Obama Foreign Advisor Wants Talks With, Aid To Hamas

Continuing to look more closely at the mysterious, self-aggrandized Change Agent You Can TrustTM...
We already know that Hillary Clinton, the other front-runner for the US Democratic Presidential Nomination, is a Communistic Liberal Fascist. But...

Who is Barack Obama, really? What do Americans really know about him?

JERUSALEM – While officials here largely maintain a policy against interfering in U.S. election politics, some Israeli security officials quietly expressed "concern" about an adviser to Sen. Barack Obama who has advocated negotiations with Hamas and providing international assistance to the terrorist group.

The officials noted Robert Malley, a principal Obama foreign policy adviser, has penned numerous opinion articles, many of them co-written with a former adviser to the late Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat, petitioning for dialogue with Hamas and blasting Israel for numerous policies he says harm the Palestinian cause.

Malley also previously penned a well-circulated New York Times piece largely blaming Israel for the collapse of the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations at Camp David in 2000 when Arafat turned down a Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza and eastern sections of Jerusalem and instead returned to the Middle East to launch an intifada, or terrorist campaign, against the Jewish state.

Malley's contentions have been strongly refuted by key participants at Camp David, including President Bill Clinton, then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and primary U.S. envoy to the Middle East Dennis Ross, all of whom squarely blamed Arafat's refusal to make peace for the talks' failure.


"We are noting with concern some of Obama's picks as advisers, particularly Robert Malley who has expressed sympathy to Hamas and Hezbollah and offered accounts of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations that don't jibe with the facts," said one security official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Well, now we know something unpleasant about Obama's foreign policy advisor.

If elected President, would Obama pursue anti-Israel/anti-Semite policies? One must ask. After all, Obama's own pastor is known for his praise of the anti-Semitic, racist, Islamosupremacist-imperialist leader of Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan, such praise not being denounced by Obama.

The more I find out the facts surrounding Barack Obama, the more I'm concerned about the prospect of him becoming the President of the United States of America and de-facto Leader of the Free World (although with the company he keeps, one wonders whether he's being advised to keep it free, or change it into something else).
