GET US THE TAPE THE L.A. TIMES REFUSES TO RELEASE, AND WE'LL GIVE YOU CASH!

JewishWorldReview.com | For the last week, this site has been receiving mail -- lots of mail -- asking that we somehow shame the Los Angeles Times into releasing a videotape they admit to having that shows then Illinois state Sen. Barak Obama praising Rashid Khalidi, the one-time PLO spokesman/adviser during a 2003 farewell party in Chicago. Shortly thereafter, he became the head of the Middle East Studies Department at Columbia University.


At what turned out to be a "Jew-bash", Obama, who the polls say will likely be the next leader of the Free World, chose to remain silent. Even after the presentations, the politician who now says he's in favor of a secure Israel refused to denounce what he had just heard. Including, according to the Times:


A " young Palestinian American recit[ing] a poem accusing the Israeli government of terrorism in its treatment of Palestinians and sharply criticizing U.S. support of Israel. If Palestinians cannot secure their own land, she said, "then you will never see a day of peace."

And another speaker likened "Zionist settlers on the West Bank" to Osama bin Laden, saying both had been "blinded by ideology."


The anti-Israel Arab American Action Network sponsored the gala. Obama reportedly helped funnel tens of thousands of dollars to them.


Obama did say, according to the LA Times, that his conversations with Khalidi over the years had influenced his thinking about the Israeli-Arab crisis. The discussions became, he recalled, "consistent reminders to me of my own blind spots and my own biases."


There's likely a lot more information on that tape that the electorate needs to be informed of.


I'm willing to personally get $5,000 to anybody who can get me a verified digital copy of the events of that evening. If readers want to add money, we'll raise the "bounty".


Once we get the video, which we'll need by Friday, we will post it online for anybody to link to. We will return it back to the "public domain" where it belongs.
