More on Obama’s Anti-Israel Supporters

We all know by now about Obama’s black nativist, America hating, Israel hating pastor. However, Obama has more anti-Israel supporters, who are giving him lots of money.

First off, there’s the notorious, Israel hating, goat fornicator loving George Soros.

As Obama took steps toward the United States Senate he found a very powerful sugar daddy who would help fund his rise: George Soros. The billionaire hedge fund titan began supporting Obama very early — as befits a legendary speculative investor always looking for opportunities. Obama coveted support from George Soros and Soros responded — along with many family members and probably the Soros ring of wealthy donors. Soros even found a loophole that allowed him and assorted family members to exceed regular limits on campaign contributions.

Soros is also a fierce foe of Israel, for years funding groups that have worked against Israel. He is also a man who has flexed his political muscle as a major funder of Democrat candidates and a slew of so-called 527 groups that are active in pushing their agendas (a reliance on international institutions, defeat of Republicans, Bush-bashing, Israel-bashing). He has also openly proclaimed his desire to break the bonds between America and Israel and has written of his desire to erode political support for Israel.

Soros also called for concessions to Hamas — a terror group that has killed many innocent people and that has called for the destruction of Israel. When this came to light, some leading Democrats personally denounced Soros; Obama had a spokesman issue this rather bland statement:

“Mr. Soros is entitled to his opinions,” a campaign spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, said. “But on this issue he and Senator Obama disagree. Sound familiar? It is similar to the response the Soros campaign has given regarding Obama’s close relationship with Pastor Wright.

Remember the uproar when Congressman Ron Paul refused to return a $500 donation from Don Black of Stormfront? Apparently there are far too many stupid white liberals who think blacks are incapable of racism or hatred.

Then there’s Allen Houston, formerly of the Knicks.

Nor did anti-Semitism of another fundraiser seem to ruffle Obama or his campaign. A fundraiser was held at the home of Allan Houston, formerly of the Knicks, and a man who had previously very publicly proclaiming that Jews had Jesus’ “blood on their hands” and were “stubborn”. The American Jewish Congress protested and noted that Obama would not take any money from someone who had expressed the same sort of remarks about African-Americans. The very same spokesman who addressed the Soros controversy blithely dismissed the concerns of the Jews and said the campaign would not return the money or reject any of the contributions made by Houston.

How can any liberal Jew continue to support this man?

Anyway, moving along…there’s the issue of Obama’s foreign policy advisers. In a previous post, I wrote about Robert Malley. But there’s also Zbigniew Bzrezinski, Anthony Lake and Susan Rice.

Lake and Brzezenski both earned their spurs in the Carter Administration. The Carter era led to the fall of the Shah of Iran (a stalwart ally of both America and Israel), which gave birth to the Iranian revolution. We all know how well that has turned out. Jimmy Carter, of course, has led a very public campaign of vilification against Israel-defaming it as an apartheid state (a view that Obama’s Pastor would concur with).

Anthony Lake has been all but retired for the last dozen years-living on a farm in the Berkshires. This makes one wonder what he is bringing to the table, other than his Carter-era pedigree and beliefs. He has been reactivated though-one of his roles seems to be as ambassador to the Arab-American community .

The appointment of Brzezenski elicited much dismay among supporters of Israel since Brzezinski is well known for his aggressive dislike of Israel. . He has been an ardent foe of Israel for over three decades and newspaper files are littered with his screeds against Israel. Brzezinski has publicly defended the Walt-Mearsheimer thesis that the relationship between America and Israel is based not on shared values and common threats but is the product of Jewish pressure. Brzezinski also signed a letter demanding dialogue with Hamas-a group whose charter calls for the destruction of Israel and is filled with threats to Jews around the world.

After Hezbollah launched attacks against Israel in the summer of 2006, murdered Israelis and took hostages, Israel tried to get its citizens back by moving into Lebanon. Warfare resulted. Brzezinski wrote that Israel’s actions amounted to the “killing of hostages” (the hostages being Lebanese caught in the battles). http://www.huffingtonpost.com/steve-clemons/zbig-brzezinski-israel_b_25821.html

Brzezinski’s son, Mark, is also on Obama’s foreign policy team. Evidently the apple does not fall far from the tree. Mark recently co-wrote an op-ed advocating that America forge ties with Iran.

