Given Barack Hussein Obama’s many associations with domestic and Arab terrorists, it should come as no surprise that Rabbis For Obama is really a group of Hamas and ISM apologists.
When Rabbis for Obama was announced with great fanfare it was meant to reassure worried Jewish voters. The 300 Rabbis who signed on to the letter which stated that Barack Obama had “longstanding, stalwart support for Israel” and claimed that “Senator Obama is in the best position to restore faith in America as a leader in the fight against serious threats to Israel.”
But when you mix Obama and clergy together, the one thing you can count on is that they’ll be left wing radicals who are anti-American and anti-Israel… and the Rabbis for Obama signers don’t disappoint.
In fact a better name for “Rabbis for Obama” would be “Rabbis for Hamas”. Does that sound like I’m exagerating, not at all. Because there is a surprising amount of overlap between the Rabbis who joined up with Rabbis for Obama and the Rabbis who signed the infamous Brit Tzedek V’Shalom letter urging Bush to keep an open mind on Hamas for the purposes of “constructive engagement” with the new Hamas government.
How much overlap? Five of the Vice Chairs of Rabbis for Obama were among the Hamas Rabbis, as well as 133 of the signatories to the Rabbis for Obama letter. That’s nearly half the membership of Rabbis for Obama who signed on to a letter calling for Bush to keep an open door for dealings with Hamas. (see below for a full list)
Since then Brit Tzedek V’Shalom has authored a second letter to whoever wins the Presidential election that repeatedly condemns Israel for fighting terrorism, e.g. (“In 2001, then-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon flatly rejected President Bush’s demands that a massive Israeli military operation on the West Bank be suspended “as quickly as possible”), takes the Palestinian Arab side on the negotiations (“The Palestinians rejected Olmert’s offer as soon as it was made public as it did not adequately address most of the issues that are most important to the Palestinians”) and once again calls for recognizing and dealing with Hamas;
This time around three more of the Vice Chairs of Rabbis for Obama as well as many other Rabbis for Obama members signed on to the second Brit Tzedek V’Shalom pro-Hamas letter.
The original letter by the Hamas Rabbis was a project of Brit Tzedek V’Shalom aka Jewish Alliance for Justice and Peace, an extremist left wing group, which has condemned Israeli action against Hamas, defended the ISM terrorist solidarity group and coordinated pro-terrorist propaganda with figures involved in terrorism. And Brit Tzedek V’Shalom is funded by the same far left daddies too.
