Obama has already taken his first in a series of bad steps towards Israel.

In earlier posts I highlighted Obama’s statements in Jerusalem Post interviews that clearly showed that he doesn’t respect Israel or our right to be in our land (and how he justified Arab violence against Israel), and within his first few hours of officially being in office he backed up his words with actions.

One of his first actions was to appoint George J. Mitchell as his envoy to the Middle East (his first phone call was to former PA President Mahmoud Abbas, who has since been legally replaced by Hamas).

If you recall, Mitchell in the past (under Clinton) called for an end/freeze to all settlement activity – including natural growth. Natural growth being defined as making settler babies.

Well, this settler is certainly going to be defying Obama and Mitchell on that one.

My message to Obama and Mitchell is this.

The Land of Israel belongs to the Jews, and will belong to the Jews, and we will prevail. And this Settler plans to personally double or triple the size of his settlement.

Back in the Clinton/Albright/Christopher days I was frequently overheard muttering that, "Whenever those goyim call for a 'time-out on Jewish settlement activity', I wish Israel's leaders would have the beitzim to say, 'What, TWO THOUSAND YEARS wasn't enough of a "time-out" to satisfy you people?!'"

these are excerpts taken from the timeline (life) of barack (barry) obama
i have clipped out things that pertain to israel only.

if you have a few hours to kill, you can read the whole thing here:

Publicly, Obama denies he ever was a Muslim and claims he is a devout Christian.
(He also alleges he was never in church when his pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright,
was spewing anti-white and anti-American rhetoric in his sermons.) Many, if not most,
of the world’s Muslims feel that “Obama may not want to be counted as a Muslim but Muslims are eager to count him
as one of their own.” One Obama problem may be that if he is seen by radical Islamists
as someone who denounced the Muslim religion to become a Christian, his background can be exploited to
“argue that an apostate is leading the war on terror…” which can then help terrorists “…galvanize (additional)
sympathizers into action.” [252]

While Obama serves on the board of the Woods Fund, it approves (in 2001) a $40,000 grant to the
“Arab American Action Network” (AAAN); a second grant, for $35,000, is approved in 2002.
President of the AAAN is Mona Khalidi, wife of Rashid Khalidi, a professor Obama met while at Columbia University.
Khalidi, a former spokesman for Yassir Arafat, anti-Semite, strong critic of Israel, and supporter of Palestinian terrorism
and the PLO, later holds fundraisers for candidate Obama. AAAN calls the founding of Israel a “catastrophe,”
supports liberal immigration reform in the United States, and encourages giving drivers licenses to illegal aliens.

Serving on the board of the AAAN is Ali Abunimah, a Palestinian-American, anti-Semite,
co-founder of “Electronic Intifada,” and long-time friend of Obama. Abunimah refers to Jews as malicious liars,
and even suggests they lied about the Holocaust, writing, “if Zionists could lie about their present and ongoing torment
of my (Palestinian) people, usurpation of my homeland and arrogation of my rights, and they do it rather obscenely,
couldn't they likewise lie, equally obscenely, about the holocaust, an event that took place over half a century ago?"

In 2001, Obama introduces Senate Bill 750, the “Halal Food Act,” which requires the Department of Agriculture
to conduct inspections to insure that all food labeled Halal is prepared according to Islamic law. [348]

In 2003, Obama attends a dinner held in honor of Rashid Khalidi, a former PLO operative, harsh critic of Israel,
and advocate of Palestinian rights. Obama, who has consistently denied a close relationship with Khalidi
(the Obamas have dined more than once at the home of Khalidi and his wife, Mona, and used them as occasional baby-sitters),
praises Khalidi during the decidedly anti-Semitic event. William Ayers attends the party,
and both Ayers and Obama sign Khalidi’s “guest book.” The event is a going away party for Khalidi,
who is leaving Chicago and moving to New York. The Los Angeles Time has a videotape of the event,
but refuses to release it.” The dinner is sponsored by the Arab American Action Network,
to which Obama had funneled cash while serving on the board of the Woods Fund.
One speaker remarks that if Palestinians cannot secure a return of their land,
Israel “will never see a day of peace.”

The Los Angeles Times has a videotape of the Khalidi dinner, but refuses to make it public;
it is assumed the tape’s contains are damaging to candidate Obama, likely because the event
included anti-Semitic sentiments. Appearing as entertainment at the Khalidi dinner was a children’s dance group,
the “Sanabel AlQuds Dabka” troupe. The Milwaukee-based Muslim children’s dance group typically performs the “debka,”
a Middle-Eastern dance. That dance group’s performance has been known to include “simulated beheadings” with fake swords,
and stomping on American, Israeli, and British flags.

It has also been alleged that, in his speech at the Khalidi dinner, Obama states that
“Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine,” and there has been “genocide against the Palestinian people by
(the) Israelis.”

Obama visits Kenya in 2006, and gives support to Raila Odinga,
a Muslim socialist candidate for President who has ties to both al Qaeda and Libya’s Muammar Qaddafi and
was educated in communist East Germany, and who hopes to get Sharia Muslim law established. Odinga is a cousin of Obama;
Odinga’s mother is the sister of Obama’s father.

In support of Odinga, Obama raises approximately $950,000. The cash for Odinga comes from private meetings
in 2006 arranged for Odinga by Mark Lippert, a foreign policy advisor on Obama’s staff.
Odinga visits Obama during three separate trips to Washington in 2004, 2005, and 2006.
Odinga promises his supporters in Kenya that he will “rewrite the Constitution of Kenya
to recognize Shariah as the only true law sanctioned by the Holy Quran for Muslim declared religion.”

