How Obama's got Israel's back

How Obama's got Israel's back

Here's yet another example of how President Hussein Obama has Israel's back and is putting a knife in it. Adam Kredo reports that Obama participated in, and ordered members of his administration to participate in, the annual convention of the anti-Israel Arab American Anti-Discrimination Committee, a group that most certainly does not promote peace.
The ADC bills itself as a civil rights organization that is focused on protecting Arab Americans from discrimination, yet it has often come under scrutiny for promoting views that are highly critical of Israel.

In addition to filming remarks, Obama also directed two of his top advisers to speak at the confab: Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes and Ari Matusiak, executive director of the White House Business Council.

The administration’s endorsement of a conference that featured a Palestinian advocate who has labeled Israel an “apartheid state” and presented an award to the author of an essay titled “Zionism is a Form of Racism” has raised eyebrows among advocates of the Jewish state. They worry that in its race to secure votes in a tough election, the administration is cozying up with those who aim to subvert the U.S.-Israel alliance.

“It just makes me very suspicious of the president’s past statements and platitudes when speaking before Jewish and pro-Israel audiences,” one prominent Jewish official said when informed of the administration’s participation in the ADC event. “For a lot of Jewish opinion leaders, we’re left to wonder, ‘Is this an administration that is genuine in its statements regarding Israel or is this an administration that will say anything and do anything to get reelection—including speaking out of both sides of their mouths?’”

Also in attendance was the Rev. Brenda Girton-Mitchell, director of the White House-backed Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships at the U.S. Department of Education, as well as NAACP President Ben Jealous.
Let's go to the videotape.
