The Obama-Holder Connection: Social Justice, or Just Old Fashioned Anti-Semitism?

In The Enemy Among Us on 03/03/2010 at 08:26

In the summer of 2008, when the nation first learned of Barack Obama’s longtime association with Reverend Jeremiah Wright, the next question was obvious. Does Obama share Wright’s anti-Semitic views?

Largely due to a media that was unabashedly working as the public relations arm of his campaign, then Senator Obama was given a pass on his 20-year connection with Wright, and by association, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Some spoke up; most did not.

Within months of taking office the President snubbed Israel, our only true friend in the Middle East, and embarked on an apology lap to the Islamic world.

If all of that weren’t enough, the appointment of Eric Holder as Attorney General should prove that this President has even greater empathy for radical Islam than previously thought. This week Holder revealed Obama DOJ appointments of nine men who have been instrumental in the defense of Guantanamo terror detainees. Five have directly represented terror, and one defended Osama bin Laden’s driver.

Will the President and General Holder never take the right side in this war on radical Islam? George Bush buckled under pressure during the final years of his presidency in releasing GITMO detainees to return to the field of battle. But Barack Obama, and by extension Eric Holder, seem anxious to provide defense to America’s worst enemies in decades.

From his appointment of Holder, to the recent tapping of Rashad Hussain as envoy to the Muslim world, Obama’s affinity for Islamic causes has become clearer with each step. And now the revelation of nine Justice Department lawyers in GITMO defense cases raises serious questions. Are our children risking their lives in Afghanistan for nothing? Every detainee released from Guantanamo is a potential death sentence for GIs and marines.

American Jews voted for this president in droves, yet he has repeatedly slapped them in the face by supporting an enemy sworn to their destruction. One cannot help but wonder if Jeremiah Wright’s anti-Semitic and pro-Muslim views are at work here.

Barack Obama’s cooling of relations with Israel at a time when the partnership of our two nations could not be more critical is shocking and appalling. America cannot afford to waste one resource in this war – and Israel is a vital partner – because our enemy is cunningly resourceful.

I have great faith in the American people to speak up in the face injustice, and the injustice here is to our own interests. Loving one’s enemies is a virtue, but having blatant disregard for one’s own is shameful.