Susan Rice was John Kerry’s chief foreign policy adviser when he ran for President. One of the major steps Kerry suggested for dealing with the Middle East was to appoint James Baker and Jimmy Carter as negotiators. When furor erupted at the prospect of two of the most ardent foes of Israel being suggested to basically ride “roughshod” over Israel, Kerry backtracked and blamed his staff for the idea. His staff was Susan Rice.

Here’s more background on Susan Rice.

Here’s some background on Anthony Lake.

And here’s more on Brezezenski.

  1. You forgot to mention that Brezinsky was also behind the US policy of using Islamists as a global weapon against the Soviets. He personally oversaw the training of the mujahideen against the Soviets. But he did not just train a resistance. He saw to it that the mujahideen fighters were trained to be international criminals. They trained these fighters with use of fraudalent passports, ability to bypass security checks and airport security, ability to sneak into sovereign nations illegally, illegal smuggling of weapons, bombmaking, etc. All these ins and outs were utilized by Ramzi Youssef and his cell, many of whom snuck into the US illegally, who bombed the WTC in 1993. The weapons, funding, and training of Islamists and the US nod-and-wink to these activities even AFTER the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan can in part be attributed to Brezinski and others of his ilk. There are many like him still in Congress even after 9/11.

  2. Brezinski sat on a panel 3 people on each side Brezinski sat with walt and mearshimer

  3. You also forgot to mention that Brzezinski also happened to be the National Security Advisor during the only peace agreement between Israel and any Arab countries (i.e. Egypt and Jodan). Brzezinski has never claimed that Israel and the US do not share values and should not be allies, he merely said that there is no reason to put down discourse over AIPAC and its influence. I am no fan of Walt and Mearsheimer but I really don’t mind when they put together a paper full of holes that has been largely discredited by a large part of the professors of the Harvard and Georgetown Schools of Foreign Policy. Again, discourse on the topic is ok as long as factual evidence is used in context (which is, I believe, the greatest flaw with W&M’s paper on AIPAC).

    As for the comment above by velvel, please take a lesson on Cold War history. Hindsight is often 20/20, but your obvious lack of knowledge on the matter is not helpful to people looking for information on Obama’s advisors.

  5. I was thinking that we jews are smart, I didn’t know that after 7 years of wrong decitions, not only Isreal is not safer nor USA, we lost the respect of the world,in Italy my brother and his friends were attacket only becouse of bush and Isreal political mistakes, and being jew, here we go again listening to some close minded greedy, full of hate idiots who running some media, NO more

  6. Excellent website and article! I am a “righteous gentile” who is deeply concerned about an Obama Presidency… one of the main reasons is his alignment with people who are anti-Israel. My precious Jewish brothers and sisters are God’s chosen people, God made a covenant with Abraham that cannot be broken and Israel belongs to the Jewish people. God will judge the nations as to how we respond to Israel. Whoever blesses Israel, God will bless, and whoever curses Israel, God will curse.

  7. Thank you for the kind words, Karen. And welcome to my blog.

  8. Yes but will Obama still get the support of Democrat registered Jews? I’m guessing he will.

    Hmmm, another site like this.. interesting. If you want my 2 cents, since this is a blog and all, i hate this obama character, not because he’s not a “nice” guy or a “smart” guy, but because he should NOT BE PRESIDENT OF AMERICA!!! He has no experience or history of political accomplishments… it’s amazing that everyone here is just saying that he’s anti-israel… who the hell cares, what does that have to do with America? Part of our terrible foreign policy is that we get involved with world affairs far too much. I wish America would cease to be super power and just let our people live without being hated around the world. Oh, and Karen, what the hell is wrong with you? Chosen People.. you sound like Adolph Hitler. There are no “chosen” people… if you’re good you going to the proverbial heaven, if you’re a scumbag, well… you know.

  10. Chuck, welcome to my blog.

    I agree with you that there are many reasons to dislike Obama, and that Israel shouldn’t be the main reason for Americans. However, the reason I called this blog Jews Against Obama is because I wanted to try and wake up my fellow Jews (most of whom vote Democrat no matter what) to the fact that Obama is bad news.
