Beschuldigde Obama Israel van genocide?

Als dit waar is is het zeer slecht nieuws. Vreemd dat dit zo weinig aandacht heeft gekregen.

Report: Obama accused Israel of Genocide


This has at least the appearance of versimilitude, unlike some of the other dirt going 'round. If it is true, it is very bad of course. If not, file it with McCain's "black baby" and the other silly season stories. - AI

Obama at Khalidi bash: Israelis commit genocide, have 'no God-given  right to occupy Palestine'
 Israel Insider

 Award-winning blogger Doug Ross reports that a reliable source has  provided an eyewitness account of what he saw on the videotape of the  Rashid Khalidi farewell bash that the LA Times is suppressing.

 The paper used the tape as the basis for its watered-down story about  the event and has been suppressing ever since, despite massive appeals including an official request by the McCain campaign - to release indisputably newsworthy evidence that could inform voters about where  Barack Hussein Obama really stands.

 The eyewitness source, who Ross calls 'a person who has provided useful, accurate and unique data from LA before' writes:

"Saw a clip from the tape. Reason we can't release it is because  statements Obama said to rile audience up during toast. e congratulates Khalidi for his work saying "Israel has no God-given  right to occupy Palestine" plus there's been "genocide against the  Palestinian people by Israelis."
It would be really controversial if it got out. That's why they will  not even let a transcript get out.

 The eyewitness' use of the word "we" suggests that he is a Times  staffer.

 In a separate development, a European financier, cited by the Atlas  Shrugs blog, has offered a $150,000 reward for provision of the tape.

 After four days of hemming and hawing, and trying out other excuses for the suppression, the LA Times' editor Russ Stanton came up with  the following 'reason':"The Los Angeles Times did not publish the  videotape because it was provided to us by a confidential source who  did so on the condition that we not release it."

 Ross retorts: "How frickin' stupid do they think we are?Someone  gave the Times a videotape so it wouldn't be released? And they can't  publish a transcript?"

 Now we may know why not. At the very least, the leak of the quotes  may compel the paper to release a transcript, or the Obama campaign  to confirm or deny their veracity.
