Lots of people like to make a mountain out of a molehill. Or here in Palestine the Arabic translation is about an anthill. Nafs ishee. This story about Rashid Khalidi needs to die, now. Not just because it reveals the depths of John McCain’s racism–because he’s perpetuating it–and Barack Obama’s racism–because he’s got no balls to stand up for what is just and moral and as a result his silence is complicity in this anti-Arab racism. But now we can see what usually happens with people like McCain: his hypocritical source has been revealed as the Huffington Post reports:
In regards to Khalidi, however, the guilt-by-association game burns John McCain as well.
During the 1990s, while he served as chairman of the International Republican Institute (IRI), McCain distributed several grants to the Palestinian research center co-founded by Khalidi, including one worth half a million dollars.blockquote>
So khalas with the Palestinian baiting racist discourse. Obama and McCain’s styles may differ, but their end result is the same.
Now for a bit of humor today. Click on this link, Sarah Palin as President. Run your mouse over the various objects in the office and wherever your arrow turns into a hand, click on that object.
