AT LEAST OPRAH HAS SOME SENSE:

Obama-church newsletter: Israel making 'ethnic bomb': Accuses 'apartheid' state of creating weapon 'that kills blacks and Arabs' (Aaron Klein, 3/25/08, WorldNetDaily)

"The Israelis were given a blank check: they could test whenever they desired and did not even have to ask permission. Both worked on an ethnic bomb that kills Blacks and Arabs."

The June 10, 2007, newsletter, which is still available at Obama's church's website, identifies Baghdadi as an Arab-American activist, writer and columnist who "acted as a Middle East advisor to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, the founder of the Nation of Islam, as well as Minister Louis Farrakhan."

The piece is titled "An open letter to Oprah," referring to talk show giant Oprah Winfrey, who last year accepted an invitation to visit Israel offered to her by Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel. Winfrey had been a member of Obama's church but reportedly departed in 1986.

What the newsletter does not tell you is that when Israel offered this ingenious weapon to the government of Sudan (the selling point was, as I recall, increased efficiency---you know, those Israelis will sell anything to anybody), the Sudanese merely laughed and said they were doing not too badly without it, thank you very much.

Moreover, they insisted, "We want the women alive. At least at first."

Can't really blame Obama's church for leaving out that tidbit, though.

Jews were the first people who went to the South to march with the Blacks, die with the Blacks in their civil rights marches. Arabs are the ones who enslave blacks and commit genocide against blacks in Darfur. Yet American Blacks support the Arabs against the Jews.

Interestingly, given the questions about Obama's middle name and relationship to Islam, this church sounds a lot more like a Wahabbi mosque than a Christian church...
