Jeremiah-Gate Finale

I've got two delicious treats for you on this wonderful Friday full of love. First, the icing on this week's cake comes from WorldNetDaily:

"Sen. Barack Obama's Chicago church reprinted a manifesto by Hamas that defended terrorism as legitimate resistance, refused to recognize the right of Israel to exist and compared the terror group's official charter – which calls for the murder of Jews – to America's Declaration of Independence."

If you read Tuesday, you know how the sane world feels about Hamas' charter, which calls for the destruction of Israel via Islam -- a declaration of genocide, not independence. Sure, lobbing daily rockets across the Atlantic into British towns is tricky, but did we assert that it was our religion doing the dirty work?

According to the article, the Hamas manifesto was published on a page "reserved for Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr." No surprise there. I don't know where to begin with Obama's church, so instead I address the liberal Jews who are currently supporting Obama, working for his campaign, or simply meandering about downtown areas sporting "Change We Can Believe In" shirts:

Wake up. Wake up now. With or without ties to Israel, how can you support a man whose church has tacitly called for the destruction of the Jewish state? Read Tuesday's post if you want the hate from Hamas itself, not republished for a radical church's newsletter. You'd have to go to Chicago for that.


Above: WWJWD?

You'll see in the obtained copies of the newsletter that the article is called "A Fresh View of the Palestinian Struggle," but the original piece was entitled "Hamas' Stand." Obama's church changed the title, because "Hamas" hits your ear about as elegantly as the rockets they fire hit Israeli schools. Not very.

Feel free to read the piece, and then feel free to ask yourself why the church published the words of a murderer. Am I overstating this? I don't think so.

Also from the article:

"[Robert] Malley, an Obama foreign policy adviser, has penned numerous opinion articles, many of them co-written with a former adviser to the late Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat..."

If you need an explanation as to why this is dangerous, you should probably be in the pews of Trinity United Church. Malley has advocated aid for Hamas and blamed the failed Camp David negotiations on Israel, but it seems that not all voices were resonating with Malley's:

"Malley's contentions have been strongly refuted by key participants at Camp David, including President Clinton..."

Which leads us to treat number two:

Have a great weekend, America...wherever you are.
