Obama’s Ties to Funding Terrorists

More revelations to refute Obama as sweet, unknowing,  ideologue. Considering his history of supporting Arab imperialism and Islamic jihad against Israel, I believe there is a good deal more to this story. He is further tied to Rashid Khalidi, a
known terrorist sympathizer.

For those of you unfamiliar with Rhashid Khalidi. Go here.

  • Professor of Middle East Studies at Columbia University
  • Former PLO operative
  • Has justified as legitimate Palestinian “resistance” that results in death of armed Israelis
  • Rejects the possibility of a two-state solution for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

Khalidi has used his position at Columbia to further inculcate young minds with his anti-Israel, anti-Jewish  historically inaccurate narrative. Remember when Khalidi  said that killing Israeli soldiers is justified during the peace process?

It’s hard to forget what Obama said to one "Palestinian" blogger when running for Senator, ""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.’

Consider his ties to indicted Rezko, Kenyan Islamist ally Odinga, Iraqi Auchi,  the Black Panther Party, the seditious La RazaFarrakhan, and Barack’s  spiritual mentor, hate Pastor Wright, his presence on FARC’s hardrive ….and then this.


A top official
at the Pentagon during former-President George H. W. Bush’s Administration and a
former CIA intelligence officer maintain that Barack Obama and former Weather
Underground honcho William Ayers funneled money to Professor Rashid Khalidi, a
known terrorist sympathizer.

Khalidi serves
on the faculty of Columbia University in New York and is best known as the
professor who invited Iranian President Ahmedineja
d to visit Columbia University
after he finished his speech at the United Nations. According to confidential
sources, Khalidi has direct ties to the Palestinian Liberation Organization
(PLO), a group on the US State Department’s list of known terrorist groups.

"One source
for this information was once a top military figure in the 1990s. He doesn’t
take making allegations lightly. If he says something happened, believe me, it
said syndicated radio talk show
host Laurie Roth

source is a former agent for the Central Intelligence Agency, who is an expert
in counterterrorism,
" said Roth, who broke the story on her show Friday night.

"I certainly
don’t want to demonize someone because they are a woman, black or liberal
running for President. I love the idea that in our culture, a black and woman
can now run. However, it does matter to me with any candidate, their consistency
with good judgment, their voting record, their association with people with
questionable backgrounds and commitment to our country," she said during her
show. To listen to Laurie Roth’s 3-21-08 show click


Another major
fundraiser for Obama is William Ayers, who also sat on the board of the Woods
Fund with Obama and is a professor at the University of Chicago.

Bill Ayers,
along with his wife Bernadine Dohrn, was an active member of the Weather
Underground, a radical left-wing group that advocated violence against the
United State. Both Ayers and Dohrn went "underground" in 1970 after others in
the group accidentally detonated a bomb in a Greenwich Village (New York City)
townhouse. The blast killed three of the group’s members including Ayers’
girlfriend at the time.

While Ayers
and Dohrn were hiding from law enforcement, the Weather Underground participated
in the bombings of the US Capital, the Pentagon and a State Department building.
In 1981 Ayers and Dohrn turned themselves in to federal authorities, but all
charges were dropped as a result of alleged "government legal misconduct." In
his 2001 memoir, Ayers wrote, "I don’t regret setting the bombs. I feel we
didn’t do enough."

Ayers and
Dohrn are known to have held at least one fundraiser for Barack Obama
in their
Chicago home.

During Obama’s
last year on the board of The Woods Fund (2002), he participated in awarding
grants, including a $70,000 grant to the Arab American Action Network, a
Chicago-based group founded by Rashid and Mona Khalidi.

In another
suspected quid pro quo arrangement similar to those with Ayers and Rezko,
Khalidi also held a fundraising event in his home for Barack Obama.

In the Middle
East, Rashid Khalidi was known as a man to be reckoned with. From 1972 through
1983, Khalidi was the director in Beirut of the official Palestinian press
agency, FAFA.
His wife worked there as well.

According to
sources, when the Khalidi’s left Chicago for Columbia University in New York,
Rashid was honored with the Edward Said Chair in Arab Studies at that Ivy League
university. Their goodbye party in Chicago included testimonials from Bill Ayers
and Barack Obama.

"What other
fund raising connections does Obama have? How many times can you look the other
way in church and with fund raising situations with more than questionable
asked Ms. Roth.

"We all make
mistakes in judgment with people and their backgrounds sometimes, but usually we
learn and pick better friends and associates. How come Obama seems to have
continued hanging around more than questionable characters with anti American
backgrounds and some with criminal behaviors? Now one is being indicted, Tony
Rezco, who raised a ton of money for Obama," she said.

"As President,
how much would he look the other way when dealing with national security and
dangers to our country? How much would he listen passively to terrorist leaders
then lecture us on our ugly American status? This kind of change is not what our
country needs!" added the popular talk show host, whose show is syndicated by USA Radio

In a related
story, during an interview on Thursday morning (March 20) with Black Panther
leader Malik Zulu Shabazz, Fox News Channel viewers learned that Shabazz’ group
endorsed and supported Senator Barack Obama for President of the United States.
Even on Fox — an organization wrongly accused of being "conservative" — the
interviewers were careful in their questioning of Shabazz, a recognized racist
and anti-American radical.

There is more. Go.

This photo first ran at Atlas over a year ago, March 7., 2007.  Let’s hope more folks pick up the story this time.

UPDATE: Arab-American Activist Says Obama Hiding Anti-Israel Stance Israel National News has picked up on the story I ran well over a year ago.
