Is Obama the candidate of the Arab anti-Israel lobby? http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/s_551642.html Barack Obama's men "...campaign advisers. Nearly 100 are out campaigning for him and planning their niches in a new administration. A few are much more clandestine and tell us a great deal more about Obama than he realizes.It is said that the godfather of the Obama campaign is James George Abourezk, 76, a former Democrat congressman and senator of South Dakota and the first Arab-American to serve in the U.S. Senate...Daschle is vital to Obama, not only as a messenger for Abourezk but for endorsing Obama a year ago. Now, with Abourezk's permission, he is putting together the transition teams that hope to be planning the Obama policies. Abourezk's denial of above claim: http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/tribunereview/news/mostread/s_552792.html Video of Abourezk on Hizballah TV http://littlegreenfootballs.com/weblog/?entry=26956_Video-_Former_US_Senator_on_Hizballah_TV&only Pete Rouse is chief of staff for Obama. Rouse had worked since 1985 for Daschle, whom he met as a fellow legislative assistant for Abourezk. Q: Why did Ralph Nader drop Abourezk's name in an answer to a question by Tim Russert? http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/23319215/page/2/ "He's not been a Senator Wellstone or Senator Abourezk or Senator Metzenbaum by any means." A sample of Brit Tzedek v'Shalom's views: "The occupation is the greatest catastrophe to befall the Jewish people in the aftermath of the Holocaust.The settlers and the compliant Israeli governments that have supported them have succeeded in overturning two thousand years of a tradition of justice for the ‘other' and in transforming the Jewish people into an oppressive occupier."
