LA Times has video of Obama attending Jew-bashing event

The Los Angeles Times has video of Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama attending a farewell party for PLO terrorist Rashid Khalidi, which can best be described as a Jew-bashing event. It's an event I've written about before. (The picture at top left is of Obama sitting next to PLO Council member Edward Said. Khalidi now holds the Edward Said chair at Columbia). But the existence of the video - and the mainstream media's out-and-out refusal to release it - is an ugly addition to an already ugly Presidential campaign. Here's more from Midwest Jim.
LA Times writer Peter Wallsten wrote about Barack Obama's close association with former Palestinian operative Rashid Khalidi back in April.

Wallsten discussed a dinner held back in 2003 in honor of Khalidi, a critic of Israel and advocate for Palestinian rights.

Barack Obama has denied his close association with Khalidi, too.

According to Wallsten the evening not surprisingly turned into a classic Jew-bash:
"During the dinner a young Palestinian American recited a poem accusing the Israeli government of terrorism in its treatment of Palestinians and sharply criticizing U.S. support of Israel. If Palestinians cannot secure their own land, she said, "then you will never see a day of peace."

One speaker likened "Zionist settlers on the West Bank" to Osama bin Laden, saying both had been "blinded by ideology."
Barack Obama also praised the former PLO operative during the event.
And, Obama confessed that his family often shared dinner with the Khalidis:
His many talks with the Khalidis, Obama said, had been "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."

...The event was videotaped, and a copy of the tape was obtained by The Times.
Khalidi and the Obamas were great friends in Chicago and often shared meals together.


On Wednesday I talked with Peter Wallsten from the Los Angeles Times about the article on Obama and Khalidi:

Wallston was one of the few mainstream media reporters to report on this radical Obama associate.

Wallston said that the article was written after he watched video taken at the Khalidi going away party. When I asked him about the video he said that as far as he was concerned he was through with the story.

I asked him if he was planning on releasing this video of Obama toasting the radical Khalidi at this Jew-bash. He told me he was not releasing the video. He also would not comment on his source for the video. Wallston also said he did not know if Khalidi's good friend Bill Ayers was at the event or not.
So, there you have it.

The LA Times has video of Obama toasting a former PLO operative at a Jew-bash but will not release the video.

This is outrageous.

Obviously, this video would do great damage to Obama who struggles with Jewish voters due to his circle of close anti-Semitic friends.

Maybe this is the reason it is not being released?
More than maybe.

Charles Johnson adds that Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn attended the same 'dinner.'

But none of that will stop all the residents of Daddy's assisted living facility - who haven't voted for a Republican since Herbert Hoover - from pulling the lever in favor of Obama next Tuesday. If I thought it would make a difference, I would start leaving these articles around the newspaper piles. Maybe I'll do that anyway.

By the way, in the comments on Midwest Jim's site, there's a comment from Debbie Schlussel who says that the LA Times' original article was ripped off from her. Unfortunately, that's happened to Debbie too many times before.

Quote from earlier thread: Wallston said that the article was written after he watched video taken. . .

Wallston stated he watched it.

Yet the msm led us to believe that Wallston is blind . . .

George Bush Insults Blind Reporter

During a Rose Garden media briefing George Bush accidentally took a shot at a blind reporter for wearing shades while addressing the President. Bush has since called Peter Wallsten and appolgized for the incident.

How can he vouch for a video he cannot view? He can credibly vouch only for what he heard.

You article has not provided one shred of evidence of Khalidi, Said, or Obama of "Jew bashing." Nothing that you have said proves anything!! You are obviously a poor writer or just a plain idiot!
