The involvement of the uber-left, dangerous agitators and provocateurs like CODE PINK, Bill Ayers, even the AFL-CIO in the destruction of an America allied, no accident. There are no accidents, not with these terrorists.
Obama's goodfriend and sponsor, Bill Ayers has been active in Gaza and Egypt agitating against the Jewish people promoting the destruction of Israel.
What was not as well known as their Weathermen activities was Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn’s virulent anti-Semitism in the 1960s and 1970s – including the hatred for Jews and Israel expressed in his 1973 book Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism – the “Political Statement of the Weather Underground,” which he coauthored with Dohrn.The book’s dedication page lists numerous “victims of imperialism,” including Sirhan Sirhan, who assassinated Robert F. Kennedy in 1968 because of Kennedy’s support for the State of Israel. RFK’s murder is thought to have been the first “Palestinian” terrorist attack in the United States of America
In Prairie Fire itself, Ayers and Dohrn characterize Israel as an “expansionist power, based on Zionist colonialism.” It asserts that “from its inception, Zionism has been an imperial ideology, presented as an alternative to communism,” and claims that “the Zionist state is clearly the aggressor, the source of violence and war in the Mideast, the occupier of stolen lands…It is racist and expansionist – the enemy of the Palestinians, the Arab people, and the Jewish people.”
Ayers and Dohrn end their condemnation of Israel with a ringing peroration: “The U.S. people have been seriously deceived about the Palestinians and Israel. … SELF-DETERMINATION FOR THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE! U.S. OUT OF THE MIDEAST! END AID TO ISRAEL!”[i]

Jack Cashill, Ayers, Obama, and the Destabilization of Egypt
What seems clear from the record is that Ayers and his circle—perhaps Obama himself—are less concerned with the future of Egypt than they are with the future of Israel, a country whose “story of itself” Ayers has denounced as “ elaborate, self-aggrandizing, and thoroughly dishonest.”
From the hard left’s perspective, Israel is the Mini-Me to America’s Dr. Evil. For this crowd, Islam is a little more than a tool with which to destroy both.
In the way of background, Ayers was among the 1400 or so leftists from around the world who descended on Egypt a little more than a year ago with plans to march on Gaza.
The Mubarak government quickly disabused the would-be marchers of their fondness for Muslim governments by denying all but 100 of the international activists their promised trip to Gaza.
Still, the 1300 left behind, including Ayers and his weatherbride Bernardine Dohrn, made enough noise in Cairo to get everyone’s attention.
“Our direct actions and demonstrations seem to be awaking Egypt, a little,” wrote activist-journalist Philip Weiss of the group, “and getting a lot of publicity.”
That much said, it is unlikely that Ayers et al had any real role in stirring the Egyptian pot these last few weeks. Muslims have never much interested him. In his 2001 memoir, Fugitive Days, for instance, Ayers never once mentions the words “Islam” or “Muslim.”
What does interest Ayers, of course, is Israel and its destruction. Although it seems a stretch to argue that the organizers of Egypt’s recent “Day of Rage” took their cues from the Weathermen’s notorious “Days of Rage” forty years prior, the sentiments Ayers has expressed about those days would warm a Jihadist heart.
One passage in Fugitive Days has particular resonance. “The streets became sparkling and treacherous with the jagged remains of our rampage,” writes Ayers of his window-breaking spree through the streets of Chicago.
Then Ayers lovingly describes the scene, in a trope that has to chill the blood of any Jew, as “crystal chaos.” Just thirty years prior, the Nazis had called their sparkling rampage through the streets of Germany as “Kristallnacht” or “Crystal Night” in English. Ayers knew what he was saying.
Then too Ayers and pals dedicated their revolutionary tract Prairie Fire to, among others, Sirhan Sirhan, the proto-jihadist who admittedly killed U.S. Senator Robert Kennedy because of his support for Israel.
In April of 2008, Peter Wallsten of the LA Times wrote a lengthy article titled “Allies of Palestinians see a friend in Obama.” The article pulled some of its information from a video shot at a 2003 farewell dinner for Rashid Khalidi.
Once considered a spokesman for the Palestinian Liberation Organization, Khalidi had spent several years at the University of Chicago before leaving for New York.
At the dinner, reportedly attended by Ayers and Dohrn as well, Obama thanked Rashid and his wife for the many meals they had shared chez Khalidi and for reminding Obama of “my own blind spots and my own biases.”
Obama hoped that “we continue that conversation -- a conversation that is necessary not just around Mona and Rashid's dinner table . . . [but around] this entire world."
Wallsten acknowledged that during this “celebration of Palestinian culture” some of the guests made hostile comments about Israel. One recited a poem accusing the Israeli government of terrorism with the implicit threat that Israel “will never see a day of peace."
Another compared "Zionist settlers on the West Bank" to Osama bin Laden. If worse had been said, or if Obama had applauded these comments, the world beyond the LA Times newsroom would not be allowed to know.
The Times, which endorsed Obama for president, steadfastly refused to share the videotape despite the demand by the McCain camp and others to release it.
“A major news organization is intentionally suppressing information that could provide a clearer link between Barack Obama and Rashid Khalidi,” said McCain spokesman, Michael Goldfarb. Times spokeswoman, Nancy Sullivan, blew Goldfarb off.
