Barack Obama: âAmericaâs First Jewish Presidentâ By James Petras Obama asks Shimon Peres: âWhat can I do for Israel?â â Haaretz, November 17, 2008 The UN Special Rappateur on Human Rights in the Palestinian Territories (Richard Falk) has said Israelâs policies there amount to a crime against humanityâ¦He said the UN must act to protect the Palestinian population suffering what he called âcollective punishmentââ¦He said the International Criminal Court should also investigate whether the Israeli civilian leaders and military commanders for the Gaza siege should be indicted and prosecuted for violations of international criminal law. â BBC News, December 10, 2008 We need to ratchet up tough but direct diplomacy with Iran, making very clear to them than their development of nuclear weapons would be unacceptable, that their funding of terrorist organizations like Hamas and Hizbullah, their threats against Israel are contrary to everything we believe inâ¦We may have to tighten up those sanctionsâ¦and give them a clear choiceâ¦whether they want to do this the hard way or the easy way. â President-Elect Obama on NBC Meet the Press, December 7, 2008 December 12th, 2008 "Information Clearinghouse" -- -- According to a nationally prominent Zionist spokesperson, former Congressman, Federal Judge, White House Counsel to President Bill Clinton and early backer of Obama, Abner Mikvner, âBarack Obama is the first Jewish Presidentâ. Mikvnerâs affirmation reflects both Obamaâs one-sided and longstanding commitment to the State of Israel and loyalty to the Zionist Power Configuration (ZPC) in the United States, as well as the long-term and successful effort of a network of financially and politically powerful Jewish Zionists to âembedâ Obama to their âIsrael Firstâ political apparatus. What is striking about the latter is the demeaning and arrogant claims made by some leading Jewish Zionist about their âcentral rolesâ in the making of Obamaâs professional and political careers â in effect denying the President-Elect any credit for his own academic or professional success. (Historically this has been mirrored in the continuous claims of some American Jews to have fought and won the battle of Civil Rights in the 60âs on behalf of African Americans â essentially denying black Americans any independent political role in their own struggle.) Even their personal flattery about his âwisdomâ, âbrillianceâ and âintellectual acuityâ is always linked with his unconditional support of the State of Israel. One can envision how quickly his Zionist colleagues would replace their plaudits with crude insults regarding his intelligence if he suggested Israel end its starvation blockade of Gazaâ¦ Needless to say the Zionists know their man, as they confidently proclaim, he is a cautious and prudent politician, who measures power before he speaks, especially as he has filled the White House, economic councils and security apparatus with Zionist zealots. The Making and Re-Making of Obama The Chicago Jewish News, a nationally prominent Israel-First propaganda organ, published a lengthy article on âObama and the Jewsâ by Pauline Dubkin (October 24, 2008), which quotes approvingly a âlong-time Jewish observer of the political sceneâ, who declared that, âJews made him (Obama). Wherever you look there is a Jewish presence.â This is not merely the usual arrogant self-aggrandizing boasts of a Zionist power broker, with which we are constantly bombarded on so many political topics, this reflects an important part of what Obama has become, especially in advancing his latter day political ambitions. The Zionist self-promoters (ZSP), ever ready to take credit for any success (no matter how notorious and immoral) â Wall Street speculators, Ivy League professors, Pentagon militarists, cultural gurus and even the key patrons of art forms like jazz and constantly rewrite history (or biography in the case of Obama) to maximize their self-importance in all aspects of American life. The ZSP conveniently fail to mention in their articles that Obamaâs white Gentile grandmother gave him the intellectual nurturing and encouragement and diligently petitioned for scholarships for him to attend elite private schools, which formed the basis for his intellectual skills to write, speak and reason as an educated man. The ZSP exclude from their ârevisionist and Judaizedâ biography of Obama, the central importance of Reverend Jeremiah Wright who transformed Obama from an elite Ivy university graduate into an effective social activist. Obama was able to participate and get involved in community organizing in Chicagoâs African-American neighborhoods because of Wrightâs endorsement and broad credibility. If it were not for Rev. Wright, Obama would never have had a social base or organizational experience to engage in Chicago politics. It is only after Obama had gained these skills and popular appeal that the Zionist politicos noticed him and went to work on his ego and ambitions, recruiting him to their pro-Israel agenda and financing his political career. The Zionist re-write of his biography has gone curiously unchallenged by Obama. To suit his new mentors, the Israel-First ideologues and financial backers, he has willfully discarded and insulted his former mentors, as well as any current policy advisers and political colleagues who doesnât adhere to the Zionist line of unconditional support for Israel. Two cases come immediately to mind. When leading Zionist ideologues objected to the presence of Zbigniew Brzezinski and Robert Malley, among Obamaâs foreign policy advisors, the Zionists in Obamaâs inner circle immediately marginalized them with his approval. When the notorious torture-promoting Zionofascist Harvard Law Professor, Alan Dershowitz raised a howl about former US President Jimmy Carter (a principled critic of Israelâs apartheid policies) speaking at the Democratic Party Convention (following a century-long political tradition of honoring former presidents) the Zionist operatives blatantly humiliated the elderly Carter by denying him even a five-minute speech â with Obamaâs approval. âProfessorâ Dershowitz publicly crowed about his success and power over the Democratic nominee Obama in censoring the former President. The conversion and promotion of Obama as an Israel-Firster is an excellent case study of the methods the ZPC has used to build a near invincible power base in the US political system. The construction of the ZPC is not the result of a cabal with a preplanned centrally controlled operation. Obamaâs conversion began through an ideologically diverse, individual, family and community-based effort. As Obama rose from local to national political office, Zionist promotion evolved from local into a nationally organized and concerted effort including campaign funding, business career appointments and paid propaganda and indoctrination junkets to Israel. The ZPC offers positive inducements for the ârecruitableâ and threats of retaliation and intimidation via media slanders and systematic public pillory through most Jewish communal organizations for the public political critics of Israel who remain recalcitrant and refuse to toe the Israel-First line. Turning Obama into an Israel-Firster, according to the Chicago Jewish News article, began during his studies at Harvard Law School where he was âspottedâ by a Zionist professor, Martha Minow, as âsmart, promising, and politically ambitiousâ and a likely recruit. The professor proudly recounts how she contacted family members, including her father, a major Democratic powerbroker, and fellow Zionists who ran a law firm in Chicago and recommended they hire the Obama. In brief, the first step in Zionist recruitment was using a prestigious academic post for initial contact, followed by a promise of career advancement through a professional network.
