What you need to know about Obama's trip to Israel

The New York Times has a report on Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama's Wednesday morning in Israel (Hat Tip: Memeorandum). I won't rehash the whole thing, but here's what you need to know.
“The United States of America has one president at a time — that president is George W. Bush,” Susan Rice, a senior foreign policy adviser to the campaign, said Wednesday. “Senator Obama will not be engaged in any way, shape or form policy-making.”
Susan Rice may be the least controversial of Obama's foreign policy advisers, but here are some more details about her that cannot give Israel's supporters comfort:
Susan Rice was John Kerry's chief foreign policy adviser when he ran for President. One of the major steps Kerry suggested for dealing with the Middle East was to appoint James Baker and Jimmy Carter as negotiators. When furor erupted at the prospect of two of the most ardent foes of Israel being suggested to basically ride "roughshod" over Israel, Kerry backtracked and blamed his staff for the idea. His staff was Susan Rice.
Isn't that great?

Most Israelis know leftists are moral cowards and just plain stupid. Just look at the people who run Israel today. They're trying to warn Americans that things are going to take a turn for a worse if they elect a leftist as their President this fall. Nuff' said.

The so-called "Popular Conference for Palestinians in the United States," a large Arab conference, is planned to take place in Chicago between August 8-10 of this year, at the Wyndham Hotel near O'Hare Airport. This conference is not a mere social gathering - instead, it is a showcase for the most radical Arab "Palestinian" agenda.

This is particularly important this year when Barack Obama, from Chicago, is running for President, and many concerns have been raised in the Jewish community and among supporters of Israel about his commitment to Israel's security. That this sort of event is taking place in Obama's hometown is a travesty!

We must say no to this conference that denies the right of Israel to exist! This conference has a set of "points of unity" that attempt to delegitimize Israel's right to exist. On their website, they say that the conference is dedicated to: "return of the refugees to their original homes, lands, properties and villages; and End of Zionist occupation and colonization of Palestine, including Jerusalem." They promote the so-called "one-state solution," otherwise known as the destruction of Israel, and they are hosting workshops on infiltrating churches and schools - including "inserting Palestine into high school curricula!"

Many of the organizers of this appalling conference have been involved in similar efforts in the past. They have rejected all of Israel's moves for peace and they have been involved in every effort in the past years to deny Israel's legitimate right to exist and defend itself. These organizers have promoted anti-Semitism and hatred of Israel. They are also glorifying Sami al-Arian, the jailed terrorist!

Apparently the Palestinian community in the United States chose to be "united" on this issue - Denying Israel's Right to Exist! And we must be united on this issue - Affirming Israel's Right to Exist!

That such a conference is taking place nearly unchallenged here in the United States while Hamas and Hezbollah and their fanatic brethren continue to threaten our people in Israel and Arabs here pledge allegiance to their same destructive aims, is horrifying! This is the kind of rhetoric that is being promoted and supported by the murderous Iranian regime, coming to America!

The voices of the Jewish Community and defenders of Israel must be heard! Obama must hear from us that he must take a stand against this abominable conference taking place in his hometown. We cannot ignore such events and stand silently by while those who wish to destroy Israel organize their ranks and plan to infiltrate American institutions. It is essential that our voices are heard wherever the ugly head of anti-Semitism can be found, and this conference will be a haven for the most radical Arab voices as well as the left anti-semites that so frequently populate "anti-war" demonstrations.

Please pass this message to others and call upon Obama to take a stand. Email the Obama campaign at info@barackobama.com and tell them that Obama should speak out against this conference taking place in Chicago! Tell the conference organizers that their conference is unacceptable and unwelcome, email them at conference@palestineconference.org!

We must make it clear that we will stand up for Israel and defend its right to exist - against terrorists and their supporters everywhere!
