indeed a white ward, even though only 42 percent of the population is white.”

In the 1995 case known as Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank, Obama and his fellow Davis Miner attorneys charged that Citibank was making too few loans to black applicants. They won the case.

Also in 1995, Obama sued, on behalf of ACORN, for the implementation of the Motor Voter law in Illinois. Jim Edgar, the state’s Republican Governor, opposed the law because he believed that allowing voters to register using only a postcard would breed widespread fraud.

ACORN would later invite Obama to help train its staff. Moreover, Obama eventually would sit on the Board of the Woods Fund of Chicago, which gave a number of sizable grants to ACORN.

In 1995 Obama, along with such notables as Al Sharpton and Jeremiah Wright, helped organize the Washington, DC-based Million Man March which featured Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Obama said in the aftermath of the March:

“What I saw was a powerful demonstration of an impulse and need for African-American men to come together to recognize each other and affirm our rightful place in society. ... Historically, African-Americans have turned inward and towards black nationalism whenever they have a sense, as we do now, that the mainstream has rebuffed us, and that white Americans couldn’t care less about the profound problems African-Americans are facing.”

In the mid-1990s, Obama developed a friendship with fellow Chicagoans Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn, formerly of the Communist/Terror Weatherman organization of the 1960s. A notable attendee at the Ayers/Dohrn-hosted political gatherings was Democratic state senator Alice J. Palmer of the Illinois 13th District, who soon developed a friendly relationship with Obama. Prior to her stint in politics, Palmer had worked for the Black Press Institute and was editor of the Black Press Review. During the Cold War, she supported the Soviet Union and spoke AGAINST the United States. In the 1980s she served as an executive board member of the U.S. Peace Council, which the FBI identified as a Communist front group - and which was an affiliate of the World Peace Council, an international Soviet front. Palmer participated in the World Peace Council’s Prague assembly in 1983, just as the USSR was launching its “nuclear freeze” movement, a scheme which would have frozen Soviet nuclear and military superiority in place.

State Senator Palmer was instrumental in Obama’s entry into politics. In 1995 Palmer decided to pursue an opportunity to run for a higher office when Mel Reynolds, the congressman from Illinois’ 2nd District, resigned from the House of Representatives amid a sexual scandal involving him and an underage campaign volunteer. As Palmer prepared to leave the state senate, SHE HAND-PICKED OBAMA as the person she most wanted to fill her newly vacated senate seat. Toward the end, she introduced Obama to party elders and donors as her preferred successor, and helped him gather the signatures required for getting his name placed on the ballot.

In November 1995, Jesse Jackson, Jr., defeated Palmer in a special election for Reynold’s empty congressional seat. She wanted her state senatorial seat back, but Obama challenged the signatures required. Many names were invalid, so Obama ran unopposed for the state senate seat.

Carl Davidson and Barack Obama
Another key supporter of Obama’s 1996 state senate campaign was Carl Davidson, a Marxist who in the 1960s had been a national secretary of Sudents for a Democratic Society, and a national leader of the anti-Vietnam War movement. In 1969 Davidson, along with Tom Hayden, helped launch the “Venceremos Brigades,” which covertly transported hundreds of young Americans to Cuba to help harvest sugar cane and interact with Havana’s communist revolutionary leadership. The Brigades were organized by Fidel Castro’s Cuban intelligence agency, which trained “brigadistas” in guerrilla warfare techniques, including the use of arms and explosives.

Carl Davidson IS an American Marxist who served as a national steering committee member of United for Peace and Justice, an organization chaired by the pro-Castro socialist Leslie Cagan. Davidson also co-chaired the group, Chicagoans Against War & Injustice, which has formed alliances with such organizations as the League of Women Voters, Rainbow/PUSH, Citizen Action, People for the American Way, the Progressive Caucus, the Congressional Black Caucus, and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. These all ultimately AIM to transform the United States into a socialist nation!!! Davidson advocates the mobilization of “new grass roots majorities required for progressive, systematic CHANGE!!!” This is exactly what Obama keeps saying - CHANGE! But he does not tell us what kind of change there will be. Are we getting the point? We will be CHANGED to complete socialism/communism!!!

