Obama's Dangerous Contempt for Israel

I remember blogging about the hidden videotape of Obama bashing Israel back during the campaign and the fact that the L.A. Times refused to release the video.

WorldNetDaily has an article about it today: OBAMA WATCH CENTRAL
L.A. Times still conceals Obama terror video
Reportedly includes glowing testimonial for prof who excuses violence

Kinda explains Obama's obvious contempt for the Jewish State.


McCain spokesman Michael Goldfarb accused the Times of "intentionally suppressing information that could provide a clearer link between Barack Obama and Rashid Khalidi."

"The election is one week away, and it's unfortunate that the press so obviously favors Barack Obama that this campaign must publicly request that the Los Angeles Times do its job – make information public," Goldfarb said at the time.

During the campaign, the blogosphere was abuzz with accusations alleging the Times was holding the video back because it contains embarrassing moments that would be damaging for Obama.

Andrew C. McCarthy, chairman of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies' Center for Law & Counterterrorism, claimed in an October 2008 piece in National Review Online the Times would have jumped at the chance of making such images public if McCain had been involved.

"Let's try a thought experiment," begins McCarthy. "Say John McCain attended a party at which known racists and terror mongers were in attendance. Say testimonials were given, including a glowing one by McCain for the benefit of the guest of honor ... who happened to be a top apologist for terrorists. Say McCain not only gave a speech but stood by, in tacit approval and solidarity, while other racists and terror mongers gave speeches that reeked of hatred for an American ally and rationalizations of terror attacks.

"Now let's say the Los Angeles Times obtained a videotape of the party.

"Question: Is there any chance – any chance – the Times would not release the tape and publish front-page story after story about the gory details, with the usual accompanying chorus of sanctimony from the oped commentariat? Is there any chance, if the Times was the least bit reluctant about publishing (remember, we're pretending here), that the rest of the mainstream media (y'know, the guys who drove Trent Lott out of his leadership position over a birthday-party toast) would not be screaming for the release of the tape?" McCarthy asked.

The video the Times said it obtained reportedly captures Obama delivering an in-person testimonial for Khalidi, who at the time was departing the University of Chicago for a new teaching position at Columbia University in New York.

The Media of Mass Deception continues to hide the important stories regarding Obama and his connections with corruption. What a shame...

With Obama's obviously abysmal foreign policy weaknesses - especially concerning Iran's nuclear ambitions - it will most likely end up that the apple of God's eye - the State of Israel - will come to the rescue of the world and blow Iran's nukes to smithereens.
