I listened to Obama's snake oil speech at AIPAC. He, yet again, invoked that old canard and his favorite oxymoron "aggressive diplomacy". Is that not the failed policy we have been pursuing for years while Iran developed their nuclear weapons . His staunch support of Israel flies in the face of the foreign policy advisers he has hired and his significant anti-semitic background.
Has he fired the notoriously anti-Israel McPeak? By their fruits we shall know him, and so we know him.
UPDATE: The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) issued the following statement today:
"Today before the pro-Israel community at AIPAC, Senator Obama tried to run from his Iran policy. In September 2007, a bipartisan effort in the Senate passed the Kyl-Lieberman resolution designating the Iranian Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization. At the time, Obama vehemently opposed this effort and used the opportunity as a political diversion to attack Hillary Clinton's campaign. Now that he has the Democratic nomination, Obama is attempting to rewrite his history and pretend his opposition to Kyl-Lieberman never happened. But in truth, when given the opportunity to demonstrate principled leadership and judgment, Obama instead worked against the bipartisan effort to increase the economic pressure on the Iranian Revolutionary Guard."
UPDATE: From the blog Mujahadeen Ryder:
Now as a young Muslim American, Obama is clearly the person to vote for. John McCain is very clear on his position on Islam, his position on Iraq and Afghanistan. You know Obama is the right choice when the Zionist Israeli Jews don’t support him. In fact Clinton is the favorite amongst the Jews in America, but yet even with them,
The Future for young Muslim Americans?
Only God knows what will happen, but we have the choices in our hands. We can make a difference starting off locally and bringing about changes for the better. Whether its within the Islamic centers or working within your local government. [...]
May Allah (swt) guide us all, protect us all and protect the innocent Muslims suffering around the world.
May Allah (swt) give the Muslim American ummah the power, the wisdom, the knowledge and the iman to keep this deen strong and implement justice that will spread throughout the world. Ameen!
