The Obama Terrorist Factor - Israel And America At A Prophetic Crossroad

By Bill Wilson

It is the timepiece of prophecy, the pupil of God’s eye, and the homeland of the Jews who were scattered to the corners of the earth, but were returned in the fulfilling of the Ezekiel dry bones to flesh prophecy as Israel once again became a nation. But Israel has watched over the years as the US, under the Bush Administration, has winnowed its standing as the gleaming centerpiece of Middle East stability by legitimizing anti-Israel Islamists and terrorists with so-called democracies in Gaza, the Palestinian Authority, Pakistan, Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Now, with the US presidential election upcoming there looms another threat to Israel—a B. Hussein Obama victory.

The radical socialist links to Obama, including domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, his Marxist mentor Frank Marshall Davis and others, do not prefigure well in that socialists and communists have always lined up against Israel. But even more compelling an argument is Obama’s close ties to former Palestinian Liberation Organization spokesman Rashid Khalidi. Khalidi and Obama served on the same Board of Directors for the leftist Woods Foundation that gave money by the buckets to Bill Ayers terrorist wife Bernadine Dohrn. Khalidi, who was terrorist Yassir Arafat’s “go to” propaganda man, was responsible for bringing Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to spew his anti-American and Israel hate at Columbia University in 2007.

Obama said dinner conversations, shared with his wife Michelle and Khalidi and his wife, served as “consistent reminders to me of my own blind spots and my own biases. . .It's for that reason that I'm hoping that, for many years to come, we continue that conversation – a conversation that is necessary not just around Mona and Rashid's dinner table," but around "this entire world." This was reported in the LA Times, and by Fox News and WorldNetDaily. Obama attended church for 20 years under pastor Jeremiah Wright, who honored Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and traveled with him to visit yet another anti-Israel terrorist, Libya’s Muammar Khadaffi. Obama has too many close associations with terrorists and friends of terrorists.

Reverend Jesse Jackson, who claims he and Obama are close as family, recently told the World Policy Forum in France that Obama will make “fundamental changes” --most importantly in the Middle East, where "decades of putting Israel's interests first" would end. This, in addition to Obama’s living family being Muslim, Louis Farrakhan calling Obama the “Messiah,” and Kenyan children singing songs that Obama, their Muslim brother, will destroy America from within, does not bode well for Israel. Yet with respect to their relationship with Israel Americans hold the future in their voting hands. Genesis 12:3 speaks of Israel and the nations, “I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curses thee.”
