Obama belonged to a church for 20 years where his Minister Wright spoke against Israel and was friends with Louis Farrakhan, a known anti-Semite. He did nothing that we know of to talk to his minister and change his thinking. He did nothing to improve Jewish-African American relations in those 20 years.
Obama picked as his advisors several anti-Israel thinking people. They are Zbigniew Brzezinksi, Robert Malley, Samantha Power and General McPeak. The general happens to live in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Now that he is the presidential pick for the Democrats, I hear he has dropped Brzezinksi. In fact, I read that he has now dropped all of them.
Obama attended most all Palestinian gatherings, and though he is a known Christian, had many occasions to be with people who supported the Palestinians in their terror against Israel.
Now Obama has spoken to AIPAC gloriously about supporting Israel, only to reneg an hour later about keeping Jerusalem in Israel's hands since the Arabs have made it known that they want Jerusalem as their capitol. After such a strong speech, why did he cave in so quickly? Hadn't he studied the problem previously? After speaking with his friends, didn't he know anything about the history and feelings on both sides? What kind of determination does this show? I would love it if Obama were pro-Israel and felt he had good reasons for feeling that way. I hate it if he is just saying it to gain votes from our 1% of the nation.
In order to gain the nomination, I see that he has cast his friends aside who cause eyebrows to be raised. I'm glad that he did this, but am concerned about why it took him so long to do so and what he has done and would do to keep his position. I think he has closed the barn door after the cows got out.
