The Truth about Obama

This entry was posted in History on by .

Despite the organized Jewish community publicly coming out and acknowledging that Barack Obama is not anti-Semitic, rumors continue to fly about his imaginary hatred toward Jews and Israel.

This op-ed by Illinois senior Senator Dick Durbin that appeared in the Forward last week should help clear up things:

Barack Obama is a dedicated and proven friend of Israel.

Our friends in the Chicago Jewish community and in the Senate can attest to this. But you need not heed our words; just look at Obama’s deeds. (MORE)

Now what motive does Durbin have to write such a piece. Is he trying to gain favor in the Jewish community’s eyes? I don’t think so. Though he’s not Jewish, many people mistakenly believe he is because he has been such a strong supporter to the Jewish community and Israel for years.

Durbin writes this piece in the interest of truth. And it’s worth a read.
