Personally I find the kind of hysteria that greeted a Ron Paul or an Obama to be disturbing. This is not the response of reasoned voters trying to do their best for their country, it's the shrill insanity of people frantically grasping onto a savior. It reminds me of the mob chasing Brian once his promise of salvation is revealed to be an enigma, except cynical politicians thrive on passing themselves off as saviors and the mob is happy to cheer it on.
But people who embrace men as saviors become madmen themselves. Obama is a cipher and a disturbing one. A man whose path has been paved to power through a campaign of dirty tricks. A man with a Muslim background and ties to the Nation of Islam and a member of a racist church. A man who tries to hide his hatred for America and Israel behind a false veneer of friendliness.
Barack Obama has been very careful not to position himself as Reverend Jesse Jackson or Reverend Al Sharpton as a promoter of “The Black Cause.” He has been groomed, wisely so, to be seen more as a unifier, rather than one who speaks only for the hurt of Black people. In this, he has tapped the dissatisfaction of many Whites, Blacks, Hispanics and Asians across the spectrum, because who cares what color you are if you can save them from the mess that they find themselves in.
Minister Louis Farrakhan
As Charles Krauthammer writes (via LGF)
There’s no better path to success than getting people to buy a free commodity. Like the genius who figured out how to get people to pay for water: Bottle it (Aquafina was revealed to be nothing more than reprocessed tap water) and charge more than they pay for gasoline. Or consider how Google found a way to sell dictionary nouns — boat, shoe, clock — by charging advertisers zillions to be listed whenever the word is searched.
And now, in the most amazing trick of all, a silver-tongued freshman senator has found a way to sell hope. To get it, you need only give him your vote. Barack Obama is getting millions.
As Lemon Lime Moon has pointed out
Women screaming, crying , weeping hysterically as B. Hussein Obama is said to be mesmerizing, charismatic.Those asked why have no clue as to why they cry and scream and get thrilled at a recent rally in Maryland. Screaming "I love you, I love you" while Obama yelled ," I love you back", the women had tears streaming down their faces and stood transfixed in semi-stupors just as in the days of Adolf H.Messianic candidates are by their very nature an attack on democracy and a dangerous one.
Meanwhile Bookworm has a post on Obama and how racist ideas are being used to bamboozle people into voting for him
Eric at Conservative Liberal covers it further
My 5th grader came home from school and told me that all the kids were saying that people should vote for Obama because he’s black.
I asked, “Do they know anything else about him?”
“No,” she replied. “They’re just saying [read: their parents are just saying] that people should vote for him because he’s black.”
My next question: “Should people vote against him because he’s black?”
“Oh, no,” she answered. “That’s racist.”
“Then why,” I asked, “is it any less racist to vote for him simply because of the color of his skin? Any decision we make about someone solely because of their skin color is racist. People should be voting for him based on his experience, skill, and beliefs, not because of his skin color.”
By focusing on the race, ethnicity or gender the Left prevents these irrelevant characteristics from being viewed as irrelevant. In fact, the closest thing to government-sponsored discrimination is the Affirmative Action, so loved by the Left. Supposedly this rights some wrong that was perpetrated over 40 years ago. But as I commented, so I, as a Jew, was discriminated against in Odessa. Does this fact mean that I should condone anti-Russian discrimination in Tashkent?
At the Center for Vigilant Freedom meanwhile, more ties between Obama and Islamists, Muslims for Obama for Sharia Law
the case against Jewish support for Obama and the National Jewish democratic Council
With supporters like these, will Obama also endorse shariah as a “separate but equal” legal system as part of his party platform? Because shariah’s so filled with …Hope for the Ummah? Audacity for the jihadists? But hey, it would be CHANGE so don’t worry….
Of course, there aren’t enough Muslims in the U.S. to constitute much of a voting block - 2-3 million estimated of a population well north of 300 milliion.
