Obama bashes Israel?

As long as the LA Times refuses to release the videotape of Obama at the Rashid Khalidi banquet, I’m going to accept the following from Doug Ross as absolutely true — and I urge all of you to do so too until that videotape is released.  We’re all certain, aren’t we, given the illustrious guest list at this celebration and as well his habitual choices in friends and advisors, that Obama would never really say something like that, right?  </sarcasm>

I received a tip from a person who has provided useful, accurate and unique data from LA before (e.g., “All six of CNN’s ‘undecided voters’ were Democratic operatives“). Take it for what it’s worth, but I believe this person is on target.

Saw a clip from the tape. Reason we can’t release it is because statements Obama said to rile audience up during toast. He congratulates Khalidi for his work saying “Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine” plus there’s been “genocide against the Palestinian people by Israelis.”

It would be really controversial if it got out. Tha’s why they will not even let a transcript get out.

Yep, I guess that would do it.

    Yeah, I hit the LA Times “reader representative” with a letter today, pointing that one out.

    No reply. Surprise.

    I loved this new ad from a non-campaign group. “Dictators Mock Obama ‘s Ignorance”. It may actually air in battleground states.

    2 points I haven’t yet heard:
    1)To my mind, Obama being at that dinner at all is incriminating. Why honor Khalidi if he didn’t support him?
    2) If Obama has nothing to hide, why doesn’t HE insist that that Times release this tape? After all, if he merely made innocuous remarks at a farewell dinner, why not tell them to release the footage and be done with the controversy once and for all?
    His silence tells me all I need to know.
    Why don’t we urge McCain to call on Obama to have the Times release the tape? Surely if he has nothing to hide he will do this.

    This is the same silence that sees Obama refuse to release his birth certificate. In an American court of law, you’re innocent until proven guilty, but in the Court of public opinion, when you’re running for President, shouldn’t you be required to prove at least a few things about yourself (such as one of the few prerequisites for the presidency)?

    Man, envision this:

    A somewhat liberal Democrat has the videotape of the Khalidi dinner. In viewing it, he (or she) becomes *very* concerned about Obama. ‘This is too much to just keep quiet’. So he contacts a reliable journalist in the LA Times, indicating his deep concern about the tape, and about Obama.

    ‘Just give me the tape, and we’ll investigate it all. We’ll take care of it’, the journalist assures him. (or her).

    Time passes. He contacts the journalist and finds out that the LA Times is going to sit on the tape; the LA Times issues a statement that deliberately downplays the concerns; the LA Times will not support him.

    And he has given up his ONLY copy… to the LA Times. Foolish, foolish trust.

    Jack, it’s hard for me to imagine a situation, when it comes to your blog and mine, that would see you doing something that’s NOT okay. Spread my post around. This is information that deserves to be heard.

    Obama quote from Khalidi dinner leaked!

    “My friend Rashid is a hero among our Palestinian brothers along the West Bank, and with his continued effort, and our continued support, we can guarantee the removal of the Jewish invaders from our promised land! Without a doubt, a united Palestinian front can banish the racist Israeli state back to the four corners of the world and cleanse the holy land of their stain! Then, we will use the example of Palestinian liberation to usher forth a new age in America! An America where heroes like my good friends Bill Ayers, Reverend Dr. Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, and Malik Zulu Shabazz will bring and end to the tyranny of capitalism, democracy, and white christianity! We will take the wealth of the American economic elite, and use it to buy the votes of the American poor! Then, when we have control of the United States House of Representatives, the United States Senate, the United States Supreme Court, and of course, the White House, we will show the American people what real governance is! We will redistribute the wealth! We will bring down the corporations, and eliminate the small busenessmen! We will put them on the path to socialism, and get this nation ready for the next step toward Marxist Communism! We will give them change!”

    OK, maybe not. But he might have said it. I guess we won’t know for sure.

    Don’t forget that every time Barack says the word, “Israel”, Michelle gets a vicious snarl on her face. Caught on video.

    Dang, that is one perpetually angry woman. Even when she’s not visibly angry, she’s grim. That smile of hers never runs very deep. Barack and Michelle were meant for each other.
