Obama, Character, and His Better Associates

An Associated Press report in said that "an attorney who volunteered to help Barack Obama improve his relationship with Muslim and Arab-Americans has resigned from the campaign amid questions about his connection to a fundamentalist imam. Mazen associate at the Chicago law firm Schiff Hardin, said in his letter that he served on the board of the Dow Jones Islamic Index Fund for a few weeks, but resigned ‘'as I became aware of public allegations against another member of the board.'" [italics added]

An Obama advisor resigned because of allegations about someone else with whom he found himself serving? OMG. Someone in the Obama camp has scruples. Asbahi's resignation is not at all like the precedent set by the candidate himself after all the published and proven evidence of his connections with domestic terrorists, not only Bill Ayers but Acorn. [see Obama, Character, and American Exceptionalism and Inside Obama’s Acorn ]

Then there is the connection, now severed, with Obama's long-time minister Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. He also had an association with Frank Marshall Davis, identified only as Frank in Obama's memories "Dreams from My Father," a radical activist and journalist had been suspected of being a member of the Communist Party in the 1950s. Obama was introduced to "Frank" in 1970 at age 10. "In 1968, Davis published a hard-core pornographic autobiography under a pseudonym."

"During the the years that Ayers and Obama served on the board of the Woods Fund, [ ] they voted to donate $75,000 to the Arab American Action Network (AAAN), co-founded by Rashid Khalidi, a long time supporter of Palestinian 'resistance' attacks against Israel."

"He has been accused of being an influential apologist for Yasser Arafat. At the University of Illinois, Khaldi and Obama and Michelle Obama and also Ayers and Dohrn were part of the same circle. He funded a fund raiser for Obama in 2000 when Obama ran an unsuccessful campaign for the U. S. House of Representatives. Obama and Michelle were part of the farewell party for Khaldi when he left Chicago for New York."

The other board member causing Asbahi’s resignation was Jamal Said, imam at a fundamentalist-controlled mosque in Illinois. The Justice Department named Said as an unindicted co-conspirator in the racketeering trial last year of several alleged Hamas fundraisers.

The Republican National Committee filed a complain with the Federal Election Commission Monday, 10.06.08, accusing the Obama campaign of taking contributions from foreign nationals who are banned by U.S. law from giving to U.S. federal candidates. This story was broken by the website "Atlas Shrugs," in "The story that Atlas broke (back on July 30th) and that Newsweek's Isikoff plagiarized."

Then there is the question: Is Obama A U.S. Citizen? ""Phillip Berg has filed a suit in Federal court. [Denver Dem Convention: Clinton Supporter Files to Disqualify Obama] The suit was against Barack Obama and the Democrat National Committee. It asked the court to force Obama to prove he is an American citizen.

Obama, among other things chose to "Hire the top gun attorney from the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to fight the case." CAIR has been linked for more than a decade by the Justice Department as a domestic terrorist organization begun by former Yassar Arafat and Hammas coordinators.

Why is it that one of the few advisors to the Obama campaign who has been upfront, protecting his own integrity not to mention the Obama campaign, is a Muslim who does not wish to have his own "Obama-type mistakes" of association?

If there is not more to the story of the resignation of Mazen Asbahi than I have been able to discover, my hat is off to a patriotic Muslim American.

Note: I will be the featured speaker at the Center For Inquiry (CFI) meeting, October 16, 2008, in Portage, Michigan. The topic is "Atheism as a 'Religion' Protected by Courts According to the Establishment Clause" CEC
