Obama has many ties to extremist groups as illustrated in this article.
From the article:♦
One seemingly consistent theme running throughout Barack Obama’s career is his comfort with aligning himself with people who are anti-Israel advocates. This ease around Israel animus has taken various forms. As Obama has continued his political ascent, he has moved up the prestige scale in terms of his associates. Early on in his career he chose a church headed by a former Black Muslim who is a harsh anti-Israel advocate and who may be seen as tinged with anti-Semitism. This church is a member of a denomination whose governing body has taken a series of anti-Israel actions.As his political fortunes and ambition climbed, he found support from George Soros, multibillionaire promoter of groups that have been consistently harsh and biased critics of the American-Israel relationship.Obama’s soothing and inspiring oratory sometimes vanishes when he talks of the Middle East. Indeed, his off-the-cuff remarks have been uniformly taken by supporters of Israel as signs that the inner Obama does not truly support Israel despite what his canned speeches and essays may contain.Now that Obama has become a leading Presidential candidate, he has assembled a body of foreign policy advisers who signal that a President Obama would likely have an approach towards Israel radically at odds with those of previous Presidents (both Republican and Democrat). A group of experts collected by the Israeli liberal newspaper Haaretz deemed him to be the candidate likely to be least supportive of Israel. He is the candidate most favored by the Arab-American community.
As an American who supports Israels right to exist and who supports their security efforts, I don’t want a President who would undermine our ties to Israel. Israel is the only democracy in that area of the world. Every Islamic country is led by an autocrat, a despot, an absolute monarchy or a thug. Israel has an elected assembly with a PM chosen by coalition. Their system is similar to that of Britain. Religious freedom is a given in Israel. Religious freedom is not a given anywhere else in that area. Religious oppression is the rule in most Muslim countries. It is a certainty in the countries surrounding Israel. It will be a certainty in a Palestinian State.
Obama has too many ties to Islam for my tastes. Even stranger is his ties to the “Black Muslims” and their leader Louis Farakhan. Farakhan, who was given an honorary award by Jeremiah Wright, is an American terrorist. Reverend Wright had this to say about Farakhan; “His integrity and honesty have secured him a place in history as one of the nation’s most powerful critics. Farakhan the murderer. Farakhan the racist. Farakhan calls White People inhuman. He calls Judaism a gutter religion. He calls the Pope the anti-Christ. Imagine a Christion saying these things about Judaism; a white person calling Black People inhuman. Farakhan ordered the murder of Malcolm X. I would be in now way surprised to find out that he was involved in the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr and Bobby Kennedy. Sirhan Sirhan was a Muslim after all. I don’t want Louis Farakhan as back room adviser to the President of the United States of America.