Not that this has stopped Gordon England or George Bush from meeting with the leaders of Muslim Brotherhood front groups, in the name of reaching out to this miniscule constituency. And changing U.S. policy domestic and foreign to appease them.
But then that was always about pleasing media, foreign and plutocratic elites, not winning elections.
Muslims for Obama, a new interest group, is preparing their 2009 legislative calendar:
Ira Forman has just set the standard that disqualifies a candidate for associating himself with values and ideologies that are repugnant to modern society... The bottom line is that the National Jewish Democratic Council said, whether it meant to say it or not, that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are unfit to hold public office. Since this comes from a Democratic and not a Republican organization, the effect should be absolutely devastating.
Meanwhile in more Islamist news over at the Maverick News Network, the Muslim Brotherhood it appears is fighting for female genital mutilation
Over at the Fiery Spirited Zionist, reports of Iranian newspapers threatening Westerners
An op-ed in the Iranian daily Kayhan by Hossein Shariatmadari who is close to Iran's supreme leader Ali Khamenei, threatened America and Europe that their support of Israel will cost them. He called upon muslims to attack American, European, Israeli and Jewish "sensitive centers" and stressed that civilians must be harmed in order to change their policies toward Israel.
This is effectively a call to terrorism from the Iranian government against America, Europe and Israel. Also note once again that Iran lists both Israeli and Jewish, putting the lie to the Anti-Zionist but not Anti-Semitic argument.
The Anti-Racist blog meanwhile is doing a great job of covering the so-called Palestine Awareness Week
Meanwhile to close the post, over at the Keli Ata blog is a post and video on a Kassam alert at a kindergarten in Sderot, a town under siege by Islamic terrorism.
The alarm literally gives them seconds to get into a shelter. Once inside the school some of the children scream and cry, others count down to one, and another group sings, "Exactly today, years ago, we came from the womb right to this situation."
The whole thing stops you right in your tracks, and if you're not infuriated by the whole situation then you've got ice water coursing through you veins.
Last Friday night two boys ages eight and nineteen respectively were hit by a kassam. The eight year old screamed "Save me! Save me!" Who wouldn't try to save him and others like him?
I know people say the residents of Sderot should just leave. Just leave? To what avail? So that the Palestinians can invade it and encrouch on other Israeli communities? Eventually, Israel will be reduced to a small and easily annihiliated ghetto, that's what will happen.
Yesterday I read an article on A7 in which some French official said school children shouldn't be taught about the Holocaust because "it's too heavy a burden to carry."
What kind of burden are the children in Sderot and throughout Israel carrying everyday? It's too much to ask of babies just out of their mothers wombs.
And so ends another week at Sultan Knish

Isn't Charles Krathammer a George W. Bush apologist? Bush has warred against the Jews in Israel for seven long years. Krathammer has done nothing but support this world leader. Hasn't he?
Thanks for the link.
what does this have to do with bush?ReplyDelete
TY for the link and posting the video so people can see with their eyes and hear with their ears what is happening in Sderot.ReplyDelete
What does it have do with Bush? Plenty. Charles Krauthammer lacks credibility with me as do many conservative Jewish writers, authors, etc., who like Krathammer and D. Horowitz are Republican party toadies and George W. Bush-apologists. They have all been silent for seven long years as Bush has made war on the Jews in Israel. Now all of a sudden they are warning us that we have the Muslim terrorist's best friend in the offing for U.S. president. Only now they are finding their voice.ReplyDelete
The Bush White House expressed satisfaction last week when Immad Mugniyeh was assassinated in Syria, presumably by the Mossad.
Mugniyeh and other Shiite youths were recruited during the later part of 1975 by Fatah, "the largest single component of the PLO."