Note the following pledges of candidate Odinga, who received support from Obama: Re-write the Constitution of
Kenya to recognize Muslim Sharia law for Muslim regions; facilitate the establishment of a Sharia court
in every Kenyan divisional headquarters; order every primary school to conduct daily Madrassa classes;
impose a total ban on open-air Christian gospel crusades; outlaw gospel programs on KBC;
impose a total ban on the consumption of alcoholic beverages;
and impose an immediate ban on women’s public dressing styles that are considered immoral
and offensive to the Muslim faith.

On January 24, the “Obama Exploratory Committee” releases this statement,
“To be clear, Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised a Muslim,
and is a committed Christian who attends the (Trinity) United Church of Christ in Chicago.”

On March 14, that statement is clarified, as follows: "Obama was never a practicing Muslim."
Obama’s web site eventually includes this statement: "Obama Has Never Been A Muslim."

New York Times reporter Nicholas Kristof interviews Obama and writes,
“Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent.
In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated... Mr. Obama described the Muslim call to prayer as
‘one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.’” The interview has since been deleted from the New York Times web pages.
(Interestingly, although Obama says he was never a Muslim and never practiced the religion,
he is able to recite from memory something he learned in a school in Indonesia more than 30 years earlier.)

In 2007, Obama tells the Des Moines Register that “…nobody’s suffering more than the Palestinian people.”

On April 30, 2007, in an interview with the New York Times, Obama’s half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, says,
“My whole family was Muslim, and most of the people I knew were Muslim.”

Obama tells friend Ali Abunimah, a Palestinian rights activist in Chicago, that he was sorry he wasn’t talking more
about the Palestinian cause, but his primary campaign had “constrained” what he could say. Abunimah tells radio talk show
“Democracy Now!” he knew Obama for many years and “when he used to attend events in the Palestinian community
in Chicago all the time.” Abunimah responds to Obama’s sudden about-face and soft support of Israel during the campaign
by remarking, "He is merely doing what he thinks is necessary to get elected and he will continue doing it
as long as it keeps him in power."

Obama ousts his campaign’s Muslim outreach director, Chicago lawyer Mazen Asbahi, when questions about his ties to
a radical Muslim imam and the Muslim Brotherhood surface, along with links to the Islamic Society of North America
(an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Hamas-terrorist-funding case). Asbahi was a board member
of the Allied Asset Advisor Fund (associated with the North American Islamic Trust), with Jamal Said
(imam of a radical Chicago area mosque who raised money for Hamas and families of its suicide bombers).
Despite losing his official position with the campaign, Asbahi continues to work for Obama,
participating in conference calls.

Obama avoids casting a Senate vote on a November, 2007 resolution that declares the Iranian Revolutionary Guard,
an elite part of the Iranian military, a terrorist organization.

In June, Obama delivers a speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee,
in which he states that if he is elected president, "Jerusalem would remain the capital of Israel
and it must remain undivided." Immediately following the speech, Obama reverses himself during a CNN appearance,
explaining he only meant that Jerusalem shouldn't be divided with any physical partition.

Obama tells Jeffrey Goldberg of “The Atlantic” that Israel is a “constant sore” that “infects all of our foreign policy”
During the July trip, Obama privately remarks that it would be “crazy” for Israel to refuse a deal that would
“give them peace with the Muslim world.” The source reporting the comment is likely Robert O Malley,
an Obama advisor with strong anti-Israel leanings. [497]

In July, Obama tells Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Salam Fayyad that he
“supports the rights of Palestinians to East Jerusalem, as well as their right to a stable, sovereign state,”
but asks them to keep his pledge confidential. Obama’s promise is meant to calm Palestinian fears that developed from a
June speech in which he said that if he is elected, “Jerusalem would remain the capital of Israel and it must remain

In October of 2008, Obama’s newly appointed “Muslim Outreach Advisor,” Minha Husaini, is criticized for having met with
extremist Islamic groups on September 15; Husaini’s predecessor had resigned because of connections to a
radical Muslim cleric. Among those meeting with Husaini was Mazen Asbahi (who Husaini had just replaced as
outreach director) and Mahdi Bray, who has publicly supported Hamas and Hezbollah, and Johari Abdul Malik,
a Falls Church, Virginia cleric, who told followers in November of 2004, “You will see Islam move from being
the second largest religion in America – to being the first religion in America.”

Dr. Vibert White, Jr., a former top-ranking official of the Nation of Islam, confirms in an interview that
Obama has deep ties to the group and its vitriolic, anti-Semitic leader, Louis Farrakhan.
Farrakhan had hailed Obama as the “new messiah” in his February, 2008 endorsement of the candidate.
Farrakhan has a history of anti-Jew statements, calling them “bloodsuckers” and “satanic.” Farrakhan states that
he enjoys an “open channel” of communication with Obama.

The British press reports on January 9 that Obama may abandon
the U.S. policy of isolating Hamas and will implement communications with the terrorist organization.
This policy change contradicts Obama’s pro-Israel stance during the election campaign.

Obama’s pick for “regulatory czar” is Cass Sunstein, a Harvard Law School professor who advocacy for almost unlimited
extension of rights includes rights for animals. Sunstein believes all hunting and meat-eating should be banned,
and has argued that animals should be permitted to file lawsuits, with human beings as their representatives in court.
