Hussein Obama helped fund organization that rejects 'racist' Israel's existence
This is no inexperienced neophyte. He knows exactly what he is doing. Hussein Obama was decidedly Pro "palestinian" before he entered the race and only began making poltically expedient speeches towards about Israel after got serious about winning the White House
Obama worked with terrorist . Senator helped fund organization that rejects 'racist' Israel's existence.
JERUSALEM – The board of a nonprofit organization on which Sen. Barack Obama served as a paid director alongside a confessed domestic
terrorist granted funding to a controversial Arab group that mourns the
establishment of Israel as a "catastrophe" and supports intense immigration reform, including providing drivers licenses and
education to illegal aliens.
The co-founder of the Arab group in question, Columbia University professor
Rashid Khalidi, also has held a fundraiser for Obama. Khalidi is a harsh critic
of Israel, has made statements supportive of Palestinian terror and reportedly
has worked on behalf of the Palestine Liberation Organization while it was
involved in anti-Western terrorism and was labeled by the State Department as a
In 2001, the Woods Fund, a Chicago-based nonprofit that describes itself as
a group helping the disadvantaged, provided a $40,000 grant to the Arab American
Action Network, or AAAN, for which Khalidi's wife, Mona, serves as president.
The Fund provided a second grant to the AAAN for $35,000 in 2002.
Obama was a director of the Woods Fund board from 1999 to Dec.
11, 2002, according to the Fund's website. According to tax filings, Obama
received compensation of $6,000 per year for his service in 1999 and 2001.
Obama served on the Wood's Fund board alongside William C. Ayers, a
member of the Weathermen terrorist group which sought to overthrow of the U.S.
government and took responsibility for bombing the U.S. Capitol in
Ayers, who still serves on the Woods Fund board, contributed $200 to
Obama's senatorial campaign fund and has served on panels with Obama at numerous
public speaking engagements. Ayers admitted to involvement in the bombings of
U.S. governmental buildings in the 1970s. He is a professor at the
University of Illinois at Chicago.
The $40,000 grant from Obama's Woods Fund to the AAAN constituted about a
fifth of the Arab group's reported grants for 2001, according to tax filings
obtained by WND. The $35,000 Woods Fund grant in 2002 also constituted
about one-fifth of AAAN's reported grants for that year.
The AAAN, headquartered in the heart of Chicago's Palestinian immigrant community, describes itself as working to "empower
Chicago-area Arab immigrants and Arab Americans through the combined strategies
of community organizing, advocacy, education and social services, leadership
development, and forging productive relationships with other communities."
It reportedly has worked on projects with the Illinois Coalition for
Immigrant and Refugee Rights, which supports open boarders and education for
illegal aliens. The AAAN in 2005 sent a letter to New Mexico Gov. Bill
Richardson in which it called a billboard opposing a North Carolina-New Mexico
joint initiative to deny driver's licenses to illegal aliens a "bigoted attack
on Arabs and Muslims." Speakers at AAAN dinners and events routinely have taken
an anti-Israel line.
The group co-sponsored a Palestinian art exhibit, titled, "The Subject of
Palestine," that featured works related to what some Palestinians call the
"Nakba" or "catastrophe" of Israel's founding in 1948.
According to the widely discredited Nakba narrative, Jews in 1948 forcibly
expelled hundreds of thousands - some Palestinians claim over one million -
Arabs from their homes and then took over the territory.
So, Obama works with terrorists and associates with people who think Israel is a catastrophe.
I find it really hard to like Obama. I'm trying, but I find that I am simply not succeeding.
