Dhimmi Carter & His Kinfolk Cotton to Obama

April 4, 2008

The Dhimmi Carter clan is going whole hog over Obama.

‘Magine that…why am I not surprised? Carter never did have a lick of sense. And there is no fighting genetics…follow a stupid kid home and you are bound to find a stupid parent.

Obama May Get Carter’s Support

This Day Online
Former President of the United States, Jimmy Carter has hinted that he might cast his vote for Senator Barack Obama to aid his emergence as the candidate for the Democrats in America’s bid to elect a new President.
Carter, who is a Super Delegate from Georgia State, gave this hint at a media interaction after the Carter Center Awards for Guinea Worm Eradication in Abuja yesterday.
Carter, who was accompanied by his wife Rosalynn, did not profess a direct support for Obama but rather choose to make a veiled statement.
“We are very interested in the primaries. Don’t forget that Obama won in my state of Georgia. My town which is home to 625 people is for Obama, my children and their spouses are pro- Obama.
My grandchildren are also pro- Obama. As a Super Delegate, I would not disclose who I am rooting for but I leave you to make that guess,” he said.

Makes perfect sense being as Obama and Carter are two peas in a pod.

US-Arab Activist Says Obama is Hiding Anti-Israel Stance to Get Elected – Yid With Lid

2008/03/24

Ali Abunimah is a Pro Arab Journalist and founder of the Electronic Intifada. He will tell you that Senator Obama is full of crap when he says that he is pro-Israel

If disappointing, given his historically close relations to Palestinian-Americans, Obama’s about-face is not surprising. He is merely doing what he thinks is necessary to get elected

He says that Obama has long been a friend of the Palestinian community, but he knows where the money is. He has changed his position because those in the Pro-Israel camp (American Jews?) have the money to get him elected. Below is a portion of what he has written for Electronic Intifada on the subject:

How Barack Obama learned to love Israel

…….Over the years since I first saw Obama speak I met him about half a dozen times, often at Palestinian and Arab-American community events in Chicago including a May 1998 community fundraiser at which Edward Said was the keynote speaker. In 2000, when Obama unsuccessfully ran for Congress I heard him speak at a campaign fundraiser hosted by a University of Chicago professor. On that occasion and others Obama was forthright in his criticism of US policy and his call for an even-handed approach to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

The last time I spoke to Obama was in the winter of 2004 at a gathering in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood. He was in the midst of a primary campaign to secure the Democratic nomination for the United States Senate seat he now occupies. But at that time polls showed him trailing.

As he came in from the cold and took off his coat, I went up to greet him. He responded warmly, and volunteered, “Hey, I’m sorry I haven’t said more about Palestine right now, but we are in a tough primary race. I’m hoping when things calm down I can be more up front.” He referred to my activism, including columns I was contributing to the The Chicago Tribune critical of Israeli and US policy, “Keep up the good work!”

But Obama’s gradual shift into the AIPAC camp had begun as early as 2002 as he planned his move from small time Illinois politics to the national scene. In 2003, Forward reported on how he had “been courting the pro-Israel constituency.” He co-sponsored an amendment to the Illinois Pension Code allowing the state of Illinois to lend money to the Israeli government. Among his early backers was Penny Pritzker — now his national campaign finance chair — scion of the liberal but staunchly Zionist family that owns the Hyatt hotel chain. (The Hyatt Regency hotel on Mount Scopus was built on land forcibly expropriated from Palestinian owners after Israel occupied East Jerusalem in 1967). He has also appointed several prominent pro-Israel advisors.

Obama has also been close to some prominent Arab Americans, and has received their best advice. His decisive trajectory reinforces a lesson that politically weak constituencies have learned many times: access to people with power alone does not translate into influence over policy. Money and votes, but especially money, channelled through sophisticated and coordinated networks that can “bundle” small donations into million dollar chunks are what buy influence on policy. Currently, advocates of Palestinian rights are very far from having such networks at their disposal. Unless they go out and do the hard work to build them, or to support meaningful campaign finance reform, whispering in the ears of politicians will have little impact. (For what it’s worth, I did my part. I recently met with Obama’s legislative aide, and wrote to Obama urging a more balanced policy towards Palestine.)

If disappointing, given his historically close relations to Palestinian-Americans, Obama’s about-face is not surprising. He is merely doing what he thinks is necessary to get elected and he will continue doing it as long as it keeps him in power. Palestinian-Americans are in the same position as civil libertarians who watched with dismay as Obama voted to reauthorize the USA Patriot Act, or immigrant rights advocates who were horrified as he voted in favor of a Republican bill to authorize the construction of a 700-mile fence on the border with Mexico.

Only if enough people know what Obama and his competitors stand for, and organize to compel them to pay attention to their concerns can there be any hope of altering the disastrous course of US policy in the Middle East. It is at best a very long-term project that cannot substitute for support for the growing campaign of boycott, divestment and sanctions needed to hold Israel accountable for its escalating violence and solidifying apartheid.

Obama Blog Compares “Jewish Lobby” to Hitler and Stalin

Tony Wicher’s “My Favorite Antisemite” at the Official Website of Barack Obama 2008 Presidential Campaign attacks the Zionist Thought Police and then quotes Desmond Tutu, who suggests that the “powerful Jewish Lobby” will fall like Hitler, Mussolini, Idi Amin, and other dictators.

    One good trackback deserves another. Thanks and thanks for the visit.

    Excellent post and round-up on Obama. The more I learn about this guy, the farther away from him I want to be. Looks like the air is starting to leak from his balloon a little, now, too. I hope it turns into a rush of wind.

    Sure wish we had Ron Paul there in place of McCain, it would be a landslide.

    Thanks Rastaman. Much obliged!

    If I were to be honest. The thought of Obama becoming president scares the living hell out of me.
