Noted Zionist, Barack Obama

Barack Obama’s attitudes towards Israel and the Palestinians are subject to a legitimate concern of many people. Daled Amos over at Soccer Dad features the Senator’s response to some questions on the Zionist issue in an interview with Jeffrey Goldberg at The Atlantic: Obama: Zionism Is For Holocaust Survivors

Mr. Obama has some nice sounding answers, but, as the Reverend Wright informed us, he is a politician.

Actually, that was also the point made by Ali Abunimah back in March 2007:

“If disappointing, given his historically close relations to Palestinian-Americans, Obama's about-face is not surprising. He is merely doing what he thinks is necessary to get elected and he will continue doing it as long as it keeps him in power.” ei: How Barack Obama learned to love Israel