Force 17 guarded Yasser Arafat and the "old-line leadership" of the PLO. Bush's chosen peace partner is Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen). Bush calls Abbas a man dedicated to peace. Abbas is one of five founding fathers of Fatah. Fatah, from its inception, has been committed to the notion of armed struggle, that is jihad. Abbas is believed by many to have funded the 1972 slaughter of Israeli athletes at Munich by Black September. Abbas is a certified Holocaust denier and arch-terrorist. Fatah is an enemy of the United States as well as Israel.
Fatah officials told The Jerusalem Post that Mugniyeh had been very close to Yasser Arafat when the PLO was based in Beirut. Abbas was Arafat's right hand man. "We're very proud to have had a Palestinian holding such a high position in Hizbullah," said a Fatah official who said he had known Mughniyeh well during the '70s and '80s, according to the J. Post. These are President Bush's peace partners.
Krathammer supports George W. Bush all the while Mr. Bush is lying to the public. This "peace" process is certainly a charade as David Hornik pointed out in a Frontpage column last week, but it is worse than a charade. George W. Bush has convinced the American public that Israel's war has nothing to do with the global war on terrorism or the global jihad. Otherwise why is Bush negotiating Israel's annihilation at the hands of brutal arch-terrorists / jihadists?
Why doesn't Krathammer expose the hypocrisy and the deceit coming from this enemy of our people? Bush is a friend of jihadists; Saudi jihadists, Palestinian jihadists, a friend of Saudi Wahhabi lobby here in the U.S. Syrian jihadists were invited to the recent Annapolis conference.
LGF wrote: On September 17, 2001, six days after the worst Islamic terror attacks ever on US soil, President Bush stood next to CAIR'S Nihad Awad at the Islamic Center of Washington DC, and pronounced ‘Islam is Peace’.
Mr. Bush opined: "These acts of violence against innocents violate the fundamental tenets of the Islamic faith. And it's important for my fellow Americans to understand that.... The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam. That's not what Islam is all about. Islam is peace."
Article III Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution defines treason against the United States as "giving (our enemies) aid and comfort."
I'm not Krauthammer's biggest fan, as I've noted he supported Disengagement at the time though he later admitted it was a mistake, but he is right hereReplyDelete

In America it is taught ad neaseum to Jewish kids, but they get the lesson wrong.
Instaed of replacing Judaism with Holocaust , or universalizing it so we can save Darfur, or learning that the Pope could have done more, what we really need to learn is how American Jewry (read:liberal) was disgracefully indifferant , and when push comes to shove will f-ck Israel the waty they did Eastern Europe.
Just like FDR was more important then, abortion etal is more important now.
I'm sorry, I meant to make clear, Mughniyeh was a member of Force 17.ReplyDelete
He guarded Yasser Arafat, Mahmoud Abbas and the other founding fathers of Fatah.
I'm not saying Krauthammer is wrong about Obama. Somehow I find it dicreditable that we have Jewish writers, activist and colomnists that prefer to avert their gaze from what this administration is doing, in the name of party unity, or because "the Democrats are worse."
If we get President Obama in November, we get what we deserve. Limbaugh says McCain will destroy the party if he becomes president. Peggy Noonan wrote this is rubbish. George W. Bush destroyed the party.
After I publicly critcized Bush in our newspaper and on radio late September 2004, the officers of our local party sought my removal. Now look at our party.
Stiffling dissent is a form of fascism. While I would agree the Democrats have fascist tendencies, so does the GOP to its discredit.
A President Obama will be terrible for the U.S. On the other hand he might be good for Israel in a perverse kind of way. John McCain, like Bush, will be a trusted friend in Israeli circles. I'm not so sure about a President Obama. If Jews in Israel view Obama as a kindred spirit to David Duke and Louis Farrakhan, so much the better.
In the case of the French, the dispute is about teaching children about Holocaust victims their own age, to develop empathy. But unless that translates into empathy for example, the kindergarten kids in Sderot...I don't see the real purpose.ReplyDelete
When they're older they should be taught who was responsible for the Holocaust and who is responsible for what is happening in Israel.
It boggles my mind how Americans can be against abortion and totally indifferent to kids running for their lives in Israel.
