Arab Obama and his Arab Friends [incl. Rashid Khalidi]
by Linda Cowan
The revelation that Barak Obama is 43.75% Arab goes a long way to explain his political and business connections to Antoin 'Tony' Rezko, Nadhmi Auchi, Joseph Aramanda, Louis Farrahkan, and other characters he relies on as contacts, advisors, campaign organizers and political contributors. Obama needed the black vote, so he wrote a book and created a fictional African-American profile for himself. His real dealings are with his true heritage, anti-Israel Arabs.
It explains Obama's close relationship with pro-Palestinian Rashid Khalidi. Obama was a director of the Woods Fund, a Chicago-based nonprofit that describes itself as a group helping the disadvantaged, providing a $40,000 grant to the Arab American Action Network, or AAAN, for which Khalidi's wife, Mona, serves as president. AAAN's cofounder, Rashid Khalidi, was a director of the official PLO press agency WAFA in Beirut from 1976 to 1982, while AAAN President Mona Khalidi, was reportedly WAFA's English translator. During that time, the PLO committed scores of anti-Western attacks and was labeled by the U.S. as a terror group. Presently, the AAAN is located in the Palestinian neighborhood in Chicago and serves as the mouthpiece against Israel. It is a pro-Palestinian Terror Network. The Woods Fund is the same board that William Ayers served alongside Obama, which figures! The picture is getting clearer and clearer!
We are getting a better idea of just who Barak Obama really is. His statement that he would personally talk to rogue nations and terrorist sponsors can be linked with the philosophy provided by his former advisor, Syrian, Robert Malley, who advocates negotiations with Hamas and has blasted Israel for numerous policies he says harms the Palestinian cause. Obama's relations with Malley were severed after the press reported that Malley had held talks with Hamas during Obama's campaigning. Malley has been involved in anti-Israel activism and propaganda for years so it is impossible this was "news" to Obama. Obama "supposedly" severed ties with Malley because he became a liability to Obama's campaign. But, how would anyone know if his ties were really severed or not? We have become numb to Obama's lies.
His Arab heritage also explains Obama's 18 year relationship with Syrian developer and political fundraiser Antoin 'Tony' Rezko and Illinois businessman Joseph Aramandaâ"both of whom were named in a Federal investigation of bribery of Illinois state officials. Rezko was indicted and found guilty by a federal grand jury and Aramanda was named as an un-indicted co-conspirator.
Obama's stance against the Iraq war has more to do with wanting Rezko's continued ability to bilk the Iraqi Government than it did with Obama's convictions against the war. His stance was purely in Rezko's interest to extend his Iraqi bribing operations and Obama shared in these operations as an Illinois Senator by voting in funding for projects that were in favor of Rezko. Remember, in Chicago, it is tit for tat. Just think how big the tit for tat would be as President of the United States!
Enter Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi billionaire, who has a conviction for corruption in France. In 2004, Mr. Auchi met Rezko, Illinois Governor Blagojevich and State Senator Barack Obama, who had recently won the Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate seat.
The Times of London reported uncovering, "state documents in Illinois recording that Fintrade Services, Auchi's Panamanian company, lent money to an Obama fundraiser in May 2005. Fintrade's directors include Ibtisam Auchi, Mr. Auchi's wife." Mr. Auchi, registered the 3.5 million dollar loan to Mr. Obama's bagman, Antoin 'Tony' Rezko, on May, 23, 2005. Three weeks later, Mr. Obama bought a house on the city's South Side while Mr Rezko's wife bought the garden plot next door from the same seller on the same day. Mr. Auchi was denied entrance into the United States in 2005. Does it make you wonder what Mr. Auchi wanted for his 3.5 Million Dollars? A U.S. Visa, perhaps?
If Barak Hussein Obama can accumulate and court wealthy, anti-Israel Arab friends like these in his short political career, just think of the possibilities he will have to amass world crooks and terrorists together in our White House. Obama is promoting change. Mr. Obama, I think the proper course of action would be that you not drag our country through an inevitable, prolonged Congressional Investigation into your Arab-Gate! And, the best "change" would be that you take your anti-American wife and leave the United States and do not come back! And, take your anti-Israel Arab friends with you!Note: Articles listed under "Middle East studies in the News" provide information on current developments concerning Middle East studies on North American campuses.