In 1988 Davidson founded Networking for Democracy, a program encouraging high-school students to engage in “mass action” aimed at “tearing down the OLD STRUCTURES of race and class privilege” in the U.S. “and around the world.” Remember, President Roosevelt hired men in the 1930s to socialize America. They substituted the word Democracy and said it would hide the true meaning - SOCIALISM!!!

In 1992 Davidson became a leader of the newly formed Committees of Correspondence, a Marxist coalition of former Maoists, Trotskyists, and members of the Communist Party USA. In the mid-1990s Davidson was a major player in the Chicago branch of a Marxist political coalition known as the New Party, whose ENDORSEMENT Obama ACTIVELY SOUGHT, and received, for his Illinois state senate run in 1996. Obama used a number of New Party volunteers as campaign workers.

Obama’s 1996 senate campaign also secured the endorsement of the Democratic Socialists of America, the LARGEST socialist organization in the United States and the principle U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International. Obama’s affiliation with Democratic Socialists of America was long-standing, as evidenced by his reference in, Dreams From My Father. During his student years at Columbia University he “went to socialist conferences at Cooper Union,” a privately funded college for the advancement of science and art. From the early 1980s until 2004, Cooper Union had served as the usual venue of the annual Socialist Scholars Conference. According to Trevor Loudon, guest speakers at the conferences included “members of the Communist Party USA and its offshoot, the Committees of Correspondence, as well as Maoists, Trotskyites, black radicals, gay activists, and radical feminists.” Obama attended “conferenceS.” Attendance (plural) was by his choice.

In 1998 Obama became a board member of the Chicago-based Joyce Foundation. It is dedicated to radical environmentalism, social justice, prison reform, and INCREASED government funding for social services for minorities - pure socialism!!! Obama remained a board member for three years, during which the Joyce Foundation made grants to such communist/ socialist front organizations, such as the Chicago Lawyer’s Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, the Children’s Defense Fund of Ohio, the Jane Addams Resource Corporation, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, the World Wildlife Fund, the National Wildlife Federation, the Sierra Club Foundation, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the Izaak Walton League of America, the Rockefeller Family Fund, etc., etc. There are just too many to list here.

In 2000, Obama ran against former black Panther incumbent congressman, Bobby Rush, in the Democratic Primary for the U.S. House of Representatives. Rush denounced Obama as an “elitist” who “wasn’t black enough.” Rush crushed Obama by a nearly two-to-one vote margin. Obama returned to the Illinois state senate for another four-year term.

Rashid Khalidi and Obama
As noted earlier, during these years, Obama was a lecturer at the University of Chicago law school. He became friendly with Rashid Khalidi, a professor in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations. Obama’s radicalism seems to have become stronger from this relationship! The Los Angeles Times (April 10, 2008) has reported that Obama has been a “friend and frequent dinner companion” of Rashid Khalidi, a Palestinian-American and former Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) spokesman.

The PLO was joined by Communist Yasser Arafat. Khalidi is the Edward Said Professor of Arab Studies at Columbia University. Said, who died in 2003, was a fierce critic of Israel and a close associate of the late PLO leader Yasser Arafat. Khalidi held a fund raiser for Obama’s ill-fated congressional bid in 2000. He is also a co-founder of the Arab American Action Network, a group that provides social services to Arab-Americans in the Chicago area. His wife, Mona, was the other co-founder. Their Arab American Action Network also contended that Arab-Americans faced widespread discrimination in the United States. They also held the view that Israel’s creation in 1948 was a “catastrophe” for Arab people. In 2001 and 2002, while Obama served on the board of the Woods Fund of Chicago, grants were made totaling $75,000 to this Arab Network.

According to journalist John Batchelor, “AAAN vice-president Ali Abunimah of Electronic Intifada has remembered Mr. Obama’s speaking in 1999 AGAINST ‘Israeli occupation’ at a charity event for a West Bank refugee camp; and Mr. Abunimah “ ... has also recalled Mr. and Mrs. Obama at a fund raiser held for the then-Congressional candidate Obama in 2000 at Rashid and Mona Khalidi’s home, where Mr. Obama made convincing statements in support of the Palestinian cause.”

Isn’t it strange that in Obama’s July 2008 visit to Israel he spoke for the defense of Israel? Is it true that politicians will say anything - even lies - to get elected?
