Obama's Islamic past

Reader comment on item: Obama Would Fail Security Clearance

Submitted by Maurice (Israel), Oct 24, 2008 at 05:34

Many people are still wondering how Obama is managing to garner so much money from campaign contributions. Though definitely not confirmed, rumors are saying that much of this money is coming from sources such as Arab governments and donors located in the Persian Gulf region as well as countries like Saudi Arabia.

Not only that, reports say that call centers set up in many Arab countries, as well as in the Palestinian Authority, have enlisted young people who speak passable English to call lists of American voters to ask them to vote for Barak Obama in the presidential election. If that is not an indication of his connection to Islam and Muslim countries, what is?

People have right to be concerned about this and if elected, what will be Obama's foreign policy platform for the Middle East in general and Israel in particular? Inviting Iranian president Ahmadinejad and Libyan leader Qhaddafi to tea in Washington may tip America's foreign policy in favor of these countries and away from close allies like Israel.

And the result could be very worrisome.