BTW, the French president is all in favor of teaching school children about the Holocaust; it's liberals who are against it.
He seems to be the only European leader with his head on straight.
a president obama would be good for israel in the same way that electing someone who support hamas but is popular among jews would be good for israel...ReplyDelete
because in fact they're the same thing
by your logic, maybe we should vote David Duke for President, at least he would be a clearly defined enemy
I said earlier, I would not vote for someone who would kill me and my family. Clearly, Republican party activist, David Duke would murder me and my Jewish family. Duke would set up concentration camps, maybe. Duke's writings, like right-wing extremist, Adlof Hitler's are clear. Duke would annihilate or deport American Jews with full Republican party support, maybe. My party has lost its marbles.ReplyDelete
The burden is on you to produce from Obama's writings and speeches, he would do similar to Duke; that Obama is a leftist anti-Semite similar to the right-wing extremist Duke. If you can produce this evidence, I am with you.
I agree, Obama's associations are troubling, but so are Bush's associations troubling. Did you see Bush kissing and holding hands with then Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz at his Crawford, Texas ranch?
Obama is a leftist. Most leftists are troubling. David Duke is on the extreme right however.
I want evidence from you.
is there any president who hasn't been tied to saudi arabia in the last 3 decades?ReplyDelete
the nation of islam is the equivalent of the nazi party, and obama has ties to everyone from sharpton to farrakhan to edward said, people who have actually killed jews or worked with those who have

Obama’s efforts to connect to the Republican Party, specifically Bush, and Dick Chaney, of the Halliburton Company, dates back to the Presidents Grandfather, Prescott Bush, and indeed Chaney was once an executive officer of Halliburton.ReplyDelete
The American military pounds Iraq with Artillary, bombs, and the like, destroying large sections of cities, and infra-structures, then Halliburton comes in to rebuild. Halliburton and Halliburton associated companies have raked in ten’s of billions.
Obama is just like the BIG HALIBURTAN. Haliburton has contracted to build detention centers in the U.S. similiar to the one in Quantanammo Bay, Cuba. Halliburton does nothing to earn the Two Dollars for each meal an American Serviceman in Iraq eats.
Halliburton was scheduled to take control of the Dubai Ports in The United Arab Emiirate. The deal was canceled when Bush was unable to affect the transfer of the American Ports.
Now we see what some might suspect as similiar financial escapading from the Democrats.
Two years ago, Iraq’s Ministry of Electricity gave a $50 million contract to a start-up security company - Companion- owned by now-indicted businessman (TONY REZKO) Tony Rezko and a onetime Chicago cop, Daniel T. Frawley, to train Iraqi power-plant guards in the United States. An Iraqi leadership change left the deal in limbo. Now the company, Companion Security, is working to revive its contract.
Involved along with Antoin “Tony” Rezco, long time friend and neighbor of Democratic Presidential hopeful Barack Obama, and former cop Daniel T. Frawley, is Aiham Alsammarae. Alsammarae was accused of financial corruption by Iraqi authorities and jailed in Iraq last year before escaping and returning here.
LIKE FATHER LIKE SON --
Recently, Obama's campaign staff have been vetted by the IRS to disclose his connection to the criminal money generating underworld. Besides, his connections to the REZCO MAFIA types, his up-coming tax fraud charges — Obama needs to disclose why he is a MUSLIM "PATWANG-FWEEE" and disclose Obama's MUSLIM Farrakhan mob connection to Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ. Its minister, and Obama's spiritual adviser, is the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. In 1982, the church launched Trumpet Newsmagazine; Wright's daughters serve as publisher and executive editor. Every year, the magazine makes awards in various categories. Last year, it gave the Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. Trumpeter Award to a man it said "truly epitomized greatness." That man is Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan and Chicago's Trinity United Church are trumpeting Barack Obama AKA Barack Hussein Obama as the second coming of the messiah.
